Issue #45 – Cherry-pick the best ingredients for sports recovery

Power sports recovery applications with CherryCraft® 

The performance nutrition and supplements categories are stronger than ever, with SPINS reporting 35% and 13% growth in 2023. And the market is no longer exclusive to hardcore athletes—it now encompasses a wide range of consumers interested in products to support a healthy lifestyle. 

The promise of faster, better recovery drives purchases, along with the desire to improve overall health and support sports performance and an active lifestyle, according to Nutrition Business Journal’s Sports Nutrition and Weight Management Report. 

Extensive research shows tart cherries can help with muscle recovery and protect against post-exercise muscle weakness and soreness. Furthermore, there is scientific evidence that tart cherry has antioxidative effects and a positive impact on cardiovascular health.
