Baking Soda: The Secret Performance Supplement
Baking soda is not something we normally associate with exercise. Most people would think of laundry detergent or cleaning products, however it does have other uses in terms of helping with fitness and fatigue.
Over at Breaking Muscle, there is a great article explaining the science behind it. Although baking soda isn’t completely new to the supplement market, it’s beginning to make a return after first appearing in the 1970’s. It’s also quite cheap compared to the mainstream supplements but it does carry some unwanted side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting and bloating if too much is consumed. The post gives clear instructions on how much you should be taking:
The normal recommendation is that you need one liter of water when ingesting 0.3 grams per kilogram of body mass. The water will help with absorption and decrease your chances of GI distress. Baking soda does not linger around the body, so it’s important to take it and work out about an hour or so later. Don’t take it and then train five hours later. The benefit of being able to push through that last bit of a workout and the decreased recovery time may be worth it for you. Just take a trip to your primary care manager first to clear yourself to introduce this supplementation into your life.
There is some scientific jargon to get your head around but it’s all broken down into meaningful chunks. So head over to the article now and learn about this exciting hidden supplement before your mates beat you to it.
