BACKGROUND We have previously reported the finding of an acute increment in the susceptibility of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidation and in the proportion of electronegative LDL [LDL(-)] after intense exercise. We have now studied the effect of oral supplementation with 1 g ascorbic acid, immediately before a 4-h athletic race, on the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation, the proportion of LDL(-), and the alpha-tocopherol and lipid peroxides content in LDL, in order to inhibit such… CONTINUE READING
