there are relatively few calories in cherries. There are 74 calories for a one cup serving of cherries. Cherries have an amazing variety of proven health benefits. This post will attempt to outline as many of them as possible.

After doing the research that went into this post, we are considering moving organic Cherries into the left column of unlimited foods in the PEERtrainer Cheat System.

Surprising Study Shows That Cherries Can Help You Sleep

A study published in 2010 that was sponsored by a company who made tart cherry juice showed "statistically significant" improvement in sleep. Interestingly, this study showed that cherry juice was as if not more effective than Valerian Root, which is a very commonly used natural supplement to help people sleep. The study also showed that Cherry Juice was as effective as melatonin.

Important Study Shows That Cherry Juice Decreases Oxidative Stress In Older People

Oxidative stress is essentially when the body has a decreased ability to detoxify itself, which leads to a situation where damage at the cellular level can occur.

When this happens, all hell starts to break loose in your body- cancer, heart disease, nervous system disorders, cognitive decline.

As one gets older, the effects of oxidative stress on the body increases. Along with morbidity.

The Good News!

People have long associated foods like Cherries with better health. But we are just starting to understand why. A 2009 study showed that in men and women 61-75, consumption of tart cherry juice was shown to statistically reduce oxidative damage.

What Is Interesting About Tart Cherries is that they are low in sugar. Which makes the juice relatively "ok" and easily consumable. You can get Tart Cherry Juice at Whole Foods.

As Effective As Asprin At Pain Relief?

Cherries have substances in them which have been shown to block the production of two enzymes (COX-1 and COX-2) which play an important role in the production of inflammatory compounds. In general, plants tend to have these compounds.
