Montmorency Cherry Extract from The Protein Works™ is being dubbed the very latest innovation in sports nutrition recovery following impressive studies that showed it helps reduce muscle damage and inflammation following training. Also known as Montmorency Cherry Tart Extract, it is a powerful antioxidant that can aid the reduction in oxidative stress your body experiences during training. This along with its other recovery enhancing properties is the main reason both strength and endurance athletes are adding Montmorency Cherry Extract to their supplement routines.
Most recently Montmorency Cherry Extract has been shown to help reduce muscle damage. A study conducted at the University of Vermont in America set out to determine how it prevented symptoms of exercise induced muscle damage. Eccentric elbow flexion contractions were performed for 8 days, supplementing on the 4th day. Results showed a strength loss of 22% with the placebo, in comparison to 4% with Montmorency Cherry Extract. Experts also noted a significant reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) meaning it could help athletes recover and therefore more effectively train again the very next day.
Whilst Montmorency Cherry Extract can be taken on its own with water or fruit juice, a lot of experts will recommend it’s added to a post workout shake. This is because the wide ranging recovery properties of Montmorency Cherry Extract have been found to work very well with protein and other nutrients to aid overall muscle recovery and repair, especially during this key post workout nutrient window.
