As the world learns to live with new diseases and threats, such as COVID-19, people are looking for more and more ways to keep themselves healthy and free from infection.
Besides frequently washing your hands, getting plenty of sleep, and eating a healthy diet, there’s one more technique you can use to help stay as healthy as possible: IV hydration therapy.
At Laguna Beach Aesthetics, Adrienne O’Connell, DO, and her expert team are dedicated to helping you stay healthy and strong. One of the best ways to do this is to boost your immune system with IV hydration therapy.
The secret of IV hydration therapy is in the delivery system. If you take an oral supplement, such as vitamin C, it has to first go through your digestive system. Unfortunately, your digestive system won’t absorb and distribute everything that goes through it. That means some of the supplement will exit as waste.
With IV hydration therapy, on the other hand, the full dose will enter your bloodstream. So if vitamin C is part of your hydration therapy, it will be fully available the moment it’s injected.
The benefits of IV hydration therapy with vitamin C
Combining IV hydration therapy with vitamin C can help you in a number of ways, including the following:
1. Boost your immune system
To stay healthy and fight infections and illnesses, your body needs key nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, such as vitamin C. IV hydration therapy can deliver these substances to fortify your immune system and improve your overall physical and emotional health.
In addition, when you’re healthy both physically and emotionally, your stress levels can improve. And reducing your stress levels can further boost your immune system and reduce your chances of getting sick.
2. Reduce inflammation
Your body is under attack by free radicals every day. These unstable atoms can damage your body on a cellular level, and they’re linked to disease and aging.
At Laguna Beach Aesthetics, we include antioxidants in our IV hydration therapies. Antioxidants play an important role in combating free radicals by reducing inflammation. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, and it plays an important role in protecting the body from free radicals.
In addition, IV hydration therapy can help support your body’s metabolic process. This means IV therapy can help repair damaged muscles and skin tissue and also help increase energy levels.
3. Better your performance
If your performance on or off the field has been suffering, IV hydration therapy offers a way to feel more energized and less fatigued. IV hydration therapy contains a special mix of vitamins — such as vitamin C — and minerals that can help build up your endurance.
This will help you perform at your best, whether it’s in the bedroom, boardroom, or on the field. As an added bonus, IV hydration therapy can aid your body’s natural healing process to help you recover faster.
4. Detoxify your system
We’re surrounded by toxins. They’re in the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the environment. Over time, toxins can build up in your system. This toxic buildup can leave you feeling tired, depressed, sick, and more susceptible to viruses and illnesses.
The good news is that IV hydration therapy can deliver key nutrients, such as vitamin C, to help you detoxify your system and stay well.
5. Lose weight
IV hydration therapy can help you lose weight by providing the hydration, vitamins, and nutrients you need to keep your energy levels up. With more energy, you’ll be able to work out harder and longer, and as a result, you should be able to burn more calories.
It can also help your metabolism operate at a peak level and thus help you lose pounds faster. Furthermore, IV hydration therapy can help you get better sleep. And because good sleep is essential for weight loss, IV hydration therapy can help you sleep better and lose pounds quicker.
