Natural ways to ease sore muscles

Yes I'm sore.  So very, very sore.  I skipped the gym today (even though I was dying to goto TRX).  Today I've already taken a nice, long, hot bath, popped a few Ibuprofen and relaxed all day. 

6 Natural Ways to Ease Sore Muscles
  1. Blueberries -- Blueberries contain antioxidants.  They "mop up free radicals."
  2. Tart Cherries, Cherry and Pomegranate Juices -- These all act as NSAID (nonsterodial anti-inflammatory drugs) much like ibuprofen or asprin
  3. Ginger -- Ginger contains gingerols, an inflammation fighting compound
  4. Probiotics -- Lactobacillus Rhamnossus and Lactobacillus Paracasei decrease cell damage
  5. Lemon Verbena -- This herb reduces muscle and blood cell damage
  6. Omega 3 Fatty Acids -- An Omega 3 supplement will reduce soreness and ease inflammation
 So, I will be eating a blueberry muffin for lunch and some salmon for dinner, all washed down with a glass of pomegranate-cherry juice.  

Happy Thursday everybody!
