Effect None

Age Range 18-29

Notes for this study:
1g of vitamin C before exercise (30 minutes aerobic exercise at 75% VO2 max) was able to reduce oxidation during exercise and markers of muscle damage.

There was an acute increase in immune cell count following exercise (thought to be due to less immunosuppression), which may have preceded less muscle damage (assessed by creatine kinase) 24 hours after exercise. The reduction in cortisol may have also played a role.
