Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice for Runners

I took the Cheribundi Challenge!  Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice is supposed to pack a powerful punch of antioxidants.  Cherry juice is more potent than pomegranate, grape, blueberry, and other juices commonly offered for their antioxidants.  With this knowledge, combined with the fact that I have been plagued by minor injuries lately, I was more than ready to accept the Cheribundi Challenge

The official Cheribundi Challenge is to drink their tart cherry juice for four days.  Before the four days, you score yourself for sleep, athletic recovery, and aches& pains.  You revisit the scoring after four days of Cheribundi to see if it makes a difference.

I have gone over that by two days.  So far I have consumed an 8 ounce serving each day for six days.

On day 1, I drank Cheribundi Whey Cheri – with the juice of 45 cherries, 8 grams of whey protein, & a powerful ratio of nutrients, carbs and protein.

On day 2, I drank Cheribundi Skinny Cheri – with the juice of 40 cherries, but sweetened with natural Stevia so it has only 90 calories!

On days 3 through 6, I drank Cheribundi Tru Cherry – with the juice of 50 cherries and sweetened with natural apple juice concentrate, but still only 130 calories.

BEFORE taking the Cheribundi Challenge, I rated my sleep as somewhat restless.  I rated my athletic recovery as being far too slow (I am so impatient).  Most importantly, I rated my aches and pains as frequent because I was in the middle of issues with plantar fasciitis and related pains in the foot and ankle.

AFTER 6 days of drinking Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice products, I have to say that I am sleeping a little better and my recovery is a little quicker.  As for the aches and pains, I really do feel that the tart cherry juice has made my healing much quicker.  I have a lot fewer aches and pains.  The ones that remain are certainly less severe than before.

Conclusion:

I would not claim that Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice is a cure-all, but I do believe that it gave my body a lot more high-powered antioxidants than I usually give it.  This, I believe, is speeding my healing process.  I have more Cheribundi, and I am going to be drinking it regularly.

There are other sources from which I could get tart cherry juice to add to my diet.  Most of these are in concentrate form.  Cheribundi is not from concentrate and it comes in handy 8-ounce bottles which make it easier to deal with.
