Hangover and dehydration are the price you pay for excessive alcohol consumption. Cotton mouth and extreme thirst prompt most people to guzzle water to get rid of hangover symptoms. But chugging tap water is not the fastest or most efficient way to rehydrate. You may experience temporary relief, but it can take six hours or longer for your body to absorb enough water through your GI tract to totally recover.
If you have a busy day ahead and need to be on your feet and out the door as soon as you wake up, intravenous IV hydration therapy offers a fast and convenient solution. Let’s consider some key reasons why IV therapy is the fastest way to rehydrate from a hangover.
Direct Pathway for Fluids
Water instantly hydrates your mouth and GI tract, but it takes several hours to replenish all your organs and tissues. Studies have shown that it takes 2 hours to fully absorb half a liter of water. Considering that your body needs 3-4 liters, you will not be fully hydrated for at least 6-7 hours. Your hangover symptoms will linger into the afternoon and evening, affecting your performance at work and ruining your day.
An IV cocktail is infused directly into your bloodstream, so fluids immediately go to work to hydrate depleted cells, and you begin to feel better sooner. An IV drip in the morning lets you arrive at your workplace refreshed and full of energy.
It can be frustrating when you feel thirsty but large amounts of water make you feel worse. Thanks to the imbalances caused by yesterday’s drinking, your stomach struggles to absorb food and fluids, rejecting it and making you feel nauseated. Trying to replenish your body’s depleted energy with a large breakfast and coffee may even make you vomit.
An IV hydration cocktail bypasses your digestive tract and prevents nausea. Your digestive function will quickly be restored after IV drip therapy, and you will be able to enjoy a meal with your favorite drink. Along with a saline solution, your hangover cocktail includes anti-nausea medicine to accelerate the recovery process.
Alcohol flushes not only water but also electrolytes from your system. Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals that help you maintain normal fluid and acid-base balance. They transmit nerve signals throughout your body, regulate your heartbeat and muscle contractions, facilitate blood clotting and help build and repair body tissues. Electrolyte depletion can lead to irregular heart rhythms, muscle weakness, fatigue, confusion, blood pressure changes and seizures.
Drinking water alone will not replenish electrolytes. An IV drip infuses calcium, sodium, magnesium and potassium into your bloodstream to restore optimal electrolyte balance.
A Hydrovit IV cocktail at Advanced Cryo NYC contains a well-balanced formula specifically designed to address hangover symptoms like headache, nausea, fatigue and dehydration. Hydrovit delivers the exact amount of antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins, anti-nausea medicine and anti-inflammatory agents to treat your hangover and restore normal function..
Similar nutrients and medications can also be taken orally, but they can upset your stomach and make your hangover symptoms worse. Intravenous drip therapy helps you avoid vomiting and ensures that nutrients are delivered quickly to cells throughout your body. After an IV cocktail, it usually takes from 20 minutes to an hour to get rid of hangover symptoms. You would have to wait hours to recover with just water and over-the-counter drugs.
An IV cure cocktail provides the fastest possible hangover relief and lets you get back to your normal life within an hour or so. You can relax and have a fun night on the town, knowing that Hydrovit is available if you need it.
