Athletic Performance & Recovery IV

Athletic Performance & Recovery IV

About The Athletic Performance & Recovery IV

As the body expends energy through strenuous physical exertion, fuel, in the form of macronutrients, is burned at a rapid pace. These macronutrients, better known as proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, are easy to replace by consuming food post-activity. However, the micronutrients within the body that help to efficiently transform consumed materials into energy the body can use are not replenished so easily. After strenuous athletic activity, it takes time for the body to recover these micronutrients, rehydrate and rebuild strained muscle tissue.

The Athletic Performance & Recovery IV is formulated specifically to help active individuals recover as quickly as possible and make the most of their physical activities.  It helps the body recover through the following processes: full rehydration, increase in the body’s creation and usage of the hormone used in the growth of muscles, support of energy development within the cell, and reducing the time it takes for the body to get through the post-workout soreness phase.

This IV treatment is useful for all kinds of athletic applications. From competitive athletes to individuals that are just seeking a healthier lifestyle, the Athletic Performance & Recovery IV is the perfect intravenous treatment for those looking to get the maximum from an active lifestyle.

The Science Behind Athletic Performance & Recovery IVs

In order to understand what the Athletic Performance & Recovery IV replenishes, we must take a look at what happens within the body during physical exertion. Anyone who engages in intense athletic activities can become low in both macronutrients and micronutrients due to exertion and loss of fluids. This is because the harder-to-replace micronutrients are used as fuel when the muscles produce energy as ATP, a complex organic chemical that is essentially used as the currency of energy transfer. The body uses ATP for two forms of exercise: anaerobic and aerobic.

Anaerobic (without oxygen) exercise is quick burst, short-lasting exercise. It relies on smaller energy sources already stored within muscles, and unlike aerobic exercise, is not dependent on oxygen derived from breathing. This type of exercise causes both rapid fatigue and the burning sensation in muscles, and the body can only sustain it for very short periods of time. Aerobic (with oxygen) exercise, sometimes referred to as cardio, can be sustained much longer due to the creation of energy through the oxidation of fuel sources like glycogen and fatty acids in the muscles, liver, blood, and fat tissue. The transformation of these fuel sources into usable energy for muscles is known as the Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle. This process also requires micronutrients such as B vitamins, glutathione, magnesium, and l-carnitine in order to carry out the cycle effectively and deliver the energy the muscles need.

Since these micronutrients are necessary in order to keep the body active during exercise, they can easily become depleted during long terms of activity. Once this happens, the ability to perform at a high level decreases and the body will suffer more post-workout. This is why the Athletic Performance & Recovery IV is so effective in giving the body what it needs to keep functioning powerfully during and after physical exertion.

Inside The Athletic Performance & Recovery IV

In order to keep the body fully supplied with what it needs to continue operating at peak performance, the Athletic Performance & Recovery IV is brimming with micronutrients that need to be replenished during draining exercise. Vitamins including B vitamins (B5, B6, B12) and a B complex with zinc and magnesium are included to give the Krebs cycle sufficient support in energy creation. The amino acids L-Glutamine and L-Arginine, along with grain protein content (GPC) that helps regulate nutrient translocation, are also included in order to boost the production of growth hormone. This leads to greater muscle growth and quicker recovery. Another amino acid that is present in the Athletic Performance & Recovery IV is L-Carnitine. This amino acid helps the body burn fat after a workout even more efficiently by acting as a cellular transporter, delivering fat into the mitochondria to be used for manufacturing energy.

Also contained within this IV are glutathione, vitamin C, and sodium chloride. The glutathione and vitamin C are two antioxidants that effectively reduce the inflammation that occurs within muscles and tissues during and after exercise. The sodium chloride acts as both a transportation fluid and a rehydration source. Add all those powerful vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients, and you have the impressive Athletic Performance & Recovery IV, the perfect treatment for those who enjoy active lifestyles and want to keep their performance at a high level.

Detox IV

About The Detox IV

When toxins overwhelm the body, it becomes very difficult for a person to regain a healthy lifestyle. Exhaustion, fatigue, decreased mental ability, depression, and an inability to effectively manage weight gain or loss are all signs that harmful materials have invaded an individual’s system. Detoxification is vital in situations such as these, and the Detox IV helps to give your body what it needs to properly carry out this process. First and foremost, the primary organ that needs bolstering is the liver, as it is the center of the body’s detoxification processes. The Detox IV provides the liver with phosphatidylcholine and glutathione, nutrients that decrease the toxic stress on the body by giving the liver the resources it needs to operate efficiently. As a result, mental and physical energy and focus will trend back towards a stronger level because of the elimination of toxins stressing the body.

The Science Behind Detox IVs

Detox, or detoxification, and its importance are something that we hear about in media quite often, but proper detoxification and how it occurs in the body can still be a mystery to many. The first part of the detoxification process, known as metabolism, is the conversion of toxic (deemed harmful by the body) materials into less harmful molecular structures by our natural metabolic system. These broken-down toxins are then flushed out of the body through urine and through bile. This process takes place to remove the toxins present in common foods and beverages we consume from day to day.

When stronger toxic materials enter an individual’s system, the liver is needed for extra support in detoxification and safe expulsion from the body. These substances include, but aren’t limited to, alcohol, NSAIDs such as ibuprofen and aspirin, heavy metals, mold, pesticides, and other harmful materials in food. When the liver has too many toxins to process at once, it gets overwhelmed, unable to manage them all. Harmful substances are regulated and excreted in an order-based manner, where the body rids itself of the ones it can and holds the ones it can’t until the load is lessened enough to where they can all be eliminated. But when the toxic load is never sufficiently depleted, the toxins remain in the body with very detrimental long-term effects.

The Detox IV ensures that your liver has the support it needs to keep working and not become fatigued during constant detoxification. However, it is important to help your liver during IV treatment by personally reducing the amount of toxins introduced into the body as much as possible. This means reducing the intake of alcohol and tobacco, managing stress, getting adequate sleep, and not having drastic weight gain or loss during treatment. Doing so will allow your body to make the most of the powerful support the Detox IV provides.

Inside The Detox IV

A powerhouse of detoxification, the Detox IV boasts an effective combination of phosphatidylcholine and glutathione. The infusion of phosphatidylcholine acts as a boost to the support and protection of cells from toxins. Located within cell membranes, this cellular component protects cells while properly regulating the transportation of materials into and out of them. The glutathione in the Detox IV assists in the successful elimination of toxins by adhering to them and making it easier for the body to excrete them. Boosts of these naturally-occurring substances provided by the Detox IV work in tandem to support optimal function of the liver, leading to higher levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays a strong role in an individual’s energy and focus.
