AIM: This study investigates the effects of 8 weeks of combined jumping exercise and honey supplementation on bone turnover markers in women. METHODS: Forty four healthy sedentary women (25-40 year-old) were age and weight matched, and subsequently being assigned into four groups with n=11 per group: Control (C), honey supplementation (H), aerobic dance exercise (Ex) and combined aerobic dance exercise with honey supplementation (HEx) groups. Aerobic dance exercise was carried out for one hour /session, three times/week for eight weeks. Honey drink was consumed by H and HEx groups, in a dosage of 20g of honey diluted in 300ml of plain water, for 7 days/week for 8 weeks. In HEx group, the subjects were required to consume honey drink 30 minutes before performing exercise. Before and after 8 weeks of experimental period, subjects’ percentages of body fat were measured. Additionally, blood samples were taken to determine the concentrations of bone osteocalcin (bone formation marker), serum C-terminal telopeptide of type 1 collagen (1CTP) (bone resorption marker), and parathyroid hormone (PTH). Repeated measure ANOVA was performed to determine the significance of the differences between and within groups. RESULTS: At the end of 8 weeks of experimental period, it was found that there was significant increase of percentage of body fat compared to the pre test value in H, however, this observation was not evident in C, Ex and HEx groups. At post test, the percentages of increment in 1CTP, a bone resorption marker, and PTH concentrations in HEx group were the lowest compared to the other experimental groups. Nevertheless, there was no significant change in serum osteocalcin in HEx. CONCLUSION: The present results suggest that combination of aerobic dance exercise and honey supplementation may elicit effects on reducing increment in bone resorption compared to honey supplementation and aerobic exercise alone in adult women.
