EIGHT REASONS TO STAY HYDRATED

We all know it’s important to drink enough water during the day, but have you ever wondered why? Hydration is key to many of our bodily functions, and it’s important to consume enough water every day to help your body operate at its optimum level. At Vida-Flo Breckenridge, we’re dedicated to giving you ways to keep your body hydrated and experience the incredible benefits of hydration therapy! Make an appointment with us today!

MORE BRAIN POWER

If you find yourself struggling to keep up at work or stay interested in that new book you’ve been wanting to read, try sipping some water. Several studies have proven that people who drink enough water during the day are more present and can perform cognitive tasks faster and with more accuracy than those who were dehydrated. In day-to-day life, being able to respond quickly to coworkers or family members is vital, and if you’re dragging due to not consuming enough water, dehydration can make for a long day.

BETTER BODY BALANCE

Your body is made up of more than two-thirds water, so if you’re dehydrated, your body is definitely struggling. Water helps your body to regulate temperature, maintain blood volume, lubricate the linings of your internal organs, and balance your kidney function. Without it, your body will struggle to keep all of your functions operating correctly, and dehydration can even contribute to joint pain, muscle aches, stomach and digestion issues, and headaches.

BOOST YOUR MOOD

Feeling a little cranky or irritated? Can you remember the last time you drank a glass of water? If you’re struggling to recall your last H2O consumption and you don’t understand why you’re annoyed, then you’ve discovered the culprit. Studies have proven that individuals who consume enough water regularly experience less bewilderment, confusion, fatigue, and sleepiness. Those who reduced their daily intake found themselves to be less content, calm, and relaxed, and also that they were less positive throughout the day.

CONTROL APPETITE

Fighting the munchies? You might actually be thirsty! Our body’s mechanism for alerting your brain that you’re hungry or thirsty isn’t the most accurate, so sometimes you can think that you’re hungry when actually needing some H2O instead. Next time you find yourself reaching for a snack, try drinking a large glass of water first. This is also a great way to reduce the amount of calories you’re consuming during the day. Water is a great appetite suppressant, and you can drink as much as you like without having to count calories. To boost your metabolism, an adequate amount of water is needed to keep the bodily functions operating correctly.

LOWER THE RISK OF HEART ATTACK AND DISEASE

Unfortunately, heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. Plaque build up is usually what causes your heart to falter, and as the most important organ of the human body, taking good care of it is vital (literally!). Drinking enough water everyday will dramatically decrease the chances of heart disease, and will help your heart to stay healthy. Also, drinking your daily eight glasses of water will help to decrease your blood pressure, taking a lot of stress off of your heart. When you’re fully hydrated, your blood is about 92 percent water, which will help it to move more efficiently through your body and help your heart to beat effortlessly.

REDUCE CHOLESTEROL

Did you know that if you’re not drinking enough water, your body actually creates more cholesterol so that your cells are still functioning properly? If you already are struggling with high cholesterol, this can make it that much harder for your body to reduce your cholesterol levels. Make sure that you’re drinking enough H2O during the day so that you can help your body function correctly without raising your cholesterol.

STAY HEALTHY

When you’re consuming enough water throughout the day, then you’ll be able to fight off illnesses and viruses more easily. When your body is struggling to keep itself hydrated, then flushing out the toxins that make you sick can be harder and take more time, giving the bad bacteria a better opportunity to start its assault on your immune system. Stop that office virus or stomach bug in its tracks by drinking enough water every day, and even increasing your daily consumption during cold and flu season.

SLOW THE AGING PROCESS

Staying hydrated helps your body to work efficiently, instead of having to constantly play catch up because it’s dehydrated. If you stay dehydrated for extended periods, your organs have to work harder, which causes them to age faster. When you’re hydrated and giving your body the hydration that it needs, then your body can slow down and maintain its functions comfortably.

HOW HYDRATION CAN MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW

Are you searching for that rested, awake look this winter season? Is your skin dull, lifeless, and dry? Hydration is one of the most important skin care practices that will help you to look awake and well-rested. Drinking enough water is the absolute best way to ensure that your skin looks its best. Vida-Flo Nashville is America’s IV Hydration expert and can give you some great IV Hydration options so you’ll look perfect for that special night out, important event, or even just every day. Here are some quick and easy ways to keep your skin hydrated.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER (OBVIOUSLY)

Drinking plenty of water is the absolute best way to keep your skin supple and glowing. Most experts recommend eight to ten glasses per day. So you’re not running to refill your glass often, get a large water bottle or cup and keep it by your desk. You can also set an alarm on your phone or computer to remind you to take a few sips throughout the day. Water is extremely important to your overall health, energy levels, and skin clarity. Caffeinated teas, juices, and sodas need to be limited as well since they contain copious amounts of sugar and caffeine which will dehydrate your body and make you more tired. As you become more accustomed to drinking plenty of water throughout the day, you’ll notice that your skin will appear clearer and brighter.

