Cherries are a great source of antioxidants. Cherries have quercetin, which is a flavonoid that has anti-cancer and heart protecting qualities. Cherries are also anti-inflammatory and help to minimize symptoms of arthritis and gout. Plus they have soluble fiber, potassium, vitamin C.
Fresh cherries will have green stalks and glossy skin. The deeper the color, the more antioxidant compounds they contain, so always choose red or black cherries.
