Cherries, Cherries, Cherries!!! What can I say about Cherries that is not good….absolutely nothing. I love cherries-fresh, frozen, maraschino, in pies, in juice (Cheribundi) and probably any other way you can think of having them!
Summer cherry season is so short but one of the most delicious times of the year! When fresh cherries aren’t in season I do enjoy frozen cherries and of course Cheribundi. Cherries have so many benefits including heart disease prevention, cancer prevention, bone and pain relief.
All the benefits of cherries are wonderful but the anti-inflammatory benefits are a big reason why I drink Cheribundi just about every day especially after a tough workout. Cherries contain anthocyanins which have been shown to block inflammatory enzymes thereby reducing pain. It has been proven that 20 cherries are 10 times as potent as aspirin and have had positive effects on people with gout and arthritis pain.
I discovered Cheribundi cherry juice last year and instantly fell in love with this tart juice that not only tantalizes my taste buds but helps with my post workout aches and pains. Each bottle of Cheribundi contains between 40-50 cherries depending on which one you choose, that is a lot of cherries working to reduce inflammation and post workout soreness!!!
I can’t say enough good things about Cheribundi!! They sent me a T-shirt, cap, coupons and some of my favorite Cheribundi juice as a thank you for blogging about their product which is just a bonus for me because I love their product so much which is the reason I blogged about it in the first place. Here are some of my prior posts about Cheribundi: Holy Soreness, Friday Favorites and Sweat To Street Sundays.
