IV Vitamin Therapy Q&A


What is vitamin therapy?

If you’ve ever visited a hospital or urgent care center, you’re probably familiar with intravenous (IV) therapy. This approach uses a thin medical tube called a catheter to deliver medications directly into your bloodstream. 

 

A hollow needle places the catheter inside a vein on your wrist or hand. The other end of that tubing is connected to a bag containing a solution of saline and customized micronutrients. This solution slowly drips through the tubing and into your bloodstream, where it goes to work, nourishing and hydrating your body at a cellular level. 

 

IV vitamin therapy can deliver a wide range of benefits, depending on the specific nutrients incorporated into your treatment. Some of the areas of focus for IV vitamin therapy include:

 

  • Hangover relief
  • Immune boost
  • Enhanced cognitive function
  • Skin condition
  • Fatigue fighting
  • Workout recovery
  • Detox
  • Weight loss

 

These are just a few of the options available within IV vitamin therapy. Many people come in for a simple boost of vitamins and nutrients without a specific area of concern.   

What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

 

You can certainly get most of the nutrients your body needs through food sources alone. However, you need to have the time and resources to plan your meals, shop for groceries, and prep your food. Many people simply lack the time in their weekly schedule to create and consume a diet filled with high-quality, whole foods. 

 

You can take supplements to enrich your diet, but there are so many different options on the market many people have no idea where to begin. In addition, an expansive body of evidence shows that a substantial portion of supplement tablets and capsules travel completely through your digestive system without being broken down and used. 

 

IV vitamin therapy offers the chance to boost your nutrition with high-quality ingredients. By delivering those nutrients directly into your bloodstream, your digestive tract is avoided entirely. 

Is IV vitamin therapy painful?

 

In the hands of a trained medical professional, IV placement is not a painful process. It takes just a few seconds to set the catheter inside a targeted vein. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but there is no significant pain. 

 

Once in place, a small piece of surgical tape holds the catheter in position throughout your treatment. You can listen to music, read, or just relax while your customized IV vitamin solution slowly enters your bloodstream. 

 

Instead of being uncomfortable, many people report feeling an almost immediate energy boost during their treatments. IV nutrition therapy also restores optimal hydration in less than an hour.
