Some natural products (like milk) have been touted as better than the traditional and heavily marketed carbohydrate sports drinks. New research carried out by the Greek Chemical State Laboratory found that one of the most effective sports recovery drinks is tomato juice.
The study found that blood glucose levels returned to normal post exercise faster with tomato juice than with traditional “sports” drinks. It was also discovered that the juice helped neutralise harmful enzymes and proteins that develop after exercise.
The research also backs up previous news that tomato juice helps to reduce oxidative damage after exercise.
Tomato juice also contains less sugar than many supposed healthy fruit juices – with a glycaemic index of just 37 it packs plenty of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals with little insulin reaction.
