Intravenous Vitamin Therapy

You may be wondering what the difference is between taking vitamins intravenously vs. the more common pill form.IV_photo


People who suffer from inadequate amounts of vitamins and minerals not only suffer from reduced immune function and exhibit many vague complaints such as fatigue, insomnia, decreased sex drive, etc. is often the result of malnutrition. This can appear on their skin. Breakouts, uneven skin tone, dull skin, flaky skin and eczema are often the result of malnutrition and unabsorbed nutrients.


Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) is the administration of liquid solutions directly into a vein. In the case of a Vitamin IV, the vitamins are injected directly into your bloodstream, rather than absorbed through your stomach after being routed through your digestive system.


The direct route offers far better absorption than the vitamins you can take in pill, tablet or liquid form.


For example, digestive diseases are extremely prevalent and may prevent proper digestion of minerals and vitamins. Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, colitis, ulcers and diarrhea can all prevent proper absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream.


Arthritis Formulations, Energy Formulations, Hormonal Replacement Formulations, Anti-Allergy Formulations, Anti-Aging Formulations and Chelation Therapy to either replace, restore or maintain the body’s abilities and enhance the body’s performance.


Another example of why IV vitamins may be better than pill form is for Celiacs. Celiacs are those people who for genetic reasons lack the proper enzymes to digest gluten in their gastrointestinal tract. Gluten is the stuff in breads and crackers that keeps everything together. Celiacs, when they eat gluten found in breads and other common foods, get stomach aches and other ailments.


Sometimes this includes diarrhea and stomach pain. The most important repercussion of eating gluten is the stomach’s inability to absorb nutrients for up to two days from the gastrointestinal tract. The cilia in the stomach lining 'lays down' and doesn't absorb, so Celiacs who are taking vitamins in pill form are unable to absorb the vitamins and the benefit of having taken anything at all passed through the GI tract.
