Free Radicals
Knowing that intense exercise releases a large volume of free radicals, many athletes take anti-oxidents like vitamins C and E. To test whether anti-oxidents improve either performance or recovery and subsequent performance, racing greyhounds were given vitamin C. Geyhounds are exceptionally consistent in their performances, so they make a good test group. To the researchers’ surprise, anti-oxidents resulted in consistent small decreases in performance. No-one has any idea why. (7/30)
