Drink: Tart cherry juice
If your trainer pushed you today and you want to give it your all tomorrow on the treadmill, swap your protein shake for cherry juice. “Tart cherries have anti-inflammatory antioxidants called anthocyanins, which may help in reducing muscle soreness after exercise,” says Sonu Ahluwalia, M.D., clinical chief of orthopedic surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Studies have shown that drinking tart cherry juice before and after exercising can ease pain and may help speed up recovery time, so have some today and again tomorrow.
