Arachidonic acid supplementation transiently augments the acute inflammatory response to resistance exercise in trained men.


Strenuous exercise can result in skeletal muscle damage, leading to the systemic mobilization, activation and intramuscular accumulation of blood leukocytes. Eicosanoid metabolites of arachidonic acid (ARA) are potent inflammatory mediators, but whether changes in dietary ARA intake influence exercise-induced inflammation is not known. This study… (More)
