IV Hydration/IV Nutrition

 Intravenous nutrient therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients and/or therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream.  It can be used to correct deficiencies, enhance immune function, increase energy, and/or as a preventative measure for anyone who is healthy and wants to stay healthy. 

Vitamin IV therapy and IV infusions allow various critical nutrients to be administered to the body intravenously. When vitamins and other essential nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive system, where many nutrients get lost and are not absorbed. With IV infusion and vitamin injections, nutrients and minerals can go to work, instantly replenishing and revitalizing your body and organs from the inside out.

When nutrients are able to bypass the digestive system in this way, you can be assured that you are receiving the nutrients your body needs, no essential vitamins or minerals are being overlooked in your diet, and that your body and organs are properly absorbing the vitamins and minerals you need. This method is especially beneficial for people experiencing digestive complications or irregularities, who may struggle with the natural absorption of certain nutrients and vitamins. While it is always important to choose foods rich in nutrients, it does not always mean that those vitamins and minerals are reaching your body to the fullest. Additionally, vitamin IV therapy allows larger quantities of vitamins to enter your system than can be safely tolerated orally.

Some of the specific benefits that patients experience include:

  • increased energy

  • an overall sense of well-being

  • improved sports performance

  • enhanced immune support

  • improved healing and recovery from sports wear and tear, cosmetic procedures, and surgery

  • stress relief

Is IV Injection Therapy Safe?

IV therapy has many benefits to its users. There are no known risks involved with the body’s ability to absorb a high concentration of vitamins and nutrients. However, there are a few minor risks associated with the needle injection itself. Some of these risks and side-effects are comparable to those of having blood drawn for a lab test or having an IV administered during a hospital procedure.

As with any similar procedure, there is a small risk that a vein wall could be perforated or ruptured by the needle due to vascular fragility. This can result in fluid leakage to the surrounding area and may temporarily cause slight swelling or bruising around the site of the injection; you may also experience a slight burning sensation surrounding the needle, which will dissipate when the IV is moved to another vein. If you have small or hard-to-locate veins or have experienced any previous difficulty with other intravenous injections or getting blood drawn, you may not be a good candidate for IV infusion.
