Three physical health benefits of IV therapy.
IV Therapy helps support weight loss by combining lipotropic (fat burning) supplements as well as vitamins to boost energy and support metabolism. Lipotropics, such as methionine, inositol, and choline, help your body to break down fat and encourage the export of fat from the liver.
There is a well-known link between hydration and weight toss. Staying properly hydrated, like with IV fluids, can help your body maintain energy and burn fat to the best of its ability.
The best investment you can ever make is in your own health.
Speaking of water intake, dehydration can wreak havoc on athletic ability and water alone will not replace the electrolytes lost during exercise. This can lead to muscle cramps and make one more prone to injury. There are sports drinks designed to combat this but during exercise, blood is shunted away from the digestive tract, towards the muscles, making oral supplements even harder to absorb than usual.
IV therapies to improve athletic performance, which can be given pre or post workout, bypass the digestive tract and deliver these supplements right to the bloodstream where they have 100% bioavailability.
Standard athletic IV infusions include vitamin B complex, magnesium and zinc, which drive cellular and mitochondrial energy production, vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant to strengthen collagen, repair muscles and reduce inflammation, as well as amino acids for muscle repair and carnitine which helps promote muscle endurance.
Muscle exertion causes cell and tissue damage and as the body heals this damage, we begin to feel soreness and possibly cramps. Amino acids, the building blocks of protein can help repair this damage faster, leading to decreased recovery times.
