What is the difference between doxycycline hyclate and Doxycycline and lactic acid Bacillus? Which is better for acne?

What is the difference between doxycycline hyclate and Doxycycline and lactic acid Bacillus? Which is better for acne?

Big picture: Never use an antibiotic for acne without some non-antibiotic topical therapy as well. Doxycycline plus toipcal benzoyl peroxide or a retinoic acid derivative is more likely than not to clear moderate acne. The bacteria are added for glamor and will probably not help. Remember not to take a tetracycline with milk, iron, or calcium. ...Read more

Does low pH levels causes more lactic acid build up during practice?

Does low pH levels causes more lactic acid build up during practice?

Other way around: Lactic acid build up can cause a low ph in the blood. Lactic acid builds up when you switch to anaerobic metabolism when your muscles (usually) run out of fuel. It typically causes burning in your muscles. Staying well fueled during prolonged exercise can help prevent Lactic Acid build up. ...Read more

How can I increase lactic acid tolerance for lacrosse and mile time?

How can I increase lactic acid tolerance for lacrosse and mile time?

Interval training: During training you need to maintain a constant aerobic level with intermittent high intensity bursts. After these bursts do not stop or slow down but go back to an aerobic level so that your body can adapt to metabolizing lactic acid while maintaining the aerobic capacity. Example: if you run 6 miles at an aerobic pace of 8-9 min/mile, do 30 second intervals at 6 min/mile but dont slow to 10 min/ ...Read more

I have a question regarding lactic acid buildup in muscles?

It goes away: They say "pain is just weakness leaving the body". But it's really lactic acidosis building up in the muscles. This occurs as part of the normal metabolism of glucose by your muscle in the absence of oxygen (called anaerobic metabolism). The Lactic Acid clears from the muscles (and your body) with rest, plenty of fluids and appropriate nutrition. ...Read more

How athlete muscle cells get adapted day after day to lactic acid buildup ???

Lactic acid: This is the by product of anaerobic metabolism. Athlete's train very rigorously to both adapt to this and condition so that they get to anaerobic glycolysis later in their sport. Everyone has a different tolerance to the pain that comes from Lactic Acid as well as the level at which it occurs ( based on training). The only thing you can do is to do your best in your sport . ...Read more
