There is a reason why IV hydration is popular these days and it is essential for everyone to know the variety of benefits it provides. IV or intravenous hydration therapy is the fastest way to deliver blood products, vitamins, medications, or other necessary fluids directly into a person's circulatory system.
Besides curing hangovers and providing you with essential nutrients, IV drip therapy can also cleanse your body of toxins and free radicals that can damage cells and DNA and promote aging.
IV therapy ultimately boosts the body’s immunity by replenishing it with essential vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
Our body needs a certain amount of vitamins and nutrients to function well, but with our busy work routine and lifestyle, our body does not get the required nutrients it needs. The ideal balance of vitamins and nutrients provided by IV therapy leaves you feeling better and improves your immunity.
Some of the many benefits you can get from IV therapy are:
Safe and convenient - IV therapy is quite safe and is a fairly simple procedure. On average, you can expect a single session to be around 30 minutes, but this depends on your age and weight, plus the chosen IV type, which typically ranges between 15 and 90 minutes.
Improved skin, joint, and muscle health - The signs of dehydration are not just being thirsty. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also signs of inadequate hydration and one cannot rehydrate just by drinking water. Hydration IV therapy can rapidly help improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles.
Flushes toxins from your body – Toxin build-up in our body can lead to liver and kidney damage over time. IV therapy flushes your body with clean fluids, removes the toxin build-up, and helps in improving the function of your body.
Boost your energy levels - 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. The right balance of vitamins and minerals through IV therapy can help increase your energy levels.
Improves immune levels - IV hydration therapy can help you avoid many common illnesses by providing you with a quick and efficient dose of immunity-boosting compounds like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, etc.
Improves cognitive function - Your brain needs to be well-hydrated to work effectively. However, the brain is one of the last places to get hydrated when you are only drinking water. IV hydration therapy improves your cognitive functions much faster than just consuming fluids.
We have been told many times that it is important to stay hydrated, but with our busy lifestyle, most of us don’t do it. IV therapy is simple, convenient, safe, and a direct procedure, meaning the fluids infused get directly into the bloodstream as it is infused through the veins.
Active and health-conscious people are discovering that the benefits of IV hydration therapy even outweigh the benefits of drinking lots of water.
