Abstract

We evaluated whether twice-daily consumption of a multi-ingredient nutritional supplement (SUPP) would reduce systemic inflammatory markers following 6 weeks of supplementation alone (phase 1), and the subsequent addition of 12 weeks of exercise training (phase 2) in healthy older men, in comparison with a carbohydrate-based control (CON). Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) concentrations were progressively reduced (P-time <0.05) in the SUPP group. No change in TNF-alpha or IL-6 concentrations was observed in the CON group.
