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.
