Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of ten weeks of high intensity interval training (HIIT) with ginger supplementation on the systemic inflammatory response to acute HIIT exercise. Twenty four sedentary overweight women randomly assigned into three groups’ including HIIT + ginger (n=8), HIIT + placebo (n=8) and ginger (n=8). Sixteen women performed ten weeks of HIIT while the supplement consuming groups daily took 3 gm. of ginger pills and the HIIT + placebo group took placebo. Serum samples were collected at rest and immediately post-acute exercise, before and after the training. Two-way repeated measures ANOVA, paired t test, one-way ANOVA and post hoc Bonferroni were used to analyze data. Results indicated that three groups similarly affect the Monocyte Chemo tactic protein-1 (MCP-1) and Interlukine-10 (IL-10) changes in response to acute exercise (p>0.05) whereas significant increase in intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in HIIT + placebo group in comparison with HIIT + ginger group (p=0.02) in second acute exercise was observed. The combination of HIIT and ginger consumption may induce a modest inflammatory attenuation of atherosclerosis factors in response to acute exercise and improvement in Vo2max and PBF results rather than ginger and training alone, in young sedentary overweight women.
