IV Rehydration

IV Rehydration

Feeling sluggish? Can’t seem to drink enough water no matter how hard you try?

IV vitamin therapy might be just what you’re looking for.

What Is IV Vitamin Therapy?

If you haven’t heard about IV treatment and vitamin therapy, it is the next big thing among people who strive to be active participants in their own health. People seek out IV vitamin treatments to feel more energetic, to use as a preventive measure when they feel they’re getting sick and even to infuse as a skin treatment.

IV vitamin therapy is safe if performed by a trained medical professional. Don’t trust just anyone to administer intravenous therapy. At New York Weight Loss and Surgery and New Jersey Weight Loss and Surgery, our trained medical staff can provide an IV vitamin infusion in a safe, effective manner that leaves you with peace of mind and feeling great.

Who Benefits From IV Vitamin Therapy?

Vitamin infusion cocktails are broadly useful for a range of people. Since they’re delivered with fluid, people who are dehydrated can rehydrate quickly. This can be especially beneficial to people who have certain health conditions and vitamin deficiencies. People who have had malabsorptive bariatric surgery procedures like Roux-en-Y gastric bypass are at risk for nutritional deficiencies, and an IV vitamin infusion will provide the vitamins they need for their bodies.

Common vitamin deficiencies include:

  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B12 and other B Vitamins
  • Zinc
  • Vitamin C

Anyone with one of these deficiencies can benefit from IV vitamin therapy in combination with a treatment plan developed by their physician or treatment team.

Finally, IV vitamin therapy can be used by anyone who wants to look and feel their best. A vitamin infusion may provide a jolt of energy when you’re feeling slow, or calm you down when you’re feeling stressed. The extra hydration may even help your skin glow.

How It Works

Sure, you could take a multivitamin—if you don’t mind waiting. But if you need an infusion of vitamins or rehydration right away, there’s just no substitute for IV therapy.

When you take a multivitamin, the pill must first dissolve in the stomach, where it is broken down by stomach acid. Then it travels to the small and large intestines where the vitamins are absorbed into the body. This process takes hours.

An IV vitamin infusion bypasses this process, delivering vitamins and fluid directly to your bloodstream. That means your body gets what it needs—fast. At New York Weight Loss and Surgery and New Jersey Weight Loss and Surgery we use a number of different infusions, including the popular Myers’ cocktail consisting of:

  • Vitamin B family
  • Vitamin C
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps revive or regenerate cells
  • Sodium Bicarbonate
