ODESSA NATIONAL MEDICAL UNIVERSITY, ODESSA, UKRAINE
According to the criteria of well-being, activity, and mood, one of the leading subjective indicators that affect the quality of life is the self-assessment of individual psychological state. The changes in these indicators under the influence of an aqueous suspension of living unicellular alga chlorella are interesting for researching. The study was carried out in two stages. At the first stage, 30 clinically healthy people (41,77±10,77 y.o.) were examined, divided into groups depending on the characteristics of physical activity; at the second stage - 22 patients with pathology of the cardiovascular system (54,59±6,69 y.o.), divided into groups depending on the use of an aqueous suspension of live chlorella during a complex program of physical rehabilitation. At the first stage, 73,3 % of the participants noted an improvement in well-being; 46,7% - an increase in overall tone, general working capacity and sleep quality, a decrease in fatigue and duration of sleep; 30% noted an improvement in the gastrointestinal tract; 93,3 % of the persons noted the formation of a regular drinking regimen. The most significant changes in the groups were pointed out on the scale of well-being (p<0,05), the smallest - on the scale of mood (p>0,05), in turn, the dynamics of activity had the most considerable changes in the group of people who didn`t have regular or sufficient physical activity (p<0,01). At the same time, there were no significant changes in people involved in power sports (p>0,05). At the second stage a significant difference in the dynamics of well-being (p<0,05) was revealed in patients with cardiovascular system pathology who used an aqueous suspension of live chlorella, but the absence of a significant difference in the dynamics of activity and mood in two groups (p>0,05)..
