As part of the School of Science and Technology SHAPE Research Centre Seminar Series, Dr Martin Barwood, Leeds Trinity University presents: Fresh for success: Menthol as an ergogenic aid to enhance sports performance.

Abstract

Menthol, a constituent of spearmint and peppermint plants, evokes a sensation of coolness and freshness when applied to the surface of the body or when ingested. In recent years exercise scientists have begun to explore the ergogenic potential of menthol particularly during activities that are limited by sensations of being hot and uncomfortable. Currently, a body of literature is emerging that supports the use of menthol application, mouth rinsing and ingestion as effective means of enhancing sports performance. In this talk, Dr Barwood will discuss the extant literature on menthol as an ergogenic aid drawing on his published works that have contributed to this vibrant research area over the last 10 years. New and exciting developments for the future will also be explored. All are welcome to join the discussion.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Caroline Sunderland
