Cheribundi: Tart Cherries Year Round & a Giveaway!

I love tart cherries. But being in NE Ohio, I only get to eat them for a short period of time when they're in season. I know I can get cherry pie filling to incorporate into a few things, but I'm cool on the aluminum taste that comes with it. So I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to try Cheribundi! With each sip my mouth would water just knowing that the tart cherry taste was coming. Yep, it was that kind of excitement.


But there's more to Chribundi's tart cherry juices than meets the eye. First, let's start with the cherry itself. Cherries are a superfruit packed with phytonutrients like carotenoids which not only give the cherry it's red color, but helps to protect against certain cancers & heart disease (to name a couple). They're also known to help with pain relief from inflammation in muscles & joints, muscle recovery & to help you sleep better by encouraging melatonin production (the hormone that makes you sleepy). What makes Cheribundi stand out, is that they make their tart cherry juices from gently pressed fresh cherries. You can even see how many cherries are in each bottle since it tells you right on the front!

Tart Cherry Juice
Made with reconstituted apple juice & 50 cherries per bottle, giving you 100% juice! And let me be the one to say that 50 tart cherries packed in an 8oz. bottle is a cherry lovers dream! 

 Tart Cherry Juice Light
The same classic flavor as regular tart cherry juice, only made with less sugar & 40 cherries per bottle.


Tart Cherry Rebuild
Made with 45 cherries, apple juice concentrate & protein whey. There is a bit of a difference in taste because of the whey, but to me it wasn't that noticeable. of course I'm a fan of protein shakes & bars along with a good workout to help build muscle.

 Tart Cherry Restore
40 cherries, electrolytes, vitamins & a natural vanilla flavor is the perfect go to after a tough workout.

 Tart Cherry Relax
Made with 40 cherries & L-Theanine, a natural occurring melatonin. Relax does just what it says. I didn't think a mouth watering tart cherry drink could help me unwind, but it did.

And if you head over to Cheribundi's Facebook page, you can take their 7 Day Challenge (& get coupons just for participating). It's really simple, just drink 2-8oz. bottles of Cheribundi on day one, then 1-8oz. bottle for the next 6 days. I took the challenge myself & was amazed at my increased muscle recovery (I sleep like a baby as long as the kids let me). Actually, I decided to really put Cheribundi to the test by keeping my workouts short & simple for another week (mostly yoga). Then I switched it all up with some light weights, double crunches, push-ups & squats & some workout DVD's (hula, total body & even some old school MTV's The Grind). To say that I felt it after day one is an understatement. So I drank 1-8oz. bottle of Cheribundi for the next 4 days (my last 4 bottles). Again my muscle recovery time was amazing!
