Optimizing Hydration for Chronic Illness: 2023 Strategies to Improve Health

How IV Revival Helps Optimize Your Health

Vitamins and minerals are an essential part of optimizing your health. They can reduce the duration of illness, help injuries heal and ease the pain associated with chronic health conditions. Some vitamins and minerals are not easily absorbed in your digestive tract and others are not found in all diets. Our certified nurses at IV Revival can inject these essential nutrients straight into your bloodstream with our IV vitamin treatment options.

Our IV Revival menu is carefully crafted with vitamins, minerals and supplements that are scientifically proven to give your body the boost it needs. Whether you’re an athlete looking to recharge or someone looking for relief from a cold, IV Revival has something for you. Our menu has vitamin C, vitamin B-complex with B12, zinc, magnesium, glutathione, curcumin and more.

The benefits of vitamin C with the cold are well known, but did you know that magnesium can relieve headaches and curcumin and glutathione can help with diabetes?

We broke down each of our menu items so you can pick exactly what you need to get you feeling and looking like your best self. The best result is achieved with regular treatments.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is thought to prevent the cold and flu by boosting your immune system. Data also shows it is key to reducing the duration of an illness.

Harvard Medical School found that taking 200mg of vitamin C during the course of a cold shortened the duration of the virus by one day in both adults and children. The same study found that the same dose taken by athletes, such as marathon runners or those in the military, reduces their chances of getting a cold by half.

Vitamin C plays a role in lowering the risk of getting most types of cancer, according to PubMed’s vitamin C fact sheet. It can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

When Vitamin C Benefits You

Taking vitamin C in the recommended doses will always benefit you. It is especially beneficial if you are looking to optimize your health or prevent the cold and flu. If you’re already sick, IV Revival can come to you and administer vitamin C injections to make you feel better, fast.

Vitamin B-Complex and B12

B vitamins are water soluble, meaning you need to take them every day as they don’t stay in your system through your digestive tract. IV Revival’s B12 vitamin is five times more potent than most to help fight fatigue, promote healthy metabolism, reduce the risk of a stroke and heart disease, improve memory, mood, blood, DNA and immune function.

These vitamins are vital for neurological function, DNA production and red blood cell development. Healthline says they play a role in reducing stress and boosting moods, as well as reducing fatigue and improving cognitive functions.

A study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that in 33 days, 215 healthy men reported experiencing improved mental health and lower stress after taking high doses of B vitamin complex.

When to Take B Vitamins

When you’re in the need for a pick-me-up and coffee just isn’t working, try a shot of vitamin B12 for a super energy boost that lasts throughout the day. If you’re in a mental funk, try IV Revival’s B complex and B12 in your treatment to pick you back up again.


Magnesium is a wonderful mineral with muscle relaxant properties used to treat pain, migraines, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps and more. Up to 75% of Americans are not meeting the recommended intake of magnesium, which can lead to lower metabolic functions.

Magnesium is vital for your body; Healthline reports that it is essential in energy creation, protein formation, gene maintenance, muscle movements and nervous system regulation.

Due to its importance in helping muscles contract and relax, magnesium may help boost your exercise performance. Healthline notes that you may need to increase your magnesium intake by 10-20% when your exercising, especially if you are focused on weight-controlled activities such as wrestling and gymnastics.

Low levels of magnesium are linked to an increased risk of depression. One study from the Center for Clinical and Translational Science at the University of Vermont found that people with the lowest amount of magnesium intake had a 22% greater risk of depression.

The University of Palermo’s Department of Internal Medicine and Medical Specialties found a connection between Type 2 Diabetes and magnesium. The analysis suggests that about 48% of people with Type 2 Diabetes have low levels of magnesium in their blood.

Magnesium can also help lower blood pressure and can be used as an anti-inflammatory.

Would Magnesium Benefit Me?

If you have migraines, Type Two Diabetes or depression, magnesium can help bring you relief.

