Full details on all Anaerobic Running Capacity supplements are available to Examine members.
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence

Notes
grade-a Minor High See all 19 studies
Appears to increase anaerobic cardiovascular capacity, not to a remarkable degree however.
grade-a Minor Moderate See all 34 studies
Cardiovascular exercise where failure is associated with metabolic acidosis (ie. 'the burn') appear to get benefit with bicarbonate supplementation to a small degree but reliably. For other exercises (rowing, sprinting, swimming) not characterized by the burn, the benefits are much less reliable
grade-b Notable Moderate See all 7 studies
Appears to benefit anaerobic cardiovascular exercise, perhaps due to combination antifatigue effects and increasing power output
