What is IV Nutrient Therapy and why go to IV Therapy Clinics?
IV Nutrient Therapy (aka IV Therapy Clinics) is the process of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients being administered directly into the bloodstream (intravenously infused) through an IV drip. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of many health problems such as infections, fatigue, heart disease and even cancer. For healthy individuals, IV Therapy is great for advancing health and preventing illness.
Typically, nutrients reach your cells through the process of digestion. Your gastrointestinal (GI) tract breaks down the food you eat or medication you swallow and passes the nutrients along to the blood through the lining of the GI tract. If your digestion is weak or if your gut cannot process high concentrations of a nutrient, your gut can become upset or merely excrete the nutrient without sending it along to the blood, where it can reach the cells that need it. When nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the GI and are carried directly to the cells in need via the blood.
Intravenous treatments (IV Therapy Clinics) are exceptionally effective because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues and loss of potency. In addition, very large doses can be administered via IV without gastrointestinal side effects, which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.
