RDC Global is conducting a study to evaluate the effect of orally-dosed LipiSperse curcumin and/or palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) on exercise recovery in healthy males.
Curcumin is a compound within the spice turmeric, commonly used in Indian cooking. Curcumin is known for its anti-inflammatory actions in the body. Specifically, curcumin is believed to assist in overcoming delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). DOMS is pain and stiffness following unaccustomed exercise as a result of muscle damage.
Similarly, Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a type of fat, most commonly found in animals. PEA has previously been studied for its pain-relieving effects and may be of benefit in relieving the symptoms of DOMS.
