Ganoderma lucidum improves athlete performance



Ganoderma lucidum improves athlete performance

Researchers at the Department of Biology and Biotechnology and Environmental Department of the University of Pavia (Italy),  recently found that the daily intake of two capsules of Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps sinensis three capsules for three consecutive months, improved performance seven workouts bikers "Gran Fondo". This was proved objectively by measuring the ratio of the rates of testosterone / cortisol and antioxidant activity by analyzing the variations of DPPH. The changes before and after exercise were statistically better in the group consuming Ganoderma for three months in the group of cyclists who took placebo. These results led them to conclude that the intake of Ganoderma lucidum and Cordioceps sinensis could protect athletes from the harmful effects of overtraining and should continue studies to standardize the usual diet with the addition of these supplements. Furthermore, in subsequent research, the number of parameters under study should be widened.

Findings are consistent with those discussed experiences in experimental rats subjected to periods of swimming until exhaustion brought Prior Ganoderma lucidum intake statistically significantly lengthened the time to utter exhaustion. Levels of lactic acid, urea, liver glycogen, and superoxide dismutase and peroxidase glutatation were measured before and after exercise. Varied significantly (for the better) in animals that had ingested as a supplement Ganoderma lucidum. Also Ganoderma lucidum intake increased and decreased antioxidant enzymes the Malondiolaldehído (MDA) in skeletal muscle. Both studies concluded that Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides, exercised an energizing power to significantly reduce fatigue and increase muscle fatigue resistance, by decreasing oxidative stress in muscle. It was considered advisable to continue studying the effects of Ganoderma lucidum on high performance athletes.

Therefore, and in line with these studies it can be deduced that opens a promising future to study the resistance to effort and training elite athletes and the role they can play the supplement of Ganoderma lucidum in your diet.
