Boosting your metabolism and losing weight requires a combination of eating in a caloric deficit, exercising regularly and practicing healthy lifestyle choices to improve sleep and reduce inflammation and stress. 

Many of our modern medical therapies—from Cryotherapy to IV Drips—can enhance your efforts to achieve your weight loss goals. In this guide, we'll explore four options at Restore that may help you on this journey.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

During a Cryotherapy session, the body is exposed to subzero temperatures for up to 3 minutes while you listen to your favorite song. 

How Does It Work?

This exposure triggers a metabolic response, causing the body to work harder to maintain core temperature. This increased metabolic activity may contribute to calorie burning and fat loss over time. Cold therapy increases the production of adiponectin, a protein that plays an important role in protecting against insulin resistance, and it may improve insulin sensitivity, glucose homeostasis and metabolic health.

Other Benefits

Whole Body Cryotherapy can help increase your baseline antioxidant capacity and immune response with implications for reduced inflammation and releases noradrenaline, beta-endorphin and dopamine due to a cold stimulus—which may have a positive effect on mental health and brain development.

Infrared Sauna

Infrared Saunas heat the body through light waves and increase the temperature of the ambient air inside the sauna to promote sweating and detoxification. 

How Does It Work?

Heat therapy provides similar benefits as cardiovascular exercise, which can improve cardiometabolic health and cardiometabolic outcomes by improving several parameters of heart and vascular health. It may improve glucose metabolism and homeostasis, along with hypertension due to nitric oxide promotion and vasodilation.

Other Benefits

Sweating in the sauna may lead to temporary water weight loss, and the increased heart rate can mimic the effects of moderate exercise. Additionally, the relaxation induced by sauna sessions may help reduce stress, a common contributor to various health issues.

COQ10 IM Shot

Coenzyme Q10 (COQ10) is a compound that plays a crucial role in energy production within cells. 

How Does It Work?

Administered through Intramuscular (IM) Shots, COQ10 can boost cellular metabolism, potentially supporting weight loss efforts. Improved energy levels may contribute to increased physical activity, aiding in the creation of a calorie deficit. 

L-Carnitine IV Drip

L-carnitine is an amino acid that plays a key role in the transportation of fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria, where they are burned for energy. Intravenous (IV) Drips deliver L-carnitine directly into the bloodstream, enhancing its absorption. 

How Does It Work?

L-carnitine may support fat metabolism and potentially increase endurance during exercise. It can help improve body composition by reducing adipose tissue, boosting skeletal muscle mass and improving glucose metabolism.
