Abstract:
Nutraceutical is the hybrid of “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”. Nutraceuticals; in broad, are food or part of food playing a significant role in modifying and maintaining normal physiological function that maintains healthy human beings. They are also known as medical foods, nutritional supplements and a foodstuff (as a fortified food or dietary supplement) that provides health benefits in addition to its basic nutritional. Nutraceuticals are active substances extracted from vegetal (as phytocomplexes) or animal origin food concentrated and administered in a suitable pharmaceutical form. These are multi-component, micro-nutrient based, containing dietary ingredients, for example, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or other botanical or dietary substances, which are not specifically addressed to prevent or cure an health issue. Dietary protein plays a critical role in countless physiological processes in the body. It is also required to maximize the adaptive response of skeletal muscle to more prolonged resistance-type exercise training. It has been well established that ingestion of dietary protein before resistance-type exercise increases post exercise muscle protein synthesis rates and inhibits muscle protein breakdown, thereby allowing net muscle protein accretion during the acute post exercise recovery period. Energy balance is an important factor in sustaining training load and maintaining high performance during strenuous exercise. It has been reported that the intake of high-energy foods increases muscle glycogen content, which can prolong exercise time and delay fatigue. Recently, several studies have indicated that high protein high energy supplementation high protein supplementation provide the following benefits: enhancing muscle glycogen and sports performance, extending endurance times, resistance to fatigue, decreasing oxidative stress after strenuous exercise, and detoxifying the body. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of multiple blend nutraceutical bar supplementation on endurance performance in a weight loaded swimming test in animal model.
