Athletes carrying heavy physical exertion are well aware of the destructive effects of free radicals. Continue reading
Abstract: The article is devoted to the evaluation of lunar influences on the recovery processes of the human body (men and women 20 to 45 years) after exercise. The article discusses the physiological rationale of improving human health through physical exercise, taking into account selected lunar influence. Suggests that it is possible to intensify the process of recovery after exercise, when you consider the lunar influence in the training process.
Keywords: Moon phase (quarter) of the moon, and tides. Vegetative index. Physical activity, the recovery of the body. Men and women 20-45 years.
Accumulated, to date, numerous experimental data indicate an important role of Helio-geophysical factors and their influence on the human body. Wide material of the current literature shows the influence of the changing lunar phases and tidal phenomena on the functioning of the human body in health and disease . However, research on potential lunar influences on the processes of recovery after exercise, was conducted. Continue reading
