Vitamins are necessary for the optimal function of our bodies and minds. Most vitamins and minerals are not produced by the body but are absorbed from the food we eat, but intensive methods of farming, intense processing have reduced the levels of nutrients in food significantly.
Why Take IV Vitamin Therapy Instead of Vitamin Supplements?
- Nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and the cells
- Only IV therapy can deliver high concentrations of vitamins and minerals
- IV therapy avoids side effects like upset stomach and diarrhea that may occur with high-dose oral vitamins.
- Oral supplements of vitamins and minerals can only do so much as our digestive system limits the absorption of high levels of nutrients consumed orally.
- Nutritional IV Therapy instead infuse vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream so they can be used directly where they are needed, optimizing our cells metabolism.
How do Vitamins and Minerals contribute to the normal function of our bodies?
- Maintain the immune system, including during and after intense physical exercise
- Protect cells from oxidative stress
- Contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system
- Help the Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Help Energy production
- Help the Maintenance of muscles, bones, teeth, skin and hair
Is Nutritional IV therapy safe?
Yes, absolutely. IV therapy is a very straightforward procedure, and IV treatments are administered by experienced nurses and under doctor’s supervision.
