If you’ve ever been to the emergency room or stayed the night at a hospital, you have probably had at least one form of intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapy is a way of introducing medications, liquids and nutrients into the body quickly and effectively. It’s been trusted by medical professionals as one of the best ways to treat people suffering from dehydration for many decades already. Today, there are a variety of vitamin infused cocktails to choose from that can provide you with quick energy and much more.
How Is IV Therapy Conducted?
We conduct intravenous therapy sessions by following the same safety protocols used in hospitals and emergency rooms. The vitamin drip will be delivered into your body through a specially designed needle called an IV catheter.
Not all IV therapy clinics are the same. You need to know that your therapy is being conducted by a health professional with the right certifications. We conduct thorough health evaluations before clearing our patients for the IV therapy procedure. When we hold a consultation with a patient, we ask direct questions concerning their medical histories. Our staff members make sure there is no previous medical condition or current health issues that might reduce the effectiveness of therapy.
Why Is IV Therapy Effective?
When you bypass the digestive process and deliver nutrients into the body directly through the veins, the nutrients are absorbed more quickly and at full strength. Although the digestive process is necessary when it comes to absorbing nutrients from solid foods, it’s not necessary for the absorption of nutrients contained in an IV solution. The vitamins and minerals can be used immediately by the body, especially if it’s an energy infusion containing B vitamins and vitamin C.
While oral vitamin supplements can be beneficial, the body usually doesn’t absorb all the nutrients in them. A good bit of it gets washed away with the water that was used to consume it! Furthermore, when a vitamin taken orally goes through the stomach and digestive tract, only about 50 percent of it is actually absorbed by the body and used. This can be much less if too much liquid is consumed immediately afterwards, as is often the case. If the vitamins are given intravenously, about 90 percent of the nutrients are absorbed.
