If you suffer from inflammation, here is what you need!

Inflammation happens anywhere and everywhere on the body. Your joints can be inflamed, your muscles can be inflamed, and so can your organs.

If you suffer from inflammation you can drink tart cherry juice.

According to Eat This, Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, said, “One of the top beverages for reducing inflammation is tart cherry juice made from Montmorency cherries.”

“Antioxidants like these help buffer free radicals in the body that cause damage to cells,” Goodson explained. “Several studies have shown tart cherry juice to aid significantly in exercise recovery and help decrease muscle pain after exercise. Tart cherries and its juice have also been shown to help reduce pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and other joint pain disorders.”

“When it comes to exercise recovery, tart cherry juice can also provide you the carbohydrate you need to help replenish carbohydrate stores that were used as energy during exercise,” says Goodson. “It’s important to note that a handful of tart cherries does not have the same effect, as tart cherry juice contains more cherries than what you would eat at a snack. Depending on the brand, tart cherry juice typically contains 50 or more tart cherries in an 8-ounce serving.”
