Tart cherries and cherry juice are packed with powerful antioxidants to help maintain health joints and sooth sore muscles due to physical exercise. In the United States, the cherry is mostly grown in Northerwestern lower Michigan. This part of Michigan is referred to as the "Cherry Capital of the World". The reason is the region grows over 65% of all of the U.S. crop. In addition, this region also grows a number of berries and other fruits. Berries are such fabulously nutrient-rich foods, but they are available all over the planet in some form or the other. They grow in tropical as well as temperate climates. There are still several berry species within the rainforests that have not been properly discovered so far. So, one thing can be said about them—berries are something that we will never have a paucity of. There is also the fact that they can be eaten as they are. You could just pluck them from their shrubs and eat them. Or, if you are more of a gourmet, there are various delicacies that can be prepared from berries. Though these are the most healthful foods on the planet, they have tastes that appeal to everyone. So, why shouldn’t we take berries up? These are cheaply available foods that everyone likes anyway. Only if we could be more serious about them and include them in our daily diet, things would be much different with our health.
