Hangover IV Treatment

Hangovers are caused by an overconsumption of alcohol.. Alcohol, contains a toxin called ethanol. Ethanol is a diuretic, which causes dehydration in the body. Science has yet to figure out the tipping point of exactly how much alcohol needs to be consumed to trigger a hangover, but it is said to be somewhere around the point where your blood alcohol content reaches 0.1. Once your blood alcohol content decreases back to 0, which is usually around the time you wake up the next day after a night of drinking, this is when the symptoms of a hangover usually begin, and unfortunately, the more you drink, the worse you will feel the following day.

Thankfully, the horrible feeling of a hangover can be help be alleviated using the Hangover IV cocktail from Drip IV Therapies. To explain why this treatment is effective it’s important to first understand the symptoms of a hangover.

Common Hangover Symptoms

Hangovers include a variety of symptoms including:

  • Excessive thirst
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle pain
  • Vomiting/nausea
  • Dizziness and a feeling of vertigo
  • Tremors
  • Issues with your mood
  • A rapid heartbeat
  • Poor concentration
  • General weakness of the body

Alcohol not only depletes the body of its necessary fluids, but it also contains toxins, both of these have very negative effects on the organs in the body.  Dehydration causes dry mouth, extreme thirst, and fatigue because it is the body’s way of letting you know it needs to be replenished with fluids in order to carry out optimal body functions. Alcohol is known to be a vasodilator, which means it causes your blood vessels to relax, allowing more blood flow to the brain, this paired with loss of fluid from the frequent urination is the reason you get headaches when you drink.  It also causes an increase in acid production in your stomach, which irritates the stomach lining causing nausea and vomiting.

How Does A Hangover IV Treatment Help?

The symptoms of a hangover generally go away on their own within a day or two with rest and fluids, but a Hangover IV Treatment can help them fade away faster.
A hangover can be nursed with the right elements – but how does this work? It all comes down to the contents of the Hangover IV drip. Each drip contains the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B12
  • B Complex Vitamins
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Vitamin C

Vitamin B12 aims to keep the brain and nervous systemhealthy. It is also commonly used to help combat fatigue, muscle weakness,heart palpitations, and boost your mood. All of these are frequent hangover symptoms. By getting a concentrated dose of B12 straight into the bloodstream it counters these troublesome symptoms.

The B Vitamin Complex contains all eight B vitamins. All of the B Vitamins play their own roles in helping the body function and aid in regulating energy levels and digestion. This can help with feelings of fatigue, and nausea. Alcohol interferes with the body’s ability to absorb vitamins, so when your body is lacking in B vitamins, it will take longer for your brain to recover.

Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body. A lack of it can cause light-headedness, mood issues, fatigue, migraines, and the typical symptoms of a hangover. Since drinking alcohol leads to excessive urination, it results in a depletion of magnesium in the body. Magnesium helps to break down alcohol and remove it from the body, leading to better blood sugar control, nerve function, and energy.

Selenium is also crucial for the fight against alcohol in the blood. It is a cofactor for glutathione, which is the leading antioxidant in the body. When this substance is produced it can neutralize and destroy harmful things that cause issues in the body – such as alcohol. By reducing the alcohol content in the bloodstream, it reduces the effect of the symptoms.

Vitamin C, like Magnesium plays a role in breaking down alcohol so that it can be removed from the body. Italso helps boost the immune system when it is battling a hangover. Proper levels of Vitamin C has also been said to help with aches and pains,improved mood, and even help in repairing some of the stomach mucosal lining that is  irritated by overconsumption of alcohol.

The Hangover IV provides the body with much-needed hydration, vitamins, and minerals that are depleted due to the diuretic properties of alcohol.Many of the symptoms of a hangover are caused by a lack of fluids and nutrients  in the body. With a Hangover IV treatment, the body is intravenously pumped with the necessary fluids and nutrients that can instantly help to soothe, address, and reduce theseverity of hangover symptoms.

Hangovers will no longer plague party animals the day after a night out!
