Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly through the bloodstream. This allows the digestive system to be bypassed and a higher dose of these substances to be administered than would be tolerated by oral supplementation. Most commonly, IV therapy is used in the treatment of fatigue, migraines, immune support & chronic infections, cancer, liver support/detoxification, and athletic performance and recovery.
The Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy
- Improve Your Energy: Vitamins, antioxidants, and electrolytes utilized together can create an IV fluid that will help boost your mental clarity and energy levels.
- Support Immune Function: Vitamins, antioxidants, and hydration utilized together can create an IV fluid that will help improve your immune system response.
- Reduce Stress and Anxiety: Stress and anxiety start to mount once cortisol is released into your bloodstream. IV Vitamin Therapy allows you to get the right amount of nutrients and vitamins into your bloodstream to combat the effects of cortisol.
- 100% Nutrient Absorption: The digestive tract leaves our bodies with an approximate 50% absorption level from ingestion. IV Vitamin Therapy allows us to skip the digestive tract and get 100% absorption directly into the bloodstream.
