Talk about your potent power food: Tart cherries, otherwise known as sour cherries, are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants that happen to also give the fruit its intense color and tangy taste.
But don't take our word for it. Numerous studies have shown this type of cherry to be even better than sweet cherries at reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, and bolstering cognitive functioning. What's more, tart cherries can help ease muscle and joint pain, which is why they're a favorite among endurance athletes and arthritis sufferers alike.
While fresh cherries are available only briefly and require an awful lot of pitting, dried cherries are an all-year, all-purpose alternative that's also singularly delicious and even more versatile than the fresh variety as an addition to trail mixes, granolas, muesli, oatmeal, or yogurt, or as a convenient out-and-about snack.
