Table 6 Differences (post- vs. pre-training) on oxidative stress markers and strength

From: Effects of creatine supplementation on oxidative stress profile of athletes

Group Uric Acid (mg/dl) TBARS (ng/dl) TAS (mmol/l) Strength (kg)
GC 2.77 ± 1.70a 55 ± 98 −0.51 ± 0.36b,c 8.30 ± 2,26d,e
GP 2.26 ± 2.38 40 ± 118 −0.11 ± 0.37 5.29 ± 3.77
COT 1.00 ± 1.03 48 ± 130 −0.02 ± 0.50 5.29 ± 2.36
  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SD; GC= creatine supplemented athletes; GP= placebo (malthodextrin) supplemented athletes; COT= non-supplemented control athletes; TBARS= Thiobarbituric Acid Reactive Substances; TAS= Total Antioxidant Status; aP value = 0.0276 vs. COT; bP value = 0.0268 vs. COT; cP value = 0.0253 vs. GP; dP value = 0.0209 vs. COT; eP value = 0.0283 vs. GP.
