IV therapy can boost energy levels, reduce pain, and improve the health of your skin. It can also boost immune function and help provide an overall feeling of well-being. Here are just three of the beneficial effects of IV therapy on your physical health.

1. Boosts athletic performance

If you are an athlete who trains hard every day to improve your performance, your body can start feeling worn down. You have higher nutritional demands to fuel your body to achieve performance levels and retain them. IV therapy offers the following benefits for athletes:

  • Restores hydration
  • Helps neutralize free radicals
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Promotes muscle building
  • Reduces muscle aches and promotes healing
  • Enhances focus
  • Boosts endurance prior to a workout
  • Boosts recovery post-workout

You can boost endurance and recover fast in the comfort of your own home with mobile IV therapy. Drip Hydration, Hydrate You, AZ IV, Theraptiva, and others offer home IV therapy. The top IV drip formulas for athletes include hydration, energy boost, and the all-inclusive formula.

The hydration IV is a blend of IV fluids and electrolytes. The energy boost IV also contains vitamins, such as B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. The all-inclusive IV includes everything you need to optimize your workout and promote recovery. Besides B-complex vitamins and vitamin C, it contains magnesium, glutathione and amino acids, which promote healthy muscle development and cell repair. Healthy muscle and faster cell repair mean you can recover quickly and start training again.

  • Hydration- IV fluids help keep the body and skin hydrated. Staying hydrated also enables the body to flush toxins that can cause skin issues.
  • Amino acids- IV cocktails that include a blend of amino acids help promote collagen production, which is vital to maintaining skin elasticity.
  • Vitamin C- Vitamin C has many functions that benefit skin, including:
    • Tissue regeneration- Vitamin C is used by the body to create blood vessels, skin, and tendons. It is necessary for wound healing as well.
    • Iron absorption- The body uses Vitamin C to help absorb iron, which is necessary for the health of skin, hair, and nails.
    • Antioxidant properties- Vitamin C also functions as a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing the free radicals that cause oxidative stress to skin. Vitamin C also helps protect cells from oxidative stress.
  • Glutathione- Glutathione is a naturally-occurring antioxidant in the body that helps fight oxidative stress. It is also necessary for the production of proteins, and has detoxifying properties.
  • B complex vitamins function as antioxidants and are used by the body for cell growth and repair.

When supplements are taken orally, typically the absorption rate is only 50%, with half of the vitamins being lost in the digestive process. IV therapy delivers these skin-nourishing nutrients to the bloodstream directly, allowing for an absorption rate of 90%.

3. Reduce migraines and headaches

Headaches and migraines can be debilitating and make it difficult to go about your daily activities. They may range in severity, frequency and symptoms, but in many cases, they can prevent you from having a normal life. If traditional treatments aren’t relieving the symptoms, IV therapy may help.

Prescription migraine cocktails involve blends of prescription drugs designed to treat migraine.

Non-prescription migraine cocktails may include blends of over-the-counter (OTC) medications to address migraine symptoms, similar to excedrin. Vitamin IV blends designed to aid recovery, boost immunity, and promote general wellness can also help relieve symptoms of migraines. Examples of vitamins typically found in migraine blends include:

  • Glutathione- Glutathione helps neutralize free radicals and promotes the breakdown of toxins that can trigger migraine attacks.
