Expert Answer:

The two types of fermrntation include lactic acid fermentation and alcohol fermentation. In alcohol fermentation, the major products are alcohol and carbon dioxide but in lactic acid fermentation, the major product is lactic acid.
Lactic acid buildup in the muscles causes muscle cramps. Lactic-acid fermentation is an anaerobic respiration pathway that takes place when ,oxygen is not present (anaerobic pathway).When muscles are cramping, it is important to drink a lot of water to rid the muscles of the lactate. When oxygen is present again, aerobic respiration will resume.
