Newest studies illustrate that at least one in four women are trying to cope with arthritis, gout or chronic headaches. If you’re one of these people, a daily bowl of cherries may soothe your pains, without the stomach upset many times caused by today’s painkillers, say scientists at East Lansing ’s Michigan State University . Their studies reveals that anthocyanins, the compounds that give cherries their incredible red color, are anti-inflammatories ten times better than ibuprofen and aspirin. “Anthocyanins help shut down the powerful enzymes that begin tissue inflammation, so they can prevent, as well as treat, many different kinds of pain,” explains Muraleedharan Nair, Ph.D., professor of food science at Michigan State University . Sugestions: Indulge In 20 cherries (fresh, frozen or dried) daily, then continue until your pain goes away.
