    It’s not bad for your body–it actually helps muscles keep going when they are fatigued (tired.)

    Lactic acid is actually good for you, as long as your body breaks down that which is produces. In the past, trainers and athletes have blamed lactic acid as the cause of muscle fatigue and soreness. However, in recent years it has revealed itself to be a protective and efficient by-product of the human body. Lactic acid is formed when the body is low on oxygen, such as when it is engaged in aerobic and anaerobic activity or when it is fighting off an infection. Efficient use of lactate through exercise not only prevents build-up, but also generates even more energy for the body. It works in conjunction with the body’s natural breakdown of blood sugar and carbohydrates.
