IV nutrient therapy has been proved to be helpful to athletes because it boosts their performance and increases their overall strength. It is also known to shorten recovery time and reduce fatigue.
LifeBoost of Boca Raton provides intravenous nutrient therapy that is effective in enhancing the performance of the athletes. Our practice provides various IV Nutritional Therapies that include vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. LifeBoost also provides intravenous nutrient therapies that are vital for the athletes such as The Myers’ Cocktail and an IV Glutathione Push.
The Myers’ Cocktail functions by increasing the concentration of vitamins and minerals in the bloodstream. During normal digestion, most people are unable to absorb much-needed nutrients. It has also been established that some diseases and lifestyle choices cause the body to utilize some nutrients at a faster rate. When these nutrients are given through the intravenously, the digestion process is bypassed. Therefore, the high concentration of the nutrients in the bloodstream leads to greater absorption in the mitochondria. A mitochondrion is an organelle found in cells, and it is responsible for biochemical processes and energy production.
Glutathione is found naturally, and it is mostly active in the human cells. Glutathione functions as an antioxidant, meaning that it gets rid of all free radicals that are responsible for diseases. Its depletion leads to cell death. Intravenous glutathione therapy supplies this essential nutrient into the bloodstream. Glutathione is beneficial to the athletes because it plays a significant role in tissue building and repair, strengthening the immune system, and production of vital proteins.
The use of Glutathione by athletes is anchored on a discovery that the administration of IV N-acetylcysteine increases muscle stamina. The finding proved that the chemical delays fatigue during strenuous physical exercises. In biochemical reactions, N-acetylcysteine comes before glutathione. Therefore, intravenous injection of glutathione for athletes will likely enable them to perform better.
