lactic acid

The “turbo” source of the human being, What is it?

Previously, have you heard that we have a source of energy within our body? And that this allows us to give that “extra” that we need by putting ourselves in a situation where we require more energy? This is called lactic acid and it is always there for when our body needs it!


What does it consist of?

pound that is part of carboxylic acids. It is called a chemical compound because it is made up of at least two elements that are part of the periodic table. When a human being performs intense physical activity, the metabolism causes lactic acid to be released in the muscles, giving them that extra boost of energy. Lactic acid responds when there is not enough oxygen in the blood for energy. It should be taken into account that when an intense exercise is carried out, the person who is doing it can generate more lactic acid.


For what is this?

The person in particular is not in shape, and his metabolism is not prepared to be eliminating this acid, therefore it accumulates it. This causes two things to happen:

-Lack of energy and fatigue.
-Burning in muscles For this reason, it is recommended that you start with a light daily routine, which does not require a lot of strength to gain condition first. Thus we will accustom the body to create lactic acid but also to eliminate it.


Another way to eliminate excess lactic acid from our body is…

– Drink a glass of water with lemon, this will help us to alkalize our body.
– If necessary, you could take a little baking soda dissolved in
– Eat foods rich in water, such as cucumber or watermelon and rich in B complex vitamins.
– Add more avocado to salad, tomato, orange, sunflower seeds and flax, while your body takes condition and begins to eliminate the excess by itself alone.
– Magnesium is also important, you should eat Swiss chard, spinach, beans, seaweed and legumes.
– Unsaturated fatty acids from oily fish such as salmon and tuna.
– Also, consider more fruits, also almonds and nuts.
– Consume all olive oil and drink a considered amount of water while doing any physical activity.

Although it is a benefit, it can also be something contradictory in our body.

What else can lactic acid do for us?

As I mentioned earlier, lactic acid is found naturally in the human body, but we can also find it in the fermentation of milk, apples and sugar cane. Cosmetically speaking, it belongs to the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) family, it is an acid that is soluble in water and one of its main functions is to exfoliate dead cells, hydrate and moisturize at cellular level. Because of its size, it does not easily penetrate the skin, so its effects are superficial when applied topically, which makes it ideal for sensitive skin. Another of its functions as a topical, is to produce collagen, thus giving more elasticity to the skin which makes wrinkles disappear and minimizes pores. It also increases ceramides, which keep the skin barrier protected, and retain water in the skin.


The ways in which we should use lactic acid on the skin

If your skin is dry to combine, or sensitive, the best way to use this product is in low to progressive concentrations, once a week and at night, because if it enters contact with the sun can stain the skin. Sure, it is always recommended that you see him with a specialist. Another way to use it as a topical is by adding it to some cream that you already have among your things, it is not very strong and would not alter the formulation of the products. You can also add it to some lotion or flower water, don’t worry, they don’t harm you.

But … where do I find it?

Fortunately, you can find this acid almost anywhere and at an extremely affordable price! Possibly 1 kilogram has a cost of 8 dollars.

An extra tip …

Avoid mixing lactic acid with benzoyl peroxide, retinol, vitamin C and other AHAs, as you can have a reaction of over-exfoliating your skin and leaving it more sensitive than it is (if you have that problem), and cause irritations.
