During an exercise bout, aerobic energy comes from oxidative phosphorylation. When the intensity exceeds the body’s ability to utilize oxygen, the body switches over to anaerobic sources for energy production. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is now formed through the breakdown of phosphocreatine to replenish ATP and the conversion of pyruvate to lactate following the breakdown of glycogen and glucose. The lactate decreases the pH level intramuscularly causing an environment that is not optimal for exercise and leads to exhaustion and decreased performance. Microhydrin, a supplement developed to release reduced hydrogen or hydride ions (H-) into the blood stream acting as an hydrogen ion trap. This is possible through Microhydrin’s active ingredient, Silica Hydride. The few studies that have been done on this particular supplement required an ingestion of four pills daily.
