Looking to Improve Sports Performance and Recovery? Injection Therapy Might be the Answer

DaSilva and the Hacketts invite readers to feel the difference in athletic performance and general health, in a safe, sterile, relaxed, and comfortable environment.

IV nutrition has long been embraced by celebrities and pro athletes for its ability to instantly reverse common ailments, boost energy, and improve performance. But it doesn’t have to be a luxury. Austin DaSilva manages the Sarasota IV Lounge, the area’s first and only intravenous wellness bar. He notes, “We offer customized IV vitamin cocktails, boosters, and shots that maximize health, prevent illness, and reverse disease. Our clients represent all walks of life; many are competitive or recreational athletes.”

“The cocktails deliver high doses of vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gut for 100% absorption for long lasting and often instant results,” he continues. “They help alleviate cramping and help muscles repair from exercise—not torn ligaments, but the breakdown of muscle during exercise. Simply put, the cocktails offer a more pure form of vitamins and minerals. The vitamins and minerals are from the compound pharmacies, but we infuse the bags in the IV Lounge. Each drip is administered by a nurse and supervised by our medical director.”

DaSilva adds, “We also do vitamin injections and boosters, such as vitamin B12, Glutathione, B complex, Slimshots (to boost metabolism and promote weight loss), Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K.”

Deena Hackett, DOM, has been practicing acupuncture for 12 years and injection therapy for 10. Many of her clients are athletes who have turned to her practice as a solution for alleviating some of the aches and recovery time inherent in competition. Besides sports-directed acupuncture, Dr. Deena and her chiropractor husband, Joseph Hackett, DC, also use injectable vitamins and compounds to treat their clients. They own and serve as medical directors at 941Wellness in Sarasota.

She explains, “The main differences between shots and IV are the means of administration, the time to administer and the frequency of the treatment. We have found that the injectable vitamins and anti-oxidants, particularly Glutathione, can speed recovery for improved athletic performance. Interestingly, it also addresses issues such as compromised immune systems, brain fog, lack of energy, sleep issues, and is a strong anti-aging treatment.”

Some essential vitamins and minerals, specifically B12 and magnesium, can be hard to absorb when taken orally. Hackett notes, “B12 addresses conditions such as pernicious anemia, a result of vitamin B12 deficiency due to a lack of the stomach’s intrinsic factor that allows for B12 absorption. B12 injections are the best source of B12 for people with pernicious anemia. It is also important for good neurological health, as it’s essential for the proper functioning and development of the brain and the nerve cells. Whenever dietary absorption cannot meet a person’s vitamin B12 needs, injection is the most direct method.”
