Press Reviews

Triathlete's World Magazine

There's no point training hard if you don't give your muscles the chance to recover before your next session. Part of the recovery strategy should include rehydrating and limiting free-radical damage - both of which are boosted by Cherry Active. It's made from 100 per cent concentrated Montgomery Cherries and when diluted it reduces muscle soreness; it may even help you to sleep better. It has built up a loyal following of athletes - including the British cycling team and top age group triathlete Tamsin Lewis - who regularly use the drink to aid recovery after training.

"We first heard of CherryActive around the time of the TCR Show earlier this year. CherryActive claims several performance benefits for athletes, and is based around the powerful antioxidant properties of 100% Montmorency cherries:

"Powerful natural compounds present in CherryActive products help to inhibit the body's inflammatory response to exercise leading to less muscle soreness following training and competition and shorter recovery times.

The unrivalled antioxidant power of CherryActive also helps to 'mop-up' damaging free radicals produced by intense training and competition, pollution, chemicals in food & water, and other sources which can lead to cell damage, muscle breakdown and fatigue."

To take a look at the claims and put the CherryActive Concentrate product to the test, we called upon Melissa Arkinstall, an active triathlete and Accredited Sports Dietitian to cut through the science for us, and report back on her findings.

Palatability - First things first, once again I’m using the old dietitian’s cliché which states "the nutritional value of food (and drink) not consumed is ‘nil’"…so would I be prepared to down a glass of CherryActive every morning for the test month? No problem! When I first dispensed the concentrate it looked like a syrup and I expected it to taste quite sweet, however, once diluted, the juice is fresh tasting and slightly sour but not unpleasantly so. For those who aren’t so keen on the taste however, there are some innovative recipes on the CherryActive website, which offer some alternative ways to get your berries!

A 30ml serve of cherry juice diluted with water provides 110 calories and 26g of carbohydrate, approximately equal to a glass of fruit juice. Although whole cherries have a low glycaemic index (ie their sugars are absorbed slowly), juicing the fruit will speed up the rate at which blood sugar rises. For avid calorie counters or diabetics, a capsule version of the extract is available. The juice is fat free, low in sodium and rich in potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants.

I took 20-30ml of the concentrate daily for four weeks to see if I could ascertain any benefits. During these four weeks I raced a half marathon and a 20 mile road race. Weekly training totalled between 17-22 hours. Of course I was not running a scientifically controlled study so I can’t make any credible claims, I also go to town on my post-race recovery with rehydration, refuelling, cold baths and compression gear so it’s impossible to identify a benefit purely from taking the Cherrry Juice. All I can say is that during this month my recovery was excellent (e.g. I was running a strong pace over a hilly, 10 mile course, two days after the 20 miler) and when I experienced the first signs of a head cold, it cleared up in three days and didn’t affect my ability to train at all …..so it certainly didn’t do me any harm!!"
