Vitamin B is comprised of a subset of vitamins, which all work to support your metabolism by converting food into energy. The fifth subset, Vitamin B5 also known as pantothenic acid, helps specifically with balancing blood sugar levels, reducing bad cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, and supporting healthy nerve function. Adrenal glands and hormonal digestive tract is also impacted by vitamin B5.

 

Vitamin B6

The sixth subset of vitamin B6, similar to the other vitamin B5, helps the body metabolize food, but it also provides support in a wide number of other areas including carpal tunnel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, and arthritis.

 

Vitamin B9 

Folic acid is vitamin B9. Food that contains folic acid include leafy vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, and many grain products. Folic acid helps the body to generate new and healthy cells. It is a great source of antioxidants and has heart health benefits, as well.

  1. Hydration

Water is root of energy, clarity, and health. Your body needs half its weight in ounces of water daily to feel hydrated and properly energized. Most of us don’t have the time or desire to chug 50 or more ounces of water daily. So, what is an alternative option? Vida-Flo created hydration therapy as a fast and effective way to hydrate the body and boost energy levels. The process takes 45 minutes and involves an IV to inject vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes directly into the body. The resulting effects is increased energy levels, immune system boost, and glowing radiant skin.

 

  1. Sleep

It seems logical that if you’re tired sleep is the remedy, but with busy schedules most of us can’t get the recommended 6 – 8 hours of sleep. If your schedule does not allow you to sleep enough, then improving the quality of your sleep can help you feel more energized. Ditch the cell phone close to bedtime and sleep in a room with complete darkness to help you fall asleep faster and deeper. During the day if you feel like taking a nap, set an alarm for 25 – 33 minutes to allow yourself a full cycle of sleep. You will wake up feeling energized and less groggy.

 

  1. Nutrition

Food is fuel. If you are eating tons of fast food, your body will feel exhausted quickly. If you desire to feel more energized, opt for better food choices. Super foods such as avocados, eggs, quinoa, and bananas, help to provide the body with fiber and proteins with an aid in the providing energy. Making healthy snack decisions throughout the day also helps to maintain energy levels.

 

 

Kick the caffeine to the curb and regain your body’s natural level of energy. The Vida-Flo hydration therapy can help you feel younger and more energized.

 

Is dehydration linked to allergies?

For those of us who suffer from allergies, as if we weren’t suffering enough we could also be dehydrated without even knowing.

 

Spring is here! The flowers are blooming, the birds and bees are starting to get busy pollinating. The change in seasons starts to stir the dormant irritants like pollen and dander. With the change in seasons, pollen and dander are at their peak. With those irritants in the air, our bodies react with sneezing, runny noses, and itchy eyes.

One of body’s first defenses against dander and pollen is the expel liquid. Starting with a sneeze, which can muster up to 95 mph of strength and expel up to 2 ounces of water in an attempt to clear our air passages. That’s why it’s also important to cover your mouth with each sneeze, as to not spray unwanted liquid matter on surfaces or people. Runny noses are also liquid and hydration leaking from the body. The body tries to combat the dry air and irritants with lubrication in the nose. Blowing your nose can lead up to 6 ounces of fluid expelled. Lastly, when those itchy eyes start to puff up, fluid builds up underneath and behind the eyes. In some of the worst cases, eyes can get so puffy and filled with fluid that they are sealed. All of our allergic reactions expel water and dehydrate the body! That’s hydration that our immune system needs to operate properly and heal from those harmful irritants.

 

allergies

 

Here’s some helpful hints to bring the hydration back in to the body.

1. Drink more water.

Refreshing and cleansing the palette can prevent and dampen the irritants like pollen and dander, before they get those pesky reactions in the body. Even if you feel the symptoms of allergies, drinking more water can help to flush pollen and dander out the system more quickly and efficiently.

2. Vida-Flo hydration therapy.

How To Eliminate A Hangover This St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is an ode to drinking, but that doesn’t have to mean a hangover is certain!

You have one opportunity each year to overindulge in green food and green beer and it is on St. Patrick’s Day. This holiday was created to celebrate the Irish heritage and this year it falls on a Saturday. Celebration is likely to last throughout the weekend, so here are a few tips to eliminate a hangover this holiday weekend.

1.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

It can be a bit of a pain trying to monitor your water intake as you drink, but with Vida-Flo there is an easier way. It’s called hydration therapy. Hydration therapy is a fast and effective way to eliminate a hangover. The process takes only about 45 minutes and is administered through an IV. It’s virtually painless and within moments, water infused with sodium, electrolytes, and vital minerals are introduced into your body. As a result, you feel renewed, rehydrated, and without the hangover symptoms.

2.  Eat a hearty meal

By eating a hearty meal before drinking you can set yourself up for success. The food in your system helps to absorb some of the alcohol, so you won’t feel as bad the next morning compared to a person who didn’t eat. Also, be sure to eat the next day. While fried foods are not the best for you, they can help to settle a queasy hangover stomach.

3.  Decrease day drinking

If you begin drinking early in the day, chances are you will intake more alcohol compared to a person who begins at night. Your body, as a result, feels more intoxicated. While day drinking is fun, you can eliminate an intense hangover by limiting the amount of day drinks you inbibe.

4.  Know your limit

There’s a fine line between feeling good and being drunk. Knowing the difference between the two can save you from the side effects of nasty hangovers. Try to give yourself thirty minutes to an hour between drinks, so you can gage your intoxication level.

