So you went downtown last night and had a little too much fun.
You had a blast the night before but the next morning you wake up with a headache, dry mouth, nausea, and serious fatigue. All common signs of a hangover along with dehydration.
Many cure their hangovers with a cold Gatorade, glass of Pedialyte, or another type of hydration drink. Although all of these things sound good in theory, the best remedy is always going to be good ol’ fashioned water!
We don’t mean you should run to the faucet and chug a ton of water because the problem with chugging water is it can leave you feeling even sicker. The water you ingest has to make its way through your digestive system, which is usually already upset after last night’s shenanigans.
IV hydration therapy is so beneficial because you’re bypassing the intestinal tract entirely, so it can help substantially alleviate your hangovers without making you feel worse.
Why Does Alcohol Cause Dehydration?
Alcohol has a diuretic effect on your body. What does this mean? It causes you to urinate frequently.
Alcohol stops the release of an antidiuretic hormone called vasopressin. Vasopressin causes the body to hold onto water. When alcohol inhibits its use, you end up with excessive urination.
By suppressing the antidiuretic hormone, alcohol speeds up the diuretic effect leaving you that much more dehydrated.
How IV Hydration Can Help You Recover
IV Hydration Works Quicker
How many of you have said “I feel awful, I’m going to drink water all day long”, but then end up only drinking one bottle if you’re lucky?
The reason drinking water doesn’t work from the beginning for most people is that they simply don’t drink enough. It takes time to rehydrate the body after a fun night out with friends!
By using IV fluids for hangovers, you begin hydrating right away as the fluids go directly into your bloodstream and get you back to feeling better much quicker.
When you’re hungover and dehydrated it’s important to drink more than just plain water, make sure to add in some electrolytes — this is why so many people resort to Pedialyte or Gatorade to restore those key electrolytes that your body has lost.
However, the problem is these drinks are extremely high in sugar which will end up dehydrating you even more.
This is why IV Hydration drips are the easiest and fastest way to restore electrolytes in your body without the negative side effects of high sugar drinks.
Helps Reduce Nausea
Neither dry mouth nor fatigue compare to the agony you feel being nauseous after a night of drinking. For some people being nauseous can even mean they struggle to keep water down.
IV hydration is fantastic for hangovers and nausea because it bypasses your already sensitive digestive system along with adding in a powerful dose of vitamin B6 which is great for nausea!
