Fatigue Strength & Fitness

 
Exercise is unarguably one of the greatest things you can do for your health and wellness. But strenuous physical activity increases the risk of musculoskeletal injury and can induce muscle damage resulting in acute inflammation and decreased performance.The typical treatments such as rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective, however, the side effects such as gastric ulcerations are undesirable.

Tart cherry juice has been proven to naturally decrease inflammation by improving the body’s capacity to resist oxidative damage during acute oxidative stress. It is rich in polyphenols which improve the body’s antioxidant defenses – this allows the body to recover faster and reduces the symptoms of exercise induced muscle damage. Some studies have shown that it can reduce exercise related strength losses by up to 18% as well as reduce after exercise soreness and pain.
