KRUGER, Renata Lopes; FARINHA, Juliano Boufleur; TEIXEIRA, Bruno Costa  and  REISCHAK-OLIVEIRA, Alvaro. Oxidative stress and endothelial function: effects of physical exercise on results of postprandial lipemia. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.4, pp.328-340. ISSN 1677-5449.

It is extremely important for public health to identify strategies that can prevent development of atherosclerosis. There are several modifiable metabolic risks that can induce onset of this disease, but the most investigated of these risk is increased postprandial lipemia after a high fat meal because this factor can increase oxidative damage and endothelial dysfunction. Physical exercise is indicated for prevention of development of these risk factors. The objective of this study was to search the literature for published studies investigating the acute and subacute effects on oxidative stress and endothelial function of physical exercise associated with postprandial lipemia and compare their results. Articles published up to February 2015 in Portuguese, Spanish or English were included. After an extensive review, it was concluded that the acute and subacute effects of physical could be capable of attenuating parameters of cardiovascular risk after consumption of a high fat meal.

Keywords : physical exercise; postprandial lipemia; oxidative stress; endothelial function.
