Abstract: 

Background & Objectives: Garlic that is known as a medicinal plant for the treatment of cardiovascular and other metabolic diseases, include active photochemical units. Purpose of this study was to investigate the acute effects of garlic supplementation on oxygen consumption volume (Vo2), the volume of produced carbon dioxide (Vco2), and respiratory exchange ratio (RER) among athlete men with hot temper.
Materials & Methods: This study was semi experimental with pre-test and post-test project with a control group. The population of this study were all male students of Mohaghegh Ardabili University for the academic year 92-93.Thirty healthy young athletes (Age 20.0±0.8 yrs., Height 178.6±4.7 cm, Weight 71.5±8.9 kg) divided into two equal groups: supplementation (15 patients) and placebo (15 patients). The supplement group received each day for a week 1000 mg of garlic pill and placebo group each day for a week 500 mg of starch. All of the subjects participated before and after supplementation on self-dependent protocol. Vo2, Vco2 and RER of aerobic and anaerobic thresholds as well as maximal state were measured with the respiratory gas analysis system. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) aimed to control the pre-test scores as a covariate as well as the Omega Square test aimed to assess the effect size of garliconVo2, Vco2 and RER of aerobic and anaerobic thresholds as well as maximal state were used to analysis the data.
Results: Results indicated that short-term garlic supplementation has a significant effect on maximal oxygen (P=0.01) and the effect size was reported by 20%.However, garlic consumption reduced to as low as other cardio-respiratory indices that point was not statistically significant (P>0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the results we can conclude that presumably short-term supplementation of garlic impact on the maximum oxygen consumption in the healthy young athletes.
