Why should you try nutritional IV Therapy?

If you are like most people, you’ve had an IV as part of a medical procedure or during a stay in the hospital. They put the IV in your hand, tape it there and you keep it for the length of your stay and occasionally, a nurse will stop by and change the bag of fluids or inject something into it. But do you know why patients usually get IVs?


2 Benefits of IVs

IVs are used for hydration and to deliver nutrients directly into the blood stream, bypassing the time and energy required to digest the nutrients. This keeps you from becoming dehydrated during your stay. Buy why would you want an IV outside of the hospital?


Why Nutritional IV Therapy?

Nutritional IV Therapy supports nutritional needs and fast-tracks you to a state of optimal health. Nutritional IVs are customized with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. Over the course of about 45 minutes, the nutrients are given intravenously (‘in the vein’), flooding the cellular environment and ensuring higher absorption than through the digestive tract when taking them orally. The saline bag the vitamins are mixed into is formulated for optimal hydration and balanced to hydrate without diluting essential electrolytes in the blood.


Benefits of IV Therapy:

  • • IV therapy is often more effective than taking oral supplements at correcting intracellular nutrient deficiencies. 
  • • Intravenous delivery method targets nutrients directly to where they are needed: the cells. 
  • • IVs bypass the digestive system, which is important for patients who have digestive disturbances or trouble assimilating and absorbing nutrients. 
  • • IV nutrients are given in therapeutic doses – often greater than the minimal requirements set out by the RDA (recommended dietary allowance), to reach therapeutic levels at the tissues and affect cellular function. 
  • • IVs are not only more effective but easier than daily oral dosing: the patient gets a comprehensive blend in one single formulation. 


How often should you get an IV?

The frequency of therapy is dependent on each individual patient case and will be determined based on your medical history/needs, but often patients will come for an IV routinely between once a week to once a month.
