CHER­RIES ARE CHANG­ING THE GAME

Star (USA) - - Star Hot Sheet -

It’s no se­cret that celebri­ties go to ex­treme lengths to keep them­selves in the best shape. But the most im­por­tant part of their rou­tine isn’t the gru­el­ing work­out moves or how much they sweat – it’s a smart re­cov­ery plan. Af­ter putting your body through a sig­nif­i­cant amount of stress, it’s cru­cial to let it prop­erly re­cover and re­pair. While rest may be the ob­vi­ous first choice, there are plenty of other ways to boost your re­cov­ery, in­clud­ing con­sum­ing su­per­foods. Hol­ly­wood’s choice? Tart cher­ries! Packed with key an­tiox­i­dants and the high­est anti-in­flam­ma­tory con­tent of any food, cher­ries are the lat­est su­per­food craze that celebri­ties and pro ath­letes swear by. Here’s some ben­e­fits of tart cherry juice:

1. EASES WORK­OUT SORE­NESS

Re­searchers have proven that cherry juice con­sump­tion im­proves re­cov­ery of iso­met­ric mus­cle strength af­ter a stren­u­ous work­out, de­creas­ing in­flam­ma­tion and ox­ida­tive stress. Drink it post work­out for op­ti­mum re­cov­ery, so you can take on your next work­out stronger than ever.

2. RE­DUCES IN­FLAM­MA­TION + JOINT PAIN

An­tiox­i­dant com­pounds in tart cher­ries — called an­tho­cyanins — help to re­duce in­flam­ma­tion, which is linked to a slew of chronic dis­eases, in­clud­ing arthri­tis, gout, car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, di­a­betes and obe­sity. Skip the pain med­i­ca­tion and reach for cherry juice in­stead — tart cher­ries help with­out the pos­si­ble side ef­fects of­ten as­so­ci­ated with meds.

3.SUP­PORTS YOUR GUT

Polyphe­nols in cher­ries have been shown to have a pre­bi­otic ef­fect, pro­tect­ing the gut lin­ing and help­ing the ben­e­fi­cial gut mi­crobes to thrive.

4. HELPS YOU SLEEP

Qual­ity sleep is cru­cial, but some­times hard to come by. Tart cherry juice has been shown to in­crease both sleep qual­ity and du­ra­tion by in­creas­ing mela­tonin lev­els.

My guys swear by it, and the sci­ence is there. Cher­rish has changed the game with re­cov­ery, pain re­lief and an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory ben­e­fits. Cher­rish IS re­defin­ing the bev­er­age cat­e­gory with High Func­tion” — ERIC CRESSEY, Ex­pert Pro Sports
