Visit BodyTonic Cleveland for your IV hydration therapy boost
You’ll no doubt have heard of it. And not only because it’s become a firm favorite with all kinds of celebs, from Adele to Jane Fonda and (no surprises) the Kardashians… but because IV hydration therapy is one of the biggest trends to have hit the health and wellness industry in recent years, thanks to its speed, simplicity, and the many benefits it provides to your overall health and vitality.
Utilizing the IV drip we’re all familiar with from hospitals and adapting it to serve as a means of delivering a big burst of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and essential fluids directly into the bloodstream, this treatment is as beneficial to your overall wellbeing as it sounds.
If you’re looking for somewhere you can reap the benefits of IV therapy in Cleveland, look no further, as we’re proud to offer this revitalizing treatment at BodyTonic.
Or if you’re wanting to know more about IV therapy first, read on… we’re going to explain all about what it is, the many benefits it provides, and more.
What is IV hydration therapy?
IV therapy involves receiving high concentrations of vital nutrients and minerals directly into the bloodstream, allowing for rapid and efficient absorption – far more so than anything possible via food or supplements.
Unlike oral intake, IV therapy bypasses the digestive system and delivers these nutrients straight to your organs, meaning +90% are being absorbed by the body rather than the approx. 50% absorption rate of anything taken orally.
The premise behind IVs is that they can quickly and effectively top up anything your body is lacking, which makes perfect sense when you think of the high usage of IV drips for medical needs.
However, when it comes to IV hydration therapy, there are no drugs or medicines involved. It’s all vitamins, minerals, and natural vital nutrients that our bodies need, yet often lack. And by delivering them directly into your bloodstream, you can relieve a huge range of symptoms – both in the short-term (such as curing a hangover!) or the longer-term, such as boosting your overall immunity or sharpening your mind.
The Myers’ cocktail: a potent IV therapy treatment
The original and best-known type of IV vitamin therapy is the Myers’ cocktail, named after Dr. John Myers – the first person to develop and administer IV vitamin drips back in the 1960s. Yet, despite Myers pioneering it all those years ago, it´s only relatively recently that IV hydration therapy has been adopted as a mainstream wellness treatment.
While the full extent of IV therapy benefits are still being discovered, the Myers’ cocktail, which is the IV hydration therapy we offer at BodyTonic Cleveland, is a powerful blend of vitamins and minerals known to be capable of optimizing your health and wellbeing.
Containing B-complex vitamins, vitamin B12, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium, it´s a potent bag full of essential nutrients, and it provides a range of benefits that set the Myers’ cocktail apart from other IV treatments.
Benefits of IV therapy and the Myers’ cocktail
Perhaps most famous for helping to ease hangovers or increase energy levels, IV therapy actually comes with far bigger and better benefits than only those…
Here are our favorite 8 benefits of IV therapy:
1. Increased hydration
Thanks to its saline and electrolyte solution base, IV therapy immediately increases your hydration levels as it delivers hydration straight to your cells – providing fast recovery from dehydration, and helping your body remain properly hydrated… which, as we know, is not only vital for our bodies to function properly, but is key to looking and feeling our best, too.
2. Boosted energy and vitality
Nutrients and minerals such as B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium all play crucial roles in energy metabolism and overall vitality, so by replenishing these essential nutrients, the Myers' cocktail can instantly revitalize your energy levels and help you feel more vibrant and alive.
3. Stronger immune system and relief from colds and flu
The Myers' cocktail is packed with immune-boosting vitamins and minerals (the mighty vitamin C in particular) that strengthen your body's natural defense mechanisms, making it a powerful tool for beating a bad cold or bout of flu, as well as warding them off in the longer term.
4. Skin rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits
B and C vitamins are especially well known for their benefits to the skin, and this powerful duo helps stimulate collagen production, enhance skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and protect your skin against environmental damage. While most skin rejuvenation treatments focus on preventing or repairing damage to the exterior layers of our skin, IV therapy is a truly potent means of promoting healthy skin from within!
5. Faster recovery from hangovers and jetlag
One of the better-known benefits of IV hydration therapy is its ability to alleviate hangover symptoms, but good news – it’s also effective on jetlag! By rehydrating your body and replenishing essential nutrients, IV therapy can quickly relieve headaches, fatigue, and dehydration caused by a few too many drinks or a long flight.
6. Relief from chronic fatigue, pain, migraines, and more
Containing nutrients that are known, amongst other things, to help reduce inflammation and improve the functioning of muscles and nerve cells, IV therapy can offer some much-needed relief for a range of illnesses that include chronic fatigue, migraines, fibromyalgia, asthma, diabetes, and much more!
7. Alleviating stress and balancing your mood
You may not realize it, but vitamins and minerals play a key role in regulating our mood, with anxiety, depression, and stress all affected by a depletion in core nutrients and hydration. This means that the highly concentrated boost of vitamins and minerals from IV therapy can have a profound impact on your overall mood, and noticeably reduce stress symptoms.
8. Combatting brain fog and sharpening the mind
Brain fog, tiredness, poor memory, and all other cognitive issues are just as affected by low levels of minerals, vitamins, and hydration as every other aspect of your body. So by replenishing these essential nutrients, you’re enabling your body to optimize all of its core functions – and a clearer, sharper brain is no exception!
Essentially, IV hydration therapy is the ultimate way of restoring balance to your body. A peaceful treatment that involves sitting for 30 minutes while these nourishing nutrients are absorbed by your body, it can be done as often as once a week, or simply as an occasional boost to your overall wellbeing.
So whether you're recovering from illness, experiencing nutrient deficiencies, or simply seeking a bit of a pick-me-up, IV therapy is a great way to rebalance your system.
Who can benefit from IV therapy?
One of the reasons IV therapy has become so popular is that it’s a safe, quick, painless, and immediately beneficial treatment that is suited to the majority of people – which makes sense, given that we’re simply talking about boosting your body with vitamins, minerals, and other good-for-you nutrients.
As with every other type of treatment we offer, it’s important to have a full consultation beforehand, as there are a few instances in which IV therapy won’t be suitable – such as for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or people with kidney, liver, or heart conditions.
But if you’re looking to optimize your health, recover from an illness or strenuous activity, relieve certain ongoing symptoms, or simply boost your overall wellbeing, chances are you’re going to be suited to, and love, IV hydration therapy.
