That handy kitchen helper sodium bicarbonate, aka baking soda, doesn't just kill odors and put out fires. It can also counteract the buildup of lactic acid that causes the "burn" you feel when muscles are overloaded or overtaxed. Research in the International Journal of Sports Medicine suggests that adding baking soda to your water after intense cardio intervals can prevent soreness and stiffness.
4 cups water (or 1 liter)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 - 1 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons sugar or agave nectar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed citrus juice
Combine all ingredients in a bottle. Shake well to mix.
