According to a growing body of research, tart cherries may help athletes reduce muscle damage and exercise-related pain to recover faster from a tough workout. It’s the antioxidant compounds in tart cherries – called anthocyanins – that are linked to reducing pain and inflammation, and at levels comparable to some well-known pain medications. Available year-round in dried, frozen and juice forms, tart cherries are a convenient and flavorful way to manage pain – from topping oatmeal or a salad with dried cherries, or making a post-workout smoothie with cherry juice and low-fat yogurt, it’s easy to fuel up with tart cherries.
