We used cherries mostly to complement almost any sweet or savory dishes like desserts most especially on ice cream or salad, they mixed it with wines too. But did you know that these miniature wonder is packed with full of health benefiting nutrients. Cherries are high in antioxidants, help reduce the risk of cancer, inflammatory problems and heart disease. Cherries also contain melatonin, which helps slow the aging process and helps regulate sleep patterns ( well that’s exactly what i need). They are also good source of minerals such as potassium, iron, zinc, copper and manganese. Potassium is a heart-healthy mineral; an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. So what else can you ask for right? But here’s the thing, Cherries are quite expensive here and no so affordable and it’s not the type of fruit that a typical household can have everyday. Sigh.
