Tart Cherries May Enhance Endurance Exercise Performance

Tart Cherries May Enhance Endurance Exercise Performance

Previous research has found that tart cherries may help joint health, improve sleep quality, and reduce muscle damage due to exercise. Now a new study has found that tart cherry concentrate may help improve endurance exercise performance.

 

For their study, researchers from the University of Saskatchewan analyzed data from ten studies with a total of 147 participants. All the studies were randomized, controlled trials with endurance exercise performance testing. Tart cherry juice concentrate in juice or powdered form was taken for 7 days to 1.5 hours before testing.

 

The researchers found that taking tart cherry concentrate prior to performing endurance exercise significantly improved performance. They believe the benefits seen are a result of the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of tart cherries.

 

The study was published online ahead of print on January 27, 2020 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.
