Exercise Enthusiasts and Athletes Have Special Hydration Needs: Learn How IV Infusions can help

Exercise Enthusiasts and Athletes  Have Special Hydration Needs: Learn How IV Infusions can helpAlong with proper nutrition, exercise, and rest, hydration is key to accelerated healing. Dehydration is when our molecules have lost H2O, and it can be extremely dangerous, causing permanent damage to the cells, organs and musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, it’s quite common not to feel thirsty until you’re already dehydrated. Thirst is a sign that the detrimental effects on your organs and cells have already begun. Dehydration can cause dry skin, constipation, and lubrication deficiencies in the joints and eyes. In more severe cases, it can even lead to organ failure, liver and kidney disease, urinary tract infections, muscle damage, and heatstroke.

Dehydration Symptoms:
• Dry mouth
• Headache
• Fatigue
• Dizzy
• Nausea
• Cramping muscles
• Wrinkled fingertip pads
• Bladder pain

We’ve all heard the standard “drink eight glasses of eight ounces of water daily.” The reality, however, is that requirements vary depending on an individual’s size, health, and physical activity levels. For athletes or exercise enthusiasts, hydration is critical when it comes to preparing for and recovering from events or long training sessions. Keeping the body hydrated before exercise is just as important as rehydrating after.

Proper hydration is more than just H20. Proper vitamin and mineral levels play a large role. Replacing the vitamins and minerals lost through sweat is sometimes complicated and difficult. Vitamins and minerals are not always adequately absorbed at the cellular level when taken orally. Instead of reaching for fancy vitamin or electrolyte infused drinks that are often filled with sugar, consider more efficient ways to maintain hydration and nutrient levels.

IV infusions for hydration have been the standard choice for many athletes for the past several years. Why? Because it’s effective! For example, a runner hydrates before a 10K or marathon to avoid cramping and losing energy, but what happens after the race? Many times the runner attempts to rehydrate orally, only to overload their digestive systems and throw up the drink, thus throwing off electrolyte balance further.

IV infusions administer proprietary blends of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and other compounds to sustain hydration. IV Infusion supports athletic performance, anti-aging, weight loss, detoxification, stress, and chronic fatigue, just to name a few.

At HYDR8 Wellness Center in Sarasota, the staff members are experts at administering vitamin and supplement infusions. Each patient is evaluated and, depending on their individual health concerns, are given the best combination of vitamins and antioxidants via IV therapy. The patients are able to relax in a state-of-the-art lounge while the IV is administered. The highly trained practitioners at HYDR8 take great pride in caring for their patients. All treatment is under the medical direction of HYDR8, and many physicians in the area refer their patients to HYDR8 for their alternative health and wellness options.

IV therapy is the fastest way to replenish the vital fluids and vitamins your body needs!
