Effectiveness of taurine supplementation during resistance training on selected biochemical parameters in boys


Author(s): Dr. P Samraj

Abstract: In this study 30 students of Bachelor of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University, who volunteered were selected as subjects on random basis. They were randomly drawn into three equal groups of 10 each namely placebo, taurine and control groups. The two independent variables selected were resistance training and taurine supplementation. Experiment group I and II underwent same resistance training regiments for eight weeks and in addition taurine was given during experimentation for group II and control group was kept idle. The independent variable selected were four biochemical parameters such as: TGL, LDH, TBARS and GPx and they were tested before and after experimentation. Blood sample was collected from the subjects and these parameters were estimated in Medical College laboratory by adopting standard methods. In this study randomized double - blind placebo 3x2 factorial design was followed. The Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and Scheffe’s Post-Hoc tests were computed for the data collected. It was concluded that a) the decrease on TGL level differs significantly between placebo and taurine groups in favour of taurine group, b) the increase on LDH activity between placebo and taurine groups does not differ significantly, c) the TBARS level has increased in placebo group and decreased in taurine group and, d) the GPx activity has increased in placebo group and decreased in taurine group.
