Vitamin Therapy Q & A

What is vitamin therapy?

Most people think of a shelf filled with supplement bottles when they hear the term vitamin therapy. There’s another option, however, that offers numerous benefits over oral supplementation. 

Intravenous vitamin therapy is a treatment that delivers carefully balanced nutrients directly into your bloodstream, where they can go to work enhancing your health and wellness. Your practitioner performs an intake evaluation to understand your specific needs prior to creating your customized vitamin therapy plan. 

What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

You can and should get many of your nutrients through high-quality food sources. However, even the most conscientious consumer often falls far short of the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

Intravenous vitamin therapy offers a solution that ensures you get the nutrients you need to thrive. Even better, those vitamins are delivered in a saline solution, which gives you an instant hydration boost that simply cannot be matched by oral hydration. 

Intravenous vitamin therapy bypasses your digestive system. With traditional oral supplements, not all of the ingredients are broken down during digestion. That means you will literally flush many of those nutrients right down the toilet, and your hard-earned money with them. 

What can I expect from vitamin therapy?

After performing an exam and reviewing your health history and treatment goals, your practitioner will discuss the role that vitamin therapy can play in your health and wellness.

Some of the nutrients that might be included in your custom blend include:

  • B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12
  • C
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Folic acid
  • Calcium
  • Glutathione
  • Biotin

Getting IV vitamin therapy takes very little time and is a painless procedure. You may feel a pinch as the needle goes in, but there is no significant discomfort. There’s no need for advanced preparation and no recovery time. You can get right back into the swing of your normal daily routines immediately after your visit. 

Professional vitamin therapy can help relieve stress, improve fatigue, boost the quality of your sleep, kick start your immune system, help you recover from athletic endeavors, and decrease cognitive issues like brain fog.

    • nutraMetrix Vitamin D with K2
      nutraMetrix Isotonix Vitamin D® with K2 contains vitamin D3, the metabolically active form of vitamin D, along with vitamin K2, a form of vitamin K which supports vascular health and calcium utilization. Vitamin D plays an important role in bone health, heart health and immune support, while working with vitamin K to support normal absorption of calcium and promote healthy arteries.  

    • nutraMetrix Isotonix Vitamin C
      Will nutraMetrix Isotonix Vitamin C enhance my immune system?
      Yes, in several ways, actually. Vitamin C has been heralded for quite possibly being the best immune system supporter and antioxidant available today. People who take daily doses of vitamin C can boost their immune system. Vitamin C supports the immune system by protecting the body from free radical damage. As a water-soluble vitamin, ascorbic acid performs its antioxidant functions within the aqueous compartments of the blood and inside cells and can help restore the antioxidant potential of vitamin E (a fat-soluble antioxidant). Support of immune cell function is also a key role performed by vitamin C.   

    • nutraMetrix Isotonix Maximum Orac
      nutraMetrix® Isotonix® Maximum ORAC Formula is an isotonic-capable supplement composed of a powerful blend of blueberries, raspberries, cranberries and elderberries, black currant, pomegranate, plum, vitamins C and E (natural tocopherol, tocotrienols) and Bioperine® (black pepper extract). Bioperine promotes the bioavailability of certain nutrients, especially antioxidants, to promote the absorption into the cells lining of the small intestine. In order to get 3000 ORAC units through food, one would have to consume a cup of blueberries per day. The CDC and NCI recommend five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day. For most individuals, this is difficult to do and supplementing becomes vitally important. One capful of Maximum ORAC supplies 3000 ORAC units. nutraMetrix Isotonix Maximum ORAC is intended to be used for its specially selected antioxidant properties.
