ABSTRACT
The article discusses the health benefits and market of compression socks and tights for athletes. It states that these garments enhance blood circulation, stabilize the muscles, and minimize the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness. A study has found that wearing these garments may alter the inflammatory response to damage and accelerate repair processes inside of the muscle. Several new compression socks and tights that were introduced by various companies are also mentioned.

    Creatine (Cr) supplementation increases muscle mass, strength, and power. Arginine α-ketoglutarate (A-AKG) is a precursor for nitric oxide production and has the potential to improve blood flow and nutrient delivery (i.e., Cr) to muscles. This study compared a commercial dietary supplement of...
