The role of supplementary calcium in submaximal exercise and endurance performance.

  title={The role of supplementary calcium in submaximal exercise and endurance performance.},
  author={Rehana Jawadwala},
Epidemiological data suggest a positive relationship between increased calcium intake and decreased fat and total body mass in healthy people (McCarron et al. 1984, Davies et al., 2000). An in-vitro model suggesting the role of cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate (cAMP) and phosphodiesterase 3B (PDE 3B) has been implicated in the relationship between calcium and lipolysis (Xue et al., 2001). The objective of the series of studies presented in this thesis was to investigate the ergogenicity of… 



Acute Effects of an Oral Calcium Load on Markers of Bone Metabolism During Endurance Cycling Exercise in Male Athletes

It is demonstrated that the burst of osteoclastic activity acutely induced by an endurance cycling exercise can be suppressed by the previous intake of a calcium load afforded by drinking high-calcium mineral water.

Effect of sodium citrate on performance and metabolism of human skeletal muscle during supramaximal cycling exercise

Though sodium citrate works in a similar way to NaHCO3 on plasma alkalinization and exercise performance, the exact nature of the mechanisms involved in the delay of exhaustion could be different and remains to be elucidated.

Dairy augmentation of total and central fat loss in obese subjects

Isocaloric substitution of yogurt for other foods significantly augments fat loss and reduces central adiposity during energy restriction.

Effects of moderate endurance exercise on calcium, parathyroid hormone, and markers of bone metabolism in young women

Young females showed biochemical signs of increased bone collagen turnover and altered homeostasis of calcium and PTH after a single bout of moderate endurance exercise.

Exercise-Trained Young Men Have Higher Calcium Absorption Rates and Plasma Calcitriol Levels Compared with Age-Matched Sedentary Controls

A higher fractional Ca absorption rate in physically active young men compared with sedentary controls is observed which is probably mediated by calcitriol.

Nutritional ergogenic aids and exercise performance

There is a theoretical basis, and limited evidence, to support the use of antioxidant vitamins and glutamine during periods of intensive training, but further evidence is required before the useof these supplements can be recommended.

The acute effects of different sources of dietary calcium on postprandial energy metabolism

Dairy Ca intake acutely stimulated postprandial fat oxidation; and there was a lesser suppression of NEFA following these meals; and no differences in diet-induced thermogenesis, insulin or glucose were observed.

Sodium citrate ingestion and its effects on maximal anaerobic exercise of different durations

It is suggested that a dose of 0.5 g·kg−1 body mass of sodium citrate could improve anaerobic exercise performance of 120-s and 240-s duration on the basis of the exercise undertaken in this study.

Regulation of fatty acid oxidation in untrained vs. trained men during exercise.

The present results suggest that the difference in fatty acid oxidation between trained and untrained individuals may be due to enhanced fatty acid entry into the mitochondria.

Effect of exercise and recovery on muscle protein synthesis in human subjects.

It is concluded that although aerobic exercise may stimulate muscle protein breakdown, this does not result in a significant depletion of muscle mass because muscle protein synthesis is stimulated in recovery.
