Pain-Killing Foods #5: Cherries

January 22, 2015 1 min read

Who doesn't love the tart taste of cherries? If you're looking for a fruit that offers rich flavor and just the right amount of acidity, it doesn't get better than cherries. Turns out that these little fruits can help you to get rid of pain as well! Cherries are rich in antioxidants, specifically anthocyanins that give them their bright red and dark purple color. These anthocyanins can help to fight cancer, but they can also help to reduce chronic and cardiovascular disease--including gout, arthritis, heart disease, and more. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="785"] Source: longosblog.com[/caption] Eating cherries on a daily basis can help to reduce the pain caused by gout and arthritis, which are characterized by swelling around the joints. The antioxidants in cherries have special anti-inflammatory properties, so they can help to reduce the swelling that is causing the pain. A 2009 study conducted in Oregon found that drinking tart cherry juice can also help to reduce muscular pain in athletes. The participants suffered from less pain post-workout and had a faster recovery time than those who didn't drink cherry juice.
