Bell, Phillip; Walshe, Ian; Davison, Gareth; Stevenson, Emma; Howatson, Glyn;

The impact of Montmorency tart cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) concentrate (MC) on physiological indices and functional performance was examined following a bout of high-intensity stochastic cycling. Trained cyclists (n = 16) were equally divided into 2 groups (MC or isoener... View more
