 Northumbria, England, In addition to making jam and bread, ate cherry fruit to help muscle recovery after heavy physical activity. This discovery brings new hope to athletes run a marathon and inflammatory disease.

Dr Glyn Howatson, an expert in physiology and sports science from the University of Northumbria prove it by examining the 20 runners who will compete in the arena of the London Marathon.

Athletes were divided 2 groups, the first of Montmorency cherry juice intake was given 2 times a day for 5 days before the race, and 2 days afterward. The second group was given a placebo juice (empty without the cherry), with the same time and frequency.

Within 48 hours after the race, the groups given Montmorency cherry juice showed a faster physical recovery than the other groups. Runners in groups are also least likely to inflammation, which is commonly experienced by the muscle after undergoing heavy physical activity.

"Run like the London Marathon distance can cause muscle damage and inflammation caused by oxidative stress in athletes. It took several days for recovery, and in those days a atet physical activity will be hampered," said Dr Howatson, as quoted from ScienceDaily, Sunday (4 / 4 / 2010).

Anthocyanins are found in some types of Montmorency cherries have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Research shows, phytochemical compounds were effective in accelerating recovery after heavy physical activity.

Though still needs to be further investigated, Dr Howatson believes this discovery is not only useful for marathon athletes. Studies done with Jess Hill, a PhD student from St. Mary's University College, the thought can be developed for treatment of various inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Montmorency cherry is the cherry garden varieties (Prunus cerasus), which originated in France, which is also largely grown in the U.S. and Canada. Cherry fruit is the most popular varieties in the U.S., widely used as materials for making tarts and jelly.
