The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of antioxidant supplementation (vitamin C plus vitamin E) on inflammatory values after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery. Men undergoing ACL surgery were given either vitamin C plus vitamin E or a placebo. The researchers concluded that antioxidant supplementation attenuated the increase in inflammatory values post-ACL surgery. Further details can be found in the study.
