With so many of us active for longer in life than any other generation previously, it becomes critical to guard from potential injuries. But as more injuries occur at an earlier age, this can be a challenge.
Being proactive for injury and inflammation
are critical to professional athletes and their trainers. It affects
their ability to play longer (i.e. ability to earn money). Having
watched professional trainers for the Dallas Cowboys, Stars and
Mavericks at many juice bars in town, Gatorade has lost out to tart
cherry juice for increasing performance during workouts and games by
athletes and their trainers.
As the website Choosecherries.com goes further explaining "the tart taste is an indication of the amount of anthocyanins inside.
These flavonoid compounds are behind the sourness, intense red color and
potential health-promoting properties, like reducing muscle soreness
after exercise, easing arthritis pain and enhancing heart health. They
may even help you sleep better at night because they contain melatonin, a
natural hormone that regulates our sleep cycle."
My favorite (as well as 90 professional and college teams) is Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice.
I prefer the "Lite" or 40 tart cherries in 8 oz bottle with stevia to
take the sourness of tart cherry. See how your engine performance with
this before a workout or to sleep more soundly. I use them for both..
Good Luck on your wellness journey.
