Antioxidant Supplementation, Muscle Damage, Oxidative Stress, and Leukocyte Apoptosis
Faculty, Kinesiology Department, CSU, Chico
Dr. Feng He is working toward a better understanding of exercise-induced muscle damage and DOS (delayed onset of muscle soreness). The focus of this presentation is the muscle soreness that begins approximately two days after exercise, especially after a person suddenly engages in more strenuous exercise than he or she is used to doing. Dr. He discusses the roles of oxidants and antioxidants in exercise and of apoptosis (the death of cells that occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism’s growth or development). She also shares her conclusions and suggests possible areas for future research.
