        Background: Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks of aerobic training and resveratrol consumption on the indicators of metabolic syndrome in overweight women. Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 32 women with metabolic syndrome with body mass index of 25-29 / 29 were purposefully selected and randomly divided into four groups (8 people): aerobic training, resveratrol supplementation, training + supplementation and control. The training protocol was performed on a treadmill for 8 weeks with 3 sessions of 60 minutes per week, with an intensity of 75-60% of the heart rate. The supplement groups took one capsule containing 400 mg of resveratrol daily. Blood sampling was performed before the start of the research protocol and 48 hours after the last training session. Analysis of covariance and Bonferroni post hoc test were used (P ≤ 0.05). Results: The results showed that aerobic training with supplementation led to a significant decrease in waist circumference, blood pressure, fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL and a significant increase in maximal oxygen consumption (P = 0.001). Conclusion: Based on the results of the study, taking resveratrol supplementation along with aerobic training can have a positive effect on the indicators of metabolic syndrome. It is recommended to use aerobic training and resveratrol supplement to improve the physical condition of overweight women. Manuscript Document

        Background: Irisin is released from the Fndc5 protein in muscle cell through physical activity and effects on metabolism through browning of white fat. The purpose of this study was to the effect of resistance training and supplementation of nanocurcumin on the expression of genes of FNDC5 and PPARɣ rat muscle tissue. Materials and Methods: In this experimental study, 32 rats were randomly divided into four groups (Control, resistance training, nanocurcumin, resistance training + nanocurcumin). The training groups program included 4 weeks, 3 days a week from climbing on a stepladder. Nanocarcmine (80 mg / kg) was given gavage in complementary groups for four weeks daily. FNDC5 and PPARƔ gene expression were measured using the RT-PCR method. Data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA with a significant level of P≤0.05. Results: The results showed that resistance training and supplementation of Nanocarcmine significantly increased the expression of the gene of FNDC5 and PPARɣ in muscle tissue of rat (P <0.05). Conclusion: It seems resistance training with nanocurcumin supplementation may stimulate secretion of FNDC5 & PPARƔ from muscle, that has a key role in the metabolism of adipose tissue and the conversion of white tissue to brown fat tissue.
