Peak Performance

No pain, no gain may be a great motivator to push your workout to the next level, but it can leave many people so sore that their entire exercise program grinds to a halt.

With Peak Performance IV drip, you can give your workout recovery the support it needs to help to ease the pain, reduce inflammation, and reduce lactic acid build-up. We start with rehydration, then add in targeted minerals such as magnesium and zinc to support muscle health. This is further supported by amino acids, which work to increase recuperation time and build lean muscle mass.

Next, B vitamins boost energy and ease aching joints, while antioxidants like vitamin C and glutathione fend off free radicals and reduce inflammation. We round this out with the NSAID Toradol to further reduce pain and inflammation.

If you are looking to boost your athleticism, let Peak Performance reduce post-workout recovery time so you can get all the gain without the pain.

B-Complex
Vitamin B complex is a group of separate, water-soluble nutrients: B-1 (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin), B-5 (dexpanthenol), B-6 (pyridoxine), and B-12.

Antibiotics such as sulfa drugs and tetracycline can interfere with the production and absorption of B vitamins. If you are taking these medications, you may need to increase your intake of these nutrients. Take B vitamins during the day, rather than at night, as they can be too stimulating.
B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is needed by the body to properly metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. It plays an important role in virtually every organ system and condition, most notably skin health, brain health, joint pain, and immunity.
B6 (Pyridoxine)
Vitamin B6 helps support healthy blood flow, maintains blood pressure, and even promotes optimum cholesterol levels. It also works to reduce homocysteine, a substance that increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

B6 can also ease many PMS symptoms, reduce sugar cravings, boost energy, and strengthen the immune system.
B12 (Cobalamin)
Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. It also helps to maintain healthy homocysteine levels, and arterial function supports normal cholesterol levels and blood vessel dilation and is involved in DNA synthesis. It also plays a role in energy production.

Only bacteria are capable of synthesizing B12, and as such, it is found almost entirely in animal food products due to animal-bacteria symbiosis.
Vitamin C
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient. Humans cannot manufacture their vitamin C and must rely on food and supplements to obtain it.

Vitamin C is best known for its role in the synthesis of collagen, a connective tissue protein used as a structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. A deficiency of vitamin C leads to scurvy, which is characterized by insufficient collagen production.

It is also a powerful antioxidant, protecting against free radical damage, supporting immune health, and even promoting an antiviral effect.
Glutathione
Glutathione is a potent free radical scavenger composed of three amino acids (cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid). It is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy detoxification and coronary artery support.
L-Arginine
L-arginine is an amino acid that helps to produce nitric oxide (NO), a gas that enhances the flow of blood to your arteries and veins. As such, arginine has been shown to have significant cardiac benefits, including optimizing the flow of blood and transport of oxygen to all the cells and tissues of your body by supporting the health of your blood vessels and coronary arteries.

L-arginine has also been found to be useful in supporting joint health and blood pressure and has even been shown to boost libido.
L-Carnitine
L-carnitine is an amino acid produced from two other amino acids—lysine and methionine—as well as vitamin B-6, vitamin C, niacin, and iron. It is found in all living tissue, with the greatest concentrations found in the adrenal glands, bones, and cardiac muscle. Smaller amounts are found in the kidneys and brain.

L-carnitine shuttles fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are essential for the production of ATP, the most readily available form of energy. It also supplies oxygen to the heart, boosts metabolism, and helps burn fats and enhance circulation by improving blood flow. Additionally, it protects the liver from the harmful breakdown products of everyday fat metabolism, as well as alcohol detoxification.
L-Glutamine
L-glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body. Though it is classified as a non-essential amino acid, glutamine is essential for maintaining the intestinal structure.

Glutamine is also an antioxidant and serves as a major source of fuel for your digestive system, keeping it energized and working strong. As such, your GI tract is one of the biggest consumers of glutamine in your entire body.
Magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral that plays many important roles in human health. It is important for bone health, synthesis of DNA and RNA, and hundreds of metabolic reactions.

Magnesium also assists in calcium absorption and prevents calcium-containing kidney stones from forming. It also improves energy production in the heart, dilates coronary arteries, supports blood pressure, reduces the risk of blood clotting, and even helps in the synthesis of glutathione, which plays a key role in detoxification.

The adult body contains about 25 grams of magnesium, with more than 60 percent of total body magnesium found in bone, and about 27 percent in muscle.
Toradol (ketorolac)
Toradol is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) used to ease moderate to severe pain. It reduces inflammation, swelling, pain, and fever. It is intended for short-term pain relief and not for long-term pain management. Side effects, though rare, include nausea, GI upset, and dizziness. More serious side effects include kidney damage and allergic reaction.
Zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral, meaning your body does not produce it. Zinc is critical for cellular metabolism and supporting the activity of over 300 enzymes. It is also required for regulation of immune function and neuron communication, as well as a reduction in severity of the common cold, maintaining skin integrity, wound healing and improving male infertility.

Your body cannot store zinc, which means that daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state within your body.

THE NITTY GRITTY

When you do intense exercise, your body needs more and more oxygen flowing to your muscles to produce energy. But when you burn through that energy faster than you can replace it with oxygen, your body starts to pull the energy from your muscle, thanks to a process known as glycolysis. This can result in lactic acid buildup.

B vitamins have been shown to improve the use of glycogen and help transport oxygen to your tissues. While the entire B complex is effective in boosting energy and supporting oxygen to the cells, when it comes to lactic acid prevention, B5 (pantothenic acid) is the star.

B5 works to create cellular energy for tissues to use as fuel. This helps prevent lactic acid buildup from even occurring. B5 also boosts aerobic capacity and muscle energy.

Intense exercise not only leads to lactic acid buildup but also to free radical production. Worse yet, excess lactic acid itself can also produce free radicals. Enter antioxidants. Antioxidants work to counteract the damage caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C specifically protects vital molecules in the body from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species. These molecules include proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). It also plays a complementary role with other antioxidants, working to regenerate them from their oxidized form back into their reduced (active) forms.1-2

Glutathione is another potent antioxidant. It has been shown to be particularly beneficial in fighting exercise-induced free radical damage and oxidative stress.3

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and protein is critical for muscle health. One amino acid, in particular, is important when it comes to lactic acid, and that’s L-carnitine.

Carnitine is essential for the transport of fat into cellular mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy.1 This helps your body pull the energy it needs from fat and glucose rather than the muscles themselves.

Another amino acid - arginine - is known for nitric oxide production, working to improve blood flow and circulation through your arteries, also feeding oxygen to your muscles, where it can be pulled for fuel during exercise. Lastly, glutamine supports digestive function, as well as immune and muscle health. However, so much glutamine is used by the GI tract that little is left for muscle health. But ensuring you have adequate glutamine, your immune system gets a much-needed boost, and your muscle gain energy and fuel.4-5

Minerals like magnesium and zinc work their magic by working to reduce muscle cramping. Magnesium, in particular, has been shown to not only reduce leg cramps by relaxing the muscles, 6 but also to ease restless leg syndrome.7

Like magnesium, zinc also helps to ease muscle cramps. Additionally, by supporting healthy hormone production, it not only boosts athletic performance but can also help improve exercise recovery.8

Lastly, the NSAID Toradol works to reduce pain and inflammation following exercise, while GPC works to lessen recovery time.
