Rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, tart cherries pack powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. Tart cherries cut down the risk for cardiovascular disease by reducing abdominal fat inflammation, cardiac inflammation and plasma inflammation. In fact, there have been claims that tart cherries contain the highest anti-inflammatory properties than any other food.*
Fresh tart cherries are best, but they can be hard to find. Typically the tart cherries you will find at your store will be frozen, canned or dried.
