  • homofermentative
  • L. acidophilus is a homofermentative, microaerophilic species, fermenting sugars into lactic acid, and grows readily at rather low pH values (below pH 5.0) and has an optimum growth temperature of around 37 °C (99 °F). L. acidophilus occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract and mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • sugars
  • As a starting material for industrial production of lactic chemistry, that is applied for chemical synthesis, almost any carbohydrate source containing C5/C6 sugars could be used. (wikipedia.org)
  • primarily
  • Due to lactic acid's keratolytic properties (to break down hard skin cells) and urea's hydrating properties, Calmurid is used primarily in the treatment of dry, scaly skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • sour
  • Sourdough bread has a mildly sour taste not present in most breads made with baker's yeast and better inherent keeping qualities than other breads, due to the lactic acid produced by the lactobacilli. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • The expression 'lactic acid' is used most commonly by athletes to describe the intense pain felt during exhaustive exercise, especially in events like the 400 metres and 800 metres. (brianmac.co.uk)
  • sensation
  • This burning sensation is a signal that lactic acid is slowing down muscle contractions to prevent cell damage. (livestrong.com)
  • In addition to causing a burning sensation, lactic acid also causes an increase in both growth hormone and testosterone secretion in the body. (livestrong.com)
  • Comparative
  • It was during the 1980s that studies on fatty acid composition, nucleic acid hybridization, and comparative oligonucleotide cataloguing of 16s RNA showed the significant differences between enterococci and streptococci. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cheese
  • This book discusses numerous problems occurring in relation to microbiological quality of lactic acid cheese. (novapublishers.com)
  • Lactic acid cheese constitutes the source of various nutritive substances, which results in a possibility of allochthonous micro-flora to grow despite the presence of starter micro-flora. (novapublishers.com)
  • indication
  • If lactic acid is increased this can be an indication of heart failure which results in diminished capacity to move the blood through the circulatory system. (brighthub.com)
  • ingredient
  • Calmurid Cream contains the active ingredients lactic acid and urea, whereas Calmurid HC contains an additional ingredient, the mild corticosteroid hydrocortisone. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Solubility is so high that 1 part of lactic acid can dissolve 12 parts of water. (wikipedia.org)
  • An individual with extremely high lactic acid may be slow to respond having difficulty speaking cohently. (brighthub.com)
  • A "fight-or-flight" response, for example, often relies on this acid for the energy a person needs to quickly run at high speeds. (wisegeek.com)
  • body
  • 6-1-02: WolfKeeper says Re: lactic acid is also a fuel your body can burn. (everything2.com)
  • There may be muscle stiffness or discomfort but this resolves as the body metabolizes the lactic acid. (brighthub.com)
  • Lactic acid training is used by body builders and other athletes who want to lose weight quickly but also gain muscle and endurance. (livestrong.com)
  • A variety of exercises can be included as part of lactic acid training, but all of them involve pushing your body to its limits using resistance training. (livestrong.com)
  • growth
  • The amount of growth hormone released in lactic acid training can be up to nine times the amount produced under normal circumstances. (livestrong.com)
  • basic
  • Disclaimer: of course this analogy isn't perfect, but it does give the basic idea of why lactic acid forms. (everything2.com)
  • On it's most basic level, lactic acid training is fairly simple, according to certified trainer Nick Nilson, in "Metabolic Surge Rapid Fat Loss and Muscle Building. (livestrong.com)
  • Two basic amino acids surround the negative charged ligands to neutralize them. (wikipedia.org)
  • theory
  • In theory, lactic acid training is straightforward, but a variety of factors can influence its effectiveness, including both your levels of fitness and your diet. (livestrong.com)
