How IV Therapy Works

What Is IV Hydration Therapy?

From Miami to LA, Americans are discovering the incredible advantages of mobile IV hydration therapy. This common, low-risk procedure uses the same method employed by doctors, nurses, and paramedics to rehydrate, refresh, and restore the body. IV therapy allows rapid absorption of vital fluids and nutrients for everything from a hangover treatment to a workout boost. In short, it's the fastest, most efficient way to receive the vitamins, electrolytes, and hydration you need to start looking and feeling your best.

The Science Behind IV Hydration 

How Does IV Hydration Work?

Intravenous (IV) fluid drips deliver a combination of saline solution, vitamins, electrolytes, and health-boosting supplements through a small catheter directly into the bloodstream. The ingredients are absorbed and become bioactive virtually immediately, saving the hours of digestion needed to absorb nutrients via the gastrointestinal tract. Each IV formula is formulated to address specific health needs.

Components of IV Hydration: Saline, Vitamins, and Electrolytes

The three key components of every IV hydration package are essential for maintaining a healthy balance in your body.

  • Saline: Composed of sterile water and salt, a saline solution not only replenishes fluids fast but also acts as an effective carrier for vitamins, electrolytes, and any medications added to your IV bag. 
  • Vitamins: An IV vitamin infusion can help boost your body’s immune system, brain function, energy production, and more. 
  • Electrolytes: These essential minerals, such as sodium, calcium, and potassium, help regulate pH levels, maintain fluid balance, control the nervous system, support muscle contraction, and other vital tasks.

Safety and Efficacy of IV Drips 

Are IV Drips Safe? 

Yes! Our IV hydration therapy formulas are administered by a medical professional with appropriate training and proven experience in IV therapy. All medical personnel are licensed and certified by the state’s relevant certifying board.

Vitamin-powered IV therapy has been practiced safely for decades. In fact, IV therapy is the most common invasive procedure in healthcare, with more than 1 billion IV drips used worldwide every year. Our medical team can answer any specific questions you have about IV hydration before or during your treatment.

IV Therapy vs. Oral Supplements 

The Limitations of Oral Supplements and Medications 

IV fluids are faster and more effective than oral supplements and medications. Water and vitamins ingested orally must be digested and absorbed into the bloodstream before you start feeling the benefits. Age, activity level, illness, malabsorption issues, stress, and previous gastrointestinal surgery can influence how effectively your body absorbs supplements and medications when ingested orally. Other factors, like stomach flu, can prevent you from keeping oral fluids or supplements down—and that’s a problem when you need them for a fast recovery. Drinking alcohol also slows the absorption process, which is why oral hangover treatments feel ineffective.

Advantages of Direct Bloodstream Absorption 

IV treatments are administered directly into the bloodstream and immediately circulated throughout the body. Your body uses as much as it needs and excretes the rest for maximum effect. Since IV drips are delivered into your bloodstream, the saline, vitamins, and electrolytes introduced during IV hydration treatments become immediately available to your cells, significantly decreasing the time it takes for a medication or supplement to take effect.

The Immediate Impact of IV Treatments 

How the Body Utilizes IV Nutrients

Nutrients delivered by IV become bioactive upon entering the bloodstream, meaning the body can utilize them almost immediately. Rapid absorption means the body can begin rebuilding without the delay of digestion, allowing you to start feeling better as soon as possible.  

The Speed of Relief With IV Therapy

Expect prompt relief with IV hydration therapy. IV therapy generally lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour, and most patients feel better before the infusion is finished—some within minutes! Why wait for oral fluids or supplements to take effect when you can find relief quickly with IV therapy?
