4 Reasons Cherries Are The Superfood of the Summer

December 15, 2023

There’s nothing better than cherries in the summer.

Thankfully, we’ve recently added Dark Sweet Cherries to our virtual shelves, just in time for you to snack on this fabulous fruit all season long.

Our cherries are extra juicy, sweet, and seriously tasty. But their deliciousness isn’t the only reason to love this superfood—read on for more about why we’re obsessing over cherries lately.

  1. They’ve got loads of antioxidants. Cherries contain powerhouse nutrients like polyphenols and anthocyanins that help fight inflammation, prevent cellular damage, and protect against tons of different conditions, like heart disease and diabetes.
  2. They support workout recovery. Say hello to your new workout buddy. Because of their anti-inflammatory properties, cherries can help you recover from a workout faster and reduce muscle soreness.
  3. They help you sleep better. Thanks to their melatonin, cherries are a natural sleep aid. By boosting your body’s melatonin levels, they can help you fall asleep more easily and get better quality sleep.
  4. They’re super versatile. Cherries taste delicious right out of the container, of course, but they can do so much more. Try blending them in a smoothie, dip them in chocolate for a decadent dessert, bake them into a pie or a crumble, or add them to your oatmeal.
