Vitamin and supplement wise, I'm thinking my body has a problem with getting rid of lactic acid. I learned a little bit more about lactic acid build up during workout in my biochemistry class today and was hoping that I could test out some supplements for some personal research.
It has been shown that sodium bicarbonate can help improve your lactate threshold.
Richard Kreider (University of Memphis) conducted a six day trial with a Sodium bicarbonate supplement where 4 grams/day were consumed. At the end of this period VO2max was improved by 9%, LT raised by 12% and blood-haemoglobin levels by 5%.

Irving, Texas, (October 24, 2001) - A human clinical study reported in the fall issue of The Journal of Medicinal Food has shown that "lactic acid" was reduced 50% during strenuous exercise in athletes who took Microhydrin®, a mineral antioxidant marketed by RoyalBodyCare, Inc. (ROBE OTC: BB) of Irving, Texas.
