IV or Intravenous therapy introduces vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into the veins bypassing the gastrointestinal (GI) system completely for 100% absorption by the body.
Introduction to IV Therapy
First and foremost, what even is IV therapy? IV or Intravenous therapy introduces vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into the individuals veins. This method bypasses the gastrointestinal (GI) system completely for 100% absorption by the body. Therefore, IV therapy is far superior to taking oral supplements that typically have much lower absorption rate.
There are several factors that can affect your GI systems ability to fully absorb all those supplements you take. These factors include things like age, metabolism, personal health status, the supplement’s physical and chemical makeup as well as genetics. There are 52 genes that are currently known to impact nutrient needs. For example, there is a genetic variation of the GPX-1 gene that affects over 30% of the population that requires additional selenium intake in order for that gene to produce a protein that protects us from the damaging effects of free radicals. Along with genetics, drugs administered orally, once absorbed, can be inactivated by enzymes in the gut wall and liver (first-pass or presystemic metabolism) before reaching the systemic circulation and body tissues in general.
Why choose IV Therapy?
IV therapy makes it possible for people to quickly get an instant boost of energy and improve their mental and physical health. The bioavailability of IV supplements is 100% - meaning that 100% of the vitamins and minerals that you are supplementing intravenously will be absorbed in your body. There are several different vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can be administered through an IV. Including:
