IV hydration therapy, also called IV vitamin, nutrient or IV infusion therapy, is a procedure to administer fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. A tiny needle is placed into your vein to deliver the fluids or nutrients slowly. Each treatment lasts between 30-60 minutes.
There are different types of IV hydration depending on your needs and goals. IV hydration can help your muscles recover after a workout, help prevent migraines, relieve the symptoms of a hangover, or increase energy. Coastal Heart Medical Group offers:
As a preventive treatment, IV hydration can help you prepare for travel or seasonal changes by boosting your immune system during cold and flu season, boosting energy before international travel to help avoid jet lag, improving cognitive function before an exam, or improving breathing during times of increased pollen levels.
IV hydration delivers faster results because IV hydration therapy bypasses your gastrointestinal tract and delivers the vitamins, antioxidants, and hydration directly into your bloodstream.
It also increases the amount of nutrients that get to the cells. For example, when you take a vitamin or consume foods, your stomach breaks down the nutrients. Only about 50% of the nutrients consumed from food or vitamin supplements get used by your body. IV hydration increases the absorption of nutrients and vitamins by your body for faster, better results.
The Myer’s cocktail is the most popular form of IV hydration therapy, known for boosting energy, improving athletic performance, and increasing immunity. Some people request the Myer’s cocktail therapy to relieve symptoms from common health issues, including:
People with chronic fatigue also benefit from Myer’s cocktail IV hydration therapy.
Most people between the ages of 18-65 can get IV hydration therapy. Some infusions may not be right for you if you have allergies or are pregnant or nursing. Your doctor conducts a medical history and exam to determine if IV hydration therapy is right for you.
