IV Hydration at Hillcrest Medical
The tissues in the average adult are made up of 50% to 60% water. Most of the time, the tissues replenish themselves with water from food and beverages. But sometimes, sipping water isn’t the most effective way to replenish your dehydrated cells.
Ideal Candidates for IV Hydration
Hillcrest Physical Medicine recommends IV hydration for people who are experiencing any of the following wellness dilemmas:
- Intensive sports training
- The flu or the common cold
- Menstrual cramps
Benefits of IV Hydration
IV hydration introduces more than just much-needed water to your thirsty tissues. It also gives the body a boost of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin). Vitamin B12 injections are crucial in the fight against fatigue and lethargy since this vitamin plays a key role in metabolism and energy production. Because of this, vitamin B12 is an ideal additive to IV hydration, since dehydration is a major cause of low energy and fatigue.
