Apply up to 2 hours before your workout, giving you plenty of time to apply it in your gearing up routine.

One use supports a multi-hour workout. The harder and longer you go, the more bicarbonate your body will use. If convenient, reapply during an all day event. If not, your muscles should feel fresher in the later stages of your event by neutralizing acid in the hours before.

Yes, reapplying PR Lotion after a workout may further reduce soreness in the days following a workout.


The effect of PR Lotion is proportional to the amount applied so athletes often apply twice 30 minutes apart before a long event and reapply after for added recovery.

This is not only for race day and competitions. Build PR Lotion into your pre-workout routine to improve recovery time between workouts. Studies show that regular use of sodium bicarbonate in training may lead to increased mitochondrial mass and improved muscle contraction which may allow you to work your muscles harder. In a study where sodium bicarbonate was used for eight weeks in high-intensity training, lactate threshold and performance improved significantly over the control group.


Yes, children over 2 years of age may use PR Lotion.

PR Lotion is well tolerated. Do not use if you are allergic to any ingredient listed on the label.

PR Lotion contains safe ingredients in accepted levels. No side effects have been linked to regular use of bicarbonate and no serious adverse events have been reported from PR Lotion.

PR Lotion and all of its ingredients are made in the USA.

During strenuous exercise, your body produces lactate and acid, together known as lactic acid. Your body neutralizes acid with its own naturally occurring bicarbonate until acid is produced faster than your body can clear it. Then, acid builds up causing painful muscle burn and inhibiting performance.

That's the beauty of PR Lotion- take the gain with no pain. Additional bicarbonate delivered directly to your muscles helps you get more from every workout and recover faster.

Athletes regularly report that PR Lotion reduces cramping. However, PR Lotion has not been clinically studied on muscle cramps and does not claim to prevent cramps.
