Back Pain Diet Tip #4 - Cherries (with recipe)



This is Tip #4 of foods that can help improve the overall health of your back. Today's focus is cherries. Cherries are a great food for your back because they are full of antioxidants and other compounds that reduce inflammation. For example, cherries contain substances called anthocyanins, which provide the cherry's color and also have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Cherries also contain melatonin, which helps with inflammation (and can also help you sleep). In fact, some researchers have found that cherries have the highest anti-inflammatory content of any food!
