Effects of High Concentration Hydrogen Water Intake on Active Oxygen and Performance in Soccer Players
Objects : This study aimed to contribute towards improving athletic performance by comparing the effects of highly concentrated hydrogen intake before and during exercise on soccer players' metabolic and athletic performance. Materials and methods : This study followed a single-blind crossover design involving 10 male college soccer players. Before this experiment, the Vmax measurement and experimental familiarization stage were performed through pretesting. The exercise load test in this experiment involved a long-term intermittent high-intensity exercise protocol that reflects the specificity of soccer. It consisted of seven cycles taking about 120 minutes. Placebo (mineral water) or highly concentrated hydrogen water was administered 30 min before the exercise load test. Data: RER, VO2, VCO2, Fat oxidation, Carbohydrate oxidation, Heart rate, Active oxygen, Running time, Running distance.
