A Systems-based Investigation Into Vitamin D And Skeletal Muscle Repair, Regeneration, And Hypertrophy
Notes for this study:
||14% improvement in torque at 48 hours after exercise and 13.7% improvement at 7 days.
|Number of Subjects
20 healthy males who were supplemented with either 4000 IU vitamin D or placebo underwent muscle damage through eccentric quad exercises and torque generation post-damage was measured at two different speeds up to 7 days after the eccentric exercise. Torque was recovered more quickly sin the supplemented group at slower speeds, and trended toward significance at quicker speeds.
