Recently, scientists have been paying special attention to the healing properties of cherries (cerasus hill). In particular, recent findings by researchers at the University of Michigan and Arizona (USA) have confirmed the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of cherries - both its fruits and decoctions of leaves, cuttings, which improve the cardiovascular system and organs. For example, good results were observed in the treatment of diseases such as vasculitis, lupus erythematosus, obliterating endarteritis, various types of purpura, other capillary hemorrhages in the skin and under the skin, and mucous membranes.
In addition, thanks to the cherry, fat metabolism is normalized (contributes to weight loss), blood formation, uric acid salts are excreted, even in the form of sand and stones, crushed under the influence of certain substances. Eliminates cherries and the so-called deposition of salts in the bones and joints.
However, this plant was considered medicinal by St. Hildegard (1098–1179), who recommended its fruits, juice, decoction of cuttings for the treatment of gastritis, constipation, heartburn. As for the latter, there is such a paradox: it would seem that sour cherry slows down the formation of pepsin (hydrochloric acid of the stomach), acting, as it has recently turned out, according to the principle of the “proton pump” inhibitor (from Latin inhibere - delay, slow down), that is, it is an effective antacid means not worse than drugs like omeprazole, ranitidine. The healer also believed that every person, especially women, should eat at least 5 kg of cherries per season. Modern biochemists and nutritionists recommend consuming at least 200 g of ripe berries daily. Cuttings also, as they say, will go into business.
