Managing Post-Exercise Inflammation: From Ibuprofen to Cherries

Most people know NSAIDs, like aspirin, can help control inflammation in the body – but what if the same results could be achieved through nutrition? Sports dietitian, Roberta Anding, MS, RD/LD, CDE, CSSD, FAND, sheds some light on the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet to reduce the inflammation associated with exercise.

Course Objectives

  • Summarize the physiological difference between chronic and acute inflammation as it relates to exercise, and how anti-inflammatory compounds combat inflammation.
  • Translate data and evidence-based research into informed recommendations on how to incorporate anti-inflammatory nutrients into athletes’ diets.
  • List at least five dietary sources of anti-inflammatory foods and their bioactive compounds.

SSE #170: Branched-chain amino acid supplementation to support muscle anabolism following exercise

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are essential amino acids that play several important roles in muscle metabolism. The BCAAs are critical for stimulation of molecular signaling that leads to muscle protein synthesis and muscle protein breakdown. This sports science exchange will discuss the research associated with BCAAs, other nutritional sources, and their effects on muscle protein following exercise.

SSE #156: Dietary Nitric Oxide Precursors and Exercise Performance

Nitric Oxide (NO) is involved in several bodily processes, and exercise performance may be enhanced by augmenting NO production. NO can be synthesized by oxidation of the amino acid, L-arginine, or by reduction of nitrate to nitrite. Dietary supplements containing these NO precursors have been promoted as possible ergogenic aids. L-citrulline supplementation may enable a higher level of extracellular L-arginine and enhanced NO availability, but further studies are required to investigate its ergogenic potential. Dietary nitrate supplementation, typically via beetroot juice ingestion, has been shown to reduce oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise and to increase the time to exhaustion during high-intensity continuous and intermittent exercise. The efficacy of dietary supplementation with NO precursors is likely related to a range of factors.
