Antioxidant Status Of Pro Athletes
Redox status is the balance between oxidants and antioxidants in your system. Oxidative stress can be caused by intense training, so it’s reasonable to assume the redox status of professional athletes might be altered during the course of a competitive season.
A study published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine examines the impact on professional French league soccer players. Blood samples were taken at 5 time periods spread from pre-season training camp to championship playoffs. Redox status did change with accumulated training load.
