As part of the School of Science and Technology SHAPE Research Centre Seminar Series, Luana farias de Oliveira, University of Sao Paulo presents: Attempts to improve sodium bicarbonate supplementation.

Abstract

Sodium bicarbonate supplementation is a buffering agent commonly employed as an ergogenic aid to improve physical performance limited by acidosis (e.g. high intensity exercise). However, a number of issues are associated with sodium bicarbonate supplementation, such as the large dose require and consequent adverse side-effects. Recent pharmacokinetic data suggest that timing of ingestion may optimise supplementation although several questions remain such as the reproducibility of blood responses, when minimal thresholds of blood bicarbonate increases are achieved and the general possibility of individualized supplementation protocols. This talk will comprise some of the data from my PhD and discuss optimizing sodium bicarbonate supplementation for dose and side-effects, evaluate the intra-individual variability in blood responses and assess supplementation in different forms. Data from four studies will be presented: A) Is bypassing the stomach a means to optimize sodium bicarbonate supplementation? A case study with a post bariatric surgery individual; B) Individualization of sodium bicarbonate ingestion based on time-to-peak: a necessary strategy?; C) Sodium bicarbonate supplementation: avoiding the stomach acid - gelatine vs gastro resistant capsules; D) Different forms of sodium bicarbonate to optimise supplementation.
