Vitamin hydration therapy, also known as IV vitamin infusion therapy, is a popular procedure that promotes the use of vitamins and other essential fluids to treat specific conditions and illnesses. It is given intravenously. Vitamins are usually taken orally, but with vitamin hydration therapy, a super-concentrated amount of vitamins is injected straight into the person’s veins. As a result, the vitamins reach the bloodstream quicker and are absorbed rapidly by the body. It is used by men and women. From Asia to North America, vitamin hydration therapy has gained widespread popularity due to its effectiveness and convenience. The procedure is usually completed in less than an hour.
Who Can Benefit From Vitamin Hydration Therapy?
The world you live in today can bog you down if you try to try to achieve too much in only a short amount of time. Overexerting yourself, physically or mentally, can lead to high-stress levels and cause you to feel tired and sick. When stress levels are compromised, a series of problems may occur. To battle stress, vitamin hydration therapy can help. Vitamin hydration therapy can also aid those who want healthier skin, are experiencing a bad hangover, suffer from a hormone imbalance, and have certain types of chronic diseases (like migraines, fatigue, depression, and allergies). In addition, it can work to speed up recovery time for injured athletes, and help those who want to boost their memory. It can help those who suffer from neurological diseases like Parkinson's Disease too.
When you are put in a certain situation that poses a threat or challenge to you, your body releases adrenaline to help you handle it. Adrenaline is a hormone that provides enough energy for you to get through the situation. Feeling stressed for too long can lead to some detrimental effects on the body. Stress can cause anxiety, heart issues, obesity, a decrease in sex drive, difficulty sleeping, acne, lack of focus, body pain, and irritability. Stress can also lead to a compromised immune system and cause more colds and cold sores to occur. Certain vitamins can help replenish your body’s defenses and decrease your stress levels. They are vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and omega 3s. Getting an IV infusion that contains these kinds of vitamins is beneficial in combating stress.
Vitamin B5 is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally found in foods, such as animal organs (liver and kidney), potatoes, broccoli, egg yolk, and milk. It plays a critical role in the production of Coenzyme A. Coenzyme A contains nutrients that are responsible for improving mood and energy. A deficiency in vitamin B5 can result in numbness and problems sleeping. Vitamin B6 is also a water-soluble vitamin that is responsible for creating neurotransmitters that are associated with moods. These neurotransmitters are serotonin, GABA, and dopamine. They are all chemicals produced in the body that makes a person feel good. Vitamin B6 is found in soybeans, fish, and whole-grain cereals. If an individual has a deficiency in vitamin B6, they will often experience low energy, skin rashes, mood alterations, and tingling and discomfort in the feet and hands. Vitamin C is useful in lowering stress levels because it can quickly breakdown cortisol buildup in the body. Cortisol is a stress hormone that is attributed to high blood pressure. Vitamin C can be found in oranges, watermelon, mangoes, parsley, and bell peppers. A deficiency in Vitamin C can cause pain in the joints, wounds that take a long time to heal, and dry skin. Omega 3s are fatty acids that can help battle anxiety. Anxiety can exacerbate a person’s stress levels. Omega 3s work to decrease adrenaline and cortisone levels in the body. Eating fish, like mackerel and sardines, will provide the body with a healthy dose of omega 3s. Those with a deficiency in omega 3s will experience skin problems, mood changes, and fatigue.
Vitamin hydration therapy works to improve a person’s skin. There several types of vitamins that can help a person achieve glowing skin results and feel younger. If you suffer from skin issues, like acne, flaky skin, and sagging skin, then these types of vitamins are helpful: vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, and B-complex supplements. Vitamin D is responsible for producing healthy skin cells and evening out a person’s skin tone. Vitamin D can be obtained by exposing bare skin to the sunlight and consuming foods, such as fish, eggs, and dairy. People who have a deficiency in vitamin D will have bone loss, hair loss, and muscle pain. Vitamin K improves the body’s blood clotting abilities and this helps to decrease blemishes on the skin. Blood clotting is important for healing wounds and bruises. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps destroy harmful UV rays that can damage and drastically age the skin. The sun naturally emits UV rays. If the body gets too much sun exposure, the UV rays can damage the skin. Vitamin E provides essential nutrients that protect and strengthen the skin. Foods that contain vitamin E are green leafy vegetables, seeds, and nuts. If you are not getting enough vitamin E in the body, you are prone to experience problems with your sight and weakness in the muscles. Vitamin K can help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, stretch marks, and scars. This vitamin can be found in vegetables, like spinach and green beans. A vitamin K deficiency will result in easy bruising of the skin and wounds that bleed excessively or do not heal properly. Vitamin B complex is made up of a series of B vitamins that promote the growth of healthy skin cells. This group of vitamins works to keep the skin safe from skin infections and reduces your chances of getting acne or blackheads. Foods rich in vitamin B complex are cheese, milk, brown rice, beans, and avocados. Those who suffer from inadequate vitamin B complex in the body often have pallid skin and feel very tired and weak.
