The Benefits of IV Therapy for Athletic Performance
As an athlete, the effects of dehydration during a sporting event — especially long and strenuous events like marathons — is sometimes inevitable. Dehydration, or exsiccosis, is a medical term defined as the state of decreased total body water resulting in the hypertonic and hypernatremic state.
The term “dehydration” can be used to refer to any of the following:
- Excessive use of glycogen by the body’s muscles
- Reduced sweat rates and low heat depletion
- Diminished blood volume
IV Therapy Before a Marathon
Marathon runners and triathletes push their bodies to their physical limits competing for long hours, sometimes under a blazing sun. When athletes engage in demanding or prolonged physical activity, the body’s temperature is elevated. As the body sweats to cool itself down, critical electrolytes and fluids are lost. If these electrolytes and fluids aren’t replenished, the risk of dehydration and heat illnesses such as heatstroke may increase.
As an athlete, you’re probably aware that inadequate hydration during an event means longer recovery times.
So, how do you treat severe dehydration — or prevent it — as an athlete? One of the most effective ways for athletes preparing for or recovering from strenuous athletic activity is to stay hydrated with IV therapy. IV hydration, or Intravenous hydration, refers to a highly-nutritional infusion of vitamins and minerals injected directly into the bloodstream. Effective IV therapy includes a combination of some or all of the following:
Sports medicine experts have long recognized the benefits IV therapy can bring. IV nutrients have been shown to repair the damage done to the body from training and injury, as well as enhance athletic performance. IV rehydration and prehydration has been proposed as an ergogenic aid to achieve hydration more efficiently.
Several endurance athletes have benefited from IV hydration as part of their post-race recovery regimen.
