Studies related to Fat Oxidation and Resveratrol

Resveratrol Supplementation Does Not Augment Performance Adaptations Or Fibre-type-specific Responses To High-intensity Interval Training In Humans

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 2-4 Weeks
Number of Subjects 16
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 150mg resveratrol 15 minutes after the workout (three times weekly HIIT training) over four weeks in lightly trained men appeared to interfere with improvements in VO~2~ max and genetic adaptations to exercise (assessed by impairments in the exercise-induced increase in PGC-1a, SIRT1, and SOD2) when assessed via a Wingate test.

Fat oxidation rates and substrate utilization unaffected, and when measuring type I and type II muscle fiber there was no influence of treatment on their composition of substrate composition (glycogen v. intramuscular triglycerides).
