What Are Vitamin IV’s and Are They Worth It?
Once an uncommon experience reserved for doctors offices, and ER trips, vitamin IV infusions are suddenly all the rage, being done as a preventative and proactive way to stay healthy. Before jumping headfirst into an IV you may be wondering, is it really worth it?
Here’s what you need to know about Vitamin IV’s
IV formulas contain a variety of vitamins and minerals that are designed to aid in the relief of symptoms and help keep you in tip-top shape. Although the nutrients may differ all IVs have two basic components:
- Saline solution: A sterile mixture of sodium chloride and water that hydrates the body and facilitates the delivery of medication and vitamins.
- Supplements: Organic nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants that the body uses to maintain normal function, and which must be obtained from an outside source such as food, drink, or an IV.
Why is an IV better than taking a supplement?
You may be thinking, why should I get an IV when I take so many supplements? Although you may be taking supplements, you may not be absorbing the nutrients completely. With an IV drip vitamins and minerals are administered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system, making nutrients available for immediate use. Because nutrients and supplements are delivered directly to the cells that need them, IV drips have the potential to impact and improve the function of a wide variety of body systems.
With such high concentrations of vital nutrients working on a cellular level there can be an improvement in many conditions including the following:
