Cherry Juice May Enhance Marathon Recovery

The findings indicated that the group who drank the cherry juice recovered their strength more rapidly than the control group over the 48-hour period following the marathon. Inflammation was also reduced in the cherry juice group, as was oxidative stress, a potentially damaging response that can be caused by strenuous physical activity, particularly long distance endurance exercise. -Marathon Runners Should Pick Cherries for Speedy Recovery

MY COMMENT: Interesting finding- perhaps not, but it seems to me any deep colored fruit juice would help. I'll stick with beer! Anti-inflammatory Effect Of Beer, Blocks Interferon-gamma-induced Chemical Processes
