Fatty acid

Fatty acids are simple lipids and consist of long hydrocarbon chains. Fatty acid - a component of more complex lipids, they provide most of the calories of dietary fat. Fatty acids are classified based on the number of carbon atoms in the molecule (chain length).They can be saturated, i.e.without double bonds.These include lauric acid (C12: 0), myristic (C14: 0), palmitic (C16: 0) and s...

Fat metabolism during exercise

fats with carbohydrates oxidized in the muscles to supply energy to the working muscles.The extent to which they can compensate the energy consumption depends on the duration and intensity of exercise.Hardy (& gt; 90 min) with trained athletes typically 65-75% V02max and limited reserves of carbohydrates in the body.After 15-20 minutes of endurance load stimulates the oxidation of fat...

Aerobic exercise and substrate oxidation

Dietary fat during aerobic workout retain carbohydrates, increasing fat oxidation and decreasing oxidation of carbohydrates.This reduction in carbohydrate oxidation can increase endurance because of fats used for energy.It has been hypothesized that an increase in dietary fat intake may enhance oxidation of fatty acids, carbohydrates to maintain and improve other indicators.However, avail...
