At Bounce Hydration, we use only the highest quality of ingredients available. Below, you’ll find a list of the IV ingredients we offer in many of our signature drips. Plus, we’ve included several ingredients here that aren’t offered in our IV treatments but are available to boost a drip’s wellness benefits or for you to create your very own custom drip.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an organic compound that’s considered an antioxidant in the body. Our bodies naturally synthesize this compound but only in small amounts. It is synthesized in the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of all the body’s cells. Because of this, it may aid in weight loss and the protection against free radicals, as it is an antioxidant.
If you are experiencing fatigue, Bounce Hydration offers several anti-nausea medications to remedy your symptoms. Most often, we use ondansetron, commonly known as Zofran, and promethazine, most known as Phenergan.
If you are experiencing inflammation from a hard night out or are looking to manage inflammation from another cause, Bounce Hydration can include an anti-inflammatory medication into your drip. We most often use ketorolac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is more commonly known as Toradol.
L-arginine is an amino acid responsible for building protein. It is also the body’s largest source of nitrous oxide. This substance is known to relax the blood vessels, lower blood pressure and improves circulation. Because of its tendencies to increase blood flow and improve circulation, it’s often used to remedy the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and other cardiovascular conditions. Bounce Hydration offers arginine as its own booster, but it is also included in our tri amino booster, along with citrulline and ornithine.
BCAA is a combination of three amino acids: valine, isoleucine and leucine. All three amino acids are considered essential, meaning the body cannot make them on its own. It must come from your diet or other means like IV infusions. BCAA aids in the growth and maintenance of muscle protein, but it can also aid in the treatment several health conditions, including ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), McArdle’s disease, and elderly kidney failure.
B-Complex is comprised of eight different B vitamins – thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, biotin, folic acid, cobalamin – that are used to boost your mood, increase brain function, reduce fatigue and give you the energy you need to get through the day.
Calcium is an essential trace mineral that our bodies cannot produce. We must receive it from outside sources. While the mineral is most associated with strong bones, calcium is necessary for proper nerve function and maintaining the integrity of blood vessels.
At Bounce Hydration, the most common electrolyte we use is sodium chloride, also known as table salt. The body needs sodium chloride, as it’s essential in transmitting electrical impulses throughout the body. And the body is saltier than you think. The concentration of salt to water is not that off from seawater.
Fluids are the basis of all our drips. At Bounce Hydration we use two types of floods: Lactated ringers and saline. Saline is a mixture of salt and water that mirrors the body’s concentration of salt to ensure it hydrates vs. the other way around. Lactated ringers consist of sodium chloride, potassium chloride, calcium chloride and sodium lactate. At Bounce Hydration, we most often use lactated ringers, but if you have a preference, you can receive either-or.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found in the liver that prevents damage caused to the body from oxidative stress. This includes free radicals, peroxides and heavy metals. It is essentially a detoxifier, cleansing the body of unwanted and harmful substances.
L-carnitine is an amino acid that turns fat into fuel. It’s responsible for delivering fats to the mitochondria, our cells’ powerhouses to break them down and use them as energy. In effect, this increases our metabolism and helps prevent the fatigue that’s often associated with strenuous workouts.
Magnesium sulfate is a powerful electrolyte that has been known to ease anxiety and nervousness, relax your muscles, promote a good night’s rest, support immune function and keep your nerves functioning properly. It is also used in other non-IV applications such as Epsom salt.
Tri Amino contains three amino acids – citrulline, arginine and ornithine. These amino acids are associated with increased blood flow, decreased blood pressure and increased athletic performance.
Vitamin B12 is vital for the healthy development of nerve cells, blood cells and DNA. Bounce recommends that you receive one of our dehydration drips right after you complete an especially grueling task in the sun. B12 is included in our B complex booster but is also offered separately.
Oftentimes, you will see vitamin C with added preservatives. At Bounce Hydration, we make sure ours is preservative-free. In the body, ascorbic acid acts as an antioxidant, which means it protects the body from harmful free radicals and helps the immune system fight against bacteria and viruses.
Like iron, zinc is a metal found throughout our body and is considered an essential nutrient our bodies can only get from outside sources. It’s responsible for the creation of DNA, it plays an essential role in the wound-healing process, and it also fortifies your immune system when your body is invaded by a virus. It may also help with balancing hormone levels in the body.
