According to the results of a recent study conducted by researchers at the USDA-ARS Western Human Nutrition Research Center, cherry growers are pleased to announce that consuming about 45 (280 g) cherries daily may significantly decrease circulating concentrations of specific inflammatory biomarkers in the blood. The findings of the study were published in the Journal of Nutrition and are indicative of good news for those who want to reach for healthier snacks and ingredients on a daily basis.

Rich in fiber, potassium, and melatonin, cherries are taking center stage in this tasty arena. Available fresh during the summer harvest season or frozen and dried year round, cherries are a delicious way to bite the inflammatory burn and add some pizazz to your menu. Inflammation is indeed the pits when it comes to health and wellness, yet cherries are a simple and delicious way to offer healthy support whether they are served fresh and eaten out of hand or added to yogurt, granola, oatmeal, fruit salads and even savory preparations.

Although the 2014 cherry harvest season has yet to start, B.J. Thurlby of the NW Cherry Growers reports that this year's cherry season is off to a great start thanks to ideal weather. As a result the growers are anticipating a strong harvest for the 2014 season starting in June. Consumers interested in working more cherries into their diets can find resources and recipes at www.nwcherries.com
