The Cheribundi 7 Day Challenge – Follow Up

About a month ago I wrote a post about how I’d be taking the 7-Day Cherry Challenge with Cheribundi.

Well, I’m sure you’re sick of hearing this excuse, but travel, moving, new job, blah, blah, blah, and here we are (much!) more than 7 days later and I’m just getting around to sharing my thoughts on the challenge – and a giveaway!

Here’s a quick review from last post…

What I received:

  • Tart Cherry Juice (100% juice)
  • Tart Cherry Juice Light (65% juice + water and natural sweetener)
  • Tart Cherry Juice – Relax (65% juice + L-Theanine)
  • Tart Cherry Juice – Restore (65% juice + electrolytes & vitamins)
  • Tart Cherry Juice – Rebuild (95% juice + whey protein)

The Magical Benefits of Cherry Juice:

  • antioxidants to reduce pain and inflammation
  • natural melatonin supports a deeper more restful sleep
  • anti-inflammatory properties help athletes recover faster

Cherry Juice Samples

Taste

The Tart Cherry Juice, Light, Relax and Restore all look like the sample above on the right, the only one that looks and tastes a little different is the Rebuild which is slightly thicker due to the added whey protein. All are very light and refreshing (especially if they’re nice and cold!).

*Oh, and I should note while I really do like Cheribundi, I actually don’t like cherries!*

My 7-Days

I have to admit I am TERRIBLE at remembering to do things daily, so I drank the cherry juice for 2 days, then of course missed a day – oops!  Since it’s important for the cherry juice to be in your system for a few days to start working it’s magic, I decided to start the 7 days over.  After that I managed to get 7-days straight!

Personal Results

So the interesting thing is in hindsight it’s almost good that this review took me a bit of time to write, because had I written it immediately after the 7 days was up I may have said that I didn’t think I really experienced any of the benefits…

However, about a week or so after I stopped drinking the Cheribundi I was on a run and was getting a little frustrated that my knee was bothering me.  I distinctly remember thinking, “ugh, this stinks my knee hasn’t hurt in awhile.”

Ummm, lightbulb!  Apparently the cherry juice had been working it’s anti-inflammatory magic and I hadn’t even noticed until the pain started to come back!

  1. I love dried cherries and I do think they helped my runner’s knee a few years ago. I have no idea if it’d help my injury now but I may be tempted to get them again.

  2. Ooh, yay! I wanted to see how you felt after doing the challenge. I’ve been drinking the restore after long runs I’m terrible at remembering to do things daily too. I signed up for the challenge!
