Little red cherries are often overlooked for their health benefits, but this red fruit is packed with nutrients and are even considered a 'healing' fruit.

Research says tart cherry juice can battle insomnia, it lessens the risk of gout and is great for post exercise muscle stress. Read on to know more about sweet and tart cherrries... 

1. Cherries can reduce blood pressure. The fruit is a source of potassium, which helps lower blood pressure by eliminating excess sodium in the body. It also keeps potassium and sodium in balance and is said to prevent hypertension.

2. The fruit is a storehouse of pectin, a soluble fibre that helps prevent heart disease by lowering 'bad' cholesterol. It also has powerful antioxidants, which are beneficial in the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

3. Cherries can also ease joint pains and alleviate headaches and migraines. A study by researchers at East Lansing's Michigan State University showed that if you have arthritis or chronic headaches, having a bowl of cherries a day might alleviate your pain, minus the stomach upset so often triggered by painkillers. Eating cherries can also reduce uric acid in the blood, which is the cause of arthritic pain and swelling.
