Myth Debunked: Does Liquid IV Hydration Actually Work?

Liquid IV therapy is a sterile saline solution that contains the right balance of electrolytes, which are minerals that we need to support optimal health.

Electrolytes conduct the electricity that travels through neurons so they can innervate your muscles. These electrolytes also balance blood acidity and blood pressure while helping to rebuild damaged tissue.

Is it safe to use liquid IV therapy?

Yes, absolutely. IV treatments are a safe and effective way to hydrate your body.

In-home IV treatments are simple. A registered nurse will come to your home and administer the IV. They will monitor the rate and quantity of the IV fluids as they enter your bloodstream. This allows you to receive IV treatment at optimal efficiency without any side effects.

An IV solution hydrates your body more efficiently than drinking water. It also dilutes any medications or vitamins while facilitating their delivery into your system with 100% bioavailability. Treatments are non-GMO, vegan, free of gluten, soy, dairy, and contain no artificial preservatives or artificial sweeteners.

Are there any side effects?

IV therapy is a minimally invasive procedure, and there are some potential side effects to be aware of. Side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within several hours of treatment.

  • Redness and/or swelling at the injection site
  • Tenderness at the injection site
  • Itching
  • Bruising
  • Allergic reactions

Infections are also a possible side effect. However, when administered by a medical professional, it’s rare for the injection site to become infected.

Is Liquid IV good for your health?

Liquid IV therapy supplies essential vitamins in your body to keep you balanced, energized, and feeling your best.

IV therapy can support a healthy immune system, as antioxidants in select formulas help fight off pathogens and other foreign invaders. Your white blood cells need fluid to travel through your body, so when you are not properly hydrated, you are more susceptible to infections. Vitamin C, along with proper hydration, can help your white blood cells fight off illnesses.

IV therapy can also benefit the way you look. Treatments can detoxify your body and rejuvenate your skin. An extra boost of vitamin C can promote the biosynthesis of collagen, which keeps your skin looking firm and youthful.

Glutathione and B complex vitamins in liquid IV treatments can reduce the effects of aging on your skin because of their ability to regulate the metabolic process involved in DNA repair and synthesis.

What ingredients are in an IV treatment?

There are many IV formulas, each of which is blended to address a specific health target. Ingredients may include:

  • Vitamin C
  • Glutathione
  • B-complex vitamins
  • Amino acids
  • Magnesium
  • Taurine
  • NAD+
  • Medications such as anti-inflammatories or anti-nausea

Benefits of using liquid IV

There are many potential health benefits of IV treatments, some of which we’ve outlined below.


If you are tired and looking for more energy, the electrolytes and B vitamins in the energy boost IV treatment can work wonders, while NAD treatments can increase your energy and mental clarity.


Sleep imbalances can stem from many potential causes, one of which is vitamin deficiency. IV treatments restore vitamins and help your body rebalance itself, giving you a strong foundation to get a good night of sleep.

IV treatments can help you recover from workouts and illnesses faster by reducing inflammation, replenishing vitamins, and rehydrating you. Proper hydration can also help provide better cushioning between your joints so that you are less likely to injure yourself.
