Post Workout Antioxidant Studies

These studies are showing more and more that an increased intake of antioxidants (typically A, E, C- but includes others) may reduce post workout soreness, recovery time and boost your immune system.

here are some of the articles. (first one is a long read. second one is very short)

HYPERplasia The Magazine

Nutrition Strategies For Speeding Recovery Post-Workout - Triathlon Training Log


Also, here are some remedies for post workout soreness ( i thought the caffeine one was very interesting):

Don't Be Sore! - MSN Health & Fitness - Diet & Fitness


it has also been reported that many Brazilian fighters eat acai berries as an integral part of their diet to help minimize down time and speed recovery.


overall, i think it's a nice little tweak to the workout diet. my antioxidants come largely from fruits but many supplements are now including green tea complexes as a source of caffeine and antioxidants for just this purpose.

Takuan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Totally man, I'm loving glutamine supplements as well.

I found this article about over supplementation of antioxidants, long story short: don't get too much antioxidants or you'll be tired alot. (always have to know the too little vs. too much when it comes to supplements! ^^)

I mean I have taken nox-cg3 with has the aboves stated in it, and I do not get AS sore. I wouldnt say that it takes away the sore etc feelings from a good workout away though. Also after a good week of training/lifting/swimming/etc I like to be sore just for the fact that I know I did something right

yeah, you still get the "good workout" soreness but im refering to the bad aching and stuff if you do too much too fast etc.

and yes... there are side effects to getting too much of anything in your diet.
most vitamins will pass in your urine if you get too much, and this diuretic effect can be bad for you. you can become dehydrated and you tend to lose electrolytes this way.
too many metals in your diet can have bad effects as well, such as iron, copper, magnesium, to name a few.

glutamine is indeed a great supplement for soreness prevention. i like to take mine with leucine as well as the two together helps the muscle recover on a cellular level more rapidly than it would without.
