Objective: The purpose of this paper is to study the effects of supplemented Shengmai San on the expression of heat shock protein 72 (HSP72) and blood biochemistry in peripheral blood of flying-saucer athletes before and after high temperature training, so as to provide experimental basis for enhancing thermal endurance and preventing heat disease of flying-saucer athletes with anti-heat disease drugs. Methods: 24 flying-saucer athletes from Zhejiang province were selected and divided into two groups, including control group and traditional Chinese medicine group with 12 people in each group. Among them, those who did not drink supplemented Shengmai San were in the control group, while those who drank it were in the traditional Chinese medicine group. During summer training, high temperature training task was carried out for 2 weeks. Flying-saucer athletes in traditional Chinese medicine group were given supplemented Shengmai San before training every morning and afternoon. Peripheral venous blood of each group was extracted before experiment and 2 weeks later and lymphocyte HSP72 content, blood routine and biochemical indexes were determined respectively. Results: Before the experiment, there were no abnormal phenomenon blood routine, biochemical test value and HSP72 expression in the control group and the traditional Chinese medicine group. After comparison, there was no significant difference (P>0.05). After the high temperature training, the expression of HSP72 in the Chinese medicine group was significantly higher than that before the training and control group (P<0.05). There were significant differences in white blood cell count before and after the experiment (P<0.05). Conclusion: Taking supplemented Shengmai San can significantly increase expression of HSP72 in up-regulation of flying saucer athletes after thermal stimulation, thus enhancing thermal tolerance and preventing thermal diseases.
