is there any way to neutralise lactic acid in the body?

is it possible to neutralise it, or would it create salt water in the blood stream?

    Hi

    In medicine, when a person is in a state of 'acidosis' we correct it by injecting Sodium Bicarbonate Solution, but metabolic acidosis is caused by several proton species, including carbon dioxide.

    Some athletes have, in the past, 'soda-loaded' by drinking large amounts of sodium bicarbonate solution to induce a state of alkosis BUT it is dangerous and can have severe consequences so DONT DO IT.

    Lactic acid is broken down naturally by the body. It is referred to as "recovery time" after exercise.
