What are IV nutrition therapies?

Your body needs a wide variety of vitamins and nutrients to thrive, but getting everything you need from food alone is not always possible. IV nutrition therapies allow you to nourish your body efficiently and effectively. 

You may be familiar with the use of intravenous (IV) therapy in emergency rooms or hospital settings. This method of delivery allows medical professionals to infuse your bloodstream with hydration and medications. The process uses a needle, thin medical tubing, and an IV bag filled with a liquid solution. 

In wellness applications, IV nutrition allows practitioners to deliver a customized blend of nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This method allows your body to make use of them immediately. 

Some of the uses of IV nutrition therapy may include:

  • Hangover relief
  • Immune boost
  • Fatigue relief
  • Workout recovery
  • Performance enhancement
  • Cognitive clarity
  • Weight loss 

During your consultation, you’ll learn which IV nutrition options may be suitable for you. 

What are the benefits of IV nutrition?

Many people go through every day in a state of mild dehydration. IV nutrition delivers a powerful hydration boost directly into your bloodstream. Some people who try IV nutrition therapy report an immediate boost in energy and mental alertness. 

To be able to get the nutrients your body needs from food sources, you’d need to consume large quantities of fruit, vegetables, and lean proteins every day. You can get additional nutrients in your diet through supplements. Still, numerous studies show that a significant portion of supplements pass completely through your digestive tract without being broken down. 

The nutrients within your customized IV nutrition therapy are delivered directly into your bloodstream. This means your body can make use of them right away, without waiting for your digestive system to break them down into accessible parts. 

Is IV nutrition therapy painful?

Under the care of a skilled medical professional, having an IV placed is not a painful procedure. Once you arrive and are comfortable in the treatment chair, your practitioner uses a hollow needle to access your vein. 

The needle places a thin piece of tubing within one of your veins. Once in place, this tubing is secured to your skin using a small piece of surgical tape. The other end is connected to a bag that contains your IV nutrition solution. 

This system slowly delivers the IV solution into your bloodstream one drip at a time. The entire process takes approximately one hour, and you can relax, read, or listen to music during your treatment. There’s no need for any downtime, and you can return to your normal routines right after your visit.
