Researchers tracked 15 athletes over a period of two months. They monitor their vital parameters before, during and after exercise.

Nine athletes consume tomato juice after training, and the other six – energy drink.
 
Results showed that consuming tomato juice recovered much more quickly and muscle glucose levels after strenuous exercise.
