L-Lactate

Optimal Result: 0.6 - 16.4 mcg/mg creatinine.

L-Lactate is a product of muscle use, so it is constantly produced in normal daily activity.

Nutrient association: CoQ10, Vitamins B1, B3, B5, Lipoic acid

Metabolic Pathway: Anaerobic energy production

What does it mean if your L-Lactate result is too low?

Low L-lactate is seen in people with very little physical activity and in highly trained athletes.

What does it mean if your L-Lactate result is too high?

High L-lactate can cause muscle cramping, fatigue and brain fog, and indicates insufficiency of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a nutrient that enables the body to use oxygen to generate large amounts of energy. It is important for athletes in maintaining intense muscular activity. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant and may help to slow the aging
process and prevent a variety of degenerative diseases.
Risk for certain kinds of heart disease, cancer and hypertension are increased when CoQ10 is insufficient.

When both L-Lactate and pyruvate are high, there may be insufficient lipoic acid, a type of B-vitamin.
