Brief Summary:
Investigation of the acute and chronic effects of Supradyn® Energy 3RDA on subjective ratings of 'fatigue/stress', substrate metabolism and blood biomarkers of recovery, as a consequence of exercise and metabolically demanding cognitive tasks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Dietary Supplement: Supradyn® Energy 3RDA Dietary Supplement: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Supplementation with vitamins and minerals has been shown to enhance energy production, metabolism, and mood state. It is thought that they may also aid recovery from challenging physical and psychological tasks following both acute and chronic supplementation. The present study will investigate the effects of a multivitamin/mineral supplement (Supradyn® Energy 3RDA) following a single intake and following daily intake for 4-weeks on subjective ratings of 'fatigue/stress', metabolism and blood biomarkers of cell damage following both exercise and demanding cognitive tasks, in healthy young male and female volunteers.

    Subjective ratings of arousal (concentration, mental stamina/physical stamina) stress and fatigue (mentally tired/physically tired) visual analogue scales (scored along 100mm line)

  7. Chronic (28 days) treatment effects on subjective arousal/stress/fatigue ratings as assessed by visual analogue scales, during physical stress [ Time Frame: Following 28 days' treatment, measures taken before, after and every 10 minutes during 30 minute exercise period ]
    Subjective ratings of arousal (concentration, mental stamina/physical stamina) stress and fatigue (mentally tired/physically tired) visual analogue scales (scored along 100mm line)

  8. Chronic (28 days) treatment effects on subjective arousal/stress/fatigue ratings as assessed by visual analogue scales, during mental stress [ Time Frame: Following 28 days treatment, measures taken before, after and every 10 minutes during 30 minute cognitive task period ]
    Subjective ratings of arousal (concentration, mental stamina/physical stamina) stress and fatigue (mentally tired/physically tired) visual analogue scales (scored along 100mm line)

  9. Acute treatment effects on recovery biomarkers [ Time Frame: Following acute treatment, taken at baseline and following exercise (75 minutes post-dose) and cognitive task performance (165 minutes post-dose). Then at 24h and 48hours post-exercise. ]
    Measuring levels of Interleukin-6, F2 isoprostanes, protein carbonyls, C-reactive protein, glutathione peroxidase, taken to assess recovery from exercise

  10. Chronic (28 days) treatment effects on recovery biomarkers [ Time Frame: Following 28 days treatment, taken at baseline, following exercise and cognitive task performance. Then at 24h and 48hours post-exercise. ]
    Measuring levels of Interleukin-6, F2 isoprostanes, protein carbonyls, C-reactive protein, glutathione peroxidase, taken to assess recovery from exercise


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acute treatment effects on vitamin/mineral/homocysteine levels [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline, then following acute treatment, after exercise (75 minutes post-dose) ]
    Measuring levels of Ferritin, vitamin B12, homocysteine, creatinine

  2. Chronic (28 days) treatment effects on vitamin/mineral/homocysteine levels [ Time Frame: Following chronic (28 days) treatment, measured after exercise ]
    Measuring levels of Ferritin, vitamin B12, homocysteine, creatinine

  3. Acute treatment effects on cognitive performance [ Time Frame: Following acute treatment, measured 135 minutes post dose ]
