Did you know that 31% of Americans have at least one vitamin deficiency? IV Hydration is a delivery method for vitamin fluids and medication administered through the veins. The fluid that contains these vitamins and minerals in a “cocktail” are given intravenously via an IV drip, which allows the infusion to move quickly through your bloodstream. Many health-conscious people enjoy IV Hydration as a way of getting the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and even medications they need to feel better in their day-to-day activities.
When you take a vitamin orally, it passes through your digestive system and gets broken down, which lowers the amount of vitamins your body can absorb (about 50%). This is because several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach including age, metabolism, health status, genetics and more.
With IV Hydration, the vitamins are instantly bio-available, so your body can absorb a much higher percentage (about 90%) of what it needs before passing the rest to your kidneys to be eliminated in your urine.
Common uses of IV Hydration include treating:

What are the risks of IV Hydration? The potential risks of IV Hydration therapy include, but are not limited to:
How often do I need IV Hydration? Prior to receiving IV Hydration at FVPS, we will have you fill out a screening questionnaire. This will not only determine if you are a candidate, but also provide information to help our providers craft a treatment plan custom to your needs and goals. The frequency that our patients receive IV Therapy ranges from an as-needed basis to weekly, depending on the extent of known vitamin deficiency.
What does IV Hydration feel like? IV Hydration is a comfortable process for our patients. You will be relaxing in a chair in a private room with a TV for the infusion. Feel free to pass the time on your personal mobile phone or iPad. You will feel a small prick when the needle is inserted, but that is the extent of any pain. There are not any uncomfortable sensations during IV Hydration.
What are the side effects of IV Hydration? There are no real side effects from IV Hydration aside from the very small chance of a rare reaction to the medications/vitamins. Your intake questionnaire that you fill out prior to having IV Hydration will assess this risk based on allergies and heart and renal disease. Excessive alcohol intake after an IV hydration can result in stomach irritation and other complications, and can lead to alcohol poisoning and other serious medical problems.
