NASA Research Announcement
  1. Exercise countermeasures are currently only partially protective. Nutritional supplements may improve exercise countermeasures effectiveness. Studies will be solicited to test novel nutritional supplements to improve exercise effectiveness in a bed rest flight analog. This will directly address the gaps to minimize exercise time and hardware that is required.
Integration/Unique Aspects:
This study is one of several potential pharmaceutical or nutritional countermeasures that if promising could be selected for flight validation (see Flight Validation Studies of Exercise, Pharmaceutical or Nutritional Supplements).
