Cherries — Post-Workout Recovery

The Cherry Marketing Institute has created the Red Recovery Routine, which includes cherries in managing post-exercise pain.

“Cherries contain anthocyanins 1 and 2 that researchers believe can have a significant impact on relieving muscle and joint soreness more quickly. And, cherries’ powerful bundle of antioxidants and carbohydrates offer added nutrition active people need,” according to CMI.

Full disclosure: I am the daughter of a cherry grower, and a firm believer in the health benefits of tart cherries. I also mix a little tart cherry juice concentrate in my water bottles after my workouts.
