▫️Such a great summer snack and an excellent way to get in some nutrients.
▫️Cherries are super pigmented which is indicative of the presence of antioxidants.
▫️One thing I LOVE about cherries is it’s polyphenol content. Polyphenols are a group of plant chemicals that help fight cellular damage, reduce inflammation, & promote overall health.
▫️One review from the journal of Molecules found that eating cherries reduced inflammation in 11 out of 16 studies and markers of oxidative stress in 8 out of 10 studies. Doi: https://dx.doi.org/10.3390%2Fmolecules15106993
▫️Another really cool thing about cherries is that they contain melatonin, which is the hormone we associate with sleep 😴 💤
▫️A serving of cherries also contains 3g of fiber and 18% of your daily vitamin C!
▫️So many reasons to include cherries in your diet ☺️
▫️Happy Friday!! I’ll be at my parents lake home eating cherries 🍒 and I hope you all have something fun planned! Have a great weekend 😊
