If you workout, and if you feel muscle pain after your routine, you don’t have to suffer. According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, the best way to deal with muscle pain is to drink tart cherry juice because its compounds help reduce muscle soreness and speed healing.
The test, conducted by Dr. Declan A.J. Connolly, involved fourteen male college students. The students drank 12 fluid ounces of tart cherry juice, twice a day for eight straight days. On the fourth day, they did elbow contractions. When their results were compared against a placebo group, it showed those who drank cherry juice experienced significantly decreased symptoms of muscle damage and, in addition, showed speedier healing.
To achieve the same healthy effects as the cherry drinking students, drink 12 ounces of tart cherry juice before or after your workouts. Tart cherry juice can be found online at Cherry Pharm or at your local health food store. If you try the tart cherry juice and you suffer from stomach acid, one reader suggested tart cherry joint formula in capsules. They have less sugar and more concentrated.
