IV Therapy vs drinking more water – is there really a difference?Jan 18, 2021

What is IV Therapy?

Intravenous Therapy has been around since the 1900’s but it was only in the early 2000’s that it became established outside of the hospital setting. The process of delivering vitamins, minerals and fluids intravenously is practiced worldwide and has become the standard of personal care for athletes, celebrities and everyday people like you and I.

Can’t I just drink more water?

Sure – everyone should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day however when your body is dehydrated due to illness, alcohol, bad diet or exercise. Sometimes water alone is not enough. 

The first sip of water can rehydrate your throat and large intestine but the rest of the body’s cells miss out on that little taste of heaven. I.V hydration therapy delivers the right water balance directly into your bloodstream so it can effectively transport the water where it is needed resulting in immediate rehydration.

What do you add to the IV Drip?

The Royal cocktail is fit for a queen, or a king, as the ultimate in IV care and the Customized is an a la carte approach to creating an IV Therapy that is the perfect lego piece for your deficiencies.

Can’t I just swallow my vitamins?

Taking a handful of vitamins daily can definitely boost your levels, however only about 20-30% of the vitamins actually make it to the cells that need them. The rest are excreted out as waste – what a waste! With IV Therapy the digestive system and liver are bypassed and the nutrients go directly into the blood which then delivers them in their most potent form.
