Administration of pismatom juice increasing of potassium serum levels and faster of recovery in middle run athletes PASI Denpasar, Bali-Indonesia


Introduction: Intense prolonged physical exercises such as athletic need more energy. It causes fatigue and sweat excretion which is possibly related to decreasing of electrolyte and recovery delay. This research aimed to prove that administration of mix juice of banana, honey, and tomato (pismatom) increasing of potassium serum levels and faster of recovery in middle run athletes.

Method: This research was an experimental design using randomized pre-test-post-test control group design using 28 middle run athletes. Selected samples divided into two groups using random allocation technique. Treatment group was given pismatom juice before and after physical activity with 240 of volume and control group was given mineral water before and after physical activity with 240 ccs of volume during 14 days. Blood-vein measurement was used to evaluate potassium serum levels and measure of pulse recovery rate. The statistical analysis using SPSS version 20.0 for windows, comparison of electrolyte level and recovery time using t-independent test and General Linear Model (GLM).

Result: The results showed that potassium serum levels increasing significantly (p<0.05) in the Treatment Group (4.90 + 0.17 mmol/L vs 3.69 + 0.15 mmol/L). Pulse rate indicate the recovery more faster in the Treatment Group to 3rd minute recovery pulse (RPR3) (124.21+6.61 x/mnt vs 131.57+12.49 x/mnt), to 4th minute recovery pulse (RPR4) (120.14+8.29 x/mnt vs 126.50+12.13 x/mnt) and to 5th minute recovery pulse  (RPR5) (111.29+6.69 x/mnt vs 123.14+12.06 x/mnt) that was significantly different (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The conclusion of this research was the administration of Pismatom juice increasing potassium serum levels and faster of recovery.
