How Can This Ayurvedic Food Make You Feel Great?
Cherries are warming and stimulate metabolism. You can best experience the warming effect of cherries eating them while sitting in the hot sun. We recommend you avoid overconsuming cherries on hot days for that reason.
Fabulous Fruity FiberJuicy cherries are excellent for dryness-constipation. Sour cherries themselves are a gentle laxative. The high fiber content of cherries create bulky, easy stools.
Strengthen Your BloodCherries are an excellent way to nourish your blood. High in iron, cherries rebuild deficient anemic blood. Their sour taste and anti-oxidants balance your blood and restablize your mood. Cherries are high in beta-carotene, which is nourishing to the liver and strengthening to the eyes. However, their warming nature can aggravate pitta.
DetoxFor Kapha constitutions with congested liver or lymphatic systems, berries are lymphatic movers that cleanse your liver and blood. Emotionally, cherries can help reduce frustration, and emotion associated with liver congestion, allowing you to remain mellow and calm amidst the hustle and bustle.
Moisturize Your SkinCherries are a skin tonic whose sweetness and sourness moisturizes your skin while restoring a healthy red glow.
