PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND CHILDREN In children ages 9 to 16, as total physical activity (TPA) increased, fasting insulin decreased 1 TPA decreased between ages 9 and 16 1 In children ages 6 to 8, TPA declined with age. 2 In children ages 7 to 10, TPA increase leads to increased bone mineral density, decreased blood pressure, decreased total cholesterol. 3 In children ages 5 to 12, as TPA increased, bone mineral density increased. 4 Children ages 8 to 9, were observed during recess on 4 consecutive days. As body mass index increased, activity decreased; that is, the heavier the child, the less active. 5 1 Hurtig Wennlöf, A., Yngve, A., Sjöström, M.

INFLUENCE OF PRE-EXERCISE CARBOHYDRATE MEALS ON A 21-KM RUN Methods: 8 endurance-trained male runners, averaging 33 years of age, in a random, crossover study. Testing was performed on 2 occasions with a meal, 2 hours prior to testing, that provided 15% protein, 65% carbohydrate, and 20% fat, totaling approximately 580 calories. One meal contained high glycemic index carbohydrates (77), the other low glycemic index carbohydrates (37). Protein and fat sources were unchanged. Results: All 8 improved their time in a 21K (12.5 mile) run following the low glycemic index meal. Average improvement was 98 minutes versus 101 minutes. Low glycemic index also increased fat oxidation 17.9% and decreased carbohydrate oxidation 9.5%. Wong, S.H., Lok, A., Morris, J. Influence of Pre-exercise Carbohydrate Meals on a 21-KM Run. Med. Sci.

OXYGENATED WATER AND ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE Methods: 5 brands of oxygenated water plus tap water were analyzed for their oxygen content. Results: Brands:12345 Tap Water mL O 2 per 355 mL (12 oz)8.933.737.342.680.28.9 Hampson, N.B., Pollock, N.W., Piantadosi, C.A. Oxygenated Water and Athletic Performance. JAMA.2003; 290(18): 2408-9.
OXYGENATED WATER AND ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE Air contains 20.9% oxygen. Normal human breath contains 500 mL of air..209 x 500 = 104.5 mL O 2 – average single breath “Given that hemoglobin is already nearly saturated with oxygen during air breathing, and that only a small amount of additional oxygen can be dissolved in plasma, it is not surprising that oxygenated water did not improve maximal exercise performance.” Hampson et al Hampson, N.B., Pollock, N.W., Piantadosi, C.A. Oxygenated Water and Athletic Performance. JAMA.2003; 290(18): 2408-9.
DOES REJECTION HURT? FMRI STUDY OF SOCIAL EXCLUSION Methods: 13 subjects from UCLA underwent MRI brain scans on 3 different occasions. 1 – as bystanders 2 – as participants in a virtual video game 3 – as a participant in a video game where systematic exclusion resulted in a sense of social rejection Results: As social isolation increased, so did blood flow to the anterior cingulate cortex. This is very similar to the blood flow pattern found in physical pain. Social and physical pain share common neuroanatomical brain blood flow patterns. Eisenberger, N.I. Does Rejection Hurt? fMRI Study of Social Exclusion. Science. 2003; 302: 290-2.
A META-ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE THE DOSE RESPONSE FOR STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT Methods: 140 studies with a total of 1433 subjects analyzed. Results Optimal Loads – maximum strength gains attained: Untrained subjects, 60% of 1-rep maximum. Trained subjects, 80% of 1-rep maximum. Frequency – maximum gains attained (muscle group): Untrained subjects, 3 times per week. Trained subjects, 2 times per week. Rhea, M.R., Alvar, B.A, Burkett, L.N., Ball, S.D.

EFFECTS OF GINSENG ON SECRETORY IGA, PERFORMANCE, AND RECOVERY FROM INTERVAL EXERCISE Methods: 400 mg a day of a standardized ginseng concentrate equivalent to 2000 mg of Panax ginseng powder or placebo was consumed for 8 weeks. Results: Ginseng did not enhance immune response, exercise performance, or heart rate recovery following repeated bouts of exhaustive exercise. Engels, H.J., Falman, M.M., Wirth, J.C. Effects of Ginseng on Secretory IgA, Performance, and Recovery from Interval Exercise. Med. Sci. Sp. Ex. April 2003; 35(4): 690-6.
EFFECT OF ALPHA LIPOIC ACID COMBINED WITH CREATINE MONOHYDRATE ON HUMAN SKELETAL MUSCLE CREATINE AND PHOSPHAGEN CONCENTRATION EFFECT OF ALPHA LIPOIC ACID COMBINED WITH CREATINE MONOHYDRATE ON HUMAN SKELETAL MUSCLE CREATINE AND PHOSPHAGEN CONCENTRATION Methods: Experienced weight lifters with higher than normal levels of creatine who eat red meat on a regular basis were tested following 3 protocols. Creatine 5 gm, 4 times a day for 5 days Creatine 5 gm plus 25 gm of sucrose, 4 times a day for 5 days Creatine 5 gm plus 25 gm of sucrose plus 250 mg of alpha lipoic acid, 4 times a day for 5 days Results: When lipoic acid was added to loading regimen, there was a significant increase in intramuscular phosphocreatine and total creatine compared to creatine and creatine with a small amount of sugar in trained participants who consumed red meat.

Vitamin B-12 and Seniors 24% deficient over 60; 32% deficient over 70; 37% deficient over 80 B-12 in food is protein bound. GI inflammation and atrophy can not break the protein bonds. Vitamins that are not protein bound are absorbed. RX- Oral deficiency replacement 100-500 mcg/day (RDA 2mcg/day) to insure enough gets absorbed. Consider referral for IM delivering. Zoler, MC. B12 Deficiency Can Escape Detection, Family Practice News, January 1 2004, P25
EFFECT OF POST-EXERCISE ETHANOL INTOXICATION ON THE FREE TESTOSTERONE RESPONSE TO RESISTANCE EXERCISE IN MEN Methods: 9 physically fit subjects (10.8±1.8 body fat), ages 21 to 34, on 3 different occasions performed each of the following: 1. Resistance exercise – 45 minute whole body circuit weight training with a heavy load (5 ‑ RM). 2. The same resistance workout followed by ethanol ingestion to a blood alcohol level of 0.10 g/dL. 3. No exercise or alcohol.
Results: Getting intoxicated following exercise not only prevented a post-resistance testosterone decrease, but actually increased testosterone 25% over resting conditions. This increase was present beginning at 60 minutes post exercise. Free testosterone continued to be elevated over the 5-hour period of monitoring. Recommendations: This study must be repeated with a much larger sample size and a much longer time period before the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians can issue a position statement recommending that our patients get hammered following workouts.
