Session Detail

Session Number and Title: 075.Measuring the effects of nutraceuticals on physiological and cognitive performance.
Session Type: SYMPOSIUM
Session Time: Sunday, Jun 12, 2011, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Primary Track: Food, Health & Nutrition
Session Room: Room 293
Session Description: The session highlights methods for evaluating the effects of food constituents that reportedly benefit physical and cognitive performance. Four speakers discuss experimental methodology for quantifying exercise performance/muscle recovery and cognitive performance/vigilance under simulated adverse situations. Also, the speakers describe food components of interest for supplementation. The discussion will also include assessing the efficacy of nutraceuticals for improving soldier performance, understanding nutraceutical effects on exercise-induced muscle damage, assessing effects of nutrients on cognitive performance and stress response, and measuring benefits of nutraceuticals on exercise physiology.
