Cherries are more than just a highly anticipated, short-lived summer treat. Increasingly, researchers are discovering that cherries are bursting with phytonutrients that promote good health and slow aging. Cherries both sweet and tart are high in vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium, and pectin. Cherries also contain significant levels of boron, which favourably affects bone health. They are considered to be low on the glycemic index, making them an ideal fruit snack for anyone with blood sugar problems. Cherries are also an excellent source of quercetin, a flavonoid with strong antioxidant activity. Quercetin is being studied for its role in reducing the risk for cancer, heart attack, and stroke. Other phytonutrients found in sweet cherries include ellagic acid and perillyl alcohol, natural compounds that have cancer-fighting properties.
Dark, sweet varieties, better known as Bing cherries, contain specific healthy attributes that are largely due to anthocyanin pigments that contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
