Intravenous vitamin therapy has received a great deal of press recently for it’s health benefits. From Hollywood to the NFL more and more people are looking at injecting high dose vitamins to strengthen immunity, improve energy and prolong the effects of aging. IV vitamin therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions.
Advantages of Intravenous Vitamin Therapy:
When you take vitamins and minerals orally (by mouth) even if you have optimal digestion and absorption your body is limited by the amount of nutrient it can absorb. Many people have less than optimal digestion and do not absorb nutrients well. By injecting vitamins and mineral intravenously you are able to receive a high, sometimes therapeutic dose of a substance. IV therapy also has fewer side effects than oral vitamins such as stomach upset, flushing, and diarrhea. Also, the nutrients are delivered directly to the cells through the bloodstream. This makes IV therapy a fast, more effective method of delivering nutrients to the body.
