This study shows that tart cherries may help reduce peripheral neuropathy, a type of pain caused by nerve damage.
Inflammation, joint pain, and arthritis
Tart cherry juice is often claimed to reduce inflammation and joint pain related to arthritis.
In one study tart cherry juice reduced certain blood markers of inflammation in women with osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis.
Trouble sleeping? Tart cherries to the rescue!
Tart cherry juice may be a safe and effective way to treat insomnia and increase the amount of sleep you get each night.
Research shows tart cherries increases the levels of melatonin naturally produced in our bodies to help improve the quality and duration of our sleep!
In one study, participants suffering from insomnia drank either 16 ounces (480 ml) of tart cherry juice or the same amount of a placebo juice each day for two weeks. The cherry juice increased sleep time by an average of 85 minutes! I’ll take a double please! lol
CHECK THIS OUT! Tart cherry juice has shown (in this study HERE) to be just as, if not more, effective at reducing insomnia than valerian and melatonin — the two most studied natural products for insomnia!
Yet another backed study HERE, long distance runners drank either 24 ounces (710 ml) of tart cherry juice or a placebo in the seven days leading up to their race. The runners who drank the cherry juice experienced 3X less pain during and after the race compared to the placebo group!
In a different study, runners given tart cherry juice a few days before and immediately after a marathon. They experienced less muscle damage, less soreness, and and less inflammation.
All this to say, God gave us all we need to help combat inflammation, recovery, and sleep. It’s up to us to utilize it and get back to our roots….or in this case, (cherry) tree! LOL
