The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes of serum immunoblobulin and DHEAs when 8 weeks of combined exercise and peony intake have been held to women in their 40s and 50s. 15 participants were chosen, divided into three groups, and they had undergone combined exercise with the level of 1RM 60~70%, HRmax 60~70%, three times a week for 60 minutes each. For the proper intake, 6g of peony were warmed in a double boiler with water 107ml, and the crude liquid was ingested 100ml each by the participants, everyday before breakfast, for 8 weeks. The following conclusions were obtained through these objectives and procedures. First, the amount of immunoglobulin has increased in two groups, the 8-week combined exercise group and the group which undergone both the peony intake and the combined exercise, but did not show the significant difference(p>.05). Second, the results of DHEAs showed an increas in two groups, the 8-week combined exercise group and the group which undergone both the peony intake and the combined exercise, but did not show the significant difference(p>.05). Therefore, the consumption of peony and complex exercise in this study did not positively affect the immune function and dementia prevention.
