The purpose of the study was to comparison the effect of sodium bicarbonate and dimethylglycine on biochemical blood parameters and anaerobic function in youth elite basketball players. Fifteen youth elite basketball players with 15 17 years old and 72.02 2.56 Kg divided into three groups: placebo group, sodium bicarbonate group and dimethylglycine group. During the study amount of 500 (m.l) solutions that content 300(m.g) sodium bicarbonate per/kg of body weight was given to the sodium bicarbonate group. In addition, the dimethylglycine group received a 400(m.g) dimethylglycine per/kg of body weight and third group received a 500(m.l) placebo solution. Blood samples was collection before and after of supplement administration and especially after of performance the Wingate test (30 second). Process of data gathering was analyzed by SPSS software. Results of the study shown that after administration of sodium bicarbonate and dimethylglycine supplements, blood lactate was increase but it finding statistically not significant (P&
