Lactic acid is actually a fuel, not a caustic waste product. Muscles make it deliberately, producing it from glucose, and they burn it to obtain energy. The reason trained athletes can perform so hard and so long is because their intense training causes their muscles to adapt so they more readily and efficiently absorb lactic acid."
Wow! I did not even know that the lactic acid was used as fuel. I will read the article that you provided. This eating of Oats in a snack pack is interesting. I wonder if eating a food bar would have the same effect.
