Cherries help relieve inflammation from arthritis, and they are the source of other healing and restorative properties as well.
C-reactive protein (CRP) is produced by the body in response to acute inflammation, like that experienced by arthritis sufferers.
Researchers at the Western Human Nutrition Research Center in Davis, California, asked volunteers to eat a bowl of 45 fresh Bing cherries and then measured their levels of CRP. After three hours the level of CRP in the volunteers’ blood decreased.Cherries have been a healing remedy for arthritis, gout, and other disorders for many years, but it has only been in modern times that the reason for their effectiveness has been understood.
