Benefits of cherries for stress and insomnia
The cherries from Jerte Valley, in Spain, have high levels of tryptophan, serotonin and melatonin, according to the University of Extremadura. These elements make them an effective enhancer of the immune system and confer them properties to regulate the mood and the sleep cycle. Therefore, Jerte cherries help you to be in a good mood, during the day, and to sleep better, at night.

They are effective for the elimination of liquids and help to reduce the sensation of hunger.
