IV Therapy’s Advantages in Athletic Performance

The effects of dehydration on an athlete during an athletic event, particularly lengthy and demanding events like marathons, are sometimes unavoidable. Dehydration, also known as exsiccosis, is a medical condition characterized by a loss of total body water, resulting in a hypertonic and hypernatremic state.

The term “dehydration” can apply to any of the following conditions:

  • Excessive glycogen consumption by the body’s muscles
  • Low heat depletion and less sweating
  • Blood volume has decreased.

Before a Marathon, Get Fuzed! 

Marathon runners and triathletes put their bodies to the test by racing for long periods of time, sometimes in scorching heat. The body’s temperature rises when athletes engage in strenuous or prolonged physical activity. Critical electrolytes and fluids are lost while the body sweats to cool down. Dehydration and heat diseases such as heatstroke can occur if these electrolytes and fluids are not supplied.

As an athlete, you’re surely aware that dehydration causes lengthier recovery periods during an event.

So, as an athlete, how do you treat — or prevent — acute dehydration? Staying hydrated with IV treatment is one of the most effective techniques for athletes preparing for or recuperating from heavy physical exercise. Intravenous hydration (IV hydration) is a highly nutritive infusion of vitamins and minerals that is administered straight into the bloodstream. A combination of some or all of the following is used in effective IV therapy:

  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione
  • Zinc
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin B12
  • Pepcid
  • Benadryl
  • Toradol

Experts in sports medicine have long acknowledged the advantages of IV treatment. IV nutrients have been found to help the body repair damage from training and injury while also improving athletic performance. IV rehydration and prehydration have been advocated as an ergogenic intervention for more efficient hydration.
