A series of research conducted by boffins from the University of Arizona and Michigan dealt with the antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory properties of cherry. They discovered that cherry possesses a unique combination of powerful antioxidants and in particular anthocyans that assist in decreasing the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
Experiments featuring volunteers with excess weight and obesity problems showed that daily intake of one glass of cherry juice during 4 weeks caused a significant drop of inflammation markers. Many volunteers showed lower indicators of uric acid (linked with inflammation and gout), cholesterol and triglycerids (linked with cardiac disorders).
Besides, the total body weight went down in all volunteers and the abdomen sunk in (its volume is linked with cardiac diseases risk).
Cherries that are available the year round, either fresh, dried or frozen, as well as cherry juice, can be easily included in your daily diet to control inflammatory processes.
