IV therapy is an excellent compliment to any athlete’s training routine or to recover from an athletic event. Utilizing a variety of vitamins, minerals, and medications can help an individual optimize your workout, supercharge your recovery, and restore your fluids and vitamins quickly for maximum post-workout wellness.
Benefits of IV Therapy for Athletes Include:
Promotes efficient energy consumption
Protein synthesis support for muscle growth and repair
Reduces muscle aches and soreness
Reduce muscle cramps
Improved muscle strength and tone
Improved cellular repair
Reduces the oxidative stress in your body
IV therapy gets to work immediately, replenishing your body’s level vitamins and fluids lost during a workout. Because IV fluids are delivered directly into your bloodstream, you can enjoy full, immediate absorption of fluids and additional vitamins, minerals, and medications (your body absorbs what it needs and excretes the rest). Your cells have instant access to the hydration benefits because they do not have to wait to be absorbed by your stomach.
IV Ingredients & Their Benefits:
IV fluids: A sterile saline solution that hydrates your body and delivers vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream for 100% absorption.
B-Complex Vitamins: A family of vitamins that perform many different roles in your body, including energy production, metabolic support, cardiovascular support, and more.
Vitamin B12: Vital to brain health and energy. Essential for building new blood cells, DNA, and nerve insulation.
Vitamin C: An antioxidant vitamin that supports muscle growth, bone strength and health, circulatory function, aids in the removal of free radicals, and supports cell repair and wound healing.
Magnesium: An essential mineral that promotes normal nerve and muscle function, promotes cardiovascular health, and supports protein production.
Glutathione: A supercharged dose of a powerful antioxidant that removes free radicals naturally produced by your body when you work out, reducing oxidative stress for faster recovery between workouts.
