Intravenous therapy (“IV therapy”) is a treatment that delivers a liquid substance directly into the bloodstream, via the vein. The administration of the therapy can be via infusions (a drip that uses only the pressure supplied by gravity) or injections (with a syringe at higher pressures). This liquid substance is a fluid solution that can be altered to include a balanced source of amino acids, mineral, and vitamins.
Applying fluids enriched with amino acids, vitamins, and mineral via the intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver them throughout the body. Therefore, IV therapy is a revolutionary way to take supplements when you want to reach and maintain your optimal health. It can replace taking pills and tablets on a daily basis, which is not as effective as you may think it is. When you ingest vitamins by mouth, only 15% of the active nutrients are absorbed and enter your bloodstream, where they can be used. The rest are excreted out of the body.
Another benefit of opting for a IV drip is that the solution bypasses your stomach and intestines, achieving higher levels of nutrients that can be delivered to your cells without you suffering from side effects. For example, high oral intake levels of Vitamin C and Magnesium can cause you to have an upset stomach, cramps, nausea, and/or diarrhoea.
