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 football season approaching and August being one of the hottest months (and peak hurricane season) of the year, Drip IV can help you prepare and replenish the water your body needs to stay hydrated this fall (on or off the field)!

Why Hydration is Important

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.

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.

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
  • less frequent urination (fewer than 4 times a day)
  • loss of energy

How you can reduce the risk of dehydration?

Drink fluids when you feel any dehydration symptoms and try IV vitamin infusions when dehydrated.

Drip IV for 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.

By receiving just one Hydration IV drip, our bodies are receiving the hydration equivalent of two gallons of water.
