Why Hydration IV is Important

Why Hydration IV is Important

Nearly all of our body’s major systems depend on water to function and survive. However, it only takes 45 minutes for a person to become dehydrated at 90 degrees Fahrenheit. For those of you that live in the South, you know that it remains this temperature most of the year!

With summer quickly approaching, that means the hottest days are just around the corner! Drip IV can help you prepare and replenish the water your body needs to stay hydrated!

When you're hydrated, your body works better because your brain cells receive the nutrients they need to function smoothly and effectively. It is recommended that people drink 11-16 cups of water a day in order to stay hydrated.

Hydration is important for our bodies as it is crucial to regulating body temperature, keeping our joints lubricated, preventing infections, delivering nutrients to cells, and keeping our organs functioning properly - especially for those participating in rigorous body competitions, such as Stark Naked.

Staying hydrated plays other critical roles in our day-to-day lives, including improving our quality of sleep, cognition, our mood, and even helps when traveling.

Each day, you lose water through breathing, sweating, bowel movements and urination. For this reason, we have to replenish our bodies' water supply with beverages and food that contain water.

What Are Signs & Symptoms of Dehydration?

Being dehydrated means our body loses more fluids than we take in. In a case of being dehydrated, it can worsen and potentially result in a serious problem.

The shortage of fluids in our bodies while being dehydrated can result in a number of effects. Dehydration signs and reactions in adults include:

  • feeling extremely thirsty
  • dark yellow and strong-smelling urine
  • less frequent urination (fewer than 4 times a day)
  • feeling dizzy, lightheaded, confused or fatigued
  • dry mouth, lips and eyes
  • loss of energy

How Can Drip IV Help With Dehydration?

IV vitamin infusions immediately deliver 100% of each vitamin into your bloodstream, giving you a much higher concentration of vitamins than you would orally. The Hydration IV rapidly replenishes fluids in your body in ways that drinking water can't. 

Hydration IV therapy helps balance our bodies with not only fluids, but electrolytes and antioxidants to enhance your physical and mental performance. Several vitamins aid in hydration including vitamins A, C, and E. While there are over-the-counter vitamins that contain these nutrients, infusion therapy ensures a higher percentage of absorption of the nutrients your body needs.

Hydration IV Benefits

Hydration IV includes vitamin C, electrolytes and B complex.

Potential Benefits of Drip IV's Hydration IV:

  • Restores hydration
  • Prevents dehydration
  • Prevention of arthritis
  • Reduces heart disease risk
  • Boosts the metabolism to burn calories faster and help lose weight
  • Improves conditions causes by allergies and asthma
  • Flushes out lactic acid to help recover from muscle soreness
  • Detoxifies the body and reduces inflammation

Hydration IV therapy is beneficial to patients with moderate to severe dehydration.

Hydration IV Therapy for Pregnancy

Feeling your best while pregnant has a lot to do with staying adequately hydrated during your pregnancy. It can be a challenge, especially on a busy day, to drink the recommended amount of water (8 to 12 glasses of water daily).

Drip IV offers saline drip IVs to stay hydrated during pregnancy!

IV saline can also help with morning sickness, dehydration, and those suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum during their pregnancy.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe form of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that can lead to dehydration, weight loss, and electrolyte imbalances. Dehydration can not only interfere with the health of a mother, but also with the growth of the baby.

IV therapy can be helpful in managing morning sickness and hyperemesis gravidarum by providing bioidentical fluid (i.e. saline) directly into the bloodstream. This helps to rehydrate the body and replenish essential nutrients that may be lost due to vomiting.

Benefits of Hydration IV during pregnancy:

  • Mitigates morning sickness
  • Minimizes Nausea
  • Increases Energy
  • Keeps your body temperature cooler
  • Softens Skin
  • Decreases constipation
  • Decreases risk of urinary tract infections

Saline for Hydration

Saline IVs are commonly given to patients as an IV when they require hydration. IV bags filled with saline solution are one of the most common solutions used in hospitals, containing a simple concoction of salt (sodium chloride) and water.

Saline IV Therapy is a safe and more effective way to recover from dehydration quickly during pregnancy.

We also offer IV bags of saline without vitamins for our customers. IV bags of saline are sold for $40 to non members and $30 for members.
