I have partnered with Smooth Aesthetics on this blog post to let you guys in on the secret weapon you never knew you needed for amazing energy, performance, immunity boost, recovery, and sleep … IV Hydration!!!
Everything you need to know about IV Hydration
Intravenous (IV) Hydration infuses vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into your body that allows 100% ABSORPTION. Many vitamins and minerals are not absorbed properly when taken orally, so administering these intravenously allows for maximum benefits and absorption.
Benefits of IV Hydration:
- Improve athletic performance & recovery
- Cures hangovers
- Improves your immunity
- Improves energy
- Reduce fatigue
Most of us are walking around dehydrated and deficient in major vitamins and minerals that are vital in keeping our bodies healthy. Everyone’s bodies are different, so the recommendation for IV therapy will vary between individuals.
My Personal Experience
I was always intrigued with IV hydration from being an athlete and knowing that I’m always dehydrated! I try to drink close to a gallon of water per day, but even then, I know I’m always behind. If you are thirsty, you are already behind on staying hydrated.
A few friends and I threw a hydration party (Covid safety protocols in place, of course) and everyone was able to select their own hydration cocktail as well as any extras. The IV itself took about 40 minutes to administer and it was a piece of cake. The catheter that is inserted in your arm is so small. It feels like a small pinch when it is inserted. I was a little sore the next day, but nothing major.
Oscar & Dr. Aarti offered a wide variety of vitamins and minerals I could add to my hydration cocktail and this is what we decided on:
Immunity Boost – 15 Grams of Vitamin C (because we gotta keep that Rona away!)
Glutathione – Glutathione is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant that assists with liver detoxification and helps to provide energy, boost the immune system, and improve skin health. It is commonly used by itself or in combination with other infusions to help with tissue building and repair.
Fast Vitamin IV Push by Koniver Wellness – 19 different vitamins, minerals, and amino acids (Full range of B vitamins including Niacinamide, Dexpentathol, Methyl B12, Magnesium, Tyrosine, Serine and Tryptophan) are pushed intravenously that can benefit you by providing an improved sense of mood, better sleep, improved exercise recovery and accelerated memory and mental acuity, and allows for more intense workouts. More info on the Fast Vitamin IV Push here.
Skinny Shots – This is an IM shot and was not in my IV cocktail. To read my blog about Smooth’s Skinny Shot, Click Here.
Other options available were: allergy relief, post workout, hangover recovery, migraine relief, B-12, and toradol. View their entire services menu here.
I trust the Smooth team because Dr. Aarti is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine physician Oscar is an MSN, RN, with experience in dialysis and PICCs. If you don’t know what a PICC is, it’s a catheter that gets inserted directly into your heart!
After my IV hydration session, I felt immediate results. I didn’t really know what to expect since I’d never done it before, but I feel amazing! It’s been about 4 weeks since my last session and I still feel like a million bucks! I am more alert, have more energy, my mood has been elevated, and to top it off, I am sleeping extremely well. I plan to implement more IV Hydration into my recovery regimen!
Throwing a hydration party would be really fun for small gatherings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, boat parties, and most importantly, HANGOVER parties!!Click Here to read more information on how IV Hydration can cure your hangover.
