Intravenous therapy was once an experience that was limited to emergency rooms and hospital wards and was used mainly to re-hydrate and deliver critically needed medications into the body as fast as possible. The same is true today, but the scope of use for intravenous delivery of medications has been broadened to include vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that simply weren’t considered before. IV infusions can be used for recovering after an illness, as an alternative treatment for a current illness or for extra energy and endurance.
Energy to Support Weight Loss Efforts
If you are trying to lose weight, you need to remember that your body needs important nutrients that provide you with energy to exercise and burn fat. You need to nourish the body on a cellular level, and vitamin infusions can deliver much-needed nutrients directly into your bloodstream for immediate absorption. These nutrients can vary, depending on the individual’s health needs, but some of the most commonly used in infusions for weight loss and energy include:
B12 is the primary vitamin that is responsible for turning the foods you eat into energy. If you are attempting to lose weight, this is one of the most important nutrients you will need to get you through your regular workout sessions.
Vitamin C is included in many IV infusions. Its antioxidant power is beneficial for strengthening your immune system and regulating free radicals in your body.
These are just two of the most common base nutrients for an IV infusion. IV infusions can be prepared for individual health needs, so the minerals, vitamins and other nutrients differ for each treatment.
Recover From a Hangover Faster
If you have ever had too much to drink, you know what it feels like the next morning. The headaches, nausea and fatigue can keep you home all day in bed feeling miserable. One of the main reasons for the way you feel has to do with dehydration and the loss of important electrolytes. Drinking forces you to urinate often, and key nutrients your body needs for its well-being are forced out. When these electrolytes and other nutrients are replaced, you will quickly feel better able to face your day.