An athlete looking for gains or better performance can benefit from magnesium as well to promote muscle health. It may feel like cheating, but a natural boost in minerals is no different from staying hydrated. You’re simply giving your body what it needs to perform.


Zinc is an essential mineral that facilitates healing by maintaining cell growth and skin hydration. It is proven to shorten the duration of a cold and flu, help with skin disorders, hair loss, inflammatory diseases, and more.

The Mayo Clinic says zinc helps boost your immune system and metabolism and is a key factor in healing wounds. It is commonly used in hospitals to treat burns, ulcers and other skin injuries.

Along with your skin, the mineral is great for your hair. It aids in hair growth and repair as well as keeps your oil glands and follicles working properly.

Beyond that, zinc can shorten symptoms of a cold and flu by an average of 24 hours. It also reduces the symptoms of diarrhea, especially in children who do not have enough zinc intake.

When to take zinc

If you’re a slow healer, especially for skin abrasions, zinc can help you. If you want glowing skin and strong hair, the mineral has you covered.

Cold and flu relief is a must for flu season and studies show zinc is as effective as reducing the duration of a cold as vitamin C, with more added benefits.

If you have high cholesterol, an inflammatory disease, herpes or nerve pain, zinc can help give you relief as well.


What IV Revival calls the “mother of antioxidants,” glutathione is found in every cell of the body. It is made of amino acids and reduces oxidative stress. In other words, it boosts the immune system when there is an imbalance in your body of antioxidants and free radicals.

It can help combat the effects of alcohol and drugs, prevent illness, treats psoriasis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, promotes weight loss and more.

A pilot study from the Washington Dermatology Center recruited seven patients with psoriasis and found that they all had beneficial clinical improvement when glutathione was added to their treatments.

Researchers at Baylor School of Medicine found that individuals with lower glutathione levels were able to burn less fat and had higher rates of fat storing in the body, contributing to weight gain.

The Institute of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine in Genoa, Italy, found that 25% of participants in a study who received glutathione got the flu compared to 79% who contracted the flu in the placebo group.

For multiple sclerosis, a study found that Glutathione plays a pivotal role in detoxifying your brain of the harmful oxidative stress in multiple sclerosis patients.

When Should I Take Glutathione?

If you’re gearing up for a night out or if you’re facing the consequences from overindulging the night before, glutathione is proven to reverse damage caused by alcohol.

If you want to lose weight, having a higher level of glutathione can help you burn body fat and store less of it.

If you have multiple sclerosis or psoriasis, glutathione can do wonders to improve your symptoms.

Like with zinc and vitamin C, glutathione promotes a healthy immune system.


Curcumin is the yellow pigment found primarily in turmeric and curry. It is used to fight cancer, treat inflammatory digestive diseases, arthritis, prevent degenerative eye conditions, improve depression, and more.

However, the body cannot digest curcumin well, therefore an IV injection is the best way for your body to break down the supplement. If digested, the body cannot absorb the nutrients before it is broken down and eliminated.

Curcumin reduces inflammation and increases the level of natural antioxidants. It can improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain, reduce cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, according to Examine.

Healthline reports curcumin may also help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, as it boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which is a growth hormone in your brain. A decreased level of BDNF has been linked to Alzheimer’s and depression.

Studies have shown links between taking curcumin and reversing heart disease by improving endothelial function, which regulates blood pressure and blood clotting.

Is Curcumin Right for Me?

Curcumin is primarily for those wanting extra protection from chronic illness or degenerative heart and brain functions. If heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or Alzheimer’s runs in your family, curcumin can help protect you. It is a natural treatment for inflammation and can reduce depression.


IV Revival’s menu is scientifically selected to give you the nutrients you need to be your best self and to protect your health in the future. Whether you’re an athlete, looking for relief from depression or the flu, or trying to optimize your health and protect yourself, IV treatments can help you.

If you can’t pick between options, try the Myers Cocktail. It contains vitamin C, magnesium, B complex and B12 and is used to treat an array of illnesses including allergies, asthma, chronic pain, fatigue, and a multitude of acute and chronic diseases.
