    Ep. 57: Glycolysis, Lactate, and pH balance (Oxygenation, Swelling, and pH Balance Part 2)

    Ep. 57: Glycolysis, Lactate, and pH balance (Oxygenation, Swelling, and pH Balance Part 2)

    In this episode we discuss:

    Why lactate is not a harmless byproduct of glycolysis


    How lactate drives swelling and prevents proper mineral balance, oxygenation, and pH balance


    Misconceptions around pH balance and the idea that alkalinity is healthy


    Why we want our cells to be acidic rather than alkaline

    What we can do to maintain proper pH balance throughout our bodies

Highly recommend!

This podcast is an amazing resource for health and fitness knowledge!
Note to future listeners: listen to the episodes in order. The beginning episodes lay a foundation and the later episodes build on top of the foundation.

Best in the bioenergetic world.

In my opinion this is the best podcast in the bioenergetic realm. Lots of great information and insights that I haven’t seen/heard other places. Jay and Mike have a very practical and balanced approach to health, and clearly have a lot of experience (both in their own journey and in working with others). Highly recommended!
