The Health Benefits Of Cherries

Just lately, I’ve decided to include fruits and vegetables in my diet. Since, I really want to lose weight, I should eat fruits and vegetables at least every day. I don’t know if I can still afford it every week but I’ll try. In fact, two days ago, we went to the fruit market to purchase some veggies and fruits. I bought some cherries, apples, grapes, papaya and oranges. And, I think I already love cherries. I never thought that it taste yummy. This is my first time to purchase cherries so I’m really amazed when I tasted it. Though, it has seed on it. I want to chew everything but I can’t. Funny me! Anyways, according to the Wikipedia, Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation in rats. Anthcyanins are also portent antioxidant under active research for a variety of potential health benefits. And guess what, it will help lower cholesterol and prevent from gaining so much weight. This is according to the study funded by the Cherry Marketing Institute presented at the Experimental Biology 2008 meeting in San Diego. So I guess I should continue buying cherries every week. Huh! It’s not only good for my health but it will help me lose weight, too.
