Dark cherries contain natural compounds called anthocyanins that are known to benefit human health. Now, researchers in Australia believe those compounds may be able to help with obesity-related inflammation and the health problems that go along with it, such as gout.

To test their theory, a team of scientists from the University of Tasmania will use mice that have been fed a high-fat diet. Their hope is that giving the mice cherry extract will have an anti-inflammatory effect. If it works, a similar treatment may be used one day to help prevent or reverse inflammation in people suffering from obesity, said lead researcher Melanie Blackhall.
