What is Hartmann’s Solution?

Hartmann’s Solution is a blend of H20 and key electrolytes which are used worldwide for rehydration. It contains sodium, potassium and calcium that are critical for normal physiological processes. Also, Hartmann’s solution has been used around the world for decades and can help improve blood acidity by reducing it.

Learn more about Hartmann’s Solution

Hartmann’s Solution is similar to regular saline solution. The key difference is the inclusion of electrolytes such as potassium and calcium. Because of this, Hartmann’s Solution not only hydrates but gives the recipient a boost of these key nutrients. This keeps the body topped up with the extra minerals that it needs to function at its best.

Top benefits of Hartmann’s Solution

  • Hydration of the body
  • Balancing acidity levels in your blood
  • Improved nerve and muscle function
  • Rebuilds tissue damage
  • Balances blood pressure

Saline Solution

When you mix water with salt, you create a saline solution. This fluid is used in a few varied ways. It is commonly used medically for different reasons such as to clear out your sinuses, clean cuts and wounds and often to treat people with dehydration.

This is also why the saline solution is perfect for the use of IV drips. It gives the nutrients a way to enter the body whilst also providing a hydrating boost; however, Hartmann’s goes one step further.

Hartmann’s Solution

The key difference that we find between Hartmann’s solution and regular saline solution is the inclusion of electrolytes that assist our body to perform at its peak. Electrolytes help with hydrating the body along with the water already in the solution.

Hartmann’s gives the recipient a boost of these essential electrolytes whilst performing the usual function of normal saline; hydrating the body and facilitating the flow of nutrients.

Our Conclusion

There are different reasons to use either one of these solutions. Both facilitate the flow of important nutrients to your body and keep you optimally hydrated; however, one certainly comes out as the front runner when it comes to giving you an extra boost.

Hartmann’s solution provides your body with electrolytes, along with the normal saline benefits, to deliver an extra hydrating lift. This is why Hartmann’s is an option for our IV Vitamin Therapy. Contact us today for more information on Hartmann’s and to book a consultation!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where did Hartmann’s solution come from?

A British physician named Sidney Ringer developed, what was then named, Ringers Solution. This was in the late 19th century and it came from the attempt to figure out the ions required to keep a heart beating outside of its body (in this case, frogs).

Later, Alexis Hartmann, an American paediatrician, included lactate in this formation of Ringers Solution in an attempt to treat metabolic acidosis. This is why many now refer to Ringers Solution as Hartmann’s Solution or Ringers ‘Lactate’ Solution.

This is the medical background of Hartmann’s; however, it may be used in an IV Drip to help boost the electrolytes in your body. This is one of the reasons why we choose to add this solution to our IV Vitamin Therapies. For more information or to book a consultation, contact us today. Take the first step towards a revitalised you.

What is the difference between Hartmann's and normal saline?

Hartmann’s solution and regular saline solution are quite similar. The main difference in Hartmann’s is the addition of key electrolytes into its solution. Electrolytes are minerals that help your body function at its best.

In this case, they include potassium, calcium and sodium. Not only does this keep the body hydrated, but it also supplies these essential nutrients to keep the recipient topped up.

Are Vitamin IV drips good for you?

There are ample reasons for why IV drips may be good for your health and wellbeing. For instance, certain IV drips could help to enhance your immune system. Others are intended to combat exhaustion and stress.

IV drips may be able to improve your health and wellbeing by distributing essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids straight into your bloodstream. As a result, it may significantly improve the bioavailability of those nutrients.

This means that your body is far more likely to process nutrients already available in your bloodstream than those that have to be absorbed through your digestive system.

Another benefit of IV drips is the potential for helping you deal with your hangover! As nutrients are made available for your body to access more quickly, the recovery time can be far better than simply drinking water and beverages with electrolytes. Let Alive IV Clinics help you feel refreshed and recharged.
