Pistachios: performance reducing :(

Pistachios: performance reducing :(

Postby IanM » 25 Aug 2015 09:57

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25409020

RESULTS:
Performance time for the 75-km time trial was 4.8% slower under pistachio conditions

CONCLUSIONS:
In summary, 2-weeks pistachio nut ingestion was associated with reduced 75-km cycling time trial performance and increased post-exercise plasma levels of raffinose, sucrose, and metabolites related to leukotoxic effects and oxidative stress.


I like pistachios :(

Where they using a chocolate brownie as the carrier mechanism for ingesting the pistachios?

Either way, that sounds like a delicious experiment!

Boooo... I like them too.

Loving the notion of 'pistachio conditions'... I shall perhaps conduct some research under 'wine conditions' :lol:

P.S. do people actually really carry out studies like this?!
