IV vitamin therapy is a trend that is quickly picking up steam, especially with celebrities. Simply put, IV therapy is a way of putting key vitamins and minerals into your bloodstream.

IV therapy is very versatile and is recommended for treatment of many different conditions, including cancer, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), asthma, and fibromyalgia.

How Does IV Vitamin Therapy Work?

IV vitamin therapy works by first inserting an IV needle into a person’s vein. The process takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending on which vitamins are being injected. Patients are encouraged to read, relax, listen to music, or meditate during the treatment.

The needle delivers different combinations of minerals, amino acids, and vitamins into the bloodstream. Vitamins are normally digested in the body, but through IV therapy, they are absorbed directly into the cells.

Benefits of IV Therapy

Vitamins are guaranteed to be absorbed – Some people who take medications or who suffer from medical issues have trouble absorbing vitamins. IV therapy is perfect for them, because the vitamins are absorbed into the bloodstream during the process, which lets their bodies utilize it immediately.

You will feel energized – Athletes who suffer from fatigue through regular muscle usage will benefit from IV therapy. IV therapy reduces the downtime athletes face with muscle recovery. In addition, people who suffer from chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and even common colds or respiratory illnesses can all benefit from IV therapy.

You will feel hydrated – IV vitamin therapy is a great way to prevent medical issues like kidney stones, constipation, and muscle damage. It will provide your body with hydration to support vital organ functions.

You will notice immediate results – Food takes up to two days to digest in our bodies. Since IV therapy works through injections, you will notice the positive effects immediately. Within a couple of hours, you will feel the full effects of the IV nutrients. Patients have reported being able to think more clearly as well as enjoying an improved mood.

It’s a natural shield to environmental toxins – Toxins in the environment take their toll on everyone’s health and appearance. IV therapy gives your body the tools to fight these negative toxins. Your body will enjoy the benefit of antioxidants, which will fight premature signs of aging as well as flush harmful toxins out of your body.

Good Candidates

If a person is allergic to a certain vitamin, they should be sure to eliminate that particular vitamin from the injection. Patients with high blood pressure and kidney diseases do not make good candidates for IV therapy.

Potential side effects are very mild compared to other therapies. You should make sure to consult your doctor immediately if you notice any burning sensations or red streaks near the injection site or experience a fever.
