Watermelon juice before exercise combats muscle soreness

Athletes have known this for a while-but now it's been proven: drinking watermelon juice before a strenuous work-out can help relieve muscle soreness.
It's all down to watermelon's amino acid, L-citrulline, which has a positive effect on muscles after exercise. Researchers tested out three types of watermelon juice, including one without L-citrulline.
The most effective was the natural juice with the amino acid, possibly because the body could more easily absorb it.
