Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts. 3, 131-144 (1998)


Objective

We examined effects on the level of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max: an index of a capacity to take up oxygen per minute) after taking the OM-X capsules.

 

Methods

The study subjects were 6 adult male athletes. We measured their VO2max before taking the OM-X capsules. The subjects took the OM-X capsules every day for two weeks. After the ingestion periods were concluded, we measured their VO2max, hemoglobin levels in blood and blood lactate levels. Subsequently, we evaluated the effect of the OM-X capsules toward VO2max.

 

Results

The intake of the OM-X capsules for 2 weeks increased the VO2max by an average of 30% per weight of the 6 adult male subjects being tested. There was not much change in the blood lactate levels and the hemoglobin levels in blood increased approximately 8.4 % after the intake of the OM-X capsules.

This study has revealed that the OM-X capsules can increase the VO2max of athletes.
