Australian and international athletes push their bodies to the limits in pursuit of their desired goals in their chosen sport. Athletes recognise and understand the many health benefits of regular exercise including increased lean muscle mass, improved bone density, better flexibility and better aerobic and anaerobic capacity. However there is one major adverse effect that effects everyone who exercises to any degree - oxidative stress. This is of particular concern to athletes who put their bodies under extreme oxidative stress with day to day training and those high performance events as it increases as exercise becomes more rigorous.
Oxidative stress can significantly impact body repair and recovery post-exercise and as a result, hinder optimum performance. It can also lead to injuries, sickness and premature breakdown of the body over time, often manifesting as chronic diseases. However, individuals can markedly reduce their oxidative stress, the impact it has on the body and ensure the maximum health benefits from their exercise regime through proper nutrition.
