4 New Food Trends That Help Boost Recovery

Whether to fight inflammation or reduce soreness, a variety of products are being targeted to both athletes and the general public—everyone should feel better.

A product such as Gaia Herbs TurmericBoost can be used in a smoothie or to spice up a dish. Turmeric is particularly in right now for decreasing inflammation. Bone broth has become the new savory beverage marketed to runners, because of its hydration and support for healthy joints. The fact that it can be homemade or store bought offers a lot of versatility. Tart cherries and beets are also showing up everywhere. Some say beets are the new kale (assuming you jumped on that leafy green wagon), and even beet eschewers may like the crispy Rhythm Superfoods Beet Chips.
