Cherries are a nutrient-dense fruit and provide a healthier sweet-tooth-satisfying alternative to processed treats.
Cherries are relatively low in sugar and high in antioxidants, potassium, quercetin, melatonin, fiber, and vitamin C. The nutrients in cherries help fight cancer, cool inflammation, decrease post-workout pain, reduce the risk of gout, decrease body fat, support heart health, reduce type 2 diabetes, reduce jet lag, and promote restful sleep.
Jam-packed with nutrients, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, other berries, and cherries are the best options when it comes to sweet fruits as they’re relatively low in sugar and high in antioxidants.
In fact, berries are one of the body's greatest allies in the fight against inflammation, aging and illness. In addition to fiber and vitamin C, the antioxidants in berries support weight loss, blood sugar levels, brain function, heart health, eye health, skin health, digestion, detoxification, and the nervous system.
Famed for their delicious taste and creamy texture, most people don’t realize just how beneficial avocados can be for helping you achieve that summer beach body.
In fact, avocados are among the most nutrient-dense fruits, providing an excellent source of vitamin E, B vitamins, fiber, and potassium. Bananas are often praised for having a high potassium content, but one avocado actually contains three times more potassium than two bananas! For an excellent electrolyte replacement, enjoy an avocado sprinkled with sea salt.
