Athletic performance takes a large toll on the body’s fluid and nutrient stores. During times of physical exertion, our body sends increased amounts of nutrition and blood to meet the increased demand. This may leave us feeling depleted and low on vital nutrition. High performance athletes are known to push their bodies to the limits and may require extra support to restore balance after intense training sessions or athletic events.
Nutritional supplements may help aid in the recovery of intense physical performance or give you an extra boost, providing much needed energy to help meet maximum results. As the body utilizes its stores of nutrition, athletes should consider replacing those values on a daily basis. Certain vitamins such as B vitamins are water soluble, and the body doesn’t store these vitamins in the same ways that it stores fat soluble vitamins, such as vitamin D. Fat soluble vitamins allow the body to store extra vitamins in fat, which enable the body to use our fat sources when needed.
B vitamins are typically a valuable source of energy for athletes and an important source of sport performance. B vitamins help us source energy from food and play an integral role in blood health. Blood cell production relies on B vitamins and helps individuals metabolize iron - both are necessary functions for athletic performance due to its ability to transport oxygen throughout the body.
Intense exercise also leads to the rapid loss of fluids within the body. Proper hydration is necessary for all of the organs to perform optimally. Our bodies quickly become dehydrated during physical performance and even more so during times of intense physical performance. IV fluids help restore electrolyte imbalances due to fluid loss. IV therapy helps deliver hydration, nutrition, and electrolytes rapidly into the body and deliver these vital components directly into the bloodstream.
IV nutritional therapy helps athletes recover quicker from intense physical performance. Marathons, triathlons, or other limit pushing sports activities can take a large toll on the body due to its extraordinary nature of vigorous exertion. We may feel the effects of these events in our muscles with cramping or the extreme fatigue that might follow these performances. IV therapy can help reduce the symptoms of cramping by restoring hydration and providing nutritional support due to salt loss or nutritional deficiencies. IV drips will also reduce overall inflammation from the overuse of muscle. IV therapy is a natural way which athletes can help achieve peak performance by providing your body with the proper nutrition and hydration needed.
