Two kinds of Chinese tonics which can respectively tonify the kidney ( TTK ) and reinforce the spleen ( RTS ) were produced. Twenty-four male athletes,aged 18 to 23 years old,were randomly divided into three groups. TTK group, RTS group and the control group.The subjects drank TTK, RTS tonics and placeboes ( 10ml, Bid ) for four weeks respectively. The aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity, immunoglobulin ( IgG,IgM,IgA) and hemoglobin ( HB ) were investigated before and four weeks after drinking the tonics and placeboes. The changes tested four weeks after drinking TTK were as follows. (1)4mM lactic anaerobic threshold increased from 1S8.75±4.61W to 204.50±9.32W(P0.05); (2) Blood lactate decreased from 10.58±0.96mM/L to 9.15±1.15mM/L (P0.05)and from 9.38±1.03mM/L to 7.85±1.16mM/L(P0.05)in 5 minutes and 10 minutes after exercise respectively; ( 3 ) An2 increased from 640.88±36.71W to 673.00±30.4W(P0.01). The changes after drinking RTS for four weeks included. ( a ) IgM increased from 88.75±l4.46mg/dl to 137.85±15.17mg/dl (P 0.05); ( b ) Hb increased from 14.73 ±0.4.2g% to 15.26±0.59g%(P0 .05). The results showed that the two kinds of Chinese tonics may improve athletes'performance in various degrees.
