New study shows Montmorency Tart Cherry Supplements can help reduce muscle soreness and speed recovery post-workout

Posted on Dec 03 , 2015 - 10:48 am

Sufferers of achy and fatigued muscles may have a new and unique dietary supplement option to help them recover more quickly. In a recently published clinical study in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition researchers from Texas A&M University shed light on the benefits of Montmorency Tart Cherry Powder supplementation for exercise recovery. A short-term dose helped to accelerate recovery from muscle soreness, slow strength decline during recovery, and lessen markers of muscle catabolism in resistance-trained individuals. Led by Dr. Richard Kreider from the Department of Health and Kinesiology, Exercise and Sport Nutrition Laboratory, in College Station, TX the research team used a well established double-blind, placebo-controlled testing method to examine if short-term ingestion of a powdered tart cherry supplement, prior to, and following intense resistance-exercise alleviates muscle soreness and recovery from strength loss. The study looked at healthy, resistance-trained men and matched them based on relative maximal back squat strength, age, body weight and fat free mass. The subjects were then assigned, in a double-blind manner, capsules containing 480mg of powdered Montmorency Tart cherries (as CherryPURE) or a placebo. The study reports those taking the tart cherry supplement reported a significant decrease in post-workout muscle soreness compared to the placebo group. Blood tests also revealed significantly attenuated post-workout markers of protein catabolism, indicating muscle recovery benefits following exercise in the tart cherry supplement group.

The Texas A&M study adds another chapter to the growing body of evidence for describing the beneficial use of tart cherries in post-exercise recovery.

Eating in Color: Easy Tips for a Bright Breakfast

Posted on May 20 , 2015 - 03:01 pm

Numerous studies have shown just how important it is to eat the first meal of the day.

From helping to maintain a healthy weight to improving mental focus in kids and adults, breakfast offers up a ton of benefits.

The morning meal is also one of the best opportunities we have all day to get in some servings of colorful fruits and vegetables, which most of us don’t get enough of on a daily basis. Eating in color – both at breakfast and throughout the day – means packing in more nutrients. Foods that naturally contain vibrant color tend to include phytochemicals that may provide health benefits.

From Beige to Colorful Breakfast

While there are plenty of healthy ways to start your day, many of these foods – whole grain breads and cereals, yogurt, oatmeal – are pretty boring looking on their own. Breakfast is the prime time to load up on colorful phytonutrient-rich foods, including tart cherries.

Ruby-red and pleasingly tart, Montmorency cherries contain anthocyanins, a flavonoid that gives the cherries their deep red color and delicious flavor. And dried tart cherries are also rich in vitamin A, which is necessary for skin and eye cell growth, and it’s vital for a healthy immune system and reproductive system.

You can find tart dried cherries, tart cherry juice and frozen tart cherries year round. There are so many amazing and tasty ways to use them to add a pop of red to your morning meals!
