To explore the influence and mechanism of polysaccharides from Scrophularia radix, the dry root of Scrophularia ningpoensis Hemsl on the antioxidant capacity of some tissues in exercising mice, mice were orally given different doses of polysaccharides from Scrophularia radix or normal saline 2 hours before swimming exercise for 3 consecutive weeks. The results showed that polysaccharides from Scrophularia radix had enhancing effect on the activities of antioxidant enzymes in mice with exercise-induced fatigue and could inhibit lipid peroxidation in mouse tissues to a certain extent.

Key words: Scrophularia radix polysaccharides, exercise mice, anti-oxidation
