When you think of IV Therapy, you probably think of a dramatic scene in an episode of a hot hospital drama where they rush the badly wounded patient into the ER and insert an IV. But IV Drips are no longer just used for the sick and wounded or for people going into surgery. IV Drips have stepped out of the medical field and into the public arena.

For the last six decades, IV Drip Therapy has gained popularity, used by celebrities and athletes to cure hangovers, improve performance, and combat aging. Today, you don’t have to be rich or be a star to get IV Drip Therapy. You don’t have to go to some fancy center or check in to the hospital.

You can find a menu of IV Drip Cocktails at salons, health, and wellness centers and even have them delivered to and administered at your home or place of business. Your provider can even customize an IV Drip Cocktail to suit your specific needs and goals.

7 Reasons Why We Love IV Drip Vitamin Therapy

The benefits of IV Drip Therapy are countless. We’ve chosen our top 7 favorites so that you can get an idea of what vitamin infusions can do for you.


1. Optimal Delivery System

Vitamin drips are one of the most effective ways to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and medications to the body because it bypasses the digestive system. The nutritional supplements are delivered directly into your bloodstream, which means that they are available to use immediately. Your body also absorbs them more effectively because your digestive tract hasn’t metabolized them.

When you take oral supplements or medications, your digestive system metabolizes them, which reduces the actual amount of vitamins, nutrients, and medication that make it to the bloodstream. An IV drip provides 100% absorption for maximum effect and minimal waste.


2. Increased Physical and Mental Wellness

Life’s demands can affect both your physical and mental wellbeing. Getting the exact amount of vitamins and minerals that your body needs are crucial, but it isn’t easy to achieve. IV Drip IV Vitamin Treatments delivers nutrients that the body can absorb and use immediately to support both your physical and mental wellbeing.


For example, IV drips that contain L-Carnitine or B-Vitamins boost your energy. Drips that contain Vitamin A support brain, skin, muscle, heart, and immune health. Depending on what supplements and vitamins are included, IV Drip Therapy can:

  • Improve immune health
  • Lift symptoms of depression
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Improve mental clarity and cognitive function
  • Reduce the symptoms of migraines
  • Relieve symptoms of asthma
  • Alleviate allergies
  • Combat fatigue
  • Accelerate wound healing
  • Maintain the strength of muscles and tissues


3. Prevention of Illness

No matter how hard you try to get it right, there are times in life when you do your best, but your best isn’t good enough. Stress, lack of sleep, and poor diet can all take their toll. A decrease in immune health makes you more susceptible to sickness. IV vitamin therapy, particularly the Myers Cocktail, delivers the nutrients your body needs to strengthen its immune system to more effectively fight off illness.

You will often see the following vitamins and minerals as part of an immune-boosting IV Drip Cocktail.


4.Hangover Reliever

Need a cocktail to soothe the hangover from those cocktails you drank last night? IV Drip therapy is the perfect antidote.

Alcohol dehydrates your body, depleting it of nutrients in the process. Tissues shrink, including your brain tissues, causing headaches and muscle aches. When you drink alcohol, your liver also generates toxins which add to your hangover discomfort.

IV Drip Therapy rapidly rehydrates the body because the nutrients are suspended in saline solution. Hydration relieves headaches and urinary and kidney problems associated with hangovers. The ingredients added to the solution are anti-inflammatory and help relieve pain.


5. Beauty Enhancer

You may have heard the phrase,” beauty begins on the inside.” This is true in more ways than one. If you want fresh, clear, toned skin, you need to cleanse your cells of free radicals that contribute to aging and tissue damage. There are many topical treatments on the market, which can be effective from the outside in, but only IV vitamin therapy delivers antioxidants directly to the bloodstream.

If you want healthy hair and nails adding B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C to your IV cocktail is the way to go. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production, which firms up the skin. A good Beauty Cocktail will also contain Glutathione which is a powerful antioxidant that fights off the physiological symptoms of aging and oxidative stress


6. Rapid Athletic Recovery

Even if you are feeling hyped up afterward, workouts exhaust your body. Not only do your muscles get fatigued during exercise, but free radicals start to build up.

IV cocktails that are redesigned for athletes flush out free radicals, promote healing, provide fast and thorough rehydration, and maintain muscle and tissues. They also contain amino acids, the building blocks of proteins that help decrease muscle loss, improve metabolism, and aid in the recovery and muscle-building process. The instant hydration and nutrient delivery from IV drips help athletes significantly reduce recovery time and improves performance.


7. Weight Loss Support

IV Drip Therapy can be customized to support you in your weight loss efforts. A Weight Loss IV cocktail is formulated with a unique blend of fluids, vitamins, and fat-burning compounds that help your body break down fat and help you burn calories faster. Now don’t get us wrong, IV Vitamin Therapy is not a weight loss solution on its own. It is most effective when used in conjunction with healthy eating and regular exercise.
