If you’re an athlete, you know the stress that exercise and regular gameplay puts on your body. What are you doing to protect your health and further your skills? Regular hydration and eating nutritionally balanced meals are important, but as an athlete, your body often needs more than the food on your plate. Add athletic vitamin supplements to your routine to keep your muscles, joints and immune system strong.
IV Revival makes getting that extra boost painless and easy with their IV vitamin therapy services. Their registered nurses will come to you, whether it’s at home or courtside, to keep you feeling and performing your best.
Many athletes are in need of B vitamins, hydration, and magnesium before and after their training sessions.
Prehydrate Before A Big Game
Start training sessions, exercises and tryouts strong by getting hydrated before you begin. If you’re lacking hydration before you start exercising, your risk of becoming dehydrated significantly elevates. Another common health problem for dehydrated athletes are muscle cramps, which severely hinders their ability on the field.
The American College of Sports Medicine recommends hydrating hours prior to exercise, especially if known deficits are present, and fluids should be consumed at a slow, steady rate.
While you can consume up to 20 fluid ounces of water or a sports drink 2-3 hours prior and 10 fluid ounces 10-20 minutes before your start working out, you can choose a quicker and longer-lasting route with IV vitamin therapy.
Big name sports teams are getting on board with IV hydration too. Twenty-four out of 32 National Football League Teams, that’s 75%, utilize IV infusions for prehydration. In the NFL survey, the most commonly cited reason for this was to avoid muscle cramps — 23 out of the 24 teams claimed it helped.
Of the 24 teams, an average of 5-7 athletes used the treatments prior to competing.
Hydration therapy may give you a step up that feels unfair, but it is not cheating! You’re simply giving your body what it needs to prepare.
Why IV Revival Helps Athletes
Hydration is important, no matter who you are. The human body is composed of 60%-70% water and we use water to regulate our body temperature and maintain bodily functions in all cells, organs and tissues. Exercising or playing sports increases your internal temperature. The more hydrated you are, the less chance you have of overheating and damaging your body.
On top of that, IV Revival’s fluids come pre-loaded with electrolytes and are pH balanced. You can say goodbye to your sports drink and enjoy the long-lasting benefits of an IV solution.
Nutrients administered through an IV can have a more rapid effect on tissues and cells, thus providing deep nutrition for energy production and muscle health.
On top of that, IV Revival offers vitamin B-complex, B12, C, and magnesium, all of which are crucial for muscle growth, repair and relaxation, and immune system strength.
Vitamin B-Complex and B12
Medical News Now found that B vitamins aid in releasing energy. Female athletes and vegetarians and vegans are the most at risk for having a B12 deficiency. This can make you feel weak and tired, thus unable to perform at your best.
An IV is the fastest way to increase your B vitamin levels but because it is water soluble, following your treatment with a B12 shot will ensure your levels stay elevated longer. IV Revival’s B12 vitamin is five times more potent than most to help fight fatigue, promote healthy metabolism, reduce the risk of a stroke and heart disease, improve memory, mood, and immune function.
If you’re a wrestler, a gymnast or involved in weight-controlled activities, you need 10-20% more magnesium due to the level of physicality in your preferred sport.
For pre-game, magnesium loosens up your muscles and activates adenosine triphosphate (ATP), helping your body to create more energy. Magnesium may help boost your exercise performance too! It is a key nutrient in driving cellular energy pathways.
For post-game stress or after a tough workout, magnesium can help relax your muscles and treat the pain associated with muscle gain. It can also be used to treat pain, muscle spasms and more.
While not proven to prevent a cold, vitamin C and magnesium are both proven to shorten the duration of the cold and flu. If you have a big game on the horizon and are feeling under the weather, IV Revival can give your immune system the boost it needs so you can recover before you have to get on the field.
Additionally, vitamin C plays a huge role in strengthening collagen, the main component of connective tissue.
Everyone wants to win. Give yourself and your teammates a better shot by staying hydrated and getting all the necessary vitamin supplements your body needs. Whether you want to dominate the playoff game or push yourself to the limits during a training session, being hydrated is what allows you to start and finish strong. The added vitamins in IV Revival’s treatment help you to keep up high intensity activities for longer too.
If you’re worried about going into a clinic, IV Revival can come to your home or next team meeting. Sessions take 40 minutes to an hour.
