Have you ever had a burning sensation in your muscles during intense exercise? This is a signal that your body is being deprived of oxygen - and lactic acid is being created. When your body produces lactic acid, it splits into two ions; lactate ions (lactate) and hydrogen ions (H+) . H+ is the acid in lactic acid. Intramuscular Acidosis – The pH (acid) is not due to lactate but rather the production of H+ which is part of the process of energy released from the breakdown of glucose. As H+ are released, intramuscular pH goes acid leading to fatigue and creates the burning feeling in your muscles during intense exercise.
What exactly is this elusive VO2 Max, why is it important to know, how is it measured, and how can you improve your VO2 Max? VO2 Max is the maximum amount of oxygen you can consume that goes to the working muscles. In short, we need oxygen to survive and perform daily living activities, not just during exercise. If we want to use oxygen more efficiently by increasing VO2 Max, activities such as nutrition, movement, and breathing all need to be taken into consideration for improvement. We all want to breath better and stronger!
The same process that causes a car to rust, plays a similar corrosive role in our bodies. It is called oxidation. Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between free radical production vs antioxidants. Antioxidants constantly fight to neutralize free radicals, thereby improving cell function. Oxidative stress can damage cells and contribute to the aging process. Oxidative stress may also play a role in several diseases such as cancer, Alzheimers, and diabetes. The goal should be to flood your body with powerful antioxidants and ward off the effects of free radical damage in the body.

Over the years we have found that some people have a very acidic diet and their diet may interfere with the dissolution of the product in the small intestine. On the other hand, one of our athletes drinks 12 cups of coffee per day and lives on Xendurance with great results! Everyone is different but the few that have had issues cleared up the dissolution problem by limiting acidic drinks, red meat and coffee when taking Extreme Endurance. We now encourage people to take their caffeine within an hour prior or after taking their tablets just as a precaution.
You don’t cycle with Xendurance Lactic Acid Buffer. You take it consistently, like a multivitamin; for training, performance and for better body pH and alkalinity. 3
