Distance runners and cyclists looking for a new way to fuel endurance training might want to consider pomegranate juice. According to a study published online in the journal Nutrition, 22 days of consuming 200 ml of pomegranate juice can reduce oxidative stress from exercise.

Blood markers of oxidative stress remained at baseline for endurance athletes who got the juice, compared to the elevated levels in athletes who received a placebo. The pomegranate juice drinkers also showed small decreases in markers of inflammation.

True Strength Moment: 200 ml equals 6.7 fluid ounces, so were aren’t talking about a lot of juice per day. It’s important to note that the juice used in this study was made from not just the pomegranate fruit, but also the seeds and peel, which may have elevated the antioxidant effect.


Humans are born preferring sweet tasting foods and drinks. That’s one of the reasons sugar is added to so many processed foods. Can this preference be altered by adhering to a reduced sugar diet? A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests short-term perceptions of sweetness won’t change long-term behaviors.

Researchers recruited healthy adults who consumed at least two sugar-sweetened beverages a day and put some on a diet that replaced 40% of their daily sugar consumption with proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates. After 3 months, they rated vanilla pudding and a raspberry beverage sweeter tasting than subjects who didn’t restrict sugar consumption. But their sweetness level preference remained the same.

True Strength Moment: These subjects who reduced their intake of sugar quickly returned to consuming their normal intake of sugar-sweetened beverages and foods. So, like adhering to a weight loss diet, you have to stick with the program if you want to see long-term results.
