ORIGINAL PAPER : Effects of Konan red ginseng intake during endurance training on resting energy metabolism in male mice
This study was designed to investigate the effect of red ginseng (RG) intake during 2 weeks of training on the resting energy metabolism in mice. RG (20 mg/kg body weight) were orally administered to 7-week old male ICR mice during 2 weeks of endurance training. The resting metabolic rate for 24h was measured before and after the 2 week experimental periods. The total amount of food intake was significantly higher in the RG group than in the control group (p < 0.05), whereas mean body weight was not different. Oxygen uptake during 24 hours both before and after the experimental session was not different between the two groups. Carbohydrate oxidation and fat oxidation in resting were significantly decreased and increased by endurance training, respectively, but no difference was observed between the two groups. Accordingly. we suggest that red ginseng intake of 20mg/kg body weight during 2 weeks of endurance training may not affect resting energy metabolism (RER) over one day in male mice.
Key Words: ginseng, endurance training, RMR, carbohydrate oxidation, fat oxidation
