Taking Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide to Buffer Lactic Acid
Before my strength training workouts, I should take some baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixed in water, to buffer lactic acid, right?
1. Lemon water is alkalizing to the body too, correct? Even though lemon has acidic pH, it alkalizes the body once ingested, right?
2. So before my workouts for the BEST WAY to buffer lactic acid in order to keep working out hard, you would reccommend the baking soda and h2o2 in water before and during my workout, right? Or would just one of the ingredients in water be better?
and also 500 mg Vit. C sodium ascorbate if available.
Ted, you're the best!
To buffer, baking soda, or baking soda and peroxide has same buffering while the latter has more oxygen content. For lemon to work best, add baking soda more to neutralize the citric acid in lemon AND lactic acid. As far as lemon being alkaline has to do with citric acid reacts with excess calcium in your blood to get calcium citrate. So if you have excess calcium to do that it is alkalizing but adding baking soda will ensure it is always alkaline.
