The aim of this study was to investigate and examine the effects of Mitoceps Plus ingestion on selected physiological parameters among experienced endurance runners. A total of four experienced endurance runners age: 43.0 ± 7.7 years old; weight: 163.9 ± 13.59 kg; height: 163.9 ± 13.59 cm; average VO2max: 47.4 ± 5.76 ml.kg.min-1; BMI: 21.6 ± 2.52 kg.m2; average HRmax: 177 ± 8 bpm participated in this study. Participants underwent one preliminary trial and three experimental trials. Preliminary trial consisted of a vertical jump test, sub-maximal VO2max and a VO2max test while the experimental trials consisted of a vertical jump test, 45-minutes continuous run test, and a VO2max test intertwined with dehydration protocol, recovery period, and dietary intake control. There were at least seven days apart between each trials. Results indicated that the three experimental trials had no significant differences in terms of oxygen uptake, time to exhaustion, lower limb power output, body fat percentage, blood glucose, and blood lactate levels. Hence, it was concluded that the Mitoceps Plus had little to no effect towards the change of selected physiological parameters that are vital to endurance running performance.
