Antioxidants prevent health-promoting effects of physical exercise in humans

I’m becoming more aware of the anti-aging “movement” out there that subscribes to various biohacks to promote brain health and overall longevity. One such hack which I always dismiss out of hand is the taking of Metformin. My general philosophy is to try to achieve things naturally since pills invariably have unintended consequences. Vitamins also, I’ve been a bit wary of, and in this article from a decade ago indicates that Vitamin C and Vitamin E can counteract the benefits of exercising. I don’t happen to take either, but fascinating still. I’ll talk about Metformin next.
