Clinical Study Title:
Vitamin E supplementation attenuates leakage of enzymes following 6 successive days of running training.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the use of a vitamin E supplement to aid in detecting muscle damage after a distance increase at a running training camp. A total of 14 males who were attending the running training were given either a placebo or a vitamin E supplement. There was an increase in some of the serum enzyme levels after the vitamin E supplements. There also was an increase in those participants who were taking the vitamin E in the protection from muscle damage. This suggests that vitamin E supplements can help to protect against muscle damage after changes in an exercise program, and should be used by all athletes.|
