Introduction: Exercise-related stress changes the amount of cytokines produced. Dietary supplements can accelerate the muscle recovery process. Q10 is one of the most effective and nutritional supplements that is prescribed to reduce the inflammatory-oxidative damage. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effect of Q10 supplementation and recovery in water on serum levels of IL-6 and IL-1Beta in active girls following eccentric exercises.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 32 active female students aged 19-21 years old were randomly assigned to four groups of 8 people: placebo, exercise + recovery, exercise + Q10 and exercise + recovery + Q10. The protocol was 60-minutes sessions of eccentric exercises three days a week for 3 weeks. Blood samples were taken at three points during the study: before the intervention, after eccentric exercises and after recovery.
Results: The use of Q10 supplementation and recovery in water following eccentric exercises caused a significant difference in serum levels of IL-6 in the exercise + recovery, exercise + Q10 and exercise + recovery + Q10 groups compared to the placebo group (P=0.035). However, no significant change was observed in the levels of interleukin-1 beta in the exercise + recovery, exercise + Q10 and exercise + recovery + Q10 compared to the placebo group (P= 0.349).
Conclusion: Q10 supplementation along with a vigorous eccentric exercise program had beneficial effects on interleukin-6 inflammatory factor. Therefore, due to its antioxidant properties, Q10 supplementation is recommended as a non-pharmacological approach to helping muscle soreness in active individuals. However, this supplement does not result in reduction of some inflammatory factors, including interleukin-1 beta.
