5 Reasons Tart Cherry Juice Will Level Up Your Recovery 📈


HAPPY NATIONAL CHERRY MONTH!🍒


To celebrate this exciting month, we are sharing the nutrition & performance benefits of tart cherry juice 🤩


WHAT are the benefits? WHY should you care?


1️⃣Anti-inflammatory 🧬

2️⃣Improves muscle recovery & ⬇️ muscle soreness 👊

3️⃣Improves muscle strength at the next workout 💪

4️⃣Improves the sleep-wake cycle (to support staying asleep through the night) 😴

5️⃣Provides naturally-occurring carbs to replenish glycogen stores 🔋


HOW?


✨Tart cherries contain a HIGH amount of the polyphenol anthocyanin (MUCH higher concentrations than in sweet cherries!)✨


This makes tart cherry juice a STRONG antioxidant. This is also where the ANTI-INFLAMMATORY properties come in to help SUPPORT MUSCLE RECOVERY & LOWER THE DELAYED-ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS by reducing the oxidative stress implicated on the body from exercise.


***Anthocyanins give the cherries its red pigment due to it being a glycoside of the anthocyanidin group of flavonoids. Flavonoids are natural substances found in deeply colored fruits and vegetables***


✨High in VITAMIN C✨


This is another POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT. It helps SUPPORT IMMUNITY and provides the nutrients our body requires to fight free radicals that cause damage to the body. It also supports the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues 🧬


✨Contains NATURAL MELATONIN in concentrations HIGHER than any other fruit✨


Melatonin is naturally produced in the body, and it can be incredibly helpful to support that hormone production by regularly consuming foods rich in melatonin. THIS WILL NOT MAKE YOU DROWSY, but instead help you STAY asleep once you fall asleep 😴


Stay tuned for a delicious drink recipe in our next post that will make the benefits of tart cherry juice SHINE in these cold winter months 🥶🧉
