Sesamin decreases exercise-induced lipid peroxidation?

  1. Sesamin decreases exercise-induced lipid peroxidation?

    Hi there, I was reading through pubmed to help me to decide wheter to buy more sesamin or not when I encountered this strange article:

    Protective effect of sesamin administration on exercise-induced lipid peroxidation.

    To investigate the mechanism of antioxidative effects of sesamin in vivo, 32 male ddY mice were administered with 10 mg/kg or 100 mg/kg of sesamin (S10, S100), 100 mg/kg of vitamin E (VE100) or control sample (C). They were subjected to 30 min of swimming exercise 2 h after the sample administration by using a new forced-swimming apparatus, i. e. an adjustable-current swimming pool. Exercise resulted in a significant increase in plasma lipid peroxides (LPO) in C and VE100 (p < 0.01), but not in S10 and S100. S100 showed significantly higher total glutathione peroxidase activity and glutathione S-transferase activity in liver compared to C (p < 0.05). In conclusion, sesamin may enhance LPO degradation in the liver resulting in the strong protective effects against exercise-induced plasma lipid peroxidation.

    Am I reading this correctly in saying that sesamin will shut-down fat-burning post-exercise?

  2. You're confusing a few terms here.

    Lipid Peroxidation is free radical induced electron theft resulting in cellular damage.

    Fatty acid oxidation is the burning off of fat in the mitochondria as a fuel source.

  3. Oh ok, thanks for clearing that up

  4. Is that you, Marc??

    I thought you abandoned that username.

  5. If you are referring to me, then no, I am not Marc.

    Your friend must be a classy guy though

    I registered here with it a few years ago, as well as a few other places...I just changed it to my real name at Mind and Muscle for the Guru Panel purposes.
