What You Need to Know About IV Therapy


A safe and efficient approach to getting nourishment, vitamins, and medications into your bloodstream is through IV (intravenous) nutrition therapy. Since this method bypasses the digestive system, all nutrients are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream.

If you’re wondering if IV therapy is a good fit, keep reading. This blog covers what it is, its benefits, and how to get started.

What is IV Nutrition Therapy?

An IV drip typically consists of three components: an IV bag, a hollow needle, and a long tubing connecting the IV bag to the needle. First, a healthcare professional inserts the hollow needle into a vein in your arm or hand. The IV therapy fluids then flow from the bag through the tubing, the needle, and into your vein.

Next, your bloodstream immediately receives the liquid’s vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Each session lasts about 30 minutes, and it’s the perfect time to relax, read, and enjoy music. 

Benefits of IV Nutrition Therapy 


1. Efficient Way to Take Vital Nutrients

When vitamins are taken orally, they require digestion and processing before nutrients may enter the bloodstream and be absorbed. Some people have poor digestive absorption of vitamins which hinders the efficient conversion of nutrients into energy that cells can use.

Digestion is not a factor in IV treatment. Nutrients are instantaneously available, allowing your body to absorb them before sending the remainder to your kidneys for elimination. The nutrient breakdown does not occur, nor is there a waiting period.

2. Improved Health and Well-Being

Your body needs specific vitamins, minerals, and nutrients daily to function normally. But, the rigors of daily life might make it challenging to consume enough of these crucial vitamins. By providing your body with the nutrients necessary to stay healthy, IV nutrition therapy can help your physical and mental wellness. Plus, it is a relief for depression and anxiety. 

You will feel better, get sick less often, and perform better when your body gets the proper proportion of vitamins and nutrients for regular function.

Additionally, many IV nutrition therapy patients report a notable, unexpected increase in energy. As a result of the energy boost, you’re less likely to reach for unhealthy energy drinks or sugary snacks.

3. Encourages Weight Loss

Losing weight can be challenging, despite diet and exercise. An IV infusion of nutrients, such as Alpha-lipoic acid, can encourage a more significant metabolism. And help you lose weight by transforming fat into pure fuel at the cellular level.

4. Quick Relief from Hangover

Alcohol is a diuretic which means it causes water loss in the body. Since hangover symptoms are primarily caused by dehydration, using IV therapy after a night out is a great cure. 

The potent mix of electrolytes and vitamins will help you get your day back on track by replenishing your body at a cellular level and helping reduce exhaustion, anxiety, or nausea symptoms. 

5. Effective Immune System Support

Stress, sleep deprivation, lack of exercise, and a bad diet can affect your immune system. The likelihood of illness increases as your immune system deteriorates, particularly during the cold and flu season. IV nutrition therapy boosts immunity by giving your body the nutrition required to fend off disease. 

6. Supports Healthy Skin

IV vitamin therapy can be an excellent alternative for more invasive skin care procedures. The combination of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, administered intravenously (IV), can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, repair UV damage, and eliminate free radicals that cause tissue damage—restoring a youthful-looking glow while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. 

7. Post-Workout Recovery

Rigorous exercise can drain the body, leaving you feeling exhausted, dehydrated, and sore. IV vitamin therapy replenishes fluids and provides the nutrients required for a quick recovery. The combination of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids helps you feel better and repair tissue damage, while fluids help with rehydration on a cellular level.

IV therapy is a quick and efficient way to get the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need to help you look and feel great. If you’re interested in learning more, please schedule a consultation online or call us at (631) 482-9880
