anti-oxidants

Cherry juice :)

Claims: Reduces post-workout muscle aches and pains.

Evidence: A study in the most recent British Journal of Sports Medicine looked at gym-goers who were given either a placebo or the juice of 50-60 Montmorency cherries twice a day for eight days. Midway through the trial they did 40 bicep curls, lifting as much weight as they could with one arm. Two weeks later, they repeated the process on the opposite arm, having taken the other drink. There was less reduction in strength and less pain with the cherry juice, reported researchers at the human perform-ance laboratory of the University of Vermont.

Verdict: "There is a high concentration of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories in all cherries, but Montmorency cherries in particular," says Professor Declan Connolly, who led the study. Lots of ordinary cherries would have the same benefits. You can buy cartons of pre-squeezed juice in many supermarkets.

how are oxidants produced?

how do they cause pain?

how does inflammation occur after a workout? :cry:
