Whether vitamin C blocks aerobic exercise adaptions lacks consensus, perhaps because of approaches that only assess markers of mitochondrial biogenesis. By directly measuring mitochondrial biogenesis, we demonstrate that vitamin C blunts exercise-induced adaptations. Furthermore, we show that treatment with Protandim, a purported nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 activator that upregulates endogenous antioxidants, permits mitochondrial biogenesis. We confirm that vitamin C blunts aerobic exercise adaptions, whereas Protandim does not, suggesting targeting the endogenous antioxidant network facilitates adaptations to exercise.
