Intravenous Therapy

Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy

Intravenous IV nutrient therapy is another mechanism of achieving optimal concentration of vitamins, nutrients and amino acids. IV vitamin therapy administers vitamins and minerals directly into the blood via a catheter inserted into a vein.

Why IV therapy?

When a person receives an IV vitamin treatment, they’re receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube inserted into a vein. During an IV vitamin drip, the body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins themselves because the nutrients are being absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream. This method produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in the compared to food or supplements. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, and is limited on how much can be absorbed (50 percent). If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at a much higher percentage (90 percent). This is because several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products consumed, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream lead to greater uptake into cells, which theoretically will use the nutrients to maintain health and fight illness.
