What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
- Posted on: Aug 26 2014
Most of us are aware that vitamins, such as vitamin C, are beneficial in the prevention of illness as well as in helping our bodies to more quickly recover from an illness. It is difficult for the body to absorb vitamin doses large enough to get the desired effect when taken orally. Since the stomach has a threshold of how much it can absorb, it is not possible to get enough of the vitamins into your bloodstream without by passing the digestive system.
How Does IV Therapy Solve This Problem?
IV vitamin therapy is the act of delivering high doses of vitamins Intravenously. Intravenous delivery allows you to bypass the digestive system and get all of the vitamins directly into your bloodstream and delivered to cells! The body can also begin to use these vitamins instantly since there is no wait time for the vitamins to pass through your digestive system.
