Wild Blueberries, Fat Burning, Endurance, Lactate Episode 1128 MAR 2023
The current study demonstrated that a 14-day intake of 25 g of freeze-dried WBs, supplying 375 mg of anthocyanins and approximately 1 cup of fresh fruit equivalent, significantly increased FAT-ox rates, decreased CHO-ox rates, and led to lower blood lactate values without changes in glycerol and FA concentrations during 40 min of cycling at 65% of vo2peak in endurance-trained males. These findings may have potential effects on endurance exercise performance.
