Introduction: Non-alcoholic fatty liver is one of the most common liver diseases. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of 12 weeks of moderate aerobic exercise and honey consumption on total antioxidant capacity and malondialdehyde in non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases male rats.
Methodology: In this experimental study, 24 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups: control group, honey group, training group, and honey group. Honey was given at a rate of 5 grams per kilogram of body weight by gavage method. The training protocol was started for 12 weeks (5 sessions in every week) with the speed of 10 m/min for 10 minutes. after 12 weeks, this reached 25 m/min for 60 minutes per day. In the end of study, samples were taken from the rat liver tissue and the activity of total antioxidant capacity and total malondialdehyde was measured. In order to data analysis, SPSS software was used. the data were analyzed for the normal distribution (Kolmogorov-Smirnov test). To compare the meanings, Two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Tukey’s Post Hoc test was used.
Results: The results showed that the separated and combined effects of long-term aerobic training and honey consumption significantly increased the total antioxidant capacity and significantly reduced the concentration of malondialdehyde in rats compared to controls (P<0.05).
Discussion: According to the findings, long-term aerobic training with honey consumption may increase the antioxidant defense system and reduce lipid peroxidation. Nevertheless, more research is needed to prove this.
