PROVEN SUPPLEMENTS THAT PREVENT LACTIC ACID BUILD UP
A non-essential amino acid that is a precursor to the production of a naturally occurring molecule called carnosine. Carnosine is responsible for neutralizing lactic acid and improving high-intensity workouts because of its ability to buffer the lactic acid built up in the muscles. Buffering the lactic acid has been shown to improve your time to exhaustion. It has also been shown to increases total antioxidant capacity when taken post-workout. Beta-alanine is present in food but not sustainable as your primary source for an athlete. Found most abundantly in beef, you get a whopping .0018 grams of beta-alanine per gram of beef. Blatantly put, you would have to eat about 5 pounds of red meat to get close to 4 grams of beta-alanine. NF Sports offers 3.2 grams of beta-alanine sourced from CarnoSyn®, the leading manufacturer of a clean, natural, and bio-available source of beta-alanine.
A critical mineral that has many critical roles in the human body. It is required for energy production, maintaining structural bones, maintaining a normal heart beat, and maintaining normal blood pressure. And for high-intensity athletes who train beyond there limits, magnesium has been shown to decrease blood lactate levels and significantly decreased lactate production, while increasing lactate clearance in the muscle during exercise. Supplementing magnesium 30 minutes before a workout will ensure it's readily available for combating lactic acid. And hey, it increases blood glucose levels during a workout. That's a win-win! Supplementing your daily dose of magnesium is only essential for exercise performance because magnesium is abundant in food. Nature's Answer offers a natural and bio-available source of magnesium from a clean region of the world. And you can break a readily available 500mg into two servings. Here is a list of food sources with magnesium that the National Institute of Health's published.
