Health benefits of dried cherries

Very understandably, most men and women reading this post might believe we are exclusively concentrating on berries and cherries over other foods. Simply, yes we are! The reason is Mother Nature has a whole lot of goodness to give and with berries specifically? In addition, we want to share with you the benefits that berries can provide you.

The Health Advantages of Cherries and Berries

Berries are full of powerful anthocyanins, especially the berries that have a darker color. Anthocyanins are the pigments that give them this color and they are present in cherry juice. But, at the same time, anthocyanins are also rich in antioxidants. This is a fact that is really of importance to us here. In order to understand why berries are wonderful for health, we should understand what antioxidants can do for us. Cherry juice and dried cherries, for example are both natural sources of anthocyanins.

Our body is consistently ravaged by destructive elements known as free radicals. These free radicals impair our body in various ways. They slow down the metabolic processes of the body and put it in severe peril. That is the reason why we are not able to do our work effectively when we grow up, even though we could do it quite well when we were younger. As age advances, the impact of free radicals in our body increases. The various processes of the body become slower.

This includes processes like digestion, reproduction, sexual activity, psychological activities, immunity, blood circulation and almost everything else that you can think of. Free radicals impair these processes and convert out bodies into a wreck as we age.

It is at this time that we feel the need to turn to antioxidant-rich foods, like berries. Antioxidants are natural removers of free radicals. By eliminating the action of free radicals, they can bring the body back to its youthful vigor and energy.

The reason why we have taken up berries is that they are the richest sources of antioxidants in the world. Their natural goodness ensures that they are great foods to consume for all the benefits that antioxidants can provide, without worrying about any side effects. The ancient rishis of India lives solely on berries growing in the wild. These rishis never felt much hungry (berries are great appetite-satisfiers) and hence they had lean bodies and were capable of high activity and meditation. They lived a long life, most of them beyond 200 years.

Berries are also known for their high vitamin content. The tart ones, including tart cherries, are especially rich in vitamin C, which is a natural protectant for the body and helps in faster healing. Another important vitamin found in berries is vitamin K, which helps in a healthy body. Vitamins of the B complex, which are amazingly helpful in the overall growth and development of the body, are also found abundantly in berries.

    Your dried cherries are great. I have been buying them locally at the grocery store, but I recently placed an order for the natural no-sugar added dried cherries and added them to a salad and they really have a taste. They cherry flavor is so pronounced and they added some great depth to the meal.

    I never really knew how healthy dried cherries are. I know that fruit is healthy to eat but sometimes I just can’t since I work midnights and most of the stores are closed when I get off work or I’m to tired to shop for fresh fruit. I’ll give the dried tart cherries a try.

    I add a handful of your dried cherries into my morning cereal and I drink a glass of your cherry juice every evening to help me sleep. I told my doctor about your cherry juice and they are now selling it in their office. I’m glad I could to spread the word about your great products.
