Hydration Plus is an IV therapy that delivers vitamins, minerals, and, of course, hydration, in a form the body finds easy to absorb. At Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood, KS, Hydration Plus is just one of the IV therapies we offer, and it’s an excellent way to simply and effectively deliver refreshing and enlivening nourishment directly into the bloodstream.
Hydration Plus Details
A hydration infusion at Rock Creek Wellness gives your body an array of essential vitamins and minerals. A thousand milligrams of vitamin C will boost your immune system and help you feel refreshed. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6 and an array of minerals also go to work, supporting every bodily system.
In addition to delivering minerals and vitamins, a hydration infusion also gives you a powerful infusion of hydration, and this hydration gives you a lift much more effective than you can get from any drink. When you take a drink, the hydration first goes to the stomach and intestines, which absorb much of the water, leaving little for the other organs. By getting a hydration infusion, you cut out the middleman – your stomach and gastrointestinal system – and allow your bloodstream to send the hydration right to the organs and other tissues that need it most.
Cost and Time
Our Rock Creek Wellness Hydration Plus infusion costs $140 and takes approximately an hour. During that hour, you can relax in our comfortable office and allow your body some much-needed downtime, helping you feel even more refreshed.
Specific IV Therapy Benefits and Effects
Most people know they should be drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, but many of us struggle to fit that in. And while some drinks other than water can also be hydrating, many of the most popular drinks can actually work against healthy hydration. The alcohol we drink to relax at the end of the day and the caffeine we drink to get started in the mornings are liquids, but both can cause our bodies to release more liquid than they provide.
Bodies that are properly hydrated are better able to regulate their temperature, and their organs function optimally. Proper hydration helps the body fight infection, makes it easier for the circulatory system to send nutrition to the cells, and helps keep joints properly lubricated. When we are well hydrated, we also struggle less with low mood, we sleep better, and we even think better.
Most people know that vitamin C is important for staying healthy, and many people turn to supplements and fruits to get their vitamin C. These options do give us vitamin C, but they also have to go through the digestive system. Along the way, some of the vitamin is lost. There is really no substitute for delivering vitamin C directly to the bloodstream, where it can go right to work repairing damaged tissue, boosting immune function, and fighting free radicals.
The benefits provided by the B vitamin family are too numerous to list here, but there are some specific things to be aware of. Vitamin B1, for instance, plays a vital role in helping your body make use of carbohydrates and properly metabolize sugar. Our bodies need vitamin B2 to absorb nutrients, and we need to ingest this vitamin every day, as our bodies don’t hold on to any extra we eat. Vitamin B3 keeps our nervous system running well, and B5 helps us break down fat and carbs while supporting energy production. Vitamin B6 helps the central nervous system create neurotransmitters, like serotonin, directly affecting mood.
The magnesium in Hydration Plus is essential to over 300 bodily functions. Zinc supports the immune system, allowing the body to produce vital protein and properly copy its own DNA. Manganese is a trace mineral, and our bodies only need a bit, but it’s vital: it’s used in metabolizing protein, sugar, cholesterol, and carbs and helps our blood clot properly. Copper is needed by every tissue in the body and helps to make red blood cells, while selenium helps us think better and supports fertility.
