Hence, the study aimed to study The research included that the individuals in the research sample take doses of beta-carotene Forest 1.5 mg, 500 IU, in doses specified by the nutritionist for the purpose of stimulating the enzymes responsible for oxidizing electrolytes and free radicals in the blood of advanced boxers at the Hindiyah Sports Club.

GOT-CAT enzyme, as well as endurance to offensive performance (straight, side, and upward punches (gouging)).
