Cherry is good not only as a filling for a pie. This berry helps to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar and fat in the liver, lower oxidative stress and increased production of a molecule that helps the body to properly organize the absorption of fat and sugar.
The positive effects of high concentrations of antioxidant compounds in cherries have been found by scientists of the University Health System of Michigan (USA) After testing its effects on laboratory rats for 90 days.
Enriched carbohydrate diet consisted of 10% of the rodents cherry ingredients. According to doctors, the consumption of cherries can stop the formation of risk factors for heart disease and diabetes - its action is aimed at improving the ability to neutralize damaging molecules produced in the body during metabolism.

Chokecherry calms the respiratory nerves and allays coughs, bronchitis, scrofula, fever, and asthma. It also is an outstanding remedy for weakness of the stomach with irritation, such as ulcers, gastritis, colitis, dyspepsia, diarrhea, and dysentery. It is helpful combined in digestive tonics with such herbs as licorice, ginseng, cypress, anise and tangerine peel.

Cholesterol levels have never been successfully linked to any disease I know of, though Big Food and Big Pharm would like you to believe otherwise. Research "the cholesterol myth" if you want to understand the crooked science behind cholesterol. One reason you see time magazine posting on the cover EAT MORE BUTTER! Basically Eat cherries because they are real natural food that has health benefits, stop measuring your cholesterol levels or artificially trying to manipulate your cholesterol levels. The Wapf is a great source of Information on this highly confusing topic. http://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/ is also another great resource written by Wapf's Dr Chris Masterjohn. Statin nation is a documentary on the boom of cholesterol lowering pharm and all the terrible side effects of this completely unnecessary drug taking.
