WHEN YOU PUSH YOUR BODY TO ITS LIMITS,
YOUR MUSCLES CREATE ACID AS A BY-PRODUCT.
As a result, the acid buildup produces a burning sensation that often brings your workout to a halt when you attempt to hold your max for too long. Beyond the burn, acid buildup lowers your muscle pH and disrupts muscle firing and contraction, which can leave you suffering. Bicarbonate alkalizes the blood and muscle, neutralizing acid buildup and making it an easier to maintain your performance.
