If you’re an athlete, you know your performance is a complex blend. That blend includes physical training, what you eat, and your general health. You need a proper training program geared for your fitness level and designed to balance your nutrition throughout the day.
Hydration is another essential part of top athletic performance, and IV therapy can help you perform your best. Our team at Hands on Health Wellness Center in Carrollton, Texas, offers deeply hydrating IV vitamin therapy to nourish your body so you recover faster.
As an athlete, you realize the importance of hydration. You know your body is 50%-70% water, and when you sweat in the hot Texas sun, you need to replenish that lost water, as even mild dehydration can affect your performance. Yet, water alone isn’t enough to help you feel your best.
That’s where IV vitamin therapy comes in. This treatment can fill your body with the nutrients and hydration it needs to thrive. Because you receive the nourishment via IV, the nutrients hit your bloodstream quickly, bypassing your digestive system so you recover faster.
There was a time when you could only get IV therapy in a hospital or in an emergency, but that’s no longer true. Now athletes and anyone who wants a boost can enjoy the benefits of IV vitamin therapy.
While we have six basic recipes, including the IV Sporty, we prepare each mixture for your specific condition and needs. We also have micronutrient testing to discover which nutrients your body is missing most so we can tailor your therapy to your body’s needs.
The IV Sporty includes vitamin C, magnesium, B complex, and glutamine, among other vitamins and nutrients. You can add L-carnitine via prescription.
Before your IV vitamin therapy, we discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and goals. If we determine IV vitamin therapy is right for you, we prepare your special blend and encourage you to sit back and relax.
Once we insert the needle in your vein, you rest for the duration of the drip, which varies but could be an hour or more. We monitor the drip speed and your comfort level while the vitamins empty into your bloodstream.
After the IV therapy is complete, we remove the needle, put an adhesive bandage on your arm, and share any follow-up instructions.
If you’d like to schedule an IV vitamin therapy to boost your athletic performance, call our office or book an appointment online today. We even offer a mobile IV bar if that’s more convenient for you!
