IV Hydration Q&A

What is intravenous (IV) hydration? 

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy has grown in popularity over the years, treating everything from jet lag and hangovers to chronic fatigue. During the treatment, a catheter in a vein in your arm delivers a liquid mix of minerals and vitamins into your bloodstream. 

Your bloodstream absorbs the solution directly, producing greater absorption levels of the vitamins and minerals than you might get from food or oral supplements. These greater levels lead to higher absorption into your cells, aiding them in combating illness and maintaining health. 

Before an IV hydration session, your provider will assess your needs and formulates the specific minerals and vitamins in your solution.  

What does IV hydration therapy treat? 

IV hydration therapy can treat both temporary and chronic conditions in men and women of all ages. Some of these include: 

  • Dehydration 
  • Hangovers
  • Jet lag
  • Athletic recovery 
  • Migraines and headaches 
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory infections
  • Fatigue (chronic or current)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sleep or mood issues
  • Thyroid disorders

IV hydration is safe for almost all, but be sure to discuss with your provider if you have heart disease or kidney problems that would affect your body’s fluid and salt consumption. In general, you should avoid excessive levels of vitamins and minerals, which can be hard on your organs. 

Which nutrients and minerals can IV hydration therapy include?

Depending on your needs, your provider may recommend of a combination of the following nutrients, like: 

  • Vitamin C and D
  • B vitamins 
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc 
  • Copper 
  • Antioxidants like glutathione

The right IV solution will depend on your ailments, medical history, and body composition.

What happens during IV hydration therapy? 

After a comprehensive exam and once your provider has decided on the right nutrients and minerals for the therapy, they place a small catheter into a vein in your arm. You then begin to absorb the solution into your bloodstream. 

The appointment takes 20 minutes to an hour, depending on your needs, and can provide immediate results. Your provider will be with you throughout, monitoring the therapy. 

You may have slight irritation at the injection site, and any side effects are rare. Be sure to stay in communication with your provider in case you experience any abnormalities after the therapy.
