What Are The Benefits of IV Therapy?

IV Therapy

IV Therapy has gained popularity over the years, and for good reason. When you receive IV therapy, you can flood your body with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients without affecting your digestive tract. Sometimes, when you take too many different or a high volume of oral supplements, your digestive tract can struggle to keep up, and you may experience unwanted side effects. 

IV Therapy Infusions

Since IV therapy started, it has evolved to become one of the most popular treatments in modern medicine. IV therapy infusions can be an excellent option for anyone who would like to boost their health and well-being. IV therapy delivers the nutrients right into your bloodstream for the most rapid absorption, and your body can process one hundred percent of the nutrients, versus only around 20% from oral supplements

Rehydrate Your Body

If you feel run down, dehydrated, or have had an illness, your body may be dehydrated. Many people are chronically dehydrated and exhibit symptoms. Brain fog, headaches, and fatigue can all be warning signs from your body that you aren’t drinking enough water, and it’s vital to get electrolytes in your body. Potassium, calcium, and magnesium are all important for proper hydration. 

Kick Start Weight Loss

Some IV therapies may help boost weight loss, especially those containing arginine and carnitine, amino acids. These can boost your metabolism while building muscle mass, improving your liver function, and possibly reducing your weight. Certain amino acids are believed to help assist the body with weight loss.  

Boost Athletic Performance 

If you’re working out for better fitness and health, there are IVs available that can help improve your athletic performance. IVs with infusions of specific amino acids can help reduce recovery time, repair cellular damage, improve endurance, and fuel muscle growth. Whether you are a professional athlete or just a gym rat, IV therapy may be the boost you need to improve your athletic performance. 

A Quick Pick-Me-Up

Since most IV therapies take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, your body gets a hefty dose of crucial minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes in a short period of time. Some places can even customize a cocktail for your specific ailments. If you are recovering from jet lag, a hangover, or just the stress of everyday life, a special IV may be just the ticket you need to feel better. 

Enhance Your Immune System

B vitamins are important in energizing and strengthening your immune system, and amino acids like lysine can help your body improve its healing response. People undergoing cancer treatments may benefit from IV therapy to boost their immune systems. Even if you don’t have cancer, your immune system can benefit from IV therapy. 

Beautiful Skin

Vitamin C plays an essential part of keeping your skin healthy as well as assisting your skin in looking smooth and soft. It can also help protect against certain skin diseases and sun damage. The body can’t make vitamin C, so it’s important to ensure you are eating or taking in enough vitamin C. 

Repair Nutritional Deficiencies 

Suppose you have a chronic illness like Celiac Disease, Crohn’s, irritable bowel syndrome, or colon cancer. In that case, it can lead to nutritional deficiencies because your body can’t absorb everything it needs from the diet. Since IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, you can get electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins directly into your bloodstream to help you maintain mental and physical health.
