Traveling can be difficult, but it's important to remember that you need time for your body and mind after returning home. An interrupted routine takes some adjustment in order for your body systems (especially those related with wellness) to work properly again.
You may feel fatigued, less energetic or just plain worn-out from all of that traveling!
Whether you're taking a trip for leisure, a jet-setting executive, a flight attendant who constantly travels for work, or someone who works crazy hours at home or online, IV vitamin therapy can help you get back to your normal routine and feel better practically overnight.
Here are 4 reasons why travelers need IV therapy, before or after traveling:
IV therapy Helps with jet lag
Travel by air and crossing time zones disrupts our internal clock - your circadian rhythm. Because our body’s natural balance is disrupted, you may feel fatigued and dehydrated after a long flight.
Although jet lag symptoms are temporary, they can be highly disruptive upon returning home or on the first few days of arrival. Air pressure and lower oxygen levels on a plane at high altitudes can lead to headaches, nausea, upset stomach and dehydration.
The more time zones you cross, the worse jet lag tends to be, and it usually includes any of the following unpleasant symptoms:
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Trouble concentrating
- Daytime drowsiness
It is also beneficial to get an IV therapy infusion before a flight, especially for those who frequently travel. Hydrating your body in advance and making sure you have the nutrients, vitamins, and fluids you need to feel your best can help minimize or even prevent many jet lag symptoms.
Because rehydrating your body after a long flight is essential to relieving jet lag symptoms, an IV drip for jet lag typically contains fluids, anti-inflammatories, vitamin B12, and several other vitamins your body needs to re-energize.
IV therapy Helps with your sleep routine
Sleep is essential to every process in our body which affects our physical and mental functioning, our ability to fight disease, develop immunity and our metabolism, and chronic disease risk.
Whether jet lag is causing you to sleep more than you should or sleep deprived from working very long hours, IV hydration effects can help counter abnormal sleeping patterns after traveling.
IV vitamin drips with B complex, or vitamin B, is helpful in achieving good sleep. B complex helps the body produce sleep-inducing melatonin, promoting normal sleep-awake cycles.
IV therapy Helps with re-hydrating
At high altitude, there is less oxygen and the air has very low humidity. While flying, the dry air is recirculated into the plane making it harder to stay hydrated. The average person loses about a pound of water over a five-hour flight, which can easily make you feel fatigued or trigger a headache.
While dehydrated, your skin becomes oilier as a defense mechanism to the dehydration, and can cause breakouts – and who wants that in all of their vacation photos?!
Because IVs are extremely hydrating, they can greatly improve your flying experience. Intravenous fluids are the most effective and efficient way to hydrate and replenish deficient vitamins quickly, and when combined with immune system boosting vitamins, they represent a great option for pre and post-travel.

IV therapy Helps boost your immune system
It is likely that a few of the hundreds of strangers on your flight is sick with a cold, flu, Covid-19, Long Covid, or Covid-like symptoms. Your nose, sinuses and esophagus are the first lines of defense against bacteria. Because of the dry air on a flight, the membranes can't protect the bloodstream from bacteria and viruses as they normally would.
This makes your immune system vulnerable and unable to protect you. No one going on vacation wants to arrive feeling tired, groggy and on the verge of getting sick!
You can prepare yourself before a flight by limiting the amount of caffeine, cocktail mixer and alcohol you consume and getting plenty of sleep in the days leading up to your trip.
In the event that you did not prepare, IVs are a great way to deliver the essential nutrients that you need before or after traveling. Some of these include Zinc, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D3.
Best IV Vitamin Drips for Travelers
Receiving IV vitamin therapy before (or after) traveling has many key benefits. After the nutrients are administered, you will notice a significant difference in how you feel:
- Replenishes the fluids in your body to decrease fatigue
- Delivers nutrients directly to your bloodstream for quick absorption
- Enables your body to more fully experience the benefits of vitamin C
At Drip IV, we recommend that travelers receive the Immunity IV or Hydration IV Drip.
Immunity IV Drip
The Immunity IV Drip is formulated to maximize the immune response of your body and protect it, so you can keep working hard and enjoying life. The Immunity IV nutritional drip contains B complex, a high dose of vitamin C and zinc, which both play a critical role in your body’s detox and natural defense system.
Receiving these key nutrients through IV therapy enhances their absorption, delivering them directly into the bloodstream, feeling the effects of the Immunity IV Drip working immediately!

- Protects from or fights viral and bacterial infections, the common cold, seasonal allergies, or the flu.
- Improves healing time from surgery

Hydration IV Drip
The Hydration IV Drip helps to balance your body with not only fluids, but electrolytes and antioxidants to enhance your physical and mental performance. When you receive just one hydration drip, you are receiving the hydration equivalent of 2 gallons of water.
Hydration IV includes vitamin C, electrolytes and B complex.
Benefits of Hydration IV and why Hydration IV is important:
- Restores hydration
- Prevents dehydration
- Prevention of arthritis
- Reduces heart disease risk
- Boosts the metabolism to burn calories faster
- Improves conditions causes by allergies and asthma
- Flushes out lactic acid to help recover from muscle soreness
- Detoxifies the body and reduces inflammation
Glutathione IV Therapy
Glutathione, a tripeptide consisting of three amino acids - glycine, glutamine, and cysteine, is an antioxidant that your liver produces. The group of amino acids collects harmful molecules in your body to neutralize them, restoring the immune system with additional energy and detoxifying your body.
Glutathione IV therapy delivers beneficial nutrients directly into your bloodstream by bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and ensures optimum benefits. Although you can get glutathione in several foods, oral supplements, and liquid forms, oral intake of glutathione is only covers 50% of the glutathione content. However, when you take glutathione drip intravenously, your body can absorb 90-100% of the glutathione content.
The major benefits of glutathione IV therapy include:
- Improving immune function and helping fight disease
- Reducing inflammation
- Detoxifying and fighting oxidative stress
- Improving the quality of sleep
- Helps eliminate toxins and break down fat
- Promoting high energy
- Promoting mental clarity
- Provides anti-aging properties
