Being active or being an athlete has many positive attributes. However anyone who fits this description can find themselves limited to training optimally because of delayed recovery and increased soreness. Add on suboptimal sleeping patterns and they find themselves having to slow down their training capacity. Tart cherries, NOT SWEET ones have been shown to help with reducing inflammation, enhancing recovery, minimizing muscle soreness and improving sleep. Research has even shown it could help on competition day. It is vast to have a food source to do all that!
