PR Lotion is the first and only product proven to effectively deliver bicarbonate directly into the muscle and blood through the skin.
Our proprietary, groundbreaking delivery technology allows the bicarbonate to be delivered where it is needed most while simultaneously bypassing the stomach where gastrointestinal side effects occur.
All of this innovation has been conveniently deployed in a lotion you can simply apply before and after workouts.
While there are multiple contributors to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), alkalinization prevents one of them. Intense exercise produces free radicals that cause damage and inflammation in muscle tissue that leads to pain and soreness. Recent evidence shows that alkalinization with sodium bicarbonate reduces free radical release from mitochondria, thus reducing muscle soreness in the days after intense efforts.
Every batch of PR Lotion is tested for banned substances under the Informed-Choice and Informed-Sport programs by LGC Group at an accredited lab to provide the highest level of assurance that it is safe for athletes to use and permitted in sport.
Bicarbonate is produced by the pancreas and is the body’s natural buffer for acid. Similar to nutrition hydration and electrolytes, supplementing the body’s bicarbonate levels is a natural improvement to a piece of the human performance puzzle. Elite athletes have ingested bicarbonate since the 70s, but the intensity of the gastrointestinal side effects in 37-50% of subjects from putting baking soda into stomach acid made it impractical for all but the most committed to use. The challenge has always been finding a solution to topically deliver more to our muscles in a safe, quick, and efficient way. This technology did not exist until now.
Yes, every batch of PR Lotion is tested for banned substances by Informed-Choice for athletes' reassurance. PR Lotion is WADA compliant.
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.
