IV Therapy and Men's Health

Did you know that June is Men's Health Month? [1] It’s an observance used across the country to raise awareness about health care for men and focus on encouraging healthy life choices in boys, men and their families. This month we’ve made it our mission to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and to encourage a healthy lifestyle among men and boys.

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is a general term used to describe various conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels, including heart disease. [2] Heart disease affects the cardiovascular system which inhibits the heart’s ability to function. According to the American Heart Association, one in three men in the US suffer from one or more of these conditions and the disease is fatal for many of them. [3]

How to Stay Happy and Healthy

Vitamins are essential to your overall health. They perform many critical roles in your body, from producing energy to ensuring proper function of bodily systems. On average, less than 20% of the best multi-vitamins and supplements are absorbed into your body when taken orally and not getting enough of certain nutrients can negatively impact your health. [4] IV Vitamin Therapy works by administration of vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system for 99.9% absorption. [5] Getting regular IV Therapy treatments can help maintain good health and prevent dehydration and vitamin-deficiency, decreasing the risk for CVD.

Did you know dehydration causes a strain on your heart? [6] The amount of blood circulating through your body decreases when you’re dehydrated. To compensate, your heart beats faster, increasing your heart rate and causing you to feel palpitations. Hydration is critical to your heart’s health. In fact, a hydrated heart is able to pump blood more easily, allowing the muscles in your body to work better. IV Therapy fights dehydration keeping your heart happy, healthy and hydrated.
