Exercise and the antioxidative status of human skin

April 1, 2012

The influence of endurance exercise on the antioxidative status of human skin was studied by Vierck et al, (European journal of applied physiology, Feb 14, 2012).

Sport in general has predominantly positive effects on the health of humans especially with regards to cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

However, the results of this work suggest that above a certain threshold, physical exercise leads to oxidative stress in the skin associated with the decrease in antioxidant concentration.

This gives rise to the impairment of the first defence line of the skin and means an increase in the risk of sun exposure-induced damage.  

And there’s help! According to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, sunburn protection can be added to the list  of Green Tea‘s Health Benefits.

Conclusions:

1. Cover up the skin to protect from sun when exercising.
2. Take an antioxidant rich drink like UP&GO before exercising to help with those antioxidant levels. UP&GO will also aid with maintaining energy levels.
