NameLactic Acid
  • approved
  • vet_approved
DescriptionA normal intermediate in the fermentation (oxidation, metabolism) of sugar. The concentrated form is used internally to prevent gastrointestinal fermentation. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid, and has a mild saline taste. It is produced by fermentation of a sugar source, such as corn or beets, and then, by neutralizing the resulting lactic acid to create a compound having the formula NaC3H5O3.
SaltsSodium lactate
Brand Names
  • (40 Mmols/l) Potassium Chloride In Lactated Ringer's Injection USP
  • Cheongin Haejanghwan
  • Cheongin Hae
IndicationFor use as an alkalinizing agent.
PharmacologyLactic acid produces a metabolic alkalinizing effect.
Mechanism of actionLactate ions are metabolized ultimately to carbon dioxide and water, which requires the consumption of hydrogen cations.
