Impact Of Time Restricted Feeding On Markers Of Cardiometabolic Health, Liliana I. Renteria, Elias Villalobos, Hunter S. Waldman, Matthew J. Mcallister Feb 2019

Impact Of Time Restricted Feeding On Markers Of Cardiometabolic Health, Liliana I. Renteria, Elias Villalobos, Hunter S. Waldman, Matthew J. Mcallister

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Time restricted feeding (TRF) is a form of intermittent fasting in which all calories are consumed within a certain amount of time (i.e. 6-8 hrs) only water is ingested for the remainder of the day. Previous research shows improvements in body composition and some markers of cardiometabolic health, but it is not clear if these results were due to the decreased eating window, or due to a decrease in caloric intake that typically occurs with fasting protocols. PURPOSE: to assess whether a caloric deficit is necessary to achieve improvements in cardiometabolic health as well as evaluate the impact TRF ...


Curcumin And Boswellia Serrata Supplementation Result In Reduced Inflammation Following Eccentric Leg Press Exercise, Asheal A. Davis, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Melody A. Gary, Brian K. Mcfarlin Feb 2019

Curcumin And Boswellia Serrata Supplementation Result In Reduced Inflammation Following Eccentric Leg Press Exercise, Asheal A. Davis, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Melody A. Gary, Brian K. Mcfarlin

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Repetitive exercise on consecutive days is a key component of many long-term training plans. This type of exercise results in muscle inflammation and soreness that limits the capacity to sustain exercise at a high effort. Several dietary polyphenols have the capacity to manage inflammation and thus supplementation may be an effective component of a long-term training plan. PURPOSE:The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of combined oral supplementation with curcumin and boswellia serrata prior to and following three consecutive days of intense interval exercise. METHODS:All protocols were approved by the University IRB committee and participants ...


Inflammation-Associated Rna Signaling Is Reduced Following A Half-Marathon Race When Supplemented With Curcumin And A Pomegranate Extract, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Melody A. Gary, Asheal A. Davis, Brian K. Mcfarlin Feb 2019

Inflammation-Associated Rna Signaling Is Reduced Following A Half-Marathon Race When Supplemented With Curcumin And A Pomegranate Extract, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Melody A. Gary, Asheal A. Davis, Brian K. Mcfarlin

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Prolonged endurance exercise performances provide a unique model for investigating the combined effects of oxidative stress and eccentric muscle contraction on differential gene expression with nutritional interventions known to blunt inflammation. Dietary polyphenols (i.e. curcumin, pomegranate, etc.) have been shown to reduce exercise-induced inflammation associated mRNA and protein expression with fewer side effects than NSAIDs. PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of combined curcumin (500-1000 mg/d; Longvida®) and pomegranate extract (500-1000 mg/d; Pomella®) supplement for 30-days on mRNA expression following a half marathon race. METHODS: All protocols were approved by the University IRB committee and participants gave written ...


Using Dietary Polyphenols To Manage Post Exercise Inflammation, Melody A. Gary, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Brian K. Mcfarlin, Asheal A. Davis Feb 2019

Using Dietary Polyphenols To Manage Post Exercise Inflammation, Melody A. Gary, Elizabeth A. Tanner, Brian K. Mcfarlin, Asheal A. Davis

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Individuals participating in prolonged exercise sessions and associated training experience regular inflammation and muscle soreness. Natural products with known anti-inflammatory and/or oxidative stress blocking effects represent attractive options to traditional NSAID treatments. PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of combined curcumin (500-1000 mg/d; Longvida®), pomegranate extract (500-1000 mg/d; Pomella®), and Methylsulfonylmethane (500-1000 mg/d; OptiMSM®) supplement for 30-days on protein inflammatory biomarkers, inflammation-associated RNA, and oxidative. METHODS: All protocols were approved by the University IRB committee and participants gave written informed consent. Subjects were supplemented for 30-d prior to the half marathon race. Venous blood samples were collected ...


Circulating Inflammatory And Oxidative Stress Responses To Steady-State Moderate-Intensity And High-Intensity Interval Exercise In Mid-Spectrum Chronic Kidney Disease, Matthew Peterson, Jeffrey S. Forsse, James K. Taylor, Zach Papadakis, Nick Schwedock, Burritt Hess, Jackson O. Griggs Md, Crawford Allison, Ron Wilson Md, Kathleen Adair, Mitch Cholewinski, Peter Grandjean Feb 2019

Circulating Inflammatory And Oxidative Stress Responses To Steady-State Moderate-Intensity And High-Intensity Interval Exercise In Mid-Spectrum Chronic Kidney Disease, Matthew Peterson, Jeffrey S. Forsse, James K. Taylor, Zach Papadakis, Nick Schwedock, Burritt Hess, Jackson O. Griggs Md, Crawford Allison, Ron Wilson Md, Kathleen Adair, Mitch Cholewinski, Peter Grandjean

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Inflammation and oxidative stress can be potent modulators of vascular function. These factors may transiently respond to moderate-intensity steady state exercise (SSE) in a manner that improves post-exercise vascular function in healthy adults. Whether exercise imparts similar effects in adults with Stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) remains understudied. Moreover, a comparison of SSE and high-intensity interval exercise (HIIE) may add to clinically-relevant findings for improving vascular function in mid-spectrum CKD. PURPOSE: To determine the influence of SSE and a comparable amount of HIIE on post-exercise inflammation and oxidative stress in patients diagnosed with secondary Stage 3 or ...


Acute Exercise-Induced Response Of Platelet-Monocyte Complexes In Obese, Postmenopausal Women, Michael M. Levitt, Maria A. Cardenas, Bryan Richie, Carmen A. Cook, Shaohan Lu, Kara L. Steck, Jay Haynes, Andreas Kreutzer, Joel B. Mitchell, Melody D. Phillips Feb 2018

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Inactivity-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD) are linked to chronic low-grade, systemic inflammation. Platelet-monocyte complexes (PMCs) are markers of in vivo platelet activation and atherosclerosis, and may be early indicators of subclinical inflammation. PURPOSE: To examine the effects of an exercise bout on PMCs in those at risk for CVD. METHODS: Twenty-five overweight-obese (BMI 32.7 ± 5.2 kg×m-2, 55-75 yr) women were randomly assigned to either the exercise (EX, n=13) or non-exercise control (CON, n=12) group. EX performed 2 sets of 8 resistance exercises and a 25-min treadmill walk at 70-80% HRR. Blood was ...
