Objective:The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of ingestion of omega-3 on perceived pain and external symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness after eccentric exercise in knee extensors. Design:A randomized, double-blinded, repeated measures design was used for this study. Setting:The study was performed in the Exercise Physiology Laboratory at the Faculty of Humanities of Urmia University. Participants:Twenty-seven men, who had not participated in any training program 60 days… 

The Effects of Acute Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation on Delayed-onset Muscle Soreness and Recovery

The results suggest that acute O3FA supplementation does not attenuate perceived muscle soreness or improve rating of exertion or recovery 24 hours following induction of DOMS.

Effect of L-Glutamine Supplementation on Electromyographic Activity of the Quadriceps Muscle Injured By Eccentric Exercise

The results indicate that L-glutamine supplementation has no significant effect on muscle injury markers in between groups, although glutamine supplementation attenuated delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) effects in sup group.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Supplementation Attenuates Inflammatory Markers After Eccentric Exercise in Untrained Men

Ingestion of N-3 can be effective in ameliorating, eccentric exercise–induced, inflammatory markers.

Effect of DHA supplementation on muscle damage and inflammation during the first two weeks of a novice resistance training program

This study does not demonstrate convincing benefits of DHA ingestion to recovery from a new resistance exercise program but does suggest a need for further investigation.

Pilot study on the effect of grounding on delayed-onset muscle soreness.

In a pilot study, grounding the body to the earth alters measures of immune system activity and pain and provides a basis for a larger study.

The Relationship between Omega-3 Fatty Acid Intake and Muscle Soreness in Collegiate Rowers

The findings suggest that high intakes of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, regardless of liquid or capsule form, may be contraindicated for collegiate rowers wishing to reduce muscle soreness.

Influence of omega-3 (n3) index on performance and wellbeing in young adults after heavy eccentric exercise.

Omega-3 index (N3) is elevated after supplementation versus placebo in healthy young adults, andSubjects with higher N3 index demonstrated reduced DOMS after heavy exercise and better quality of life, and POMS scores were improved in high N3 Index subjects demonstrating better QOL.

Impact of Varying Dosages of Fish Oil on Recovery and Soreness Following Eccentric Exercise

Fish oils (FOs) are rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have been purported to enhance recovery of muscular performance and reduce soreness post-exercise. However, the most

21 days of mammalian omega-3 fatty acid supplementation improves aspects of neuromuscular function and performance in male athletes compared to olive oil placebo

The data indicates N-3 PUFA supplementation improved peripheral neuromuscular function and aspects of fatigue with an unclear effect on central neuromUScular function.

Effects of simultaneous intake of chamomile and ibuprofen on delayed-onset muscle soreness markers and some liver enzymes following eccentric exercise

Investigation of the effects of simultaneous intake of chamomile and ibuprofen on markers of muscle damage, pain, and inflammation after exhaustive eccentric exercise in young men found chammile supplementation significantly improved MS, SJ, AST, and ALT more than ib uprofen, and chamamile + ibuproen compared to the placebo group.

Findings provided initial evidence that the protease supplement may be useful for reducing strength loss immediately after eccentric exercise and for aiding in short-term strength recovery.

Efficacy of Naproxen Sodium for Exercise‐Induced Dysfunction Muscle Injury and Soreness

The results suggest that naproxen sodium improved recovery after eccentrically biased exercise, probably by attenuating expression of the inflammatory response to muscle injury.

Influence of a prostaglandin-inhibiting drug on muscle soreness after eccentric work.

It is suggested that eccentric exercise interferes with glycogen synthesis and that prostaglandins do not play a major role in exercise-induced muscle soreness.

Effects of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug on delayed onset muscle soreness and indices of damage.

It is suggested that diclofenac does not influence muscle damage, but may slightly reduce the associated soreness, and serum enzyme response to the second run was reduced.

Effect of ibuprofen use on muscle soreness, damage, and performance: a preliminary investigation.

The data indicate that a prophylactic dosage of ibuprofen does not prevent CK release from muscle, but does decrease muscle soreness perception and may assist in restoring muscle function.

Naproxen does not alter indices of muscle damage in resistance-exercise trained men.

NSAID administration did not alter CK rise, muscle force deficit at 24 h postexercise, nor perceived muscle pain, and was not associated with an acute myofibrillar inflammatory cell infiltrate in moderately trained men after resistance exercise.

Effect of indomethacin on the development of eccentric exercise-induced localized sensitive region in the fascia of the rabbit.

It is suggested that a sensitization of polymodal-type nociceptors in the fascia mediated by prostaglandins is a possible mechanism for the development of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and the localized sensitive region produced by eccentric exercise.
