Abstract: It is known that well balanced exercise slows down the aging process. The aim of the study was to determine the influence of exercise on endothelial stability related to the anti-aging process. Male healthy subjects (n=58) were submitted to the study: I – physically active subjects (n=21); II – previous physically active subjects (n=14) and III – sedentary subjects (n=23). Endothelial function was examined by following methods: nitric oxide - NO (Oxis, USA); free radicals - FR (Diacron, Italy); and superoxide dismutase in plasma and in red blood cells - SOD (Randox, G. Britain). Statistical significance for increased NO was found in I and II group compared to III group (p<0.01). FR was found decreased in I group (p<0.05) compared to other two groups. Plasma SOD was found decreased in III group (p<0.05). Exercise may increase NO production due to the muscles oxygen demand and may slow down the aging process.
