A recent scientific research aimed to explain the effects of the glycerol supplement on the levels of epinephrine and kortisole parameters of sedentary individuals and some sportsmen who exercise regularly.In the research, forty students with an average age of 22.82 ± 1.49 year and an average weight of 73.96 ± 9.16 kg, who still study at the Physical Education and Sport Collage and the other faculties, were used as subjects.Subjects were they were as follows: 1. the group of sedentary, 2. the group of sedentary supplemented with glycerol, 3. the group of exercise, 4. the group of exercise supplemented with glycerol.The test of shuttle and run of 20 meters was applied to subjects in the groups E and GE within twenty days time. Subjects of the groups GS and GE were supplemented orally with the dose of 1.2 g/kg of glycerol at ten o’clock every morning within the period of twenty days. At the same time, samples of blood were taken from all the subjects before these tests. Besides, samples of blood were taken again after the tests. At the and of this period of time, the specified exercise tests were applied to all groups after the second blood test. After the exercise test, samples of blood were taken from the subjects the third time. Then, the samples of blood were taken from them two hours after the exercises the fourth time and also twenty four hours after the same exercises the fifth time again.The levels of serum epinephrine and also cortisole parameters available were measured. Having applied Variance Analysis regarding the importance control of differences of parameters among the groups, Duncan’s test of Multiple Range was applied. In addition to that, the test of Wilcoxon Signed Ranks was used to determine the differences within every group.In the meantime, accordingly, it was clearly understood that the average submaximal exercises applied in this work had a profound (P≤0.05) effect on the levels of serum epinephrine and cortisole on the levels the contrary. It can be said that the glycerol supplement applied together with this exercise protocol had no remarkable effect on the levels of serum epinephrine and cortisol also on the levels of at least by the sum used in the tests and in that limited period of time.
