I know there was a study in IJSN, back before 2000, suggsting no ergogenic effects after a week or two.
On top of this, and however anecdotal this may sound, I can tell you that during the height of inosine marketing (the first time around, several years ago), there were many people I spoke to who were unimpressed.
If there’s new data floating around or a new use for inosine other than “energy and performnace”, I’d like to hear about it, though. Got anything good? [/quote]
No, nothing good to report. The only thing that looked promising was preliminary reports that inosine can “suppress proinflammatory cytokine production and mortality in a mouse endotoxemic model”. Now, I don’t know what that means, but it looked promising.
I just moved house and found an old bottle at the back of the cupboard. I remembered taking it regularly with no effect, but if I took it in a once off fashion (like once a week before rugby games), it seemed like I had limitless energy. I thought I would see if there was anything to back my experience up.
