Darn. Catchy! Much to my embarrassment, the incessant humming progressed, and, as if my iPhone had been briefly operated by someone else’s hands, “We Can’t Stop” somehow ended up on my running playlist. During my third morning run to this newly-improved (questionable) playlist, I came to the realization that as much as I was trying not to love this song, it was resonating with me — and not for a bad reason: I’m drawn to empowering and motivating lyrics when I run , and when I’m running, I actually can’t and won’t stop. That Miley, she was onto something! I dug around the rest of my music library and realized this “can’t stop, won’t stop” mentality is actually pretty regular for me.

The volunteers in the third group were offered a control drink that contained absolutely no L-citrulline. About an hour after they had enjoyed their beverages, the volunteers were made to exercise. Later on, the researchers evaluated how much muscle soreness each of them was experiencing. It was discovered that the people belonging to the first two groups all felt less discomfort than the volunteers who had consumed the control drink. The watermelon juice enriched with L-citrulline reportedly proved more effective than the natural one in terms of relieving muscle soreness. However, the volunteers’ bodies responded better to the natural juice, meaning that they processed it significantly easier. The researchers theorize that L-citrulline helps cut an athlete’s recovery time by speeding up the process of lactic acid removal.
