There’s nothing quite like a good night’s sleep. You feel rested and ready to take on the day with a spring in your step. So what should you do if that sleep is elusive? There can be many things that are inhibiting your ability to sleep at night. But one of the main contributing factors is nutrition, and there are some ways that are better than others to boost your nutrition.
Our team at Clover Internal Medicine Associates wants you to know how IV infusion therapy can help to improve your sleep.
What you eat and drink greatly affects your body, for better or for worse. Your diet gives your body information on how it should function.
The more you give it the nutrients you need, the higher your quality of life and overall well-being is going to be. This is due to the fact that nutrition affects things in your body like immune function, bone health, inflammation, cardiovascular health, and even sleep.
Dehydration is one nutrition factor that can greatly impact your sleep. Symptoms of dehydration like dry mouth, headaches, and muscle cramps can keep you from getting a good night’s rest. Even on the reverse side, poor sleep can also lead to dehydration — which can lead to a vicious cycle that’s hard to get out of.
More importantly, a lack of essential vitamins and minerals can not only affect your sleep but also raise your risk of developing sleep disorders like insomnia and sleep apnea. There are five vitamins that are critical to have plenty of in your diet for optimal sleep: vitamin D, vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12.
Sometimes just drinking more water and taking supplements isn’t going to be enough for your body. Your digestive tract cannot often absorb all of the nutrients your body needs, leaving you unable to get the full effects of nutritional supplements.
This is where IV infusion therapy comes in. IV infusion therapy allows you to get the nutrients you need by giving you them directly and bypassing the digestive tract altogether. It also ensures that you’ll have maximum hydration, both of which can give you the things you need to get a good night’s sleep.
If you have a sleep disorder or just struggle to have a restful night’s sleep, IV infusion therapy could be a great treatment option for you.
