IV fluids hydrate you faster than drinking water. Water is actually absorbed in the lower gastrointestinal tract, so it can take several hours after drinking water before your body feels the benefit. With IV fluids, the effect is immediate. The fluids and nutrients go directly into your blood stream, making you feel better faster.
Whether you are dehydrated from an intense workout, a stomach bug, or a night out with friends, your body needs electrolytes. It is vital that you not only replace water but also sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Given that you have an immediate need to get back up to speed, IV hydration with nutrients is the obvious choice.
Dr. Chiti Parikh, co-founder of Integrative Health and Wellbeing Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian, says some people are low on vitamins to begin with. “As per the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 10 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in certain vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, D, B6, B12 and iron, due to an unhealthy diet or a lack of proper absorption,” she explains. “In certain conditions, IV repletion of these vitamins and minerals can boost the levels in the body more rapidly. As these deficiencies are corrected, one might feel more energetic, clear-headed and notice an improvement in the texture of skin and hair.”
Boosters enhance the benefit of the drips. For example, Zofran can usually be given intravenously in order to eliminate your nausea and vomiting within 20 minutes. Toradol can be injected to provide headache relief.
