Vitamin-exercise study questioned - 0 views

    Reports that vitamins C and E may blunt the positive effects of exercise are misleading, according to an antioxidant expert.
    German researchers have reported that antioxidant vitamins C and E may blunt the positive effects of exercise, with respect to insulin sensitivity. Findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Reacting to the study , Alexander Schauss, PhD, from AIBMR Life Sciences, a nutraceutical products consultancy, told that the title of the study (Antioxidants prevent health-promoting effects of physical exercise in humans) was misleading.

    "The primary objective of this study was to study the effect of a 4-week intensive 5-days a week exercise program on insulin sensitivity. Yet the title of the paper leads one to believe otherwise," he said.

    "This is a small gender-biased study of 40 male subjects, 25 to 35 years of age. When I read through the study for the first time I had to wonder how could the authors have come up with such a title for their paper?" he asked.
