Tart cherries are packed with immune-system supporting vitamin-C as well as antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress. Polyphenols in cherries help support healthy cells and a healthy anti-inflammatory response, ideal for supporting muscle recovery after a strenuous workout.
The anti-inflammatory properties of cherries multi-task to support healthy joints. One simple way to enjoy the benefits of cherries when they aren’t in season is to sip on tart cherry juice. Look for an organic, unsweetened variety in the juice section of your supermarket.
The MVP of this energy drink is Sencha green tea. Sencha provides a sustained, calm energy from the amino acid l-theanine. Store bought energy drinks often contain high amounts of caffeine and sugar that make you feel jittery and crash once the energy wears off. L-theanine helps the mind relax and reduce stress and anxiety providing the calm energy it’s known for.
The crystal form of this tea blends into the cherry juice seamlessly. Green tea contains catechins, antioxidants that help support gut health and healthy digestion. This type of green tea provides more antioxidants than traditional green tea for ample immune system support.
Fresh lime juice adds a burst of fresh citrus flavor and contains high amounts of vitamin-C. For an effervescent finish, sparkling water is added, providing the fizzy effect energy drinks are known for.
