Why IV Hydration Therapy Is Better Than Taking Oral Supplements

86% of Americans take vitamins and supplements every day. Did you know your body only absorbs 10% of it? IV hydration therapy provides a 100% absorption rate for the quickest, most effective way to replenish your body’s vitamins for optimal health.

Are you part of the 86% of Americans who take oral vitamins or supplements every day? If yes, you’ve probably noticed that most supplements contain a waxy coating to make it easier to swallow, but it also prohibits your body from fully absorbing the vitamins.  

Tablets with added sweeteners make it difficult for your body to metabolize its contents. What these vitamin and supplement companies don’t tell you is that your body is only absorbing 10% of their products’ contents. 

Southern Secrets Medical Spa, located in Conroe, Texas, provides IV hydration therapy as a safe and more effective way to replenish your body with the vitamins it needs for optimal health. Here’s why it’s better than taking oral supplements. 

1. IV therapy provides a 100% absorption rate

IV therapy administers vitamins and fluids directly into your bloodstream through a small needle. This treatment bypasses your digestive track and provides a 100% absorption rate so you get the most out of your treatment.  

Not only does it have the highest absorption rate possible, but it offers the fastest way to hydrate your body and nourish it with essential nutrients. Most of our patients report feeling better within minutes of receiving treatment. 

Most IV therapy treatments take about 30 minutes. You relax in a reclining chair while one of our health experts administers your IV drip and monitors you from start to finish.  

2. Boosts your energy

Do you feel tired all the time? Do you experience brain fog? If yes, you may be depleted of vitamin B and amino acids, which are essential for building your body’s protein. 

One of our specialists can provide you with a blend including alpha-lipoic acid, B-complex, vitamin B-12, and vitamin B-9. This natural energy-boosting method provides you with the cleanest way to supercharge your energy — many patients feel lifted immediately after treatment with results that last for days, and sometimes weeks. 

3. Promotes better cardiovascular health

You might water daily, but are you getting enough? The Institute of National Academies recommends women drink 91 ounces and men drink 115 ounces of water per day. Nearly 80% of people aren’t drinking enough water, which can lead to a plethora of health problems. 

When you’re dehydrated, your body has a lower overall blood volume. Cholesterol levels increase as a result and can cause plaque buildup on your arterial walls. This allows your heart to get less oxygen and can put you at a higher risk of heart disease. 

Studies show that people who received a high-dose Vitamin C IV drip lowered their overall cholesterol. IV therapy comes in many different blends, with many of them having a good impact on your cardiovascular health. 

4. Experience beautiful anti-aging benefits

Not only does IV hydration therapy help you feel better, but it also allows you to look your best. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that comes in many of our blends and provides your body with a variety of anti-aging benefits. 

These include:

  • Flushing your body of toxins
  • Decreasing wrinkle production
  • Improving inflammation
  • Decreasing skin pigmentation
  • Promoting hydrated, supple-looking skin

In addition to glutathione’s beautiful skin benefits, many patients report noticing an improvement in their hair and nails. Ask your IV provider which blends are best for improving your skin’s health.
