WHY SODIUM BICARBONATE? [ + ]
When you push your body to its limits, your muscles create acid as a by-product. This acid buildup produces a burning sensation that can stop your workout if you hold your max for too long. Beyond the burn, acid buildup lowers your muscle pH and disrupts muscle firing and contraction, which can leave you suffering even more. Sodium bicarbonate alkalizes the blood and muscle, neutralizing acid buildup and making it easier to maintain your performance.
HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO MUSCLE SORENESS? [ + ]
While there are multiple contributors to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), alkalinization prevents one of them. Intense exercise produces free radicals that cause damage and inflammation in muscle tissue that leads to pain and soreness. Recent evidence shows that alkalinization with sodium bicarbonate reduces free radical release from mitochondria, thus reducing muscle soreness in the days after intense efforts.
WHY HAVEN’T I HEARD OF BICARB UNTIL NOW? [ + ]
Bicarbonate is produced by the pancreas and is the body’s natural buffer for acid. Similar to nutrition hydration and electrolytes, supplementing the body’s bicarbonate levels is a natural improvement to a piece of the human performance puzzle. Elite athletes have ingested bicarbonate since the 70s, but the intensity of the gastrointestinal side effects in 37-50% of subjects from putting baking soda into stomach acid made it impractical for all but the most committed to use. The challenge has always been finding a solution to topically deliver more to our muscles in a safe, quick, and efficient way. This technology did not exist until now.
CLINICAL STUDY DEEP DIVE [ + ]
Proven beyond claims
We went beyond simply leveraging clinically proven ingredients and conducted clinical trials to validate that PR Lotion really works. The peer reviewed and published study proved that when applied pre-workout, PR Lotion helped athletes train harder, go longer and recover faster.

Who:

Dr. Mark Kern, Ph.D, R.D

Location:

San Diego State University’s Exercise & Nutritional Sciences Department

PARTICIPANTS:

20 Elite cyclists with category 1-3 professional cycling licenses

DESIGN:

Institutional review board (IRB)-approved, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover study

PUBLISHED:

Peer reviewed. Presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference (ACSM) in May of 2018. Abstract published in one of the leading journals, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (MSSE).

TEST:

Each test subject performed two sets of exercises on PR Lotion and two on control. In visits 1 and 2, subjects performed a series of high-intensity exercises, including a ramp test with workload increased every 3 minutes, a 30-second sprint at maximum effort, and a 5-minute time trial. In visits 3 and 4, subjects rode a 1-hour time trial of maximum work over duration.

Result #1: Train Harder

CLINICALLY PROVEN TO INCREASE
LACTATE LEVELS BY 11%
PR LOTION BUFFERED THE MUSCLE & INCREASED LACTATE LEVELS WHEN COMPARED TO THE CONTROL
Blood lactate was 11% higher for subjects using PR Lotion when compared to control by the end of the series of high intensity tests. Increased lactate levels deliver more fuel to the muscles during anaerobic workouts, while simultaneously reducing acid build-up to help athletes perform better.

Result #2: Go Longer

CLINICALLY PROVEN TO EXTEND
INTERVALS COMPLETED BY 25%
AT THE SAME WORKLOAD, ATHLETES HAD A LOWER HEART RATE WITH PR LOTION
Reduced acidosis and delivered a lower heart rate and rate of perceived exertion under the same training loads. Heart rate was 3 beats per minute (1.6%) lower versus control immediately after a 5-minute time trial of short, intense effort (p=0.031). The workload in the time trial was consistent across PR Lotion and control at 98 kJ. Heart rate was 3.1% lower and rate of perceived exertion was 2.6% lower measured 15 minutes into a 1-hour time trial (p=0.004, p=0.054).

Result #3: Recover Faster

CLINICALLY PROVEN TO REDUCE DELAYED
ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS BY 53%
PR LOTION REDUCES DOMS FOR 24-48 HOURS POST-EXERCISE
Over the course of two days, following a series of short and intense efforts, subjects using PR lotion experienced a 53.5% reduction in DOMS versus a continued rise in pain of 34.3% with control (p=0.007).
