Background: Considering Chlorella vulgaris role in improving the antioxidant system, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of six weeks of high intensity interval training (HIIT) program and Chlorella vulgaris supplements on levels of oxidative stress markers in overweight men.
Materials and methods: Thirty subjects in this study (Age: 22.8±2.1 yrs; BMI: 27.1±9.6 Kg/m2) were randomly assigned into three groups: supplement + exercise, placebo + training, and training groups. Before and 48 hours after the end of six weeks of HIIT, blood samples were taken from subjects and used for Malondialdehyde (MDA), protein carbonyl (PC) and nitric oxide (NO) serum levels measurements. The participantschr('39') training program included six weeks of HIIT progressive exercise three days a week with 90% maximum heart rate intensity. Subjects of the supplement group received Chlorella vulgaris supplement (300 mg) four times daily for six weeks, and the placebo group consumed Sucrose tablets similar to the chlorella tab.
Results: The results showed that Chlorella vulgaris supplementation with HIIT exercises significantly decreased MDA and PC compared to other groups (p<0.05). Also, NO levels when comparing the three groups showed a significant increase in the supplement+exercise group compared to the training group (p<0.05) but did not show significant differences with the placebo+training group.
Conclusion: High-intensity physical activity along with Chlorella vulgaris compared to intense exercise without chlorella can have more beneficial effects on antioxidant indices in overweight people.
