Mouthwash has reduced the benefits of exercise

The study, conducted by scientists from the University of Plymouth with colleagues From the center for genome regulation, Barcelona, examines the mechanism of formation of blood pressure reduction after exercise and the role of oral bacteria in it. The work is published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine.

During training, the vessels expand: the incoming nitric oxide causes relaxation of the smooth muscles of the vessels, thereby increasing their diameter. This increases the blood supply to the active muscles. After exercise blood circulation remains intense, and the vessels are dilated due to this reduced pressure. This effect, known as post-workout hypotension, is important for the recovery period after training and gaining muscle mass

To nitric oxide was allocated more effectively, it is necessary that the body received nitrites of nitrogen. It turned out that the bulk of nitrites obtained by living in the mouth of a healthy person microorganisms. Bacteria of the oral cavity treated with nitrates and secrete saliva nitrite. Swallowing saliva, a person receives nitrites, quickly absorbed and included in the process of blood circulation. Antibacterial mouthwashes break this chain and lead to deterioration of the recovery period after exercise.
