Clients always ask us questions such as, “Why is IV therapy necessary?” and “Why can’t I just drink more water to get the nutrients I need?” Let us tell you why…
Our bodies are already 55% – 65% water depending on our age and size. After losing just 1% of our body’s water, our mental and physical performance starts to deteriorate. After losing 2%-3%, we start to feel thirsty and dehydrated. So hydration is crucial just to get us through every day tasks.
What a lot of people don’t know is that water also acts as our own personal bodyguard. It protects our body tissues against any blows when we are active. Water also enhances the function of nerve cells and protects them from thousands of chemical reactions. Additionally, it helps in the smooth movement of our joints and allows their surfaces to slide and glide with minimal friction. Without water, movement of any joint becomes stiff and painful.
By now you realize that water consumption is incredibly important. But below I will explain why IV Therapy is much better….
IV fluids hydrate you much quicker because the nutrients and vitamins go directly into the bloodstream, as opposed to being digested first. Fun fact: That’s why we get IVs when we are admitted into a hospital.
Thirst and dehydration (even in the simplest form that many people unknowingly suffer from everyday) is a complex physiological state. When we are dehydrated, and therefore chug water, fluids are actually absorbed into the lower gastrointestinal tract. Though this is the case, the effectiveness of quickly drinking water when dehydrated is reduced by the distance it has to travel and the amount that is actually absorbed.
IV therapy is a minimally invasive technique used to get naturally occurring compounds into the body in a way that is far more therapeutic and effective than taking the same supplements orally. Many vitamin, mineral, and amino supplements are not well absorbed by the gastrointestinal system. IV therapy is a way to bypass the barriers preventing adequate absorption and achieve therapeutic levels of nutrients. IV hydration bypasses this whole ordeal by working through the circulatory system, which is known for absorbing nutrients faster and more efficiently as it delivers nutrients right into the body. Every IV bag comes with electrolytes and important vitamins and minerals and there really is no comparison. If there were, hospitals would be handing out bottles of water instead.
Whether you are training to be an Olympic champion or just want to have the best work performance in the office, there is a package of vitamins and minerals fit just for you.
