Surgery is known to be associated with stress response affecting in a negative way the clinical outcome and patient experience. The stress response includes both sympathetic nervous system activation and systemic inflammatory response. The pituitary- sympathetic one leads to a number of metabolic changes as hyperglycemia, nitrogen loss and lipolysis on the other hand the systemic inflammatory response aggravates the perioperative metabolic changes. One of components of ERAS is preoperative carbohydrate load. Oral carbohydrate was associated with attenuation of the postoperative metabolic stress response. Nitrate rich drinks before exercises have a promising impact due to improving blood flow, mitochondrial efficiency, glucose uptake and the sarcoplasmic calcium handling all of which maximize resistance to fatigue and improved exercise performance.
