Bicarb neutralizes acid created by your muscles as a by-product when you work at your limit.
When you hold your max for too long, acid builds up, causing your muscles to burn and disrupting muscle contraction.
Our bodies naturally produce bicarb, which is high pH, to neutralize acidity in a common acid-base reaction. PR Lotion gives your body more bicarb to clear more acid, giving you the ability to push yourself harder for longer.
Bicarb reduces chemical stress in your muscles which helps prevent soreness.
Alkalinization prevents one of multiple causes of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Intense exercise produces free radicals that cause muscle damage and inflammation which leads to soreness. Alkalinization with bicarb reduces free radical release, thus reducing muscle soreness in the days after intense efforts.
