superfruits - a unique group
Researchers continue to explore the existence of “superfruits” - a unique group of nutrient-rich fruits that contain natural compounds shown to have potential disease fighting properties.
Few fruits fall into this category, but the cherry should be considered one of them. Emerging research shows fresh cherries are a rich source of certain antioxidants and contain other phytonutrients - plant pigments that have been linked to a variety of health promoting benefits, including anti-inflammatory, anti- cancer, anti-diabetes, and anti-obesity effects. Cherries provide a unique combination of phytonutrients in one package that work together to deliver health benefits not available in antioxidant supplements or pills.
