Abstract

Regular exercise can increase the sensitivity of endogenous antioxidants so that it can increase the immune system against viral infections. Antioxidants like bioflavonoids, which are found in lemon peel essential oil, help shield the body from the damaging effects of free radicals and immunomodulators. The goal of this research was to find out whether or not frequent moderate-intensity exercise and the lemon peel essential oil can boost immunity during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The experimental animals were separated into two groups at random, with ten white rats in each group: group P1 consisted of rats that participated in swimming activities of moderate intensity for forty minutes; group P2 consisted of rats that participated in swimming activities of moderate intensity for forty minutes, but also received 0.05 milliliters of lemon peel essential oil every hour for the preceding hour before the rats participated in swimming activities. The average TAC level in the RDF group (pre-test 320.34 ± 44.05 µmol; post-test 353.01 ± 70.22 µmol) and average CRP level (pre-test 0.54 ± 0.11 ng/ml; post-test 0.49 ± 0.04 ng/ml). The average TAC level in the RE groups (pre-test 338.15 ± 29.14 µmol; post-test 356.48 ± 44.34 µmol) and average CRP level (pre-test 0.56 ± 0.04 ng/ml; post-test 0.53 ± 0.09 ng/ml). There were no significantly increased TAC (p>0.05) and decreased CRP (p>0.05) after the exercise test compared to before. There were no substantial differences between the two groups (p>0.05).
