You don’t have to be sick or hung over to be dehydrated. In fact, as many as 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Your body is made up of 55-65% water, with 2/3 of that contained within your cells. A fifth of that water is contained within your vessels, which carry nutrients to your organs and tissue and helps rid your body of waste.
When the normal water content of your body decreases, it upsets the balance of important minerals like salt and sugar in your bloodstream, which can affect your ability to function.
Early warning signs include:
Now that you know what can happen to your body when you’re dehydrated, let’s talk about how IV hydration therapy can help you feel better, faster in a number of scenarios.
Alcohol suppresses the hormone vasopressin, which tells your kidneys to retain fluid and helps maintain your circadian rhythms. That’s one reason why you urinate more frequently when partying and why you don’t sleep well afterward. It also causes general inflammation as well as gastrointestinal irritation, which bothers your stomach lining and releases more acid, causing nausea and upset stomach.
If you didn’t drink enough water between alcoholic beverages (or chug Gatorade before you went to bed), we can provide rapid rehydration. Our formulations are designed to top off your fluids and electrolytes – along with a dose of anti-nausea meds to get rid of head and stomach pain so you can rejoin the land of the living faster.
IV hydration can help you recover from the flu, food poisoning, sun poisoning, jet lag, or any situation that’s drained your fluid levels. You can even get an immune boost to defend against viruses during cold and flu season or help clear up brain fog.
Sweat is the body’s way of maintaining proper temperature during exercise. But as your sweat evaporates, you lose fluids, resulting in decreased blood flow, slower reaction time, increased fatigue, and poorer concentration. The warmer it is, the more important it is to hydrate early and often. Don’t wait until you start to feel thirsty.
Infusion therapy delivers fluids, electrolytes and essential minerals directly to your bloodstream. With the energy-boosting Vitamin B complex and magnesium and glutamine in our Athletic Performance and Recovery formula, your soreness will fade faster, allowing you to be back at full strength sooner.
When your skin doesn’t have enough water, it can’t function properly and it eventually shows. Your skin will appear less plump and wrinkles more pronounced. You might also develop scaling or flaking. It’s important to note that dehydrated skin is not the same as dry skin. Dry skin is a skin type in which in which skin lacks natural oils, leading to cracking and patchiness. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is something that can be fixed.
Our IV therapy delivers a precise blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to your bloodstream, nourishing your body from within. It supports collagen production for increased elasticity, fights free radicals (unstable atoms that can damage your cells) and promotes overall skin health, giving you back your inner glow.
We even have a special formula (NAD+) that helps you repair cellular damage, which our bodies do less efficiently as we age.
Better skin isn’t the only benefit of our anti-aging IV hydration formulas. We have special blends designed to prime your body for weight loss or alleviate the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
