The Benefits of Bicarb and Beetroot

Recent breakthroughs in sports nutrition have enabled the development of supplements with the potential to aid in PBs. However, it is essential to understand how to use these supplements correctly to avoid pitfalls that can derail performance.



Bicarbonate of soda has been used by athletes for decades thanks to its ability to neutralise lactic acid. However, until recently, the side effect was typically mild-severe gastro-intestinal issues. Following years of pioneering research and development, Maurten have found a solution to these issues in their Bicarb System.

Dr. Joshua Rowe will explore who is the ideal candidate for the Maurten Bicarb System, the optimal timing for its use in both training and competition, and the rationale behind its application. Furthermore, Josh will share insights into both internal and external data, illustrating the system’s impact and efficacy in enhancing athletic performance.
