Any kind of recovery agent is considered the best friend of body builders and hard-training athletes.
Now, pomegranate juice is being considered to have the capability to help in muscle recovery. A recent study reported in Journal Strength Conditioning Research has said that pomegranate juice reduces post-workout muscle soreness in some muscles, if not all. Pomegranate is rich in polyphenols, which help to control free radical damage and inflammation. There are also some studies which claim that pomegranates help in preventing skin and prostate cancer.
Team Masters is of the opinion that any hard training body builder or sportsman would benefit by adding a serving of pomegranate juice to his or her diet regimen.
