ABSTRACT

This study aimed to investigate the effect of combined oral consumption of curcumin and piperine on muscle damage in futsal players after 2 consecutive matches. To achieve this, a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled design was used, where 14 days of supplementation of curcumin and piperine, along with a placebo, was administered. A total of 16 amateur futsal players were divided into 2 groups, namely experimental and placebo. Parameters such as blood creatine kinase (CK), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) concentration were assessed at specific time points, including 7 days before the first match, immediately before the first match, 24 h after the first match, 24 h after the second match, 48 h after the second match, and 72 h after the second match. The results showed a significant difference (p < 0.01) in the CK, as well as AST (p < 0.01) and ALT (p < 0.01) values between the CUR and PLA groups 24 h after the second match. Furthermore, 72 h after the second match, the CUR group had a lower CK value compared to PLA (p<0.05). Therefore, the supplementation of 200 mg curcumin and 10 mg piperine a day was considered effective in reducing muscle damage and accelerating the recovery of futsal players following 2 consecutive matches.
