Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver is the most common liver disease in the world. Due to protective effects and improvement of portulaca oleracea on liver function, this study aimed to determine the effect of combined training and Portulaca oleracea supplement on body composition indices and physical fitness factors in obese females with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Materials and Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 40 obese females with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease were randomly divided into four groups of combined training with portulaca oleracea (n=10), placebo (n=10), portulaca oleracea (n=10) and training (n=10). Training was performed three sessions per week for twelve weeks. The amount of portulaca oleracea consumption was 500 mg per day for twelve weeks. Body composition, physical fittness and liver enzymes variables were assessed at baseline and after the end of interventions. Paired t-test and two-way anova were used.
Results: the results of the present study showed that muscular strength (P=0.00) and vo2 max (P=0.00), body max index (P=0.00), WHR (P=0.00), BF% (P=0.00), ALT (P=0.00), AST (P=0.00) were significant differences between the four groups (P<0.05)
Conclusion: It seems that combined training and taking portulaca oleracea supplementation can improve body composition, physical fitness and liver enzymes in obese females with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
