Fatigue Resistance

Fatigue Resistance tends to refer to the resiliance of the body towards developing fatigue (a sort of preeminative anti-fatigue effect), and supplements that enhance fatigue resistance are thought to be anti-stress and adaptogenic.

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect fatigue resistance
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The more evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-b Creatine Minor Moderate See all 8 studies
Small degree of fatigue reduction during exercise, but appears unreliable.
grade-c Eleutherococcus senticosus Minor Very High See 2 studies
May increase physical performance, but is unreliable in doing so
grade-c Astaxanthin - - See study

All comparative evidence is now gathered in our ​A-to-Z Supplement Reference.
