The effects of melatonin on several parameters of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism were investigated in exercised and nonexercised rats. Animals were run to exhaustion on a rodent treadmill at 24 m/min and a 12% slope. Exercise resulted in a significant hypoglycemia and increased plasma levels of lactate and beta-hydroxybutyrate, together with a significant reduction of glycogen in muscle and liver. Muscle and liver glycogen content was elevated and plasma free fatty acid decreased in… CONTINUE READING
