The effect of chronic administration of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) on swimming endurance (swim capacity) was investigated in male Std ddY mice. The mice were fed a diet containing 80 g MCT + 20 g long-chain triglycerides (LCT)/kg diet for 6 wk; mice fed diet containing 100 g LCT/kg diet were used as controls. After being accustomed to swimming, the mice were subjected to forced swimming every 2 d in the current water pool that we had developed, and the total swimming period until… Expand

Dietary conjugated linoleic acid increases endurance capacity of mice during treadmill exercise.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that dietary CLA enhances the endurance capacity of mice by increasing fat utilization and reducing the consumption of stored liver glycogen as substrates for energy metabolism. Expand
Enhancement of swimming endurance in mice by highly branched cyclic dextrin.
TLDR
It is concluded that the prolongation of swimming endurance in mice administered with HBCD depended on its rapid and longer-lasting ability for supplying glucose with a lower postprandial blood insulin response, leading to a delayed onset of fatigue. Expand
L-Carnitine enhances exercise endurance capacity by promoting muscle oxidative metabolism in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that LC administration promotes fat oxidation and mitochondrial biogenesis while sparing stored glycogen in skeletal muscle during prolonged exercise, resulting in enhanced endurance capacity. Expand
Dietary conjugated linoleic acid increases endurance capacity and fat oxidation in mice during exercise
TLDR
It is suggested that CLA ingestion increases endurance exercise capacity by promoting fat oxidation during exercise by contributing more as an energy substrate in the CLA-fed mice. Expand
Relationship between the Effect of Dietary Fat on Swimming Endurance and Energy Metabolism in Aged Mice
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary safflower oil improves the swimming endurance of aged mice to a greater extent than lard, and that this effect appears to involve glycogen sparing through increased fatty acid utilization. Expand

Effects of daily medium-chain triglyceride ingestion on energy metabolism and endurance performance capacity in well-trained runners
TLDR
It is suggested that daily MCTG supplementation increases the availability of ketone bodies for oxidation in working muscle during high intensity endurance exercise, but does not improve endurance performance capacity. Expand
