Why is it important to stay hydrated?

Our body is comprised of about 60% water, and the brain consisting of 73% water. Water helps our bodies perform vital functions, such as maintaining body temperature, and assists in circulation, absorption, digestion and the movement of nutrients throughout body. Staying hydrated is vital to general health and well-being.

Does it really work?

The process works by providing the user with a direct infusion of vitamins and minerals, like high doses of vitamin C or magnesium. Receiving vitamins through an IV allows the nutrients to bypass the digestive system. When drinking water, scientific studies have shown that it can take up to 2 hours to completely absorb 500ml of water.  Furthermore, your body can only absorb about one liter of water an hour from your GI tract.  So, if you are 3 or 4 liters dehydrated (which can easily happen during a hard night of drinking and possible vomiting,) it can take 6 to 7 hours to rehydrate via oral ingestion of water; versus 1 hour through an IV.

Can an IV serve as a pregame to certain conditions?

Yes! If you have an upcoming intense workout or athletic event, big night out celebrating, long work shifts, or travel our IVs can help get your body running at optimal level.
