Cherries are an excellent source of beta carotene (also known as Vitamin A), a nutrient that is critical for skin wellness, helping protect the skin from sun damage, and crucial to vision and eye health. They are also packed with vitamins C, E, potassium, magnesium, iron folate and fiber. Small fruit.. big benefits!

You know your body needs antioxidants, right? Well, cherries contain special ones called anthocyanins [an-thuh-SAHY-uh-nins], which aid in the reduction of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Anthocyanins also help combat inflammation, and symptoms of arthritis. They have been proven to be cancer eliminating agents. They help to keep a check on any cancer cells present in the body and stop them from growing uncontrollably. (Click here for more on this amazing antioxidant.)

Cherries can help you get a proper dose of beauty sleep! They are one of the few food sources that contain melatonin, an antioxidant that helps to regulate heart rhythms and our body’s sleep cycles. Containing five times more than blackberries or strawberries, cherries can actually improve the quality of your sleep.

Since cherries are high in water content, they contribute to the overall hydration of the body, which is vital for bright, vibrant and clear skin. Water also helps the body flush away toxins. This allows for a smooth flow of nutrients into skin cells, so that the skin appears firmer, clearer and healthier. For other ways to “eat your water,” click here.
Cherries are a delicious way to get a powerful dose of vitamins from the inside out. Word to the wise… even though cherries are easily available all year round in different forms – dried, canned, frozen, jams, juice – true joy and deliciousness comes from eating them fresh!
