Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intense exercise induces increased levels of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a special cake (consisting of carbohydrate to whey protein 3.5:1) vs an isocaloric carbohydrate cake on inflammatory markers after exhaustive cycling in humans. Nine subjects received either the experimental or placebo cake in a counterbalanced fashion using a crossover, double-blind, repeated-measures design. They performed one trial involving a 2-hour exercise on a cycle ergometer at 60-65% VO(2)max followed by a 4-hour recovery and then a second trial involving an 1-hour exercise at 60-65% VO(2)max which was increased at 95% VO(2)max. Blood samples were collected pre exercise, 30 min and 4 h post-exercise, post time Trial and 48 h post time Trial. Cakes were consumed immediately post exercise and every 1 h for the next 3 hours. The results showed that consumption of the experimental cake reduced significantly (p<0.05), 4 hours post exercise, the pro-inflammatory protein levels IL-6 and CRP compared to the control group by 50% and 46% respectively. Moreover, in the experimental cake group, the level of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 was higher by 118%, 4 hours post-exercise, compared to the control group but not statistically significant.
