Studies have suggested that antioxidants may reduce muscle soreness and help with recovery short term, but high doses have also been linked to reduced training benefits long term. (High doses of antioxidants may interfere with the signalling that is needed to stimulate training adaptation.)
Similarly, reducing inflammation with non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen may help in short term recovery and might help with reducing soreness. However, it may also impair long term adaptation.
The same has been said for ice baths. These may help at least perception of recovery short term, but may reduce training adaptation long term.
