Introduction: An imbalance between free radical production and antioxidant defense system components can lead to oxidative stress. Antioxidants can reduce inflammation. C-reactive protein (CRP) is an inflammatory factor, and the question is whether the Resvin, as an antioxidant, can reduce the level C-reactive protein in elite women volleyball players.

Materials & methods: In this semi-experimental study, with pre-test and post-test design, 20 elite female athletes were randomly assigned to two equal groups of supplement and control. Subjects in the intervention group received 400 mg of Resvin supplements daily for 14 days. Blood samples were taken for determination of CRP level, before and after the intervention. Resvin supplementation is carried out at the special practice stage. CRP was measured using a LATEX kit.

Findings: The results show that Resvin supplementation leads to significant reduction in inflammatory factor of C - reactive protein in elite women volleyball players (p<0/05). The variation of CRP (mg/l) shows 0/37 mg/l decrease and 0/09 increase in supplemented and placebo groups, respectively.

Discussion & Conclusions: Based on the current finding, it can be suggested that Resvin consumption might be reduced the production of CRP inflammatory factor after high intensity exercise and may help improve recovery.
