Tart cherries are amazing.
I’ve always loved cherries. And when I learned that they are actually good for you (when I was much younger) I was thrilled and that much happier cause I had a new reason to eat even more of my favorite fruit.
Do you like tart cherries?
You should. Particularly if you workout a lot…
Did you know that tart cherry juice may actually help ease muscle pain associated with intense exercise? It’s true! There’s actually more and more athletes and weekend warriors who are including tart cherry juice into their own training routine.
There’s so much more that goes into what makes tart cherries freaking awesome.
Tart cherries are fabulous for recovery and to prove it, the Cherry Marketing Institute created the 7-Day Tart Cherry Juice Challenge, where you drink tart cherry juice every day for 7 days to aid in your workout recovery.
The challenge is pretty awesome and it’s totally backed by research too: Most of the exercise recovery studies have provided people with just two 8-oz servings of tart cherry juice per day (equivalent to 100 Montmorency cherries! Woah!) to aid in recovery. (source)
The research shows that natural compounds in tart cherries, including anthocyanins, may help with inflammation, muscle damage, and oxidative stress – all things associated with soreness after a workout. (source)
Why wouldn’t you wanna check to see if it works?
I’m sure it would! So I’m trying it myself for the next 7 days.
To kick the challenge off I wanted to share a yummy recipe I created using their tart cherry juice.
