IV Drips used to be associated with hospitals and those recovering however, IV hydration has more benefits them people realize! You'll discover below why IVs are not only faster but FAR better than traditional forms of taking medication or vitamins.
A weird Truth About Oral Medication
The truth is, oral medication is only absorbed up to about 50 percent and some even less! There are always exceptions, but stomach acids are quick to dissolve and break down vitamins or medications which leads to a decent percent not making it out of the stomach in time.
Therefore, you only get some of your daily recommended vitamins. Not to mention, the steep concentration alarms your body. the liver and kidneys can only absorb so much at a time. This can dehydrate your body as it now has to pass this excess concentration out of the body, usually through the urinary tract.
As an alternative to slow, oral medication. IV hydration therapy is a way of getting the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even medications straight into the bloodstream bypassing the digestive system. Your blood vessels immediately spread the hydrating fluid throughout your body. Cells can absorb what they need and the rest continues its journey till every last nutrient is used and your kidney then passes a much smaller amount without wasting any of the body's water.
With so many kinds of vitamins and supplements available, IV therapy can deliver a range of health and wellness benefits
Promoting faster weight loss
Curing hangover symptoms right away
Treating unique nutrient deficiencies
Purifying your body of toxins and free radicals
Boosting your energy levels
Promoting better cardiovascular health
Easing anxiety and promoting relaxation
Boosting recovery and pain management
Let’s discuss each of these benefits in more depth and provide you with the supplements that help our clients achieve that particular wellness goal.
IV Drips for Effortless Weight Loss
It’s no secret that losing weight can be hard. This is why so many people turn to IV therapy to boost their weight loss efforts. The three key complexes we use at Easycare IV Hydration Lounge that aid the weight loss process are:
B-12 boosts metabolic functions which increase energy and burn more calories. With more energy, sugary drinks and caffeine cravings will be significantly lower. It can also improve memory and even help prevent heart disease. It also helps you make DNA and red blood cells!
MICC stands for Methionine, Inositol, and Choline.
Methionine is an amino acid that plays an important role in lipid metabolism and increased energy levels.
Inositol is a carbocyclic sugar that improves cellular function and can accelerate weight loss and reduce fat mass
Choline is an essential nutrient that breaks down fat as an energy source and supplements rapid fat and weight loss
Lipotropes are compounds that can help your body break down fat during metabolism. Lipo C IV therapy includes three separate lipotropic agents that, when combined with exercise and a healthy diet, can have synergistic benefits to promote fat and weight loss.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant found in every cell in the body. This organic compound also works with the body’s mitochondria to boost metabolism, prevent inflammation, eliminate toxins, and reverse some of the oxidant (free radical) damage related to aging. Our bodies naturally synthesize this compound but only in small amounts. Thus, an IV infusion with this supplement can promote higher metabolism.
IV Hydration for Hangover
Not only are hangovers painful and annoying, but they are also associated with poor job performance and conflict at work. Thankfully, our IV Cocktail helps quickly resolve common hangover symptoms such as:
Headaches or muscle aches
Brain fog or fatigue
Nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain
IV fluids that help replenish the water you lost when drinking too much the night before. They also contain electrolytes, most commonly in the form of sodium chloride, which help relieve symptoms of dehydration, including fatigue, dizziness, and thirst. Many people start feeling relief after only one hour of their IV treatment!
IV Vitamin Therapy for Nutrient deficiencies
IV is an effective treatment for certain health conditions that can cause nutrient deficiencies, such as:
Short bowel syndrome
Oftentimes, people living with these conditions cannot get the nutrients they need from oral supplements or their diet. Thus, IV therapy benefits them because it bypasses the digestive system entirely and provides nutrients to cells immediately. Want to learn more about our IV solutions?

IV therapy to Cleanse Body of Unwanted Toxins and Free Radicals
Besides curing hangovers and providing you with essential nutrients, IV drip therapy can also cleanse your body of toxins and free radicals that can damage cells and DNA. Since antioxidants keep toxins and free radicals in check, the most popular options in IV therapy include:
VIT C: Saline & 2500MG of Asorbic Acid
Needing no introduction, Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant that protects your overall well-being and immune system. It also helps protect your body from free radicals by neutralizing them before they have the chance to damage cells.
Pearl: Saline & 2500MG of Glutathione
Another important antioxidant that helps lower oxidative stress (free radicals), glutathione also has a plethora of other health benefits. It has shown promising results for improving symptoms caused by conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and fatty liver disease. It may also fight infections and cleanse the liver of unwanted toxins that can damage liver cells.
ALA: Slaine & 100MG ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID
More than just a weight loss aid, it can also protect your body from cell damage caused by free radicals. It's also used extensively for nerve pain and people with diabetes. A few other benefits are weight loss, skin health, and high levels of cholesterol.
