Microcurrent is a non-invasive and safe electrotherapy applied through a series of sub-sensory electrical currents (less than 1 mA), which are of a similar magnitude to the currents generated endogenously by the human body. This review focuses on examining the physiological mechanisms mediating the effects of microcurrent when combined with differe...

Introduction Microcurrent has been used to promote tissue healing after injury or to hasten muscle remodeling post exercise post exercise. Purpose To compare the effects of resistance training in combination with either, microcurrent or sham treatment, on-body composition and muscular architecture. Additionally, changes in performance and perceive...

Whey is one of the high-quality sources of protein with a higher proportion of indispensable amino acids (IAA) compared to other sources. Its high leucine concentration makes whey an optimal protein source to maximize muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and to attenuate muscle protein breakdown at rest and following exercise. This review describes the m...

Combining Microcurrent with regular exercise configures an attractive strategy to optimise training outcomes. The aim of the present investigation was to analyse the effects of regularly wearing a new commercially available microcurrent device (Arc4health, UK) in well-trained endurance athletes. Measured variables were changes in body composition,...

Objective: This study examines the long-term effects of ingesting hydrolyzed beef protein versus carbohydrate on indirect markers of immunity during 10-week of endurance training in master-aged triathletes (n=16, age 35–60 years old). Methods: Participants were randomly assigned to either hydrolyzed beef protein (PRO, n=8) or non-protein isoenerge...

Appropriate nutritional supplementation is crucial for athletic performance, particularly for female endurance athletes as their numbers steadily increase. This report involves a set of six case studies examining the effects of ingesting a post-workout supplement containing beef, or whey or carbohydrate on iron status, blood indices, muscular thick...
Article
The present study compared the effects of two weekly-equalized volume and relative load interventions on body composition, strength and power. Based on individual baseline maximal strength values, eighteen recreationally trained men were pair-matched and consequently randomly assigned to one of the following experimental groups: a low volume per se...
Article
Objective: The present study compares the effect of ingesting hydrolyzed beef protein, whey protein, and carbohydrate on performance, body composition (via plethysmography), muscular thickness, and blood indices of health, including ferritin concentrations, following a 10-week intervention program. Methods: After being randomly assigned to one o...

Beef powder is a new high-quality protein source scarcely researched relative to exercise performance. The present study examined the impact of ingesting hydrolyzed beef protein, whey protein, and carbohydrate on strength performance (1RM), body composition (via plethysmography), limb circumferences and muscular thickness (via ultrasonography), fol...

Beef is anutrient-rich, high quality protein source containing all the essential amino acids in proportions similar to those found in human skeletal muscle. The current study examined the impact of ingesting hydrolysate beef protein, whey protein and carbohydrate on salivary alpha-defensins (HNP1) 3), body composition, jump performance and blood ma...

Beef is a nutrient-rich, high-quality protein containing all the essential amino acids in proportions similar to those found in human skeletal muscle. Only a few studies so far have analysed the effect of combining beef protein supplementation on resistance exercise performance outcomes and none of them have used hydrolysed high quality powdered be...

Background: Achieving fat-loss outcomes by ingesting multi-ingredient mixtures may be further enhanced during exercise. This study tested the acute thermogenic effectiveness of a commercially available multi-ingredient product (Shred-Matrix®), containing Green Tea Extract, Yerba Maté, Guarana Seed Extract, Anhydrous caffeine, Saw palmetto, Fo-Ti,...

This study investigates the effects of physical stress (exercise) in mucosal secretion that contribute to innate immunity are virtually unexplored. This is the first study that has investigated the correlation between stress hormones (cortisol) and growth hormone (testosterone) against potential antimicrobial peptide (α- Defensins).

To date, no studies have systematically investigated the effect of acute (min to hours) and chronic (days to weeks) change in salivary αdefensins family before and after crossfit exercise by LC-ESI-MS. This work demonstrates that HNP 1-4 could be used as potential stress biomarkers and this assay is potentially more specific than ELISA assays, thus...

Antimicrobial peptides (α- Defensins) are commonly measured by ELISA, however, this technique does not discriminate between HNP1-3 due to their structural similarities (Figure-1). With advances in mass spectrometry techniques, Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry LC-ESIMS is often considered as a first choice for analysis of salivary peptides. T...

Aerobic exercise usually produces adaptations that are beneficial to health. However, illness, symptoms or signs and cardiovascular, pulmonary or metabolic risk factors, expose athletes to a level of cardiovascular risk (CVR). Our aim is to identify the CVR in Galician amateur distance runners and to find out if the exercise intensity in road races...

To analyse the effects related to performance (Upper-Body, Lower-Body and Whole-Body Power), body composition, Muscle Contractile Properties (Tensiomyography), fuel oxidation (fat and carbohydrates), general markers of health status (e.g., white blood cell profile) and well-being (energy level, feeling of alertness, fatigue level, perception of effort during and after workouts), of combining Pre-workout and Post-workout Supplements with exercise training in Middle-Aged and Older Adults (>45 years old).
Project
Microcurrent based treatments have been proposed more than 30 years ago. The technology requires the use of a microcurrent device, Arc4Sports (ARC Microtech Ltd, East Sussex, UK), that provides different frequencies. Some in vitro studies have revealed that the application of electric fields and currents similar to those generated within the body can substantially change the cell structure and the metabolic behaviour of cells. Even though the microcurrent has been empirically reported as a practical and effective method by clinicians, including athletic trainers for the USA National Football League (NFA), there is a paucity of formal research published which verifies the effects of microcurrent treatments to maximise exercise adaptations, performance outcomes and recovery process in athletes. Aims: To analyse the effects of wearing a new commercially available microcurrent device combined with different exercise training modalities on exercise outcomes, body composition, recovery including muscle damage, general markers of health and immune function in athletes and non-athletes individuals.
