Lactat Buffer is a slightly flavoured beverage powder with sodium citrate and bicarbonate for young active ambitious athletes which are practising very intensive sport activities, so-called anaerobic lactic.
During high intensity performances, the accumulation of lactate is often limiting the performance. As a consequence, it comes to a short term drop of the pH value of the blood.
Lactat Buffer is a competition supplement for ambitious athletes of all disciplines, in which lactate rises are performance-limiting such as rowing, sprint disciplines, skiing, swimming, etc.
Registered in Switzerland as a new type of dietary supplements for athletes: BAG N Nr. 100730.
– Delaying hyperacidity of muscles
– Well tolerated bicarbonates and sodium citrate due to intake several days before the competition days
– Slightly flavoured
Suitable for swimmers, sprinters, for rowing, for martial arts like judo, for skiing, cross-country skiing, bobsleigh, speed climbing, etc…
As acute loading 2-1 hour before competition according to intake recommendations.
Scientific studies showed that a soda-loading over several days has the exact same efficiency. In this case the ingestion should start 5-6 days before the competition day according to intake recommendations on the box. The positive effects on performance are proved until up to 24 hours after intake.
Changes in urin pH can be expected due to the bicarbonate supplementation. If an athlete gets called up for a doping test, it can take several hours until the urine pH value raises up again to an acceptable value for the control board.
Lactat Buffer do not contain any active doping substances and can also be used by elite athletes.
Warnings according to the approval conditions of the Federal Office of Public Health
People with restricted kidney function or with a high blood pressure and who are salt-sensitive should not use Lactat Buffer. Sodium-bicarbonate and sodium-citrate should not be taken together with milk, it could cause a milk-alkali-syndrome with raised blood-calcium values and may lead to calcium deposits in kidneys.
