How and when should I take ORAL I.V.?
We recommend taking ORAL I.V. directly by mouth or with 12-16 ounces of water. It is recommended to take ORAL I.V. as a hydration aid and with other fluids prior to, during, and after activities of exertion or as a supplement to daily activities that would otherwise contribute to dehydration. Depending on your level of activity and personal fitness, we recommend taking one 2 ounce shot of ORAL I.V. for every 2 to 4 hours of strenuous activity thereafter. Athletes that push themselves extremely hard can take another every 1-2 hours during their race. In addition, because ORAL I.V. is a hydration aid, be sure to include it in your rest and recovery methods too.
For daily hydration take 1 ORAL I.V. in the morning with 8-12 ounces of water and another in the evening. If you are feeling dehydrated during the day take another ORAL I.V. Please remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you are exercising during the day take an ORAL I.V. before and after your workout for best results.
We recommend taking 1 ORAL I.V. 10-15 minutes before taking off. If your flight is over an hour you can take another ORAL I.V. every 2 hours. Drink plenty of water on your flight and take another ORAL I.V. after you land to begin any rehydration needed.
