Abstract
To study the effects of astaxanthin supplementation on serum antioxidant capacity, blood lactic acid and blood uric acid metabolism of human body in the 1h recovery period after acute high-intensity exercise. Sixteen male students grade 2016 from Physical Education Institution (age: 19.13±2.52, height: 179±4.21cm and weight 68.23±7.81kg) were randomly divided into two groups: group A (experimental) and B (control). Group A was given astaxanthin for 28 days at a moderate dose (12 mg/d) and placebo for 28 days at group B. 4 weeks later, all subjects underwent exercise on power bike. The antioxidant capacity and blood uric acid and the content of blood lactic acid was assayed using anti-oxidation Kit (FORD), blood lactic acid Kit (LACTIC ACID), blood uric acid Kit (URIC ACID). Results: 1) One hour after exercise, the antioxidant capacity in both A and B obviously increased without exception and the value of group A was obviously higher than B. The blood lactic acid in both groups dramatically declined and the value of group A was obviously lower than B. The blood uric acid rised in both groups and the value of A was obviously lower than B. Conclusions: Pre-supplement of astaxanthin can accelerate the recovery of antioxidant capacity, accelerate the clearance of blood lactate and delay the increase of blood uric acid in the body within 1 hour after exercise.
