What is that furry, metallic taste in my mouth after hard workouts?
I seem to remember someone saying that it was due to the presence of lactic acid buildup during anaerobic respiration, and the taste was the body trying to expel the excess lactic acid. That seems to make sense to me. But some friends this weekend said that they thought that it could be that i'm burning muscle. So that got me curious enough to ask you guys.
I searched the forums for "metallic taste mouth" and came up with this link:
can you taste lactic acid?
which never seemed to answer the question.
