Benefit # 10 – IV Therapy for Athletic Performance

by | Benefits

This is installment #10 of our “14 Proven Benefits of IV Therapy” Series.

IV Therapy is the fastest and most effective way to hydrate and restore your body after an intense workout whether you’re running a 10K race, battling through a through a mud run, or burning calories during a cross fit class. IV therapy has a 100% absorption rate, which means your cells have instant access to the fluids, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes that your body needs. 

Some of the benefits of IV Therapy for athletic performance are as follows:

  • Improves muscle strength 
  • Improves endurance
  • Promotes muscle growth
  • Cushions joints
  • Improves energy consumption
  • Reduces muscle cramps
  • Reduces soreness
  • Reduces muscle aches
  • Improves cellular repair in the body
  • Improves mental clarity

During intense exercise, our bodies go through a multitude of physical changes. The body releases a stress hormone called cortisol, which impacts your immune system. Normal kidney function is disrupted by reduced hydration and reduced blood flow to the organs. Minute tears in muscle tissue cause inflammation and soreness. Delivering fluids, electrolytes, and vitamins via IV Therapy after intense exercise quickly replenishes these depleted resources without putting more stress on the kidneys and digestive system. Restoring the electrolyte balance immediately after an intense workout aids in the recovery of muscle tissue and reduces soreness.

IV Therapy isn’t just useful after intense activity. Many long distance runners, cyclists, endurance athletes, pro athletes, and other weekend warriors are using IV Therapy in preparation for strenuous events. Using IV Therapy before intense activity allows the athlete to have immediate availability of the electrolytes and nutrients for use during the workout.
