Shaoyong WAN, Wenhong ZHANG


To observe the effect of Chinese medicine health care products Shouwu capsules on immune function in athletes during training, and to explore its possible mechanism. Methods: the test group received can strengthen the immune function of Chinese medicine health Shouwu capsules, the control group did not take. CD4+CD8+ CD4+, CD8+, T lymphocyte subsets ( + ) and CD4+/CD8+ ratio, serum immunoglobulin ( Ig ) IgA, IgG, IgM were observed before and after the experimental period, 30 days of observation, changes of immune function in athletes. Results : after the experiment, the test group CD4+ significantly increased the proportion of IgG ratio, numerical experiment, compared with before the experiment with statistical difference, P ≤ 0.05, CD4+CD8+ group ( + ) ratio decreased significantly, P ≤ 0.05. Conclusion: take Shouwu capsules can improve athletes the percentage of CD4 positive cells, can enhance the immune function of T lymphocytes, immune response in the balance of IgG, can regulate humoral immune function. Can effectively improve the athletes sleep, appetite, physical strength, improve the athlete ‘s body function, more conducive to the improvement of sports performance.
