Tart Cherry Juice for Climbers

Created by Lindsay Opie, RDN

Have you heard the buzz about tart cherry juice? It can help with muscle soreness, recovery, inflammation, and sleep. It has natural melatonin in it. So if you’re thinking about using it to help with soreness after a tough workout, drink it at night. You can eat dried cherries as a snack throughout the day, drink small “shots” during the day, or drink the juice at night (some suggest around 12 oz before bedtime).
