June to September is Cherry season and that means buckets of this delicious and antioxidant-packed fruit.

A specific type of antioxidant (called flavonoids) is present in cherries, and may help prevent memory loss. These same antioxidants may also help in workout recovery by decreasing the amount of oxidative damage done during workouts.

Studies have also shown that drinking cherry juice may improve verbal fluency in older people with mild or moderate dementia.
