Change in the oxygen uptake, RER and fat oxidation level during a 1-h exercise period. CON: distilled water with training, SP: silk peptide-treated with training. A, the change in oxygen uptake over a 1-h period; B, the change in RER over a 1-h period; C, the change in fat oxidation over a 1-h period; D, the sum of the fat oxidation over a 1-h period; E, fat oxidation during the 20-min period. Values are presented as means ± standard deviations (n = 12). † vs. CON P < 0.077; * vs. CON, P < 0.05.
