Have you heard about vitamin IV therapy? Traditional IV therapy is a quick and efficient method for delivering nutrients to people that are ill and unable to absorb nutrients normally. However in recent years, there has been an increase in the use of IV vitamin infusions by people looking to improve their overall health. But what are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy.
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a technique in which vitamins and minerals are administered directly into the blood stream. The specific blend of vitamins used for the procedure will depend on the unique needs of the patients (learn more).
IV therapy has several health benefits as it is recommended for increasing energy, boosting metabolism, improving the appearance of skin, nails, and hair, and protecting against illness.
How IV Therapy works
A liquid formulation of vitamins and minerals is delivered directly into a vein. The entire process takes approximately 30-45 minutes. There is no downtime after treatment, so patients can get back to their normal routine right away.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
The direct infusion of vitamins through an IV ensures optimal absorption of nutrients. When vitamins are taken orally they are broken down by the digestive tract, so only a limited amount can be absorbed, usually about 20%-30%. However, vitamins given via IV therapy bypass the digestive system and go directly into the bloodstream, so there is greater absorption, up to 90%-100%.
