Enzymatic activity was analyzed in the soleus, gastrocnemius (red and white) and plantaris muscles of acutely exercised rats after long-term administration of Panax ginseng extract in order to evaluate the protective role of ginseng against skeletal muscle oxidation. Ginseng extract (3, 10, 100, or 500 mg/kg) was administered orally for three months to male(More)
PURPOSE Criterion-referenced cut-points for health-related fitness measures are lacking. This study aimed to determine the associations between aerobic fitness and high blood pressure levels (HBP) to determine the cut-points that best predict HBP among adolescents. METHOD This cross-sectional school-based study with sample of 875 adolescents aged 14-19(More)
Several different exercise regimens varied in the severity of tissue damage induced. Therefore, this study investigated the effects of a single bout of exercise versus endurance training in heart and skeletal muscles with different predominant fiber types on indices of mitochondrial, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) integrity and protein degradation. Male Wistar(More)
Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, the root of an Araliaceae plant has been shown to possess various biological effects. Ginseng treatment (100 mg kg(-1)) protected muscles from eccentric exercise injuries. It was effective in preserving mitochondrial membrane integrity and reduced nitrate concentration in vastus and rectus (46% and 26%, respectively). It also(More)
Eccentric muscle contraction causes fibre injury associated with disruption of the myofibrillar cytoskeleton. The medicinal plant Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, known for its therapeutic properties, was studied to explore its protective effects after eccentric contraction. A crude extract and a standardised extract (G115) of different saponin compositions were(More)
The aim of this study was to identify prevalence and factors associated with violent behavior among adolescents in Aracaju and Metropolitan region. The study included 2207 adolescents (16.03±1.08 years old) enrolled in high schools of the State Public Network.
