IV Hydration Q & A

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration is the delivery of fluids, vitamins, and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This approach is the fastest and most effective way to help you reach proper hydration levels.

Most of the time, you’re able to stay properly hydrated by drinking water and other beverages throughout the day. In some situations, however, your body isn’t able to keep up with your hydration demands. That’s where IV hydration therapy comes into play.

When is IV hydration necessary?

One scenario that could be vastly improved by IV hydration involves a moderate-to-severe hangover. A night on the town can leave you woefully dehydrated, and the result can be fatigue, headache, body aches, and a generally terrible morning. Even worse, the effects can linger throughout the day as you try to restore hydration levels.

A hangover feels like all of your body’s cells are screaming out for hydration, which is not far from what’s actually taking place. IV hydration can get you where you need to be in a short period of time.

Another example is a case of food poisoning. When contaminated food hits your digestive system, your body responds with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The last thing you want to do is drink anything, even though that’s exactly what’s needed. IV hydration helps you regain the proper balance and can soothe the symptoms of food poisoning.

Your IV hydration experience can be customized to suit your specific needs. Vitamins, minerals, or other micronutrients can be added to your solution to achieve the best possible results.

What are some symptoms of dehydration?

Dehydration can sneak up on you, and you often won’t experience symptoms until you’re well past the point that hydration was needed. If you’re even mildly dehydrated, you may experience a combination of the following:

  • Thirst
  • Headache
  • Muscle cramping
  • Dark urine
  • Cool, dry skin
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
