Two red fruits to treat anaemia, gout and arthritis

Strawberries, although they are very tasty, are not very nourishing: 100 g (3.52 oz) have only 40 calories. Thus they are suitable for low-calorie and slimming diets.
Since they are high in salicylic acid and quinine content, they are considered effective remedies in case of gout, arthritis and hypururicemia (especially if dressed with lemon juice instead of wine).
Strawberries have a high Vitamin C, calcium and iron content and are recommended in the diet of people affected by anaemia and lymphatic diseases. Only allergic people and those who are subject to annoying hives will have to avoid them.
Cherries, on the contrary, are one of the most nourishing fruits because they are high in sugar and vitamins content, and are highly digestible.
Cherries too have anti hyperuricemic, anti rheumatic, anti gout and anti-anaemic properties because they are high in mineral salts content: iron, copper, iodine and manganese. People having difficulty in digesting cherries can solve by cooking them.
