IV Therapy (sometimes called IV Drip Therapy) is a medical technique that infuses the body with essential vitamins, minerals, and hydration. It’s a practice that is gaining popularity, particularly for its ability to quickly deliver customized nutrients to the body—completely bypassing the digestive system and fast-tracking the effectiveness of the treatment. It’s a surprising new therapy with some surprising life-balancing benefits.
1. Boost Immune Health
Your body’s ability to fight off disease can be compromised by a number of extremal and internal factors, including stress, lack of sleep, certain medications, and an improper balance of essential nutrients. IV Therapy can help your body clear away toxins, while also infusing it with immune boosting nutrients like ascorbic acid, zinc chloride, and Olympia Vita Complex. It’s a great way to feel better faster and supercharge your immune system.
2. Enhance Performance and Recovery
Whether you work out on a regular basis or just working to keep up with the busy nature of life, everyone can use a performance pick-me-up now and again. With a mix of ascorbic acid, Olympia Vita Complex, Olympia Mineral Blend, and an amino blend, IV Therapy can help to decrease your recovery time and enhance performance. IV Therapy can also help to hydrate the body and drain away unwanted free radicals that can accumulate as a result of exercise. It’s a great way to get back on your game, back to the gym, or back to life as quickly as possible.
3. Ensure Hydration
Proper hydration is essential to health. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, hydration helps to “regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly.” It also “improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.” Not getting enough water, on the other hand, can affect focus, make you feel tired, and is a major trigger of migraine headaches. Unfortunately, only 43% of adults drink the recommended four cups of water per day, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By infusing your body with saline and essential nutrients and vitamins, ensuring hydration (and preventing the negative effects of dehydration) is one of the principal benefits of IV Therapy.
4. Balance Metabolism
Your body’s ability to break down fat and burn calories decreases with age, stress, lack of sleep, the existence of certain hormones, and even the presence of stored fat. When combined with healthy eating and exercise, IV Therapy can be an important part of a well-designed weight-loss plan. By promoting hydration and infusing your body with an amino blend formulated to help your body burn calories more efficiently, IV Therapy can supplement healthy habits to burn fat, boost metabolism, and help you feel more energized.
5. Improve Cognition
According to a study published by Cambridge University, hydration levels affect cognitive function. More specifically, certain cognitive abilities and moods states are positively impacted by proper hydration. Conversely, dehydration can cause cognitive deficits in “short-term memory and visual perceptual abilities as well as mood disturbance.” In addition to ensuring proper and effective hydration, IV Therapy infuses your body with vitamin B12, L-Taurine, alpha-lipoic acid, and folic acid, the latter of which has shown to play a crucial role in brain development and even fend off Alzheimer’s Disease in older adults.
