today. We look at how daily citrus fruit consumption during athletic training May reduce muscle fatigue as evidenced by lower blood lactate concentration, the
same lactic acid that makes yogurt Tangy is the same lactic acid builds up in our muscles when we exercise strenuously. Instead of bacteria from entering the sugar and milk to make energy for themselves are muscles for men. Sugar, in our diet, to produce energy to contract. If like when we're sprinting blackduck acid, builds up in our muscles faster than it can be removed. We can end up with a burning sensation in our muscles. Forcing us to stop. Now. If we train, we can increase the number of blood vessels in our muscles and clear out the lactate faster. For example, you take some overweight sedentary women and start them on an aerobic. Training program of running walking at the end of three months, there lactate levels, during exercises, decrease 17%. But those on the same program, who drank two cups of orange juice a day, decrease the levels 27%, They did the same exercise program, but the Citrus group experienced a significant decrease in blood lactate concentration, signifying Improvement in physical performance with less muscle fatigue. I don't recommend drinking juice because as you're losing all that wonderful fiber, that slows the rate of fruit sugar absorption into our system. So the whole fruit is nearly always better than fruit juice. Now, this is not to say OJ isn't better than Coke.

His spirited may actually help lower our digestion of fats, but once you get up to three cups a day of You can really start bumping up your triglycerides.
