The Effect of Red Fruit Oil on Hematological Parameters and Endurance Performance at the Maximal Physical Activity
Abstract: Maximal physical activity can produce an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants which is possibly related to fatigue and tissue injury. Red fruit oil contains high betacarotene and tocopherol. This study was investigated the effect of red fruit oil on hematological parameters and endurance performance at maximal physical activity. This study was used pretest-posttest control group design. Thirty athletes are used as samples were divided into two groups. While undergoing the training program, the experimental group consumed the red fruit oil 5 ml every day. After undergoing the training program, all athletes perform maximum physical activity by doing a bleep test. Blood samples were collected before and after the test to measure hematological parameters. The result of the research was concluded that red fruit oil can affect hematological parameters and increase endurance and delay fatigue induced by maximal physical activity in athletes.
