Hangovers get worse and worse as we age!

The morning after a long night out can be rough sometimes; at Spark Health we have the ultimate cure! IV Nutrient Therapy. Here are the 5 truths about IV Vitamin Therapy and Curing Your Hangover

Improved Detoxification (Liver)

  • Vitamins that support liver function include: glutathione, NAC, L-carnitine, and vitamin C. These act to bind up oxidative free radicals and excrete out of the body.

Improved Breakdown of Acetaldehyde (Alcohol = Ethanol)

  • Alcoholic beverages are usually combined with tasty sugary mixers to mask the pungent taste of alcohol.
  • Alcohol is a toxic substance to the body that must be broken down into a substance called acetaldehyde and excreted out of the body. The buildup of acetaldehyde is the chemical involved in feeling “hungover” the morning after a night of drinking.
  • Supporting liver, gut, and kidney function is important in minimizing the effects of alcohol. Some vitamins that are beneficial are glycine, glutathione, magnesium, B2, and B6.

Improved Hydration

  • The well known notion of why individuals get “hungover” is that they are dehydrated. Alcohol consumption in combination will those tasty beverages depletes water stores in the body by decreasing a substance called vasopressin. This acts to reabsorb water back into the bloodstream to keep you hydrated. The decrease of vasopressin, leaves you hungover and dry.
  • IV Vitamin Therapy consists of normal saline with the addition of many vitamins and minerals. The normal saline contains the essential electrolytes the body needs for rapid rehydration. To further support rehydration, adding essential cellular vitamins is beneficial, such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium.

Improved Circulation (Headache)

  • Adequate circulation is necessary for the body to perform optimally. Our blood supplies every cell and organ in the body.

  • Mitochondria are the powerhouse to our cellular function, which gives us energy production and optimal function. Mitochondria feed off vitamins and minerals that IV Vitamin Therapy provides directly into the bloodstream.
  • Some key nutrients for mitochondrial health include glutathione, selenium, carnitine, and CoQ10.
