Nourishment Notes


Cherries are a great source of anthocyanins and quercetin. Anthocyanins may help decrease the risk for certain cancers, protect the heart, and lower inflammation within the body. Quercetin helps protect the DNA, the heart, and may lower the risk for certain types of cancer. Cherries may also help to relieve pain from arthritis when consumed regularly.


Bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium, both of which are important for heart health. They are also a good source of fiber and antioxidants.


Spinach is a nutrient powerhouse. It’s packed with antioxidants to help reduce inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis. It also contains nutrients and vitamins that may help lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes.


Cinnamon may help lower inflammation within the body, and help reduce symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.


Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, making it rich in folate and vitamin K. It also contains phytonutrients, plant-based compounds that may help lower the risk of cancer.
