Cherries for the Gut and More
Updated: Jun 9, 2019
Preliminary research finds that cherries positively affect the gut flora, or the microbes in our digestive tract, which affect our health in countless ways from mood to the cardiovascular system and much more. Cherries are rich in anthocyanins, which are very anti-inflammatory and relieve muscle soreness after a hard work out. They can help with the recovery period after exercise to help you feel great. Cherries have lots of antioxidants, which increase nitric oxide levels in the body. Nitric oxide is essential to strong erections and, in women, mediates arousal, as well as blood flow to the vagina and clitoris. Cherries also contain melatonin, which helps you to get a good nights sleep.
