Watermelon against muscle inflammation | LifePress Magazine

Forget about andol before and after training to prevent painful muscle inflammation, now there is a much more natural, but also tastier way to solve it, and you wouldn’t believe it – watermelon.

All those who regularly train and increase the intensity of exercise know how painful muscle inflammation can be and usually resort to various means in order not to facilitate their own mobility and relieve pain. In these cases, considerable doses of ibuprofen, andol or aspirin are usually used, but there is a much more effective option that does not damage the stomach lining, and it is watermelon.


It has long been known that cherries can reduce muscle pain due to the anti-inflammatory flavonoids they contain and the abundance of nutrients. What is very interesting is the fact that the absorption of phytonutrients helps with exercise, but exercise enhances the absorption of those phytonutrients. Which means that the more and more regularly you exercise, the more effective the phytonutrients will be in relieving muscle pain. Several studies have proven that phytonutrients are absorbed incomparably better in active athletes than in less active people. Regular training can modify or improve the activities of good bacteria in the intestines, which improves bioability.

Back to the watermelon. Namely, the research conducted in Spain followed two groups of men who regularly had intensive physical activity. During the study, one group was given two glasses of watermelon shake per day, while the other group received a placebo drink. Those who received the watermelon shake experienced much less muscle soreness after training than those who received the placebo. Try to apply this tip as soon as the watermelon season starts. Simply blend watermelon in a blender and drink a glass before and after training.
