What are the benefits of IV Hydration?

IV therapy delivers fluid, vitamins and minerals right to your blood stream, it’s a solution to rehydrate and distribute vitamins directly into your blood stream rather than ingesting them. When you ingest vitamins and nutrients they can be absorbed into your gastrointestinal tract and you need to ingest high doses of vitamins to have the same effect as IV treatment! That could result in upset stomach. IV therapy may be a beneficial solution for people with malabsorption conditions and other chronic illnesses.
