Nutritional IV Therapy
Nutritional IV therapy is the therapeutic administration of vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. Intravenous administration bypasses the absorption limitations of the patient’s gastrointestinal tract. This means that the nutrients are 100% absorbed and immediately available to your body. This causes them to have extremely powerful healing effects that are not possible with oral supplementation.
“When the daily intake of [oral] vitamin C is increased 12-fold, from 200 mg/day to 2,500 mg/day, the plasma concentration increases by only 25 percent, from 1.2 to 1.5 mg/dL”(1). The highest serum concentration of vitamin C that has ever been recorded via oral supplementation is 9.3mg/dl.
Conversely, with IV administration, it is possible to raise plasma vitamin C to concentrations over 80mg/dl. Vitamin C has been shown to exhibit antiviral effects, but at levels that can only be reached through IV administration.
Like vitamin C, many nutrients have been found to exhibit potent disease fighting effects at concentrations that can only be reached with IV supplementation. Nutritional IV therapy is a safe and effective therapy for improving your health. IV therapy can be beneficial for:
- General health maintenance
- Chronic viral infections
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Cardiovascular disease
- Muscle spasms
- Alcohol/drug addictions
