Acute supplementation of 200 mg Panax ginseng (PG) or 30 gm honey (H30) or 60 gm honey (H60) imparted beneficial effects on endurance performance parameters. This self-controlled double-blind study was conducted in 12 healthy males (aged 20-25 years) to assess whether combination of H30 and PG (H30PG) or combination of H60 and PG (H60PG) could be more effective than placebo (PL) in enhancing endurance exercise performance. Heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) were recorded after every 10 minutes. Blood samples were taken before supplementation and at exhaustion for analysis of glucose, insulin, lactate, free-fatty-acids, lipid peroxidation, superoxide-dismutase, catalase, and total-thiol. Data were analyzed by paired t-test and one-way ANOVA with post-hoc analysis. Endurance time was significantly (p<0.05) higher in H60PG trial followed by H30PG trial compared to PL trial. Experimental trials showed significantly (p<0.05) higher values than PL trial in exercise heart-rate, RPE, glucose, insulin, catalase, superoxide-dismutase, and total-thiol while significantly (p<0.05) lower values in plasma lactate, free-fatty-acid, and lipid-peroxidation. Though no significant change was observed between H60PG and H30PG trials, yet H60PG showed better result than H30PG. Thus, ingestion of H30PG and H60PG exerted better ergogenic effect than PL in healthy adults.
