Effects of arachidonic acid supplementation on training adaptations in resistance-trained males.
The purpose of this study was to determine if 50 days of resistance training and arachidonic acid (AA) supplementation elicited changes in body composition, performance variables, hormonal/cytokine levels (i.e. prostaglandins, ...
Effects of prophylactic supplementation of N-acetyl-cysteine and epigallocatechin gallate on markers of oxidative stress, inflammation and apoptosis after eccentric contraction-induced injury in untrained males.
The purpose of this study was the examine the effects of 14 days of prophylactic supplementation of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) on changes in peak torque production, muscle soreness, muscle ...
The effects of a creatine supplement formulation containing cinnamon extract on creatine uptake, creatine transporter expression, insulin signaling, and muscle performance in males.
Creatine monohydrate has become one of the most popular ingested nutritional supplements used for its potential to enhance athletic performance. Numerous creatine formulations have been developed to maximize creatine ...
The effects of heavy resistance exercise in combination with orally administered branched-chain amino acids or leucine on insulin signaling and Akt/mTOR pathway activity in active males.
Purpose: To determine if activity of the insulin signaling pathway is increased during lower body resistance exercise due to supplemental BCAA or leucine ingestion. Methods: 30 recreationally trained males (22.5yrs; ...
The effects of branched-chain amino acid and leucine ingestion on the ERK1/2 MAP kinase signal transduction pathway in conjunction with an acute bout of heavy resistance exercise.
Purpose: To determine if leucine or BCAA ingestion increases the activation of the ERK1/2 MAPK pathway greater than that which resistance exercise (RE) elicits alone; to determine a possible mechanism for a BCAA or leucine ...
Effects of glucosamine and chondroitan supplementation in women with knee osteoarthritis participating in the Curves fitness and weight loss program: a randomized, placebo controlled, double blind clinical trial.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether participation in the Curves fitness and weight loss program and/or ingesting a commercially available glucosamine and chondroitan joint support dietary supplement improved ...
