Alpha-Tocopherol Supplementation In Racing Cyclists During Extreme Endurance Training
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Five months supplementation of alpha-tocopherol to elite cyclists has been noted to reduce lipid peroxidation in the blood as assessed by MDA concentrations, but despite this there was no influence on physical performance nor most biomarkers of muscular fatigue.
Creatine Kinase, indicative of muscle breakdown from exercise, was attenuated with supplementation relative to placebo.
