Did you have a great night last night? Is this morning a different story? IV hydration is the solution that you need to help with a hangover.
Drinking too much alcohol causes dehydration and removes nutrients from the body. Hangovers are caused by a variety of factors including the direct effects of alcohol in the body, the effects of metabolites produced in the body, as well
as other chemicals produced in the body depending on the amount of alcohol consumed. Alcohol is a diuretic and its dehydrating effects are what cause most of the hangover symptoms experienced.
Symptoms of hangovers include:
Headaches and muscle aches
Excessive thirst / dry mouth
Nausea / vomiting / stomach pain
Increased sensitivity to light and sound
Anxiety / irritability
Hangover symptoms typically start when the blood alcohol content (BAC) gets back to “0.0” once alcohol has completely left the bloodstream. Hangover symptoms can last from a few short hours, all the way up to 24-36 hours. Shortening this recovery time can be achieved with IV Therapy. IV Therapy for hangovers is most commonly a mixture of IV fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, anti nausea, anti-inflammatory, and antacid medications to address the main symptoms. The combination of these fluids and vitamins rehydrate the body and replete the vitamins that were lost during drinking.
The vitamins, minerals, and medications achieve approximately 90% uptake through an IV compared to only 50% from oral intake (ex. drinking fluids and taking an oral pain medication). Additionally, the speed at which you will feel better is much faster with IV hydration because the fluids and ingredients go directly into your bloodstream because they bypass the digestive tract. This means that you can start to feel better in minutes, rather than hours (or days).
