Vitamin E May Help Muscle Recovery

Vitamin E May Help Muscle Recovery

WASHINGTON--Vitamin E may counteract oxidative damage incurred during exercise, according to a study reported in the Tufts University Health and Nutrition Letter. Jennifer Sacheck, Ph.D., an exercise physiologist at Tufts, studied groups of physically active men aged 66 to 78 and a group aged 23 to 35. Test subjects received vitamin E supplements daily or a placebo. Older subjects taking vitamin E experienced less inflammation while younger ones also had less soreness and muscle damage.
