Alpha-Tocopherol Supplementation In Racing Cyclists During Extreme Endurance Training

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 30
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
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.
