When many people think of an IV, a hospital is the first thing that comes to mind. However, you might be surprised to learn that many people are experiencing the many benefits of IV therapy, including incredible revitalization and recovery.
How can visiting an IV clinic improve your health? Read on to learn more!
Before we move on to the health benefits of IV therapy and the different types available, it’s helpful to review exactly what IV therapy is and how it works.
IV therapy, also called IV drip therapy or IV hydration therapy, delivers vitamins, nutrients, and, sometimes, medications, directly into your bloodstream. This is the fastest way to deliver compounds to your body and ensures 100% absorption, so you get the maximum effect with minimal waste.
It’s administered by inserting a thin needle into your vein. The needle is inside a catheter which is taped to your skin to hold it in place. The process is usually painless, except for a pinch when it’s first inserted.
An IV bag with saline solution and an array of other compounds is hung high up in the air, which allows gravity to push the fluid down into your bloodstream. Generally, IV therapy lasts about 45 minutes.
There are many ways that IV therapy can improve your overall wellbeing. This therapy can also help to treat specific ailments.
Many people are vitamin deficient, which leads to an array of physical and mental health problems. Taking multivitamins can help, but, due to the metabolic process, your body always doesn’t absorb them efficiently.
IV therapy ensures that your body receives all of the vitamins and minerals it needs. When you receive this treatment, you’ll quickly notice that you feel better, are sick less often, and have greater mental clarity.
Other general health benefits include:
Some people also notice a reduction in allergy symptoms, improved wound healing, and improvement in asthma symptoms.
Other reasons that people are flocking to IV hydration therapy include:
A wide variety of people use IV therapy, including parents, executives, teachers, engineers, and more!
At Chicago Weight Loss Clinic, we have many different types of IV hydration therapy available that can help you reach your goals. This includes the following.
NAD therapy helps to protect brain cells, repair DNA, reduce inflammation, and promote cellular degeneration.
NAD is a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It’s naturally produced by your body and cycles between two forms: NAD+, which is active, and NADH, which is inactive (or oxidized).
When NADH is recycled back to NAD+, it creates a boost of energy. If this recycling stops, NADH accumulates in the cells and they run out of energy. IV therapy can restore NAD+, which creates many benefits including possible treatment for diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic illnesses.
NAD+ is also used in addiction treatment centers across the United States. It’s been shown to reduce cravings and create feelings of calm and contentment.
This infusion features a blend of IV fluids, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, and electrolytes. It helps to alleviate muscle pain, stress, fatigue, and chronic inflammation symptoms.
