IV Vitamin Therapy
What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy consist of administering safe and effective doses of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly to the patient’s bloodstream through a vein. This allows the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to be quickly delivered to the body’s cells where they are available for immediate use. By IV administration, there is no need to wait for the body to process foods or oral supplements through the digestive system and liver to make the vitamins and minerals available.
Why IV Vitamin Therapy?
C ontrary to popular belief, we do not get everything we need through our food alone. Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are essential to optimal health. Only approximately 10-25% of what is taken in orally is absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered to the body’s cells. The vast majority of the vitamins and minerals are excreted. In addition, people who are ill and debilitated may not be able to absorb enough nutrients from food to heal, and even those who are healthy, when under stress, may need more nutrients than can be provided by food or oral supplements alone. Research has shown that there are specific levels of certain nutrients that have to be reached before they exert a beneficial effect. Many people cannot tolerate high doses of problems like camps, nausea, or diarrhea. The IV route bypasses the stomach and intestines, thus avoiding the side effects while delivering maximal beneficial levels of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to the body.
