Deep Ocean Mineral Supplementation Associated With Increased Running Capacity


Deep ocean minerals are collected from the ocean at a depth of more than 2,000 feet. According to a recent study, supplementation with deep ocean minerals may help improve high-intensity running capacity by approximately 25%.





Participants in the study included 9 healthy, recreational male soccer players with an average age of 22. At the beginning of the study, the participants completed a graded incremental test to determine their peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak). They then completed two familiarization trials and two experimental trials. All the trials were separated by a seven-day washout period.





Following the familiarization trial, the participants took either a deep ocean mineral supplement or a placebo. After a 2-hour recovery period, they completed the experimental trial. The participants who took the deep ocean mineral supplement had a 25% increase in high-intensity running capacity compared to those who took the placebo.





The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Derby and the University of Taipei. It was published May 24, 2019 in the journalMarine Drugs
