Sarah's body would swell during travel and after Ironman races. Although some swelling is normal, Sarah would sometimes retain upward of twenty pounds of fluid after a race. Her night sweats were unbearable. Some nights, she would have to change four times and put several towels down because she soaked through the sheets. She was very uncomfortable, disheartened, and frustrated. Find out how Ixcela guided Sarah.
“Ixcela doesn’t stop you from getting sick, but it does reduce the incidence and severity. You do get sick, but you bounce back quicker, that’s powerful and significant in a sporting context.”

Quincy’s GI distress hurt her athletic performance and sometimes caused her to miss two or three races a month, but she couldn’t figure out how to remedy her problem. Find out how Ixcela guided Quincy.
