9 Benefits of Hydration IV Therapy

By | IV Therapy | No Comments
Written by Chris Meisenhalder

 

You’ve probably been told many times that it’s important to stay hydrated. That used to mean drinking plenty of water and other fluids. But, now there’s a much better way to get your fluids—hydration IV therapy. Active, health-conscious people are discovering that the benefits of hydration IV therapy even outweigh the benefits of drinking lots of water. Here are nine of the key benefits hydration IV therapy delivers:

1. Hydration IV Therapy is More Efficient

Drinking fluids is actually not an efficient way to stave off dehydration. When you drink from a water bottle after a workout the tissues in your throat and along your digestive tract absorb most of the liquid. But, all of the tissues in your body need to be hydrated. That’s the reason you have to drink a lot of water to sufficiently hydrate yourself. Hydration IV therapy injects the fluids directly into your bloodstream so your body can deliver the fluids where you need them most. It’s a faster, more efficient way to hydrate your body.

2. You Need More Than Just Fluids

When your workouts are intense, you are losing more than just fluids. Drinking water isn’t enough. You also need to replenish your electrolytes and other lost nutrients. Drinking water doesn’t do that. Plus, drinking isn’t an efficient way to deliver the nutrients you need when you need them. Hydration IV therapy allows you not only get hydrated, but you also can refresh and replenish your body with the nutrients you need right away.

3. Hydration Therapy is Easier on Your Digestive System

Drinking a lot of fluids can be hard on your digestive system. Often you have to drink a higher volume of fluids than your body can absorb at one time. Your digestive system must work overtime to get rid of the fluids it cannot process. When your body starts to try and get rid of the excess fluids, it can lead to you flushing out many of the nutrients your body needs. If you are taking supplements with our fluids, those supplements can irritate your digestive tract. Hydration IV therapy allows your body to absorb nutrients and fluids without relying on the digestive system. It creates less waste than drinking fluids, and your body can retain more of the nutrients it needs.

4. Reduced Recovery Time

Hydration is critical to the recovery of your body. Athletes need hydration after a workout to help decrease muscle soreness and stiffness. If you are feeling tired after a long day at the office, you are actually dehydrated and need fluids right away to restore your energy. Fluids even help you recover from a hangover faster. Because it is so efficient, hydration IV therapy helps your body recover faster than drinking fluids does after you have been pushing yourself in a workout. The mixture of vitamins, nutrients, and fluids that you get with hydration IV therapy allows you to get back to feeling great in no time.

5. Hydration IV Therapy is Customized to Your Body

We are all different. Our bodies have different needs depending on our health, activity level, and our lifestyle. Drinking fluids doesn’t give your body the specific things it needs to perform at the highest levels. Hydration IV therapy is completely customized to your body. You get the perfect mix of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients that you need to feel your best. You can have hydration IV therapy that focuses on:
– Athletic recovery
– Energy boosts
– Hangover recovery
– Skin care
– Immunity boosts

6. Immunity Boosts

Nobody likes to be sick. Hydration IV therapy can help you avoid many common illnesses by providing you with a quick and efficient dose of immunity-boosting compounds like Vitamin C and Vitamin B12. Having these vitamins put directly into your bloodstream through IV therapy makes them much more effective than taking them orally. IV therapy is designed to get these immunity boosters to the parts of your body where you need them most.

7. Flushes Toxins from Your System

Dehydration affects your body in many different ways. It can lead to problems with your digestive tract, like constipation. It can damage your liver and kidneys and allow toxins to build up in your system. Hydration IV therapy flushes your body with clean fluids and helps improve the functioning of your vital organs. IV therapy allows your liver and kidneys to do their jobs more efficiently. Your kidneys and liver work to filter out toxins in your body and then eliminate those toxins. Drinking fluids often is too slow to allow your organs to get rid of all of the toxins that have built up. IV therapy quickly delivers the fluids in the proper amounts to all of your vital organs.

8. Improves Cognitive Function

Your brain needs to be well hydrated to work effectively or at its best. By the time you experience thirst, you are already dehydrated. At the earliest signs of dehydration, your brain begins to slow down. You don’t process information as quickly, and your memory may become impaired. Fluids keep your brain functioning properly. When you are well-hydrated, you make better decisions. However, the brain is one of the last places to get hydrated when you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy improves your cognitive functions much faster than just drinking water.

9. Improved Skin, Joint, and Muscle Health

We are all between 55% and 60% water. When we are dehydrated, we immediately feel the effects. But, the signs of dehydration are more than just being thirsty. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also all signs of inadequate hydration. However, getting enough liquids to these trouble areas is a real challenge if you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy will rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of fluids and nutrients flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to full health. Hydration IV therapy helps you look and feel healthy, so you can always be at your best.

High Dosage Ascorbic Acid Infusions

Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid has been well studied since its push into the public eye by Dr Linus Pauling. It has many wonderful properties that help in immune function. Vitamin C is a free radical catcher and antioxidant, and therefore reduces the oxidative stress brought on by inflammatory reactions to infection. It is a key factor in the immune system’s ability to fight infection and is 80x more concentrated in the white blood cells than the rest of the body. It leads to increased production of interferon and reduces the ability of viral replication by interfering with viral DNA/RNA reproduction. In test tubes Vitamin C is able to neutralize all toxins from snake venom to heavy metals, pesticides, cyanide, alcohol, and carbon monoxide.

While the old adage was taking high doses of Vitamin C orally could aid in fighting illnesses, it has been shown that the body will not efficiently absorb over 500mg orally versus when administered intravenously. The excess is just excreted when taken orally. By contrast intravenous Vitamin C is nearly completely absorbed and has not been shown to lead to kidney stones.

High dosage intravenous Vitamin C has been shown to aid in improvement and recovery from illnesses such as Lyme disease, Epstein Barr Virus (mono), Herpes/Zoster/Chicken Pox, West Nile Virus, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, ALS, Alzheimers, Crohns Disease, Polio, Diphtheria, Measles, Mumps, Viral Pneumonia, and even Cancer.
