Boosting Athletic Performance and Recovery

avIVa Infusions is proud to offer the most complete performance-enhancing and exercise recovery infusion available. Our Athletic Performance & Recovery infusion is packed with nutrients that will boost your energy, promote muscle growth and repair, improve blood sugar control, enhance fat loss, and much more. Read on to learn more about each component.

Amino Blend
We use a blend of 6 amino acids including L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Lysine, L-Ornithine, and L-Citrulline. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are required for the growth and repair of muscle and body tissue. Exercise, stress, and illness increase the body’s amino acid requirements. Amino acids promote strength, endurance, and recovery. Furthermore, L-Carnitine stimulates fat loss and may help with weight loss.

Taurine has a multitude of pre-and post-exercise benefits. It increases strength, improves focus, increases muscle cell volume, inhibits muscle breakdown, and improves endurance. Taurine also has the added benefits of enhancing heart health by improving cholesterol and blood pressure, eye health, improving blood sugar control and complications in diabetics, as well as positive effects on weight management, and anxiety.

Magnesium is an essential mineral responsible for over 300 biochemical functions in the body. It is also one of the most common nutrient deficiencies. Magnesium may improve exercise performance by helping sustain energy levels by enhancing glucose availability in the brain, muscles, and blood. It promotes muscle relaxation and may also reduce lactic acid accumulation to lessen muscle soreness. Exercise causes magnesium levels to fall and post-exercise replenishment may help prevent cramping and reduce inflammation.

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and plays an essential role in muscle contraction. It is also important for bone health, nervous system function, blood pressure, and maintaining a regular heartbeat. Replenishment is important as exercise may increase calcium loss, especially high-intensity exercise.

B and C Vitamins
We round off this infusion with high dose vitamin C for its antioxidant benefits as well as to enhance exercise recovery. Vitamin B12 and B-complex vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6) supply energy, enhance exercise performance and may help repair and rebuild muscle.

High-intensity exercise, poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, and alcohol can deplete glutathione stores. Supplementation with this master antioxidant has been shown to boost mitochondrial levels and delay exercise-induced fatigue. Along with high dose vitamin C and taurine, it also helps combat oxidative stress and inflammation.

We combine these ingredients with a full liter of IV fluids to flush out toxins, and quickly rehydrate and replace fluid losses from exercise.

This infusion will benefit everyone from the novice exerciser to the elite athlete. We recommend weekly infusions for ongoing results and optimal performance. It may also be strategically used just prior to an athletic event and just after for quick recovery. Click here to book an appointment today.
