D-lactic acid metabolism after an oral load of DL-lactate.


We have investigated in normal human volunteers the short-term and long-term metabolic consequences of the oral intake of d-lactic acid. After the consumption of 6.4 or 12.8 mmol/kg(0.75) body weight of racemic dl-lactic acid, d-lactate was eliminated from plasma with half-lives of 28.6 +/- 4.3 and 40.4 +/- 5.4 min; its maximum plasma concentrations were 0… (More)
