How IV Hydration Helps Your Hangover More Than Drinking Water – 2020 Update


The benefits of IV hydration for your morning hangover. 

After a heavy night of drinking, chances are you’re going to be hungover in the morning. Along with nausea, fatigue, and headaches, having a hangover will mean that you’re dehydrated. You may think that downing several cups of water is the best method to combat your morning hangover. While oral hydration helps to reduce the effects of a hangover, the best way to treat hangover dehydration is with IV hydration.

Here’s why!

IV fluids hydrate you faster than drinking water.

When you drink water after a night out, you may feel quenched instantly. However, that water is really just hydrating the tissues of your tongue, mouth, and throat. Water is absorbed much later in the large intestine, so it can take several hours after drinking water before your body starts to benefit.

IV fluids instantly rehydrate you. The fluids are infused directly into your blood stream, increasing your body’s fluid volume instantly. IV hydration helps you to feel better faster than drinking several glasses of water.

IV fluids can help with nausea.

One of the worst things about having a hangover is the nausea. You may not be able to keep any food down and drinking a lot of water may not be possible, either. The beauty of IV fluids is that they bypass your digestive system completely, helping you eliminate any trigger vomiting from consuming food or water. What’s more, anti-nausea and anti-heart burn medications can be added to the IV fluids to settle your stomach quickly and get you feeling bright again.

IV hydration provides electrolytes.

When you’re hungover, not only do you need hydration, but you need minerals like calcium, sodium, magnesium, and potassium. If eating is out of the question because of nausea, your best bet is to get IV therapy. The IV hydration contains saline as an electrolyte at the precise level your body needs, along with potassium and magnesium. This all-in-one solution helps you to get on your way to feeling your normal self again.

Supplements can be added to your IV hydration treatment.

When you have a cold or are hungover, an IV hydration treatment can help. IV hydration therapies offer a variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents to help you recover quickly and effectively. You can customize your IV cocktail to include anti-nausea drugs, pain relief, and antioxidants that act fast to leave you feeling better.

The next time you find yourself on the receiving end of alcohol’s consequences, consider receiving IV fluids to treat the hangover.
