Superfoods – Sour cherries

We live in the times of prosperity humanity have never experienced before, but we tend to make incorrect dietary choices.

We eat too much, too frequently and choose wrong products. Do you know that illnesses resulting directly from “eating too much” kill most people in developed countries? Even cancers – illnesses that probably everyone fears – are strongly correlated with inappropriate diet.

Nature comes to the rescue with a wide range of excellent products. Luckily, more and more people discover the benefits of supplementing diet with superfoods. They contain valuable nutrients, have great taste, health and energetic values. Superfoods include products that show many beneficial properties. They are an optimum choice for everyone who wish to improve their health, strengthen their immune system, increase production of serotonin (hormone of happiness) and even their sexual potential.

Many articles have been published lately about various positive effects of consuming superfoods such as goji berries, spirulina and maca root. However, there is also another product that can surprise you:
