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.
