IV Therapy Q & A

What makes an IV better than oral supplements?

When you take oral supplements, they travel through your gastrointestinal tract, which limits the amount of the nutrients that are absorbed.

Even if you’re perfectly healthy, your small intestine can only absorb a specific amount of some nutrients at one time. You could swallow a mega-dose of nutrients, but it wouldn’t help because only a small percentage of the dose makes it into your bloodstream.

However, your nutrient absorption can also be impeded by conditions such as pancreatic enzyme deficiency, inflammatory bowel disease, and low stomach acid.

An IV infusion avoids digestion and absorption problems. The nutrients delivered in the infusion go directly into your bloodstream. As a result, you gain the benefit of the full therapeutic dose that’s efficiently distributed to cells throughout your body.

What are the health benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy rapidly replaces nutrients, boosting your energy, strengthening your immune system, and enhancing sports performance. It also improves healing from injuries and helps with a range of health conditions, including migraines, the common cold, chronic pain, and fatigue.

Under certain conditions, your body uses more nutrients than normal, which depletes your supply and leaves a deficiency. Extreme stress is the overriding cause, which itself comes from many sources.

Intensive athletic training, injury, illness, surgery, and chronic pain can all quickly deplete your nutrients. Periods of depression and anxiety also affect your nutritional status.

What types of IV therapy are available?

What is injection therapy?

Injection therapy in another means of delivering nutrtion to your body that does not involve an IV drip, but rather a single injection or series of intramuscular (IM) injections directly to your body.

  • Vitamin D: Supports bone health and helps produce testosterone
