Licensed naturopathic physicians use IV vitamin therapy as a tool to replenish a patient’s
micronutrient and nutritional status. Studies have found that IV vitamins can be a great way
to improve many health conditions and achieve optimal health and wellness. IV vitamin
therapy is an effective and efficient treatment at replenishing vitamins and minerals because
it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for 100 percent absorption.
Food or medications such as multivitamins, must be chewed or swallowed whole. They
pass down the esophagus to the stomach where the acidic environment begins the
breakdown. The small intestine then starts the process of digestion and absorption.
Enzymes break the food stuff down into their smaller molecular pieces, and eventually to
amino acids (the building blocks of proteins).
The small intestine absorbs these amino acids, and passes them into the blood where they
are carried to the liver. The liver acts as our primary detoxification organ. It receives
everything that we put into our body and processes it to be transported in the blood or
excreted as urine or stool.
Assimilating the vitamins and minerals from our food is a long and complex process.
There are many steps that can be interrupted, and this is where vitamin IV therapy
comes in.100 percent absorption is ensured through IV vitamin therapy because the
vitamins and minerals can be administered directly to the blood. Therefore, many
different types of patients can benefit from vitamin therapy, and much more efficiently
than by taking food or medication orally.
What are the benefits of IV vitamins?
The benefits of IV vitamin therapy are many! As discussed above, nutrients traveling
through the digestive system can have many interruptions or problems. Because IV
vitamin therapy bypasses this system, 100 percent absorption of the vitamins and
minerals can be achieved. For this reason, vitamin IV therapy can correct micronutrient
deficiencies. This improves the overall nutritional status of an individual, allowing for the
relief of many symptoms.
Some benefits include:
● Increased energy
● Reduced symptoms of stress
