How It Works
What Is IV Hydration Therapy?
IV hydration therapy is a common, low-risk procedure used by doctors, nurses & paramedics to rehydrate the body intravenously, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. In short, it's the fastest, most efficient delivery method to distribute vital fluids & nutrients throughout your body.
How Does IV Hydration Work?
Intravenous (IV) fluid drips deliver a combination of saline solution, vitamins, electrolytes and medications through a small catheter and tubing directly into the bloodstream. The ingredients in individual IV formulas are specifically blended to address a variety of health needs.
Are IV Drips Safe?
Yes, our formulas are administered by a medical professional who has the appropriate training and proven experience in IV therapy. All medical personnel are licensed and certified by a relevant certifying board in the state. For reference, people have been getting IVs for almost 200 years. Vitamin-powered IV therapy has been practiced safely for decades, although the service is pretty trendy at the moment. Furthermore, our medical team can answer any specific questions you have about the service before or during your treatment.
Are IV Drips More Effective Than Simply Drinking More Fluids?
IV fluids are faster and more effective than oral supplements and medications. Water and vitamins ingested orally have to be digested and absorbed into the bloodstream before they can start making you feel better. Age, activity level, illness, malabsorption issues, stress, and previous gastrointestinal surgery can influence how well your body can absorb supplements and medications when ingested orally. Drinking alcohol also slows the absorption process which is why oral hangover treatments are ineffective.
IV treatments are administered directly into the bloodstream and immediately circulated throughout the body. Your body uses the maximum amount of what it needs and excretes the rest for maximum effect. Since IV drips are delivered into your bloodstream, the ingredients become immediately available to your cells, greatly decreasing the time it takes for a medication or supplement to take effect.
