IV Therapy—Why This Health Trend is Here to Stay


If you follow the Fitness Festival Events Instagram, you’ve probably seen pictures of our FFE staff at Pure Drip IV getting an IV infusion. Perhaps you are already an IV therapy fan yourself. But some people are initially cautious of IV therapy because they don’t know how it works or why someone would get an IV infusion anyways. In this post, we will fill you in on what IV therapy is, what the benefits are, and what to look for in an IV therapy clinic.

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy has been common in a medical setting for over a century and used by elite athletes for decades. But now, IV clinics bring the benefits of IV therapy to those who aren’t necessarily elite athletes or medical patients but want the benefits of IV therapy for either their performance or overall health.

Getting an IV drip at an upscale clinic like Pure Drip IV is a much more pleasant experience than getting an IV at a hospital. You can sit in a recliner and relax while you receive the infusion—reading, listening to music, or taking a rest!

What are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

The biggest benefit of IV therapy is the vitamins in the drip go right into the bloodstream to be immediately absorbed into the body. When we take vitamins orally, they have to go through the digestive system to get into the blood. So naturally, they lose some of their potency. On the other hand, IV drips go right to the bloodstream and treat a variety of ailments and promote healthy bodies.

While IV clinics have received a lot of national attention for offering a cure to a bad hangover, Pure Drip caters to athletes of any level, and provides solutions for people who suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

What to Look for in an IV Clinic?

While IV clinics are becoming more popular, some people are still hesitant to try it out. However, IV therapy is very effective and has very few side effects. It is important to make sure the clinic you visit has a doctor on staff and is run by trained medical professionals. So, if you’re partying in Vegas and need a pick me up, do your research before you get an IV infusion!
