dc.description.abstract During short term exercise, lactic acid is formed as a byproduct of glycolysis. It forms from pyruvate when oxygen is not present in the muscles. Lactic acid then diffuses from the muscles into the blood and is broken down into lactate and hydrogen ions. This excess of hydrogen ions causes the blood pH to lower, unless it is buffered by the body. Many substances such as sodium bicarbonate, superoxygenated water, and caffeine have been tested as buffers, but none has been found to be both safe and effective. A new product, Cytomax performance drink claims to be a buffer. en_US
