IV hydration therapy is a treatment that utilizes an intravenous drip to introduce saline with vital electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly and immediately into the body. Patients find that IV hydration therapy may help with:
- Cleansing the body
- Boosting the metabolism
- Promote anti-aging
- Immune system support
The contents of the drips vary depending on the patient's aim, but many, including the popular Myers' cocktail, contain magnesium, vitamin C, calcium and some B vitamins. By delivering a high concentration of vitamins and minerals straight to the bloodstream, the body can reap their benefits more effectively than pills, which are not entirely absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract.
IV hydration therapy nourishes, revives, and rejuvenates the body with intravenous fluids, vitamins, and electrolytes.
The I.V. Doc website reports that the oral intake of fluid and vitamins has an absorption rate of, at best, 50-60%. Intravenous hydration, however, doubles that amount and boasts a 100% absorption rate. Patient’s fluids and electrolytes are greatly replenished through IV therapy.
