2) Why do you use Oral IV?
I was having some dehydration and cramping issues especially in longer races and heavy training days. A friend of mine said I should try Oral IV so I gave it a shot. Since I started taking oral iv about a year ago I have not had one muscle cramp.

My preparation for racing has really grown in the last year. I train some weights but do mostly body weight exercises. I also train Jiu-Jitsu twice a week. I run between 12-18mi a week and mix in my weight vest. I usually take 1 oral iv in morning, 1 before training, and 1 after training.
