Abstract

This study is concerned with investigating the efficacy of polyphenolic antioxidant supplementation on indices of recovery after prolonged intermittent shuttle running. The purpose of this study is to clarify previous conflicting reports of polyphenolic antioxidant supplementation on indices of muscle recovery. Elderberry extract has been shown to have large oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) compared to numerous antioxidant rich foods; nevertheless, there is a lack of scientific research on its efficacy on muscle recovery. This study will add to currently lacking knowledge of elderberry supplementation as an ergogenic aid. From this evidence, can polyphenolic antioxidant supplementation significantly reduce muscle damage and its associated responses in trained male games athletes after prolonged intermittent shuttle running?
