Ascension Martínez-Sanchez, Fernando Alacid, Jacobo A. Rubio-Arias, et. al. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. June 2017;65(22):4395-4404.

Key Findings: This small double-blind randomized crossover in vivo study was performed in healthy male subjects and tested the effect of four watermelon juices enriched with bioactives on muscle soreness after high-intensity exercise. While all watermelon juice combinations saw a faster reduction in muscle soreness, the watermelon/pomegranate cocktail saw significantly reduced muscle soreness compared to the placebo and no muscle soreness was reported after 48 hours.
