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.

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.
