Fit food that is natural medicine for your body

I do not like taking medicine unless absolutely necessary.  Before I take an aspirin or Advil, I will try everything else. If I have a headache, I’ll do deep breathing, go for a walk, exercise, I’ll try everything before swallowing the medicine.

If you’ve ever needed an anti inflammatory such as Advil, a natural remedy is Tart Cherry Juice.

6 Health Benefits of Tart Cherry Juice

  1. Reduces swelling: When people experience pain from swelling, they often take NSAID or nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs such as asprin, ibuprofen, naproxin, etc. However, the effects of these drugs can be harmful, especially when you take them too often. A 2004 study found that cherry juice supplements can reduce inflammation and pain-related behavior in animals, showing promise as a treatment for swelling in humans.
  2. Boosts the all important immune system: Cherries pack a powerful antioxidant and antiviral punch. Flavonoids, a type of antioxidant in cherry juice, are made by plants to fight infection. Research shows that these chemicals can have a significant impact on immune system function.
  3. Regulates the metabolism and fights abdominal fat: there is some evidence in animals that tart cherries can help adjust your body’s metabolism and your ability to lose abdominal body fat. One study showed that a type of flavonoid responsible for cherries’ red color, act against the development of obesity. Another study in rats found that tart cherries can help reduce inflammation and abdominal fat, and lower the risk of metabolic syndrome.
  4. Helps you sleep: Studies show that tart cherry juice has similar effects to insomina medications.
  5. Blocks cancer growth: In a 2003 study, researchers pitted cherry juice against the NSAID sulindac, which is the most common preventive anti-inflammatory treatment for colon tumors. Although an animal study, it is notable that cherry juice — unlike the NSAID — reduced the growth of cancer cells. Wow!
  6. Fights inflammation and arthritis pain: Research shows that the antioxidants in tart cherry juice can reduce pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis. A 2012 study showed that drinking cherry juice twice a day for 21 days reduced the pain felt by people with OA

How much tart cherry juice should you drink per day?

The majority of people seem to benefit from consuming two tablespoons per day of tart cherry juice. We like pouring a “shot glass” amount into a tall water glass and mixing it with cold water. Cheers! To your health, naturally!
