Intravenous (IV) Therapy is a general term that covers all treatments delivered directly into the vein. This is commonly used in clinical practice to administer medicines, electrolytes, and water to dehydrated people. IV therapy has another essential function: to provide micronutrient and immune support directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body without denaturing critical compounds in the stomach. IV Therapy is the preferred method of administration given the quick way it delivers nutrients throughout the body, bypasses the digestive system, and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate (as opposed to only 20-50% possible orally).
IV therapy treats:
- Low energy levels
- Poor sleep
- Low nutrient levels
- And more!
