After analyses, boffins discovered that the juice of tart cherries contains flavonoids, naturally occurring antioxidants with anti-inflammatory powers, reports The Daily Express.

Dr Kerry Kuehl, a sports medicine specialist at the university, said: "Our research suggests that tart cherry juice may work like common non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, used by millions to treat pain and inflammation after exercise.

"Also, drinking tart cherry juice may help people avoid negative side effects of these drugs."
