Polylactate (PL), a semi-soluble amino acid/lactate salt, is a newly developed carbohydrate supplement purported to increase endurance. Our purpose was to determine if the addition of PL to a glucose polymer solution (GP) extends exercise time relative to a pure GP solution. In a double blind and random crossover design, 5 subjects exercised twice to exhaustion at 70% of VO2max. During the trials, they consumed GP or a GP/PL mixture at the rate of 0.3 g carbohydrate per kg of body wt in a 7… CONTINUE READING
