The tart cherry is the most popular sour cherry in the United States and Canada. It is often used in preserves, jams, and cherry pies, along with a variety of other uses. While these cherries may be less sweet than regular cherries, they come with far better benefits to one’s health than the sweet cherries.

Here are some of the best benefits of these tart cherries.

 

Pain Relief

Tart cherries contain high levels of antioxidants which may help relieve the pain of arthritis and osteoarthritis. In fact, the anthocyanins present in tart cherries have even been compared to ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen for their anti-inflammatory properties.

 

Rich in Antioxidants

The anthocyanins in tart cherries and other antioxidant compounds provide high levels of antioxidant levels in every serving. This can contribute to fighting pain and even chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

 

Improved Sleep

Tart cherries are a natural source of the widely known compound, melatonin. Melatonin is a chemical that helps regulate the sleep cycle. According to studies, consumption of tart cherries two times a day for two weeks increased the sleep time of adults by 84 minutes among older adults with insomnia compared to the control group.

The adults eating the tart cherries also reported more restful sleep as well.

Can Improve Memory

The antioxidants in tart cherries can help to improve cognitive function. Studies have even found tart cherries may help improve memory and language skills in dementia patients.

On top of cognitive function, tart cherries can greatly help your physical function, especially your recovery after a workout. They can greatly aid in reducing soreness.
