A Natural Boost to Your Sporting Performance.

Studies show that drinking just 30ml of Montmorency Cherry concentrate with 250ml of cold water, significantly speeds recovery rates and reduces muscle soreness after hard exercise. Montmorency cherries contain high levels of anthocyanins – natural compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These compounds help reduce inflammation and deactivate harmful free radicals produced in abundance during exercise. The result, as demonstrated by a number of research studies, is quicker muscle recovery and less soreness.

Intense or prolonged exercise, training or active in competitive sports, can cause physical and oxidative damage to the muscle fibres and cells. The damage can further increase the likely hood of developing inflammation around the joints with added muscle pain and soreness, sometimes quite debilitating. 

It can take several days after a hard training session for the muscles to fully recover their strength and the inflammation and pain to recede. Training with fatigued and sore muscles is uncomfortable and can result in incorrect training movement and posture (“bad form”) with increased risk of further damage that could become permanent. 

CherryActive made from 100% Montmorency Cherries with the unique naturally occurring compound anthocyanin, the risk of muscle damage and soreness is greatly reduced. This enables faster recovery from a hard training session that can impact greatly on your overall strength, power, speed and endurance. 

Faster recovery, the greater the gains in your personal sporting performance and success


Faster recovery and less soreness

Studies reveal that drinking Montmorency cherry juice (CherryActive) significantly speeds recovery and reduces muscle soreness after a hard training session down the gym.

The Montmorency Cherry contains high levels of the natural compound anthocyanin – a compound with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This compound helps to reduce inflammation and deactivates harmful free radicals produced in abundance during exercise enabling faster muscle recovery with less soreness. 

Faster recovery, less soreness enables more frequent training sessions with improved personal sporting performance.

CherryActive is the leading brand of Montmorency cherry juice. It is highly concentrated, contains no added preservatives or other such additives. 

CherryActive is taken by a host of leading sports teams, including international football teams, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers and runners.

Good quality sleep can contribute to better post exercise recovery, as this is when the body’s complex repair processes are most active. However, many active people, whether regular gym goers or professional athletes, may suffer from exercise-induced insomnia in the form of prolonged sleep onset latency.

Several studies show that drinking Montmorency cherry juice can improve the quantity and quality of sleep.

Montmorency cherries are one of the few known food sources of melatonin, a natural compound produced in the brain’s pineal gland, to control the body’s natural sleep cycles and circadian rhythms. 

Many athletes have low levels of circulating melatonin, which may be a cause or contributor to their sleep problems. 

Inflammation may also play a part in insomnia. Montmorency cherry’s anti-inflammatory properties may also therefore play a part in aiding a good night’s sleep.

Protection from infections and downtime.

Active people, whether keen gym-goers or professional athletes, can be more prone to respiratory infections and other illness, due to their heavy training.

Intense training sessions can cause oxidative stress, which is implicated in muscular fatigue, a low immune response, respiratory and other infections and reduced sports performance.

Oxidative stress is caused by an overload of free radicals, a natural by-product of metabolism (like exhaust fumes from a combustion engine) and are produced in increased quantities during intense or prolonged exercise. These highly reactive compounds can cause damage to body cells, including muscle and immune cells.

Antioxidants are compounds that deactivate these damaging free radicals and are found in abundance in fruit and vegetables. When an athlete’s training loads lead to an overload of the antioxidant system, a state of oxidative stress can occur.

Maintaining a high antioxidant diet therefore helps prevent oxidative stress, stimulate and protect the immune system and therefore help optimise an athlete’s training programme.

Antioxidants are found in abundance in fruit and vegetables. However, particular fruits and vegetables, the “superfoods”, have significantly higher ORAC values than regular ones.

ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a laboratory test that measures the antioxidant levels in food. The higher the ORAC score, the better a food may be in defending our cells from free radical damage.



What can it do for me?

Studies reveal drinking beetroot juice can significantly boost your endurance performance. This can mean competing and training at higher intensities for longer.

Beetroots are a rich source of dietary nitrates that covert into nitric oxide when consumed. Increased nitric oxide levels can lead to increased blood flow to the working muscles. Nitric oxide also makes it easier for the “power generators” in the muscle cells (mitochondria) to produce energy.

This process can lower the oxygen cost of exercise, enabling your body to sustain higher intensities for longer and ultimately provide a natural boost to endurance.

BeetActive is a highly concentrated pure beetroot juice. It contains no added preservatives or other such additives and is made avoiding excessive heat to help protect its beneficial nutrients. It is taken by a host of leading sports teams, including international football teams, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers and runners.
