IV Therapy Q & A
Why should I consider IV therapy?
IV therapy delivers nutrients, electrolytes, and antioxidants straight into your bloodstream. As a result, you gain two benefits that you don’t get with oral supplements: The beneficial substances you need are quickly carried throughout your body, and your body gets the full dose.
When you swallow a supplement, it takes longer to reach your small intestine and make it into your bloodstream. Several problems can occur along your digestive path that prevent the full dose from getting through.
For example, low stomach acid, inflammatory bowel disease, and lack of digestive enzymes all inhibit absorption, so you won’t get the full dose. Another concern is that your small intestine can absorb only a small amount of certain nutrients at one time. If you need a higher dose, IV therapy is the best way to get it.
What overall health benefits will I gain from IV therapy?
Your body can’t function properly without the range of essential nutrients needed to support your metabolism. When you’re sick, suffer an injury, or you’re under constant stress, your body uses more nutrients than normal, which means you can quickly develop a deficiency.
Depending on the type of IV infusion you receive, you may experience:
- Increased energy
- Reduced stress
- Stronger immune system
- Improved athletic performance
- Faster healing following an injury or surgery
IV therapy can help your body rehydrate, detoxify, and fight free radicals that cause inflammation and chronic diseases.
