4 Solutions For Sore, Achy Muscles

If workouts tend to leave your mucles sore and cranky, you might want to give fish oil a try. In a recent Indiana University study, taking this supplement before exercising was found to significantly reduce muscle soreness and tenderness afterwards.

In the study, half of the 32 participants took a daily fish oil supplement (400 mg) for 26 days; the other half took a placebo. They were then put through a 20-minute downhill running workout on the treadmill, which has been shown to cause muscle damage (as anyone who's tried downhill running can tell you). Over the next 4 days, the participants kept taking the supplement (or the placebo) and were asked to rate muscle soreness in their legs on a scale from 0 to 10, or "no soreness" to "unbearably painful." They also had their blood tested for markers of inflammation.

Compared to the placebo group, the fish oil group reported significantly less soreness in their legs and had lower levels of inflammation in their blood. "The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have anti-inflammatory properties," says sports doctor Jordan Metzl, who was not involved in the study. "Just as those properties keep your heart healthy, they can keep your muscles in good shape, too." If you'd rather not take a fish oil supplement, you can always add more fish to your diet, says Metzl. Or try one of these other science-backed solutions for muscle soreness:

Plus, the same drink's also been shown to help you get more sleep. Talk about a win-win.

Caffeine
Loading up on caffeine before a workout isn't everyone's cup of tea (or coffee), but research at the University of Georgia found that it can reduce muscle soreness by up to 48%. It works by blocking adenosine, a pain-stimulating chemical that's in your muscles.
