The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of supplementation with Calendula officinalis on delayed muscle soreness following a session of high intensity interval training in rowing men.Calendula has medicinal properties and compounds such as flavonoids, resins, glycosides, saponins, helenalines and steroids that have proven its medical effects. For this purpose, 30 rowers Active and practiced at national level were selected as available and randomly divided into experimental (n = 15) and control (n = 15) groups. Experimental group consumed almond extract for 7 days. To induce delayed muscle soreness after 7 days, both groups performed a high-intensity intermittent exercise session consisting of 6 sprint repetitions for 6 seconds at 4 times, with 6-second rest intervals between each repetition and 15 seconds between each repetition.
One week before high-intensity intermittent exercise, the first blood sampling, Sargent jump test and pain perception were taken. After 7 days of supplementation, blood samples were collected from right arm vein before, immediately, 24 and 48 hours after high intensity exercise, blood sampling, Sargent jump measurement and pain perception. 6 cc was taken. Serum TNF-α levels were measured by ELISA and creatine kinase spectrophotometrically. Statistical results showed no significant difference in creatine kinase levels between the two groups. But the levels of TNF-α and pain perception at the post-exercise intervals were significantly lower in the experimental group than in the control group. These findings suggest that consuming cauliflower can reduce the pain and inflammation caused by delayed muscle soreness in boats.
