Creatine provides energy during the initial phases of intense activity
During the ATP-PC system, creatine phosphate is broken down by the enzyme, creatine kinase to create energy very quickly.
However, the body has limited stores of creatine phosphate and therefore supplies rapidly deplete, reducing our ability to create energy using creatine. This results in fatigue and a decrease in exercise intensity
Anaerobic exercise results in the formation of by-products including lactic acid and hydrogen ions
increase the acidity within the muscles, causing pain and fatigue
Sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline, which can buffer the impact of lactic acid and hydrogen ions, allowing the performer to work for longer at higher intensities without fatigue.
