//CHERRIES// Deep, dark and beautiful in colour - cherries are a QI, YANG and BLOOD tonic. They invigorate the blood and expel wind, cold and damp from the body.
//NUTRITION// Beyond their divine flavour, cherries also offer help with joint pain, gout, and insomnia.
Drinking pure cherry juice, once in the morning and once in the evening helps you sleep better by increasing the melatonin in your body. They also decrease inflammation in the joints and help remove uric acid in gout attacks. ▪
