The effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation during footsal competition on serum lymphocyte and cortisol on the male players

The aim of this study was to determin the effects of coenzyme Q10 Supplementation during Footsal competition on serum Lymphocyte and cortisol on the male players. Twenty four male footsal player of league(age23/5±1year, height174/75±5.2cm,body mass 71/3±3.5 kg and BMI 22/72±1) were selected and randomly assigned in four groups:( coenzyme Q10, competition + coenzyme Q10,competition + placebo and (placebo) . Based on research design, players took coenzyme supplement (100 mg coenzyme Q10) or placebo three times daily .The players accomplished three successive footsal competitions in time period of 4-6 p.m. The blood samples were collected for analysis of serum lymphocyte and cortisol at the rest status before, immediately and 24 hours after the final session of competitions .data were analyzed by repeated measure ANOVA,LSD post hoc test at P<0.05. Results showed that effect of supplementary consumption of coenzyme Q10 on lymphocyte levels during three consecutive matches in competition group with supplement was significantly (p=0.0001) different from other groups and there was no significant differences in blood levels of cortisol.The post hoc test indicated that lymphocyte level of significance were decreased in second stage and increased in third . Based on the results consumption of coenzyme Q10 supplement at the time of successive footsal competitions can decrease serum lymphocyte in second step and increase in third step of male footsal players , so can have a beneficial effect on players’ immune system. It is suggested that, Footsal players use coenzyme Q10 supplement during consecutive matches.
