Vitamins B/C are a weekend warrior’s best friends

Opening dates are on the calendar and snow is in the forecast. Ski/Board season is coming to Lake Tahoe, and with it, all of the weekend warriors who from Friday evening to Sunday night pack in the fun.

The Conditions

A day riding the mountain, an evening of good food and wine, topped off by a little Tahoe nightlife are Instagram worthy pursuits after a long workweek. Lake Tahoe’s South Shore can be a 24-hour destination, but all that fun combined with the elevation – yes, the air is a little thinner up here – can leave visitors tired and dehydrated. Throw in a heavy day of physical activity skiing or riding and it can really run you down and severely deplete your micronutrients, which play a vital role in energy metabolism and can result in symptoms of tiredness and lack of energy.

The Weekend Warrior

In fact researchers have found that people more prone to this problem fit in a “lifestyle” category that could be part of a Wikipedia entry for the weekend warrior. Young to middle-aged adults with high job pressure or the double whammy of family and work, for whom time is a commodity fit the bill. Sometimes life gets in the way of our best health choices. Eating lunch at your desk, dieting, excessive alcohol and coffee drinking. Then throw in a day of hard physical activity after a week of sitting at a desk. Sound familiar?

The Solution

There is hope. Instead of missing that morning or evening of possibilities and epic moments, warriors sojourning in South Lake Tahoe can get a restorative B-12 shot or hydration treatment with a boost of vitamins B and C from H2uP Tahoe. B-12 is critical in metabolism and B 1-6 are required for energy and metabolism. Combined with Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, the treatments are good for detoxing free radicals and giving an energy boost.