EAT FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Did you know that fruits and vegetables contain lots of water? One apple can contain upwards of 85 percent of water along with fiber, nutrients, and vitamins. If you want to consume lots of fruits and veggies quickly and don’t have a lot of time, try blending them into a smoothie. Make sure to leave out any sugary juices or sweeteners so that you’re getting the most out of that yummy blend. A salad filled with leafy greens is another great choice for lunch as lettuces are full of water as well. Along with being full of water, eating more vegetables and fruits will make you feel healthier and give you energy, and the added benefits of the vitamins and nutrients will make your skin even more glowy.

CHICKEN, BEEF, OR VEGETABLE BROTH

The newest trend in health and hydration, bone broth is a treasure trove of protein, minerals, and anti-inflammatory properties. Along with the delicious goodness that chicken, vegetable, or beef broth offers, your body is able to easily digest and utilize the minerals and nutrition that broth has. It also is a supplemental way to hydrate, especially if you have been sick or ill and in need of some nutrition. You can use whatever broth you prefer as a base for soups or just sip it hot throughout the day. Along with the nutrients, vitamins, protein, and minerals, the hydration of broth will be incredibly beneficial to your skin health.

COCONUT WATER

If you’re in need of flavor but still want to hit your hydration goals, coconut water is an excellent option. Full of potassium, vitamin C, and electrolytes, this is a perfect choice if you’re fighting off a cold or have recently worked out and need more than plain H2O. Make sure that the coconut water you choose doesn’t have any added sugar or artificial flavorings. One of the best hydrators, coconut water will make your skin bright and luminous.

TRAVEL HEALTHY THIS SUMMER!

If you have some fun summer plans, it’s important to take care of yourself so that you can be feeling happy and healthy for your trip. How many times have you gotten on a plane feeling great and then gotten off feeling horrible? Unfortunately, airplanes are crawling with germs, which can make you sick. Before you leave on a jet plane, make an appointment at Vida-Flo in Peachtree for an IV hydration therapy treatment! We can customize your treatment to include plenty of vitamins and medications to help your body defend itself from illness. Call today!

AIRPLANE AIR ISN’T THE CULPRIT

Everyone says that airplane air is full of germs, but actually it’s extremely clean. The recirculated air that you breathe is filtered continuously through HEPA filtration systems, which removes about 99.7 percent of airborne particles.

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY ON A PLANE

If you have a long flight coming up, here are some tips for you to follow to help yourself feeling happy and healthy:

Sanitize: You don’t know who last was in your seat, so it’s important to sanitize everything around you. Hand sanitizer is also essential to keeping your hands clean and free of germs.

Drink Water: Staying hydrated will keep you healthier and help your body to flush out toxins. Make sure you’re drinking at least eight ounces of water every hour that you’re on the plane.

No Alcohol: Even though enjoying a cocktail is relaxing and enjoyable, alcohol is hard on your system, especially if you’re struggling with a cold. Switch out that Bloody Mary for plain tomato juice to boost your immune system.

If you come back from vacation feeling less than 100 percent, make a beeline to Vida-Flo in Peachtree. Our IV hydration therapy treatments will have you feeling awesome in no time! Call today for an appointment!

WHAT CAUSES A HANGOVER?

If you’re feeling rough after a night of drinking, you’re probably struggling with a hangover. Have you ever wondered what causes a hangover? In this blog, we’re going to discuss what actually happens when you wake up with a headache, nausea, and light sensitivity. Did you know that Vida-Flo Peachtree has an IV hydration treatment specifically for hangovers? The next time that you wake up feeling sick after party, contact our helpful team at Vida-Flo and let us help you feel better within 45 minutes so you can be on your way!

HANGOVER 101

From a medical perspective, a hangover is just intense dehydration. When you drink alcohol, it causes you to urinate more, which is why you wake up the next day with a headache, dry mouth, and dizziness. It also is processed by your body as a mild toxin, so it can incite an immune system response that may make you feel ill. Your stomach will also feel upset due to the irritants of alcohol. Some people may have heartburn, others may experience a loss of appetite, and still others may feel nauseated.

HOW TO HELP A HANGOVER

While there are multiple remedies for a hangover, what you need after a weekend party is to replace the fluid and electrolytes that you’ve lost. Drinking water is a great place to start, but one of the quickest ways to feel better is to schedule an IV hydration treatment appointment. The IV fluid can get into your body much faster, and you can feel the effects almost immediately. You also can add medications, vitamins, or electrolytes to your treatment to help your body get back on track even faster.

Contact Vida-Flo Peachtree for an IV hydration treatment today, and feel better fast after a night of partying! Call now!
