Cheribundi is a not-from-concentrate tart cherry juice made from a proprietary juicing process developed by scientists at Cornell University to yield peak antioxidant levels. 200 NCAA and professional sports teams, plus thousands of elite and amateur athletes, are using Cheribundi for faster muscle recovery, better sleep, and increased stamina. Teams that use Cheribundi include the New England Patriots, Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Yankees, University of Alabama, University of Texas, Chicago Blackhawks, and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.
Regular consumption of tart cherry juice is reported to reduce post-exercise muscle soreness and speed up recovery after exercise. Tart cherries also contain significant levels of melatonin that is believed to promote deeper, more restful sleep.
