IV vitamin therapy, or intravenous vitamin therapy, is a procedure in which vitamins and minerals are sent directly to the bloodstream. It has a number of benefits, including quick relief from jet lag, hangovers, and flu.
IV vitamin therapy can leave you with increased energy levels, reduced stress and headaches, proper hydration, healthier skin, and shortened recovery from injuries. It is also known to improve the symptoms associated with depression and anxiety. IV vitamin therapy is frequently used by athletes.
IV Vitamin Therapy vs. Taking Vitamins Orally
To many people, IV therapy sounds like a fancier and more expensive way of taking vitamins and minerals that could be taken orally. However, this is not the case. Taking your vitamins intravenously and taking them orally are two completely different processes.
When you take vitamins and minerals orally, they require more time to take effect. This is because, when ingested orally, these supplements have to first pass down your food pipe into the stomach, where they are broken down with the help of stomach acids.
The fragments then move down to the small intestine, where they are digested and absorbed by the enzymes present in the small intestine. The enzymes further break down the fragments until they are nothing but amino acids, which are then passed on to the bloodstream.
This is a long process that involves a lot of breakdown. In IV vitamin therapy, on the other hand, there is 100-percent absorption of the nutrients, since the vitamins are administered directly into the bloodstream. This increases the benefits obtained from vitamins and minerals.
What Are the Different Kinds of IV Vitamins?
IV vitamins come in many combinations commonly referred to as cocktails. Each cocktail is a different combination of vitamins and minerals and serves different purposes. Vitamin cocktails are a relatively new approach to the consumption of vitamins and minerals.
Here are some of the most commonly used vitamin cocktails:
The Myers Cocktail: The Myers Cocktail is one of the most popular vitamin cocktails. It consists of Vitamin C tapioca, Vitamin B complex, Magnesium Sulfate, Trace-Min-5, and Glutathione. This cocktail can be used to treat conditions like a chronic migraine. It is named after its creator, Dr. John Myers.
The Fat Burner: As the name suggests, the Fat Burner uses the fats and carbohydrates stored in the body to produce energy. When this happens, the patient gradually starts losing fat. The Fat Burner consists of water-soluble compounds such as Cyanocobalamin (B12) and MIC (Methionine Inositol Choline).
The Spark: The Spark is a vitamin drip meant to replenish your body. It helps with quick relief and recovery. Patients who experience fatigue and jet lag are often administered this vitamin cocktail so that they are back up on their feet in no time.
