IV hydration therapy is a medical treatment where vital fluids, vitamins, minerals, are administered directly into your bloodstream through a small needle. Some nutrients can also be injected directly into the muscle (intramuscular injections). This allows for rapid and direct absorption by your cells. The nutrients will bypass your gastrointestinal system preventing waste and can help address various health concerns.
