Context: The lifestyle of individuals is changing rapidly in today’s world and physical fitness is an essential requirement to keep oneself fit and healthy. Nutritional supplements could improve physical fitness by modulating energy metabolism, oxidative processes, and perceived fatigue. Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of HHOM-051608, which is a first-of-its-kind whey protein supplement, packed with naturally rich essential amino acids and herbal ingredients to improve the exercise performance, energy metabolism, and physical endurance. Setting and study design: Thirty-two male Wistar rats were divided into four groups of eight each. Group 1 served as sedentary control; group 2 was sedentary rats treated with HHOM-051608 (2 g/kg b.w.); group 3 was exercise training control, and group 4 was exercise training rat treated with HHOM-051608 (2g/kg b.w.). Methods: The exercise training rats were trained on a motorized rat treadmill at a constant speed for 8 weeks. After 8 weeks, all animals were subjected to a grip strength test followed by a treadmill endurance test. Statistical analysis: The results were statistically analyzed by one-way analysis of variance followed by Tukey comparison test, using Prism GraphPad 6.07 (GraphPad Software Inc, San Diego, CA, USA). A P value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: HHOM-051608 supplemented animals showed a significant increase in grip strength and run time on the treadmill. Conclusion: HHOM-051608 has improved the exercise performance, muscle strength, and muscle glycogen. Thus can be recommended to enhance exercise performance, build muscle mass and decrease muscle soreness.
