IV hydration therapy

You’ve probably been told that it’s important to stay well hydrated. And for a long time that simply meant drinking lots of water! Luckily, there’s a better way to get your fluids – IV hydration therapy. Many active, health-conscious individuals are now discovering the benefits of IV hydration therapy over downing fluids. 

  1. IV Therapy is More Efficient

Drinking lots of water was once considered the best solution to dehydration. However, researchers found that when people drink fluids after a workout, most of it is absorbed by the tissues in the digestive tract. On the other hand, IV therapy hydrates your body more efficiently by delivering fluids directly into your bloodstream, where they travel to the parts of your body that need them most.

  1. You Need More Than Just Fluids

When your workouts are intense, you are losing a lot more than just fluids. You also need to replenish electrolytes and other lost nutrients. IV hydration therapy allows you to not only get hydrated but replenish your body with the vital nutrients you need right away.

  1. 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 larger volume of fluids than your body can absorb at one time. IV hydration allows your body to take in more fluids (and nutrients) without relying on your digestive system.

  1. Reduced Recovery Time

Hydration is critical to recovery. Athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike need hydration to decrease muscle soreness and stiffness after a workout. Adequate hydration also helps flush lactic acid out of your system. 

  1. Improved Skin, Joint, and Muscle Health

We should all be about 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. IV hydration therapy can improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles.
