Multi-nutrient supplement shows anti-inflammatory.
Researchers found that a multi-nutrient supplement offered benefits to recovery, anti-inflammation and physical performance in middle aged men and women. In a study comprised of 31 active men and women with an average age of 54, volunteers were randomized to take either the multi-nutrient supplement or a placebo for a 28 day cycle, followed by 1 week of no intervention, and then another cycle of 28 days on the other regime. The supplement contained vitamin B5 (20mg), B6 (6mg), folic acid (.4mg), B12 (.25mg), taurine (500mg), 1-leucine (2,000mg), isoleucine (500mg), valine (500mg), Cat's Claw (uncaria tomentosa, 100mg), quercetin (100mg), green tea (50mg), and Biovin full spectrum whole grape extract (25mg). The researchers found improved inflammatory status, and increased energy levels in both men and women. Benefits to joint pain, strength, and power were had by men but not women (on average), while women, but not men, experienced improvements in both anxiety levels a nd balance. This study suggests that a multi-nutrient supplement may help middle-aged individuals maintain physical health and an active lifestyle.
