health properties of cherries Cherries are known for many reasons, mainly for being one of the sexiest fruits around (with the exception maybe of strawberries). But there is so much more to them beyond the reputation they have garnered as props for seduction in 80′s rock videos. Cherries are chock-full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Sorry, the maraschino on top of your tres leches doesn’t count.

I’m talking about fresh produce, especially cherry juice, which has been proven to be an effective treatment for arthritis and gout (decidedly un-sexy). Plus, cherries have been found to possess a compound that is considered to be a more effective painkiller than aspirin. Ha! I’d like to see a strawberry do that. To get the most out of your juice, make sure it’s made from tart cherries, the most nutrient-rich kind. So reach for that bowl of cherries, mama. Not only will they help detoxify your system and relieve your aches and pains, you’ll look damn good doing it too.
