These are exciting times for health and fitness; we are at the forefront of a new revolution where individuals can take control of their physical and mental well-being in a way that has only just become possible in the last couple of years.

From fitness bands to sleep tracking apps, technology that measures and analyses your physical fitness and overall health is now available to the individual so they can constantly calibrate what their body requires for optimal wellness.

Market analysts Canalys have predicted that 45 million fitness bands will be sold in 2017, with leaders such as Samsung and Apple joining sports brands such as adidas and Nike are dipping a toe in the wearable tech market.

Smartphone apps are aimed at making every aspect of your life easier and are 165,000 health-based apps now available.

Fitness and health technology allows you to take control: over your habits, your input and your needs. Having this information at your fingertips allows you to make choices in supplying your body with what it requires which is why we’ve seen a surge in people combining health technology with IV vitamin therapy.

Fitness trackers and IV drips

Many of us underestimate the amount of activity we do so fitness trackers can be invaluable. The sensors on a fitness tracker measures motion, acceleration, frequency, intensity and duration and from there the data is collected to get an overall reading on your activity. This data is then compared to calories consumed and sleep gained to give you an idea of where you need to fill in the gaps. Not getting enough sleep or consuming too many empty calories from your diet? A vitamin drip therapy programme can be designed to make you more efficient compared to your output.

Nutritional apps and IV drips

With the annual January purge just around the corner, many of us will be downloading nutritional apps to track the calories we’re consuming and – hopefully – lose weight at the same time. Many apps can now scan a product’s barcode and give you a health rating based on its ingredients or alert you to hidden sugar or additives.

By combining a diet and nutrition app with IV therapy it is possible to really fine tune what you are delivering to your body. Many diets are based on avoiding certain food groups, with carbohydrates a popular choice. However, carbohydrates are our main source of energy as they are easily broken down into glucose which powers the body.

If you’re following a low-carb diet, our Energy Booster IV Drip contains lots of energy-boosting amino acids, magnesium and B vitamins to improve your energy levels.
