IV therapy where IV stands for “intravenous” or “inside the vein” is a technique used to deliver fluids, nutrition, or medication directly into a person’s vein.
Off late IV Therapies have become very popular and are sought by many health and fitness enthusiasts around the world. It can be used to help with some conditions such as nutrient deficiencies, boosting the immune system, increasing energy levels, and fighting oxidative stress.
By administering therapeutic doses of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids into the veins directly, your body’s tissues can absorb more than through oral administration.
Unlike traditional methods of nutrient delivery such as oral supplements, IV infusion therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal tract which allows for 100% nutrient absorption into the bloodstream. This also allows for a reduction of side effects such as cramping and diarrhea which can occur with some oral supplements.
While a well-balanced diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals is necessary for optimal health, many patients require supplementation to achieve a therapeutic benefit. IV Therapy is able to fill in this nutrient gap, safely and effectively.
Some other benefits seen with IV Therapy are:
- General hydration
- Detoxification of multiple organs
- Restores energy levels
- Immune boosting
- Enhanced cognitive performance
- Athletic recovery
- Reduces signs of Ageing
