Antioxidants in cherries might be better at relieving pain than the aspirin in your medicine cabinet, according to a recent study out of Michigan State University. The study claims that anthocyanins, the antioxidants in the pigment of these deeply red orbs, works better to relieve pain and inflammation than aspirin or ibuprofen, and does so without the side effects. As reported in New Age, June 1999, lead researcher Muralee Nair said that 20 cherries a day can keep pain in check.
