Hangover RX: What is IV Hangover Therapy?

Hangover RX. Hangover infusions. Hangover drip therapy. You’ve probably heard of it before, but what is it? Does hangover therapy actually help improve recovery time?

If you’ve ever spent a long weekend having a little too much fun with friends or colleagues and wondered how you’d make it through the next evening, hydration therapy is something to consider. While it’s not a true “hangover cure”, it can definitely help minimize what you’re feeling after a long night with too much alcohol.

Hangover RX: What is IV Hangover Therapy?

Hangover therapy has three main goals:

· Reduce inflammation

· Combat headaches and nausea

· Restore vital vitamins, minerals, and electrolyte

When you drink, alcohol affects your body in a number of ways. Perhaps most noticeably, it causes the body to produce (and eliminate) more urine. So, even though you’re drinking liquid, you’re actually causing yourself to become less hydrated.

Alcohol also triggers an inflammatory response from your immune system. This can affect everything from your concentration levels to your overall feeling of wellbeing. You may end up feeling achy, puffy, and generally bad.

In many cases, alcohol can irritate the lining of the stomach. It increases production of stomach acid, and that can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Add in the falling blood sugar and expanding blood vessels and you’ve got a recipe for headaches, tiredness, weakness, and all-around misery.

A simple night of fun can lead to an awful lot of misery.

That’s to say nothing of the cosmetic impact. After a long night out and too many drinks, you’re probably going to be looking as bad as you feel. With a hangover, you can expect to look 5-10 years older than you normally do, with a tired, sagging face and bags under your eyes. Most people even find that their posture suffers. Hangovers have a way of making every part of you look tired and downtrodden.

On top of it, you’re more susceptible to illness. If you don’t get a handle on your situation quickly, you’re rolling out the welcome mat for any germs or viruses you encounter. In pandemic times especially, it’s important to keep your immune system on top of its game.

How IV Therapy Can Help Your Hangover

It’s important to emphasize that IV hangover therapy is NOT a cure, and it doesn’t reverse the damage caused by alcohol. Alcohol is still an addictive carcinogen that we need to be mindful of.

That doesn’t mean you can’t make life a little easier for yourself after overindulging. You don’t have to spend the next day or two laying around in abject misery (and wondering how you ever pulled off back-to-back nights of partying in college).

IV therapy for hangovers will typically include a cocktail of substances like selenium, essential electrolytes, ondansetron, dexpanthenol, magnesium cl, zinc, copper, hydroxocobalamin, magnesium, thiamine, niacinamide, riboflavin-5-phosphate, sodium chloride, potassium chloride, calcium chloride.

Together, these ingredients help bring you back towards your normal baseline state. They help re-hydrate your body, reduce nausea and headaches, and boost your energy levels so you can get through whatever it is you need to do the next day (or night).

Instead of popping pills to kill your headache (and further upsetting your already irritated stomach), IV therapy bypasses your stomach and gets the nutrients you need into your body – quickly.
