Cherry stems

gab_7023_mix

Today I am gone write about cherry stems because we can all benefits. We all love to eat cherries in the summer and throw away the stalks. You can start collect them. Why? Because of the health benefits:

  • They have diuretic properties which promotes proper kidney function and reduce water retention
  • They prevent formation of kidney stones and urinary tract infection
  • Stimulate the elimination of toxins from the body through urine and stools
  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Purifying blood
  • Reducing edema and bloating
  • Anti inflammatory properties

The stems make a great, refreshing tea. I collect the stems and dry them and then I can make the tea all year long.

  1. I never knew that. Thanks for sharing. I was just wondering how long do you steep the cherry stems and how many per pot? Do you add anything else for flavoring (ie other types of tea and what kinds)? Thank you. I definitely want to remember that next time we buy cherries.

  2. Well, that makes sense! Kinda like cherry bark. They aren’t good for cats though so if your cat likes to steal your cherry stems the way mine does, don’t let them eat any.

  3. A caution: all other parts of the cherry tree (not the fruit) contain cyanide. In small amounts you will have all of the side effects listed above but please be careful, too much will cause cyanide poisoning.
