Cheribundi is a fresh pressed tart cherry juice made from a proprietary juicing process developed by scientists at Cornell University to yield peak antioxidant levels. Regular consumption of tart cherry juice is reported to reduce post-exercise muscle and joint pain. Recent studies have shown that the anti-inflammatory properties of tart cherries may reduce pain from gout and arthritis and they have an extensive list of heart health benefits. Tart cherries also contain significant levels of melatonin that is believed to promote deeper,
more restful sleep.
Over 100 NCAA and professional sports teams, plus hundreds of professional and amateur runners, cyclists, and triathletes are currently purchasing Cheribundi for faster muscle recovery, better sleep and less pain.
Cheribundi tart cherry juice products are available nationwide in grocery, natural, and specialty retailers including Kroger, Walmart, Whole Foods, Rite Aid, Wegmans, Sprouts, The Fresh Market, and more. Please visit www.cheribundi.com for more information.
