How does IV Vitamin Therapy work?
IV Vitamin Therapy works by administration of vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bioavailability of vitamins via IV infusion. Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection, so there is no GI metabolism, which also allows for increased absorption. With oral supplements, you only get about 20% absorption after filtering through your digestive system, which clearly pales in comparison to IV vitamins.
How long does IV Drip Therapy last?
After an IV infusion, the vitamins remain in your system and maintain your levels for 2-3 weeks.
How often should I have an IV Drip?
The frequency of IV Drip therapy is determined on a patient-by-patient basis, we take a customized approach to suit your individual needs. Some patients get progressively better, and after a series of treatments, they no longer require ongoing weekly IV therapy, only monthly treatments to maintain balance. Other patients need regular vitamin injections in order to help alleviate symptoms of their chronic or common medical conditions.
