Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is a way of giving vitamins, minerals and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream instead of through the digestive tract. It helps to bypass any issues with absorption and allows for large doses of nutrients to reach the tissues that need them quickly. It’s important to note that IV nutrient therapy should only be administered during an in-office procedure by a licensed and trained medical practitioner, using proper materials and setup under aseptic conditions.
There are different ways to give micronutrients to the body, but using IV or intramuscular routes can be more effective for some people. For instance, IV administration can provide higher levels of nutrients such as vitamin C than oral administration.
Some benefits of nutrients require specific concentrations that may not be achievable through oral administration. For example, vitamin C’s antiviral effect is seen at a concentration which cannot be attained through oral administration.
Also, oral absorption of nutrients can be affected by food or impaired by other nutrients and minerals. Moreover, IV administration can prevent gastrointestinal (GI) side effects like upset stomach, nausea and vomiting. This makes IV administration a better option for many people as it enhances absorption while minimizing GI side effects.
IV therapy helps the body absorb all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants by bypassing the digestive system, thus hydrates the body quickly and effectively, making us feel more energized and healthy.
Due to poor diet options and lifestyle, some people cannot fix their chronic conditions with a healthy diet alone. Intravenous therapies can bypass a dysfunctional gastrointestinal tract to help improve the patient’s quality of life and chronic health conditions faster and more efficiently with assistance of a healthcare provider. Rehydrate quickly with a normal saline or lactated ringer’s solution, which restores electrolytes, fluid balance and pH levels.
IV vitamin infusions are designed to enhance overall well-being and physical performance, provide immune support, improve nerve conduction and boost energy levels all at once.
