Silver Solutions MedSpa will provide a suite of IV programs combined with specific oral medical supplements, each supported by robust research. Focused dietary recommendations will be included. There are two interlocking goals:
1) IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
IV Glutathione, B12 injections and oral Coenzyme Q10 and NT Factor as individual nutrients all have their important roles to play in supporting improved performance for cyclists, runners and rowers who train regularly. Meyer’s cocktail is a time honored IV nutrient cocktail that can help cover a wider range of functional deficiencies. Vitamin C can be especially helpful to those whose training be partially suppressing their immune systems, which need help in fighting off common viruses circulating in the general population. Beet juice and dark chocolate are foods of great interest to enduranc e athletes wishing to best physiological parameters influencing athletic performance.
2) IMPROVE ENERGY
Energy is produced in the cells’ mitochondria, 500 to 1000 per cell. Each nutrient is chosen for its documented role in supporting the well understood mitochondrial energy pathways.
Combining nutrients, each with strong supportive research
Carefully designed research shows IV glutathione can lower the time in an 18.4 mile time trial from 57 minutes and 30 seconds to 52 minutes and 51 seconds, a 7.2% gain, in a 61 year old male cyclist. Glutathione is a major antioxidant and detoxifying agent that performs multiple roles in the body. Reliable testing of intracellular levels is available at a reasonable cost.
Vitamin B12 is a key nutrient in the body’s energy equation. It may be low in many training athletes, even though blood levels are normal. Also, over 30% of the population may be especially responsive to injections of a specific form of B12, methylcobalamin.
The Meyer’s cocktail is widely used by training athletes for both recovery and performance enhancing. Its frequency and dosing interval can be tailored to the individual based on close clinician and athlete monitoring. The idea behind a “cocktail” approach is to increase the likelihood of supplying a hard training athlete’s body what it needs to perform and feel better.
MITO Q is the recommended novel formulation from New Zealand with over 15 years of research, designed to improve actual delivery to the inside of the mitochondrial, where it is needed (not floating around in the blood!). Continuation of use is based on an individual’s clear perception of improved energy.
Very popular with cyclists, runners and triathletes. “The available results suggest that supplementation with beetroot juice can improve cardiorespiratory endurance in athletes by increasing efficiency, which improves performance at various distances, increases time to exhaustion at submaximal intensities, and may improve the cardiorespiratory performance at anaerobic threshold intensities and maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max).”
The study, which has now been published in the Journal of the International Sports Nutrition, found that after eating dark chocolate, the riders used less oxygen when cycling at a moderate pace and also covered more distance in a two-minute flat-out time trial.
