It’s the thick of summer, with temps reaching over 90 degrees, us Wisconsinites don’t fare well!
Hydration is key to feeling your best and continuing to have energy to stay outside. There are easy ways of keeping yourself at peak performance through the benefits intravenous (I.V.) therapy.
Here are nine of the key benefits hydration infusions deliver:
1. Efficiency at its BEST
Drinking fluids is not an efficient way to stave off dehydration. When you drink from a water bottle after a workout your digestive tract (mouth, throat, stomach, intestines) absorb most of the liquid. How can you supply hydration to all the tissues in your body? Chugging a lot of water will sufficiently hydrate yourself. Or you can quickly get the fluids directly into your bloodstream which delivers the fluids where you need them most. I.V. hydration is a faster, more efficient way to hydrate your body.
2. When water isn’t all you NEED
When your workouts are intense, you are losing more than just fluids. You also need to replenish your electrolytes and other lost nutrients. Drinking water doesn’t have the vitamins and minerals required to keep you going. Hydration I.V. infusions allows you to get immediately hydrated with what your body craves.
3. Your GUT will thank you
Drinking a lot of fluids can be hard on your digestive system. To effectively hydrate, often we need to drink a higher volume of fluids than your body can absorb at one time. Your digestive system must work overtime to get rid of the fluids it cannot process. When your body starts to try and get rid of the excess fluids, it can lead to you flushing out many of the nutrients your body needs. Supplements can also be irritating to your digestive tract. Hydration I.V. infusions allows your body to absorb nutrients and fluids without relying on the digestive system. It creates less waste than drinking fluids, and your body can retain more of the nutrients it needs.
4. Reduced Recovery Time
Hydration is critical to the recovery of your body. Whether you are tired after a long day at the office or ran 10 miles, you need to hydrate to restore energy levels. Fluids help you recover from a hangover faster. Because it is so efficient, hydration I.V. therapy helps your body recover faster than drinking fluids after you have been pushing yourself in a workout. The mixture of vitamins, nutrients, and fluids that you get with hydration I.V. therapy allows you to get back to feeling great in no time.
5. Hydration IV Therapy is Customized to Your Body
Hydration I.V. therapy can be completely customized to your body. You get the perfect mix of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients that you need to feel your best. You can have hydration IV therapy that focuses on:
· Immunity boosts
· Athletic recovery
· Migraine relief
· Increase energy
· Hangover recovery
· Skin, hair, and nail health
6. Immunity Boosts
Cold, allergies, body aches, sniffles! Hydration I.V. infusions can help you avoid many common illnesses by providing you with a quick and efficient dose of immunity-boosting compounds like Vitamin C, zinc, and B vitamins. I.V. infusions are an effective, direct route into your bloodstream, when compared to taking them orally.
7. Toxin Flush
Dehydration can lead to problems with your digestive tract, like constipation. Dehydration can damage your liver and kidneys and allow toxins to build up in your system. Orally drinking fluids often is too slow to allow your organs to get rid of all the built-up toxins. Hydration I.V. therapy flushes your body with clean fluids and helps improve the functioning of your vital organs. The liver and kidneys more efficiently work to filter out toxins in your body and then eliminate those toxins.
8. Improves Brain Function
At the earliest signs of dehydration, your brain begins to slow down.
By the time you experience thirst, you are already dehydrated. You don’t process information as quickly, and your memory may become impaired. Your brain needs to be well hydrated to work effectively. When you are well-hydrated, you make better decisions. However, the brain is one of the last places to get hydrated when you are only drinking fluids. Hydration I.V. therapy improves your cognitive functions much faster than just drinking water.
9. Improved Skin, Joint, and Muscle Health
Up to 60% of the body is water. When we are dehydrated, we immediately feel the effects of dehydration. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also all signs of inadequate hydration. Hydration I.V. therapy will rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of fluids and nutrients flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to full health. Hydration IV therapy helps you look and feel healthy, so you can always be at your best.
