The Ultimate Berry Detox Smoothie

Berries and beets are a unique combo that make for a tasty smoothie.

Beets, which are rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytochemicals, can’t be beat when it comes to fighting off achy muscles. Studies show that beet juice can reduce the muscle damage caused by heavy exercise. Pair that with tart cherry juice, which can minimize post-exercise muscle pain, and you may experience quicker recovery times between workouts.
