What is Intravenous (IV) therapy?
IV therapy utilizes vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids to support the body’s ability to heal itself. When suffering from various illnesses, absorption of nutrients is low since the cells in the body are not functioning optimally nor does the body have the adequate building blocks to help the cells heal and recover. This is where IV therapy can help.
Intravenous, meaning “in the vein,” directly delivers high concentrations of nutrients into the circulatory system, bypassing the digestive tract. The concentration gradient it creates in the body allows the nutrients to flow passively into our cells, with little or no effort from the body. The cells are then provided with higher concentrations of nutrients then can be attained by the GI tract absorption when using oral supplementation. With IV therapy, the cells can heal and repair quicker, restoring its functionality.
When using IV therapy, we focus on providing the highest quality and most activated forms of nutrients. They are given in therapeutic doses to correct any nutrient deficiencies and the associated symptoms.
