Best energy boost: IV hydration therapy or oral supplements?
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be challenging. Too many responsibilities. Jam-packed daily schedule. Work. Family. Appointments. Sleep? Oh, yes, that. Do all of the above while fatigued, wake up, and do it all again the next day.
Are you getting all the vitamins and nutrients you need to support your healthy lifestyle? One solution is to take oral supplements to boost energy. It’s an easy fix – oral supplements are available in supermarkets and pharmacies, they are easily obtained, and there are no extra trips to another retail outlet to purchase them.
BUT there’s an alternative solution that provides faster, more effective results – IV hydration therapy. IV (intravenous) fluid is a saline solution made of water and sodium chloride that facilitates the delivery of vitamins and nutrients throughout the body.
Intravenous therapy safely delivers increased levels of vitamins and essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream through a vein in your arm or hand. One of the main advantages it has over oral supplements is that IV treatment bypasses the digestive tract.
Because it is injected directly into the bloodstream and bypasses the digestive system effects are felt much faster, and relief isn’t delayed. This process allows for higher concentrations of what your body needs more quickly.
What are the common reasons for low energy levels?
Low energy can be caused by a variety of different factors, including:
When you’re under a lot of stress, your energy levels are likely to be lower than normal. Stress causes elevated cortisol levels that can weaken your immune system, leaving you drained.
Low energy levels may be due to not getting enough sleep. Most adults need eight hours of good quality sleep to function properly. Health conditions such as sleep apnea can be the culprit, but in many cases, it’s due to bad sleeping habits.
Eating a poor diet consisting of too many carbohydrates and processed foods can negatively impact energy levels. That’s why it’s essential to maintain a healthy diet for energy production. It will keep you focused and alert without the crash and burn later in the day. In addition, sensitivities to gluten, dairy, eggs, or corn can also lead to fatigue.
Anemia is a condition where there aren’t enough circulating red blood cells. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. Any condition that affects the body’s ability to make red blood cells subsequently causes hemoglobin levels to drop, lowering oxygen levels in the body. This leads to weakness and fatigue.
Vitamin B12 deficiency
B12 deficiency and insufficiency are surprisingly common. Vitamin B12 is not only important for energy production but for healthy red blood cell production. B12 deficiency can cause megaloblastic anemia – red blood cells that are too big or abnormally shaped. Improperly formed red blood cells can’t move through the bloodstream effectively, decreasing oxygen flow to muscles and tissues and increasing fatigue.
Electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium, and phosphate, play a crucial role in the body’s nerve and muscle function. If the electrolyte levels are either too high or too low, a person can experience lethargy, muscle weakness, fatigue, and confusion.
Certain illnesses, like chronic kidney disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, and heart disease, may be the reason for constant fatigue. If you think low energy levels might have an underlying medical cause, you should contact a medical professional immediately.
Fatigue is a common side effect of certain medications such as anti-anxiety drugs, antidepressants, statin medications for high cholesterol, as well as high blood pressure medications.
Prolonged physical and/or mental exertion can cause fatigue. Overexertion can be caused by prolonged screen time on a computer or cell phone, intense workouts, and engaging in other sporting activities without sufficient breaks.
Thyroid hormones have a direct impact on your mood and energy levels. Symptoms like lack of energy and fatigue can be triggered by the reduced production of hormones by the thyroid gland.
What are the IV vitamin therapy benefits?
IV therapy has many benefits – all of which increase energy levels. In addition to increased energy levels, IV vitamins also decrease stress, act as an immune boost, and improve athletic performance.
Some formulas are also designed to help you look and feel younger (which can boost energy levels). IV hydration can help rejuvenate the skin and reverse some of the detrimental effects of the sun and smoking. IV hydration therapy quickly replaces fluids, electrolytes, and vital nutrients, making it a great hangover recovery solution.
It’s also a great tool for athletes, who can use it after competition to rehydrate, boost energy, support muscle recovery, and maintain optimal athletic performance. IV hydration therapy replenishes the vitamins and minerals lost during physical exertion much faster than traditional methods, like food and drink.

Vitamin B12 is one of the best vitamins for increasing energy levels because it helps convert food into energy.
