Montmorency cherries are a specific variety of sour cherry, which gives the natural tart flavour. Cherry juice research is linked to improved recovery, reductions in delayed onset muscle soreness, reduced inflammation and improved sleep.
Training and competition places considerable stress on the body, and scenarios exist where a goal of accelerated recovery is more important than physiological adaptation. At these times, individuals may be required to perform multiple training sessions or competitive events within or on consecutive days, and recovery protocols are key in maintaining optimal performance.

Anthocyanins are a specific class of flavonoid shown to reduce oxidative stress.What is oxidative stress?
Exercise can result in an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants, referred to as oxidative stress. This excess of ROS can cause cellular damage, supplementing with antioxidants may defend against this outcome of oxidative stress.Does antioxidant intake accelerate the recovery process and blunt training adaptations?
There has been suggestion that oxidative stress and inflammation are necessary for the adaptive response to exercise and promotion of training adaptations. However, there are time an individual may need to priorities accelerated recovery over these training responses, such as multi-day competitions or around key events throughout the year. In these situations, supplementing with Performance Cherry can aid in the recovery process and maintenance of optimal performance.Can Science in Sport REGO Cherry Juice reduce DOMS?
Delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS, is the pain associated with damaged muscle fibres and inflammation, usually as a result of eccentric type muscular activity. A decrease in indirect markers of muscle damage has been seen with tart cherry supplementation.

Nice tasting. Not sure I'm convinced about the anti-inflammatory benefits, but willing to give it a try
Seem to aid with recovery.
Great flavour, easy to use, I find it works for me after a ½ marathon with re hydration. 100% recommend
