AMAZING: Natural Dried Cherries - $6 Per Lb Full Of Antioxidants Perfect As Healthy Fruit Snack For Kids And Adults

Someone recommended these Tart Dried Cherries to us.  We were skeptical as the price was just too good to be true, and you usually get what you pay for.  Boy, were we proven wrong.   10 boxes of these mighty flavorful Natural Dried Cherries
 later -  I can safely say: "we're Hooked".  We snack on these right out of the bag, put them in salads, add them to morning cereal, and make cherry pie, just to name a few.  These are   the most delicious dried cherries we have ever tasted, and we have tried at least 5 different varieties in the past, only to find too much sugar, and lots of preservatives in what we've tried.  These tart cherries, however, are all natural, and just lightly sweetened.

Health Tips

1. In addition to being rich in potassium, vitamin C, and B complex, research has shown that cherry consumption can help the body prevent heart disease and cancer, as well as provide pain relief and improved bone health. These health benefits are possible due to the antioxidants found in cherries, the most vital of which are the flavonoids anthocyanins and quercetin, and the phenolic acid amygdalin.

2. According to researchers, a flavonoid found in cherries that has anticarcinogenic properties called quercetin can help to prevent heart disease. Cherries are considered a nutritionally significant source of quercetin, containing large quantities per serving that surpass most fruits.

3. A phenolic acid called amygdalin, also termed Vitamin B17 and laetrile, found in the kernels of cherries and other fruits, has been shown to reduce tumor size and further spread of cancer, as well as to alleviate the pains of the cancerous process. Populations such as the Hunza in Pakistan that have always incorporated amygdalin into their diets have remained cancer free, leading scientists to believe that its consumption could also be a powerful cancer prevention food.

4. Anthocyanins found in cherries also block inflammatory enzymes, reducing pain. In fact, 20 cherries are 10 times as potent as aspirin and have positive effects on gout and arthritis pain.

5. Sweet cherries are also considered to be excellent sources of boron, providing 396 ug/100g. Boron consumption, coupled with calcium and magnesium has been linked to increased bone health.

6. Tart cherries naturally pack a health-promoting punch that provides pain relief for many consumers. Ongoing research shows that Montmorency tart cherries are a rich source of antioxidants, including melatonin, which may help to relieve the pain of arthritis, gout, and possibly fibromyalgia. To date, no other fruit or vegetable has been found to have the pain relieving properties of tart cherries. In addition, the antioxidants in tart cherries can help fight cancer and heart disease.
