Cherry juice appears to be the real deal for protecting muscle tissue from damage during intense exercise ranging from marathons to monster weight-training workouts. A London South Bank University study found that cherry juice accelerated recovery after intense strength exercise. Subjects did 10 sets of 10 reps of knee extensions at 80 percent of 1-repetition maximum. They speculated that chemicals in cherry juice, such as flavonoids and anthocyanins, prevented muscle oxidative damage and inflammation associated with exercise recovery.