People who consumed too much alcohol and feel awful the next day would benefit from vitamin hydration therapy as well. Drinking an excessive amount of alcohol over a short amount of time can lead to hangovers. The more alcohol you drink, the more likely you will wake up with a mean hangover. Hangovers may result in vomiting, nausea, headaches, fatigue, lightheadedness, diarrhea, stomach discomfort, fast heartbeats, feelings of great thirst, dry mouth, and shakiness. Vomiting and diarrhea can lead to dehydration since the body is expelling vital fluids, like electrolytes and water. Dehydration can cause the body to lose vitamins that are essential for optimal performance. Getting an IV vitamin hangover drip bag can help speed up the recovery process because the concoction is delivered straight into the bloodstream. The IV vitamin bag contains a mix of highly concentrated vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and water that gets rid of a hangover. Some typical ingredients found in IV vitamin hangover drip bag are saline, electrolytes, vitamin C, and B complex vitamins. IV hydration therapy is also effective for those who are afflicted with food poisoning. Food poisoning can cause symptoms similar to hangovers. The symptoms include sweating, vomiting, dehydration, and loss of appetite. After a food poisoning incident, the body is severely lacking much-needed fluids and vitamins. An IV vitamin infusion bag would be effective in replenishing the body of these deficiencies.
IV vitamin therapy can help individuals who suffer from a hormone imbalance. A hormone imbalance happens when there are too much or too little hormones coursing through the bloodstream. Having a hormone imbalance may affect the body in many ways. Bloating, infertility, blood sugar problems, moodiness, palpitations, and hair loss are a few of the symptoms experienced by those with a hormone imbalance. Hormone problems can be caused by external and internal factors. Examples of these factors include a poor diet, stress, exposure to pesticides and bad lifestyle habits. IV vitamin hydration is effective in replenishing nutrients that the body is craving. The necessary vitamins help balance out the hormone levels in the body. Vitamins that keep hormones balanced are vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Vitamin B3 has properties in it that help a person feel more relaxed and less stressed out. It gives them a better night’s sleep and helps with artery dilation (which can work to lower blood pressure). Vitamin B6 is known to lessen feelings of PMS, such as irritability and mood swings. PMS, known as premenstrual syndrome, is a condition caused by hormone fluctuations during the period between a woman’s ovulation and menstruation cycle. Vitamin D is known to treat hormone issues caused by a thyroid production problem. Vitamin E helps alleviate symptoms caused by menopause. Menopause is a female-related condition that occurs when the woman’s reproductive hormones start to decline and causes a series of uncomfortable side effects. These symptoms include hot flashes, loss of libido, night sweats, mood swings, pain while having sexual intercourse, irregular periods, UTIs, and weight gain.
Intravenous vitamin hydration therapy can also help those who suffer from chronic illnesses. People who have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or get constant migraines can benefit from an IV vitamin infusion. Having a low amount of magnesium in the body is one of the main causes of fibromyalgia. An IV vitamin infusion can provide the body with enough magnesium (and other vitamins that are needed) to combat the side effects of this disorder. Chronic fatigue syndrome can be treated with an IV infusion cocktail that consists of specific B vitamins and vitamin C. Migraines are very intense headaches that do not go away over time. Factors that may trigger migraines are stress, depression, and insomnia. Getting an IV infusion loaded with vitamin B6 and magnesium can drastically reduce feelings of throbbing head pain.
Types of Vitamin Hydration Therapy
The most popular IV infusion concoction that people order is the Myers cocktail. Some of the ingredients found in the Myers cocktail are calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. The Myers cocktail is effective in treating seasonal allergies, reducing symptoms of Fibromyalgia, and strengthening the immune system. Another well-known IV preparation is the Antioxidant IV Vitamin bag. This mixture is known to destroy free radicals in the body and decrease cell damage. Having healthy cells are important because they are responsible for how the body ages. The more healthy cells the body has, the less likely that serious diseases will develop. There is also self-improvement themed IV vitamin infusions that are often utilized by individuals. These types of IV vitamin mixtures are geared towards certain groups, like people who are looking to lose weight or wanting to boost their energy levels. Creating your personalized IV mixture of vitamins and minerals is another treatment option to consider.
