The Athletic Performance IV is the best option for those starting an exercise program that will require a higher demand from the body. These infusions are not just for serious athletes, but also for all who are working out regularly to achieve a healthier physique and quality of life. During physical exercise our bodies use up macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) for energy, but it will also burn through the micronutrients such as B vitamins and amino acids. Your body’s metabolism converts carbohydrates, fats, and proteins found in food into energy through a complex series of chemical reactions, which are driven by enzymes that require certain vitamin and minerals.
Often replenishing these nutrients with diet alone is difficult requiring the use of nutritional supplementation. When you do not manage this correctly it can lead to dehydration, soreness, fatigue, injury, muscle loss and fat gain. This IV has the important B vitamins and we add some important ingredients that will improve muscle recovery and help increase endurance and stamina. This has been a great option for those training for Marathons, Triathlons, Pre-Season Training and just intense body shaping. These usually are provided in a series of 5-10 infusions depending on the timing of competition.

CoQ10 or ubiquinone is a naturally occurring fat-soluble quinone that is an excellent antioxidant. Its greatest concentration is in the mitochondria where energy is made for every cell in the body. The heart has very high-energy demands and a very high concentration of CoQ10. Oral administration of CoQ10 has not been found to be effective to facilitate the uptake of CoQ10 by target tissue, as it is necessary to raise blood levels aggressively. Effective levels can be achieved using intravenous CoQ10, which has been used to support the treatment of cancer, mitochondrial disease and heart disease. IV CoQ10 has been found to support energy production, performance enhancement, improved cognition and as a cardio-protective agent. Deficiencies are caused by age, poor internal production, poor intestinal absorption, higher than normal use from intense exercise, certain drugs such as cholesterol lowering medications.
Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it is essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, lysine must be obtained from food. Lysine helps to fight Herpes outbreaks, increases growth hormone production, and helps to regulate hormone levels. Also aids in production of antibodies and supports the immune system.
Magnesium plays an important role in many of the body’s enzymatic reactions and plays an important role in neurochemical transmission and muscle contraction and relaxation. It is responsible for over 300 essential metabolic reactions in the body. It is required for synthesizing proteins in the mitochondria, and for generating energy in most of the body’s basic cellular reactions.
VITAMIN B12 (METHYLCOBALAMIN)
The natural form of B12 is better absorbed than Cyanobalamin and essential component for proper digestion and absorption of foods and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates, and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is needed to make DNA. Vitamin B12 is also involved in homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism, immune function, and nerve function.
Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy elevating certain enzymes that are needed by the body to effectively metabolize sugars, starches, and other carbohydrates. Anyone who exercises can benefit from Carnitine supplementation because it reduces the accumulation of lactic acid, which training is responsible for the burn felt inside the muscles.
VITAMIN C (ASCORBIC ACID)
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the activity of approximately 100 enzymes. It interacts with the hormone insulin to improve glucose metabolism, and is a key factor in the regulation of blood glucose levels. Zinc is necessary for the synthesis thyroid hormones and promotes wound healing.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant containing the amino acid cysteine, which is needed for cellular production of energy and proper immune function. It helps remove free radicals from blood and cells before they can cause oxidative damage. Glutathione also aids in the neutralization of toxins in the liver. Studies have showed that glutathione can increase stamina and delay fatigue during strenuous, prolonged exercise in endurance-trained individuals.
The B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. B vitamins are an important part of the diet and are essential to prevent many health problems. They play a major role in the activities of enzymes, proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body, which are important in turning food into energy and other needed substances.
People may experience a feeling of warmth or mild discomfort when receiving an IV. Rare complications that can occur during intravenous therapies include phlebitis (inflammation of the vein) and fluid infiltration (leaking of fluid into the surrounding tissues).
