Abstract

Many chemical elements at trace level in human body play vital role in health and Copper is one of them. Exercise changes the level of many chemical elements. The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of exercise on the copper level of overweight male and female measured at nano scale level.23 healthy overweight young male and female performed aerobic exercise two times per week. The blood sample was collected prior to the start and at the end of the program. They performed submaximal exercise. Statistical analysis using t-test indicated that there was a significant increase in the level of copper of both groups (P=0.07, P =0.0001).No significant difference between the level of copper between the men and women in posttest was present. No significant differences between the pretest and posttest level of copper in both groups was found (p>0.05). The results demonstrated that two months of exercise increased the level of serum copper in male and female subjects. Therefore, there is no change in hemostasis level of the subjects who participate in this kind of activity and there no need to consume supplementary copper during the physical activity exercise.
