IV hydration is a more efficient way to improve the absorption of fluids and nutrients into your body.
When fluids and nutrients are taken orally, the throat and digestive system absorb a large amount of the fluids consumed.
The liver and kidneys break down nutrients, making a smaller amount available to the tissues. By delivering fluids and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, you can get them directly to the tissues that need them and produce a better health outcome.
Drinking a lot of fluids can also be hard on your digestive system. When you are dehydrated, your body tries to take in more fluids by mouth than your body can absorb. Fluids that are not processed are flushed out of the body, taking vital nutrients with them. Your digestive system can also become irritated if nutrients are taken in by mouth.
If you are an athlete, IV hydration can help decrease muscle stiffness, soreness, and energy levels post-workout.
Fluids can also help you to combat altitude sickness and decrease the effects of a hangover.
Many visitors to the area come from sea level and experience altitude sickness with symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, headache, fatigue, dizziness or light-headedness, loss of appetite, nausea and/or vomiting, rapid heart beat, and shortness of breath. Altitude also increases the affects of alcohol, causing decreased alcohol tolerance and exacerbating hangovers. Getting fluids and nutrients directly to the tissues that need them will help to flush toxins from your system and get you feeling better.
IV hydration and (if needed) supplemental oxygen can help decrease these symptoms exponentially.
IV hydration can also help patients avoid illnesses and increase immunity. Also, proper hydration improves cognitive function, dry skin, and muscle and joint pain.
