What Is IV Therapy?
While there has been plenty of buzz around IV Therapy, many of us are still discovering what it is and how it works. So what is IV therapy? IV therapy is a technique for delivering vitamins and fluids intravenously: the nutrients are administered directly into a recipient’s veins via infusion, often called a drip. This direct method bypasses digestion, which allows the nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
What to Expect During Your IV Therapy Experience
IV Therapy takes place at a medical office with a licensed medical professional guiding you through the process. Upon arrival you will be welcomed to your private room. The IV therapist inserts the IV, carefully assessing you and ensuring the precise dosage of vitamins, nutrients, or fluid. During the IV process, the IV therapist will monitor to ensure the correct delivery and that the IV stays in place. IV rooms offer entertainment options such as Netflix and Apple TV.
How Long Does IV Therapy Take to Work?
The length of time for your therapy will depend on the type of IV. IV Therapy generally takes from 35 minutes to 50 minutes to administer.
No time for an IV? Try Booster Injections
These faster injections are great for strengthening immunity, boosting energy, and improving overall mood via highest quality vitamin infusions. Examples include a B-complex for an energy boost or a precise combination of vitamins to improve metabolism.
How Is IV Therapy Better Than Oral Supplements
IV Therapy is faster and more effective than oral administration. When we take a vitamin orally (by mouth), that vitamin breaks down in the stomach and digestive tract, limiting how much can be fully received, approximately 50 percent. IV therapy, on the other hand, delivers nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream circumventing the gut so that your body absorbs closer to 90% of the essential nutrients and vitamins.
Vitamins & Fluids Offered in an IV Therapy Bag
IV Therapy solutions can contain saline, vitamins, and minerals.
- The base ingredient of an IV bag is usually Saline solution. Saline consists of water and sodium chloride and delivers the vitamins and minerals of your IV therapy. Saline also assists in hydrating the body.
- Myers’ Cocktail is a formula of vitamins and minerals that was pioneered by Dr.John Myers, MD. The “cocktail” includes magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins, and Vitamin C. Myer’s Cocktail is used as the base combination of nutrients in many IV therapies.