5.  Go with responsible friends

If you choose to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with responsible friends you will make responsible decisions. Having fun doesn’t have to end with painful experiences. Responsible friends will encourage you to have a few drinks and a great meal this St. Patrick’s Day, take Uber or Lyft to get home safely, and schedule a hydration therapy appointment in advance to kick the headache and nausea of a hangover.

The Overall Benefits of Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy is a revolutionary treatment developed by Vida-Flo to quickly and effectively rehydrate your body! 

This treatment is used by professional athletes and everyday people as a dehydration treatment. Here are a few facts and benefits of Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy.

Beauty and Wellness

Water is the foundation of beauty and wellness. Most people aren’t getting enough water to keep them looking and feeling great. Even those who drink the recommended amount of water can still experience the effects of dehydration, which includes dry mouth, exhaustion, and headaches. This is because not all water is created equally and after undergoing processing, most bottled water has become acidic. Human bodies need to maintain a balanced pH level to feel healthy which means alkalized hydration is key.

Vida-Flo is a leading dehydration clinic that specializes in hydration therapy to provide alkalized hydration that is packed full of essential electrolytes to truly replenish the body. The effects of adequate hydration include glowing and even-toned skin, reduced blemishes and healthy hair. It’s a fact that looking good feels good, so wellness begins from within!

Energy and Revitalization 

Your energy levels deplete when you are dehydrated, which means you can’t perform your best in your favorite physical activities. In addition, when you sweat, you lose essential salt that your body needs to function at full capacity while active. If you are exercising while dehydrated, you are more likely to sustain injuries, you will have a harder time losing fat, and your body will feel sore much longer.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is used by top athletes and sports professionals, because it is an effective way to prevent physical fatigue and recover faster. Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consists of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), which replaces vital salt lost in exercise. The bags also contain electrolytes of potassium, calcium and lactate, which are essential to fat loss and speedy muscle recovery. Exercise is a great way to boost your energy and with proper hydration your body will perform at its highest capacity.

Illness Recovery

The occasional cold is a normal part of life. Germs easily travel from surfaces into our systems and cause us to experience congestion, stuffy noses, sore throats, and variety of other symptoms. Having a cold is normal, but feeling sick for more than 3 days isn’t. Most common cold related hospital visits are treated simply with hydration therapy.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy can beat the common cold. Save yourself a trip to the medic and get a hydration boost that will help your immune system fight the common cold and prevent future illnesses.

Vida-Flo’s hydration therapy has these benefits and many more. Get started today with your customized hydration treatment at your local Vida-Flo!

WINTERTIME DEHYDRATION FAQS

Although we have recently received some snow here in the high country, it has been a considerably mild winter in Breckenridge. Unfortunately for visitors and residents alike, this can lead to increased cases of dehydration, turning a fun day on the slopes into an unpleasant experience. In today’s post, we will take a closer look at wintertime dehydration and what you can do to alleviate the symptoms of this troublesome condition.

At Vida-Flo, we are America’s hydration experts, offering Breckenridge visitors and natives efficient and affordable dehydration treatments. With a clinic that is located conveniently off of Main Street, we are here to serve all of your hydration needs, not only in the wintertime, but all year round. Book your appointment today!

Is Dehydration Possible in Winter?

In the hot summer months, it is easy to be mindful of drinking enough water to keep our hydration levels up. However, during winter it can be easy to forget about drinking enough water to ensure that our body gets the hydration it needs. Many of us don’t think of dehydration as a wintertime concern, leaving us particularly vulnerable to the condition. In truth, your hydration needs are just as important during the winter months as they are during the summer, especially if you are someone who enjoys participating in the snowy activities our community boasts.

Although some like to take it easy during the snowy season, there are many people who remain very active in the winter. Activities such as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and ice skating are fun, but they are also sure to get your heart pumping. It is also likely that you will break a sweat when participating in these activities, and even shoveling outdoors is enough of a workout for some. When paired with the use of fireplaces, layered clothing, and dry air, these activities pack a one-two punch on your hydration levels, and while it may seem like somewhat of a misnomer, winter dehydration is possible.

Am I Dehydrated?

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be difficult to drink enough water, and many of us find ourselves in a “holiday hangover” come January. The symptoms of wintertime dehydration are no different from those during other seasons, and some of them mimic the symptoms of a common cold. Dehydration treatment may be necessary if you find yourself experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Dry mouth and lack of skin elasticity
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Thirstiness
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Fever
  • Low blood pressure

When considered individually, these conditions may not seem indicative of a major health concern, but they may be the only warning signs you receive at the onset of dehydration. Once dehydration is recognized, it may take several days to bring your body back into balance.

How Can I Quickly Rehydrate?

Thankfully, there is a quicker way to deliver the hydration and electrolytes your body needs for optimal performance during the winter months: IV hydration therapy. When properly administered by physician assistants, registered nurses, and nurse practitioners, IV therapy is one of the fastest ways to rehydrate your parched body. In fact, when you receive this type of dehydration treatment, you can get the same hydration benefits as you would from drinking more than two gallons of water — all without the health risks and side effects associated with trying to drink that much fluid in a short period of time. Even better, you can achieve healthy levels of dehydration in less than an hour, allowing you to get back to your day quickly.
