Just do an online search for “How Many Americans are Chronically Dehydrated” and the headlines will tell you quickly the number is about 75% of Americans. That is right – 75% of Americans – do not get enough hydration on a daily basis!

Dehydration is a problem for many reasons. Hydration in the body is responsible for a large variety of important roles in the body. Being properly hydrated helps with digestion and the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Water helps to eliminate toxins from the body, through the liver and kidneys, all the way to the toilet. If you are dehydrated, you might not be able to eliminate these toxins properly, resulting in an overload of toxins. This overload can show up in the body through symptoms like acne, joint pain, ulcers, headaches, low energy, muscle aches and pains, weight gain, or even disease.

In addition, much of the US population has the bad habit of drinking beverages that are diuretics, or dehydrating, beverages like coffee, soda, energy drinks with caffeine, and alcohol. Even if one isn’t consuming beverages that dehydrate the body further, summer heat, sports, outdoor activities including things like swimming contribute further to dehydration.

The easy answer to this problem is “Drink more water”. For many, though, it isn’t such a simple solution. Many do not like the taste of plain water, and when something isn’t part of a daily routine, it is easy to overlook. Purchasing a special water bottle and tracking how often you fill it up can be helpful. Eating fruits and vegetables high in water content are helpful as well, especially in the summer. Things like cucumber, zucchini, watermelon, celery, carrots, radishes, kiwi, and peaches will help the body stay hydrated.

Athletes, those super interested in anti-aging from the inside out, kids in sports, and even those with chronic conditions like POTS, diabetes, or that have undergone gastric by-pass surgery, getting help staying hydrated is key. Others that seek out IV hydration therapy are those that know they need help with keeping their hydration levels high and are using IV hydration to accomplish this outcome. Some people use IV hydration to help recover from a hangover and even to cleanse their liver from a night of too much alcohol. IV hydration and vitamin therapy can be used for a variety of purposes including keeping the body hydrated, anti-aging, weight loss, hangover recovery, migraine relief, healing the gut or relief from gastrointestinal issues, muscle recovery or post-workout recovery, liver cleansing and boosting immune system. If you are seeking out IV hydration, especially in Delray Beach or South Florida, make sure that you are getting an IV with electrolytes to truly replenish the minerals in the body. Ask at the place where you get your IV hydration and IV vitamin therapy if they use LRs (lactated ringers) or pure saline. LRs are a better source of minerals and electrolytes and help to restore the body’s electrolyte balance after a good workout, a great perspiration session, or if you are experience a bad hangover. Pretty much anything that causes your body to be dehydrated is a reason that you can use IV hydration to feel better faster!
