Is Cherry Juice a New 'Sports Drink?'
Date:5/28/2009

New Research Suggests Natural Anti-Inflammatory Power of Tart Cherries May Help Relieve Post-Exercise Muscle Pain

SEATTLE, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinking cherry juice could help ease the pain for people who run, according to new research from Oregon Health & Science University presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference in Seattle, Wash.(1) The study showed people who drank tart cherry juice while training for a long distance run reported significantly less pain after exercise than those who didn't.

On a scale from 0 to 10, the runners who drank cherry juice as their "sports drink" had a 2 point lower self-reported pain level at the completion of the race, a clinically significant difference.

While more research is needed to fully understand the effects of tart cherry juice, researchers say the early findings indicate cherries may work like common medications used by runners to alleviate post-exercise inflammation.

"For most runners, post-race treatment consists of RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) and traditional NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)," said Kerry Kuehl, M.D., a sports medicine physician and principal study investigator. "But NSAIDS can have adverse effects - negative effects you may be able to avoid by using a natural, whole food alternative, like cherry juice, to reduce muscle inflammation before exercise."

The researchers suggest cherries' post-exercise benefits are likely because of the fruit's natural anti-inflammat
