  Abstract:  

Background. The intake of zinc has shown great improvements on aerobe effort capacity and oxidants/antioxidants balance (O/AO). Aims. Trained animals was monitored experimentally under conditions of normobaric normoxia (NNB), the immediate effect of zinc supplementation on aerobic capacity, and the immediate effect of zinc supplementation, exposure to chronic hypobaric hypoxia (HHC), 1500, 2500, on the aerobic exercise. Methods. The research was conducted on six lots of animals (n=10/lot), Wistar rats, exposed to HHC, in 1500m, 2500m, simulated altitude. The lots were exposed to training (running) with or without intake of Zn. Results. Our research results suggest that zinc supplementation, training and exposure to hypobaric hypoxia increases aerobic capacity. Conclusions. Zn supplementation, training and exposure to hypobaric hypoxia cause a significant increase in aerobic exercise capacity under conditions of normobaric normoxia baseline.

Key words: zinc, aerobe exercise capacity, physical effort, oxidants, antioxidants, hypobaric hypoxia.
