 Tart Cherry Juice can Treat Pain, Inflammation After Exercise

A glass of unsweetened cherry juice can work like common non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, used by millions to treat pain and inflammation after exercise, say experts.

In the US study, Oregon Health and Science University researchers found that runners who drank the juice before training for a long-distance relay had 23 per cent less muscle pain than those on an artificial fruit drink.

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."
