ABSTRACT
In this study,investigating the effect of vitamin E on oxidant and antioxidant capacity in football players was aimed. A total of 27 volunteer men composed of 15 trained football players as supplement group and 12 men as control group participated in the study. Body weight and body mass index parameters were taken to determine physical characteristics. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate and oxygen saturation values were taken to determine the physiological characteristics. Total antioxidant capacity, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, and creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase activities were evaluated.In the intergroup comparison, while no difference was found in physical and physiological findings between pre- and post-exercise (P≥0.05), there was a significant difference in pre-exercise pulse rate (p≤0.05). In intra- and intergroup comparisons, no significant difference was found in pre- and post-exercise TAC, TBARS, CK and LDH values (p≥0.05).In conclusion, antioxidant supplementation in accordance with the type, duration and intensity of physical activity may be beneficial for athletes in order to decrease oxidative stress and increase antioxidant capacity. It is thought that supporting exercises with vitamins and the other antioxidant supplements may be effective to decrease oxidant capacity and increase the antioxidant level.
