One service we don’t talk a lot about but should is IV therapy. Now, you may be wondering what that has to do with what we do at Live Young Wellness Spa, and we can’t blame you. After all, IV’s are traditionally used in hospital or long-term care settings. But believe it or not, it is also a common part of treatment for other bodily needs, including immune support, and can help all of us look and feel our absolute best at any age.

There is no risk when administered properly, and the procedure is relatively painless (unless you despise needles).

IV therapy is a medical technique that delivers medicine, electrolytes, pain medication, nutrients, and other fluids directly to the bloodstream. Doing so leads to faster absorption into the bloodstream and better results for whatever your needs are.

7 Ways That IV Therapy Can Benefit You

Boost your immune system

Many people also don’t realize that their immune system doesn’t continue to work the same as it did when they were younger. IV therapy refuels your immune system by directly delivering medicine, electrolytes, pain medication, nutrients, vitamins (Vitamin C, B-Complex Vitamins, Glutathione, etc.), and other fluids to the bloodstream.

Doing so promotes faster absorption and healthy immune function. While it is impossible to prevent getting the cold or flu, a stronger immune system helps minimize your risk of exposure and shorten your illness’ duration.

Continue the Fight against Aging

There are countless anti-aging treatments and services. IV therapy is the perfect complement because of its ability to keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy and strong year-round. Here are some additional benefits:

  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Brighten skin and improve blemishes
  • Slow the aging process
  • Protect against damaging free radicals
  • Alleviate joint and bone pain
  • Improve heart health

Enhance Overall Wellness

Believe it or not, IV therapy also helps with anxiety, fatigue, and low energy. It can also combat depression, enhance mental clarity and cognitive function, reduce migraine and allergy symptoms, improve muscle and tissue strength, and accelerate wound healing. The list goes on and on, to be honest.

Weight Loss

IV therapy does more than just increase energy levels. It also gives your metabolism a much-needed pick-me-up. And as we all know, a healthy, strong, and fast-moving metabolism leads to weight loss. Granted, IV therapy cannot be used as a substitute for regular exercise and a healthy diet. But it can definitely make weight loss faster and easier when used in conjunction with healthier habits.

Cure Hangovers

Hangovers after a long night of celebrating with friends and family are the worst. While drinking lots of water the morning after can help, sometimes it’s simply not enough. IV therapy includes fluids, vitamin blends, and either anti-inflammatory drugs or anti-nausea drugs that are absorbed directly into your bloodstream to provide rapid relief.

Athletic Performance and Recovery

Serious athletes and even the most dedicated weekend warriors rely on IV therapy to help boost athletic performance and recovery. This includes B vitamins to maintain energy levels and zinc to ensure you don’t fall ill while training. Below are just a few more reasons why athletes of all ages can benefit from IV therapy:

  • Faster recovery
  • Endurance booster
  • Supported muscle recovery
  • Rapid hydration
  • Maintain healthy tissue and muscle

Nutritional Deficiencies

Many of us walk around every day with inadequate nutrition, whether because of poor diet or chronic imbalances in our bodies. IV therapy immediately injects vitamins, nutrients, and other feel-good fluids into the bloodstream to help combat any known or unknown deficiencies you may have.
