how does iv max-athletic performance work?

During intense physical activity, your body uses up your macronutrients – protein, fats, and carbs very quickly which are easily replaced when you eat. The co-factors and micronutrients that convert food into ATP or energy are more difficult to re-acquire. IV therapy can be used to quickly replenish micronutrients for quicker recovery and performance.


Ingredients: B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Chromium, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc, Carnitine, Taurine

  • B Vitamins help restore energy production, cellular repair, and detoxification so you can back to activities you enjoy faster.3,4
  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps “mop up” inflammatory products, enhances muscle recovery and growth.5
  • Calcium is vital for bone building, helps to prevent muscle cramps, central to nerve and muscle function, cardiovascular health, and a steady state of calcium flow between cells is needed for cellular energy.6,7
  • Chromium is a mineral that supports balanced blood sugar and can help reduce cravings.8
  • Copper helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption.9
  • Magnesium promotes the reduction of inflammation, fatigue, muscle spasms, pain, and improves heart health.10,11
  • Manganese is vital for superoxidase dismutase (SOD) an antioxidant and may reduce inflammation. Evidence supports that combining manganese with glucosamine and chondroitin can reduce osteoarthritis pain that may develop in athletes.12
  • Selenium is a powerful antioxidant to reduce free radical stress that is involved in the constant repair of muscle tissue.13
  • Zinc is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, modulates the immune system, promotes wound healing, and can help improve VO2 max.14
  • Carnitine increases energy production and increases the amount of fat burned for fuel, even post work-out.15
  • Taurine improves post-workout tissue repair, and reduces muscle soreness.16

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally.


    • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D supports keratinocytes, follicle growth cycle, skin barrier function, and helps to reduce skin infections.17
    • IV Fuel G Push: Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant.18
