To study the effects of antioxidant diet supplementation with an almond-based beverage on neutrophil antioxidants, nitrite and protein oxidative alterations after exercise. Fourteen male-trained amateur runners were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to receive antioxidant supplementation (152 mg vitamin C/day and 50 mg vitamin E/day) or placebo using an almond-based beverage for 1 month, and participated in a half-marathon race. Blood samples were taken before and after the half-marathon and after 3 h recovery. Supplementation significantly increased basal neutrophil vitamin C when compared to placebo group (p
