Want to tame in­flam­ma­tion, lower blood pres­sure, and get a bet­ter night’s sleep? Sweet cher­ries can help, ac­cord­ing to a re­search re­view pub­lished in the March 2018 is­sue of the jour­nal Nu­tri­ents. Sci­en­tists from the U.S. De­part­ment of Agri­cul­ture and the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Davis, ex­am­ined 29 pub­lished hu­man tri­als and found that, among study sub­jects who con­sumed sweet cher­ries, the health ben­e­fits in­cluded de­creased ox­ida­tive stress and in­flam­ma­tion; fewer at­tacks of gout; lower sys­tolic and di­as­tolic blood pres­sure; and im­proved sleep, anx­i­ety, and mood. Sweet cher­ries are low in calo­ries, but de­liver high con­cen­tra­tions of nu­tri­ents and bioac­tive com­po­nents, in­clud­ing fiber, polyphe­nols, mela­tonin, carotenoids, vi­ta­min C, and potas­sium, which may ex­plain many of their health ben­e­fits.
