Background and Aim: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common liver disease in the world. The most important treatment is lifestyle modification and exercise. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of vitamin E supplementation and aerobic training on non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD).
Material and Method: In this quasi-experimental study, 24 NASH patients were randomly selected and divided into three groups. The study groups consisted of aerobic training; aerobic training with vitamin E supplementation and the third group had only vitamin E supplementation. Aerobic exercises included four weeks of increasing aerobic activity, including running on treadmill with an increase in intensity for one hour with 60-70% of maximum heart rate, which performed four sessions in a week. Vitamin E Supplementation was consumed 400 mg / day for four weeks. Statistical data analysis was done by Shapirovailk test for data normalization, dependent T-test for intra-group comparison and one-way variance analysis for inter-group comparison and Bonferroni follow-up.
Results: The results showed that ALT index decreased significantly in aerobic training group   (P=0.001), aerobic training with vitamin E (P=0.01) and only vitamin E supplementation (P=0.001). Also, the AST index decreased significantly in all groups (P<0.05) in the pre-test and post-test stages, but ALP levels were not significant in any of the groups (P>0.05). There was no significant difference between the groups in the enzyme indices (P>0.05).
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, it can be said that consumption of vitamin E supplementation with aerobic activity is likely to improve patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver.
