The purpose of this study was to examine the houttuynia cordata drink's fatigue-relieving effect on athletes and general population who were participating sports activities frequently, in order to inquire into the possibility of developing it as a sports drink. Study subjects were sampled from a high school in Seongnam City and they were 40 20 soccer players and 20 general students. Study findings are as follows: First, as for physical fatigue, there was a significant interactional effect for group (soccer players and general students) and test (before and after taking the houttuynia cordata drink). Before taking the houttuynia cordata drink, the athletic group felt more physical fatigue than the non-athletic group. But the degree of physical fatigue after taking the drink was higher for the non-athletic group than for the athletic group. Second, as for mental fatigue, there was no interactional effect for group (soccer players and general students). But there was a significant effect for test (before and after taking the houttuynia cordata drink). Third, as for neur-sensational strain, there was no interactional effect for group (soccer players and general students) and test (before and after taking the houttuynia cordata drink). But there was a significant difference before and after taking the houttuynia cordata drink.
