Hesperidin Found To Improve Anaerobic Performance


Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid, a type of plant pigment with
antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties found primarily in unripe citrus
fruit. A new study has found that hesperidin may help improve anaerobic
performance during exercise.





The researchers recruited 15 amateur cyclists with at least one
year of training for the study. The participants took 500 mg of hesperidin or a
placebo five hours before completing 2 exercise sessions. The exercise sessions
consisted of sprint tests followed by a 20-minute high intensity bike ride.
Researchers collected blood and urine samples before and after the exercise
sessions. The participants switched interventions after a washout period.





The researchers found that participants had significant
improvements in average power, maximum speed, and total energy after hesperidin
supplementation, compared to placebo. Hesperidin supplementation also resulted
in improved antioxidant status and reductions in oxidative stress.





The study was conducted by researchers from Catholic University
of Murcia. It was published on August 14, 2019 in the journal Nutrients.
