Transcutaneous delivery of Sodium Bicarbonate Increases Intramuscular PH

The data clearly shows significant increases in pH in both the muscle and the blood, which indicates PR Lotion to be an effective way to increase both local and systemic pH. Increased buffering capacity has been shown to support both higher intensity exercise and longer sustained efforts. The increase in sodium content may also help improve fluid retention and muscle performance during exercise reducing potential for muscle cramping.
