Boulder, CO, December 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Twenty of the football teams competing in nationally televised college bowl games are Cheribundi drinkers, including the two teams vying for the BCS Championship, University of Alabama and Notre Dame. Other teams drinking Cheribundi include both competitors in the Gator Bowl (Mississippi State and Northwestern) and both competitors in the Alamo Bowl (Oregon State and Texas). Some teams, such as USC, are having Cheribundi shipped directly to the site of their bowl games.
Cheribundi Whey provides athletes with carbohydrates for energy, as well as nutrients and protein. Tart cherries, a super fruit, are high in anthocyanins, a particular type of antioxidant that fights the enzymes that cause tissue inflammation. Regular consumption of tart cherry juice helps reduce post-exercise muscle and joint pain. Tart cherries' anti-inflammatory benefits reduce pain from gout and arthritis, and they have an extensive list of heart health benefits. They also contain significant levels of melatonin that can promote deeper, more restful sleep.
Recently, the New York Times reported that athletes competing in the London Olympics used tart cherry juice to reduce inflammation and aid muscle recovery after workouts and competitions. Cheribundi drinkers have long since known about the amazing benefits of tart cherry juice. Over 60 NCAA and professional sports teams, plus hundreds of professional and amateur runners, cyclists and triathletes have been using Cheribundi for muscle recovery, better sleep and less pain.
Amy Goodson, a board certified specialist in sports dietetics, who works with professional and collegiate sports teams in the Dallas, Texas, area says Cheribundi tart cherry juice is a must-have staple on the training table.
“Cheribundi is great post-workout beverage because it not only provides the carbohydrates athletes need to replenish and recover after a workout, but it also provides powerful antioxidants to help decrease inflammation,” Goodson says.
“Working with collegiate and professional athletes, they are almost always in a state of inflammation due to the volume of training performed,” she continues. “Finding a product that fights against inflammation, provides carbohydrate for energy and that is tasty is a chore, but Cheribundi is a product that does just that.”
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. Cheribundi is currently available in five delicious flavors.
