Looking for the ibuprofen after an intense workout? Instead, go for berries! Dark berries, such as cherries, cranberries, blueberries, and acai berries are full of antioxidant components such as anthocyanins found in their pigment. Anthocyanins help fight against inflammation and they also help control tissue degradation, they improve local circulation and they build a strong collagen matrix. Inflammation can have many causes and painkillers only mask the issue. Be safe, listen to your body and go for nature’s cure instead! 
Add some dark berries to your post workout snack or smoothie for a refreshing end to a great workout!
