While we all need to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay healthy, hydration is particularly crucial for athletes. During exercise, your internal temperature rises and the body sweats to prevent overheating. Especially during long periods of intense exercise, you may lose a significant amount of water through sweating, leading to dehydration.
IV therapy can help athletes rehydrate and recover after long sessions of exercise. Here, we’ll discuss how athletes can use IV therapy to their benefit for improved hydration, recovery, and performance.
How IV Therapy Provides Fast Hydration
IV therapy can be used to rapidly rehydrate the body after an intense practice or game. By delivering a blend of vitamins, nutrients, and saline solution directly to the bloodstream, IV therapy can rehydrate the body faster than drinking a sports beverage or a glass of water.
Rehydrating the body helps prevent fatigue and soreness, allowing athletes to jump back into training.
IV Therapy For Improved Recovery
IV therapy can also make it easier for athletes to get the nutrients they need for optimal performance. Specifically, key B vitamins, amino acids, and magnesium in the Performance IV treatment at The IV-Suite offer unique benefits to busy athletes.
- B vitamins
B vitamins are essential for the body’s conversion of carbs and protein into energy. Additionally, B vitamins have an important role in cell repair and production.
- Amino acids including carnitine and taurine
Amino acids are molecules that come together to create proteins. In IV therapy, amino acids can aid in muscle repair and energy production for greater athletic performance.
Magnesium deficiency is associated with muscle spasms and cramping. Our Performance IV treatment delivers a dose of magnesium directly to the bloodstream for a faster recovery process and injury prevention.
