What is vitamin & mineral IV therapy?
If you are looking to boost your immune system, reduce the signs of aging, or looking to help cleanse your blood of toxins, then intravenous (IV) vitamin and mineral therapy offers you a solution. Vitamin and mineral intravenous therapy work by injecting the vitamins and minerals directly into your veins via an intravenous needle – meaning, a needle which is inserted directly into the vein.
These treatments are customizable, and the formula of vitamins and minerals used in the treatment can be changed or adjusted depending on the patient’s needs or what their goal is. Some of the currently popular treatments include ones that are formulated to help protect against the flu.
Sessions of vitamin and mineral intravenous therapy can take between thirty to ninety minutes, and the cost of an appointment can vary from between $55 up to $700, so it is important that you speak with your practitioner beforehand to discuss treatment options and the cost of treatment.
Does vitamin therapy work?
The practices behind vitamin and mineral intravenous therapy are not new, as intravenous therapy has been used for decades in the medical field. Predominantly, it is used to hydrate patients and administer nutrients if there is an issue with the gut’s ability to absorb them or if there are issues relating to surgery that might impair a patient’s ability to eat or drink. Frequently, certain nutrient deficiencies such as B12 or iron are treated with infusions under the supervision of a medical professional.
The biggest benefit to the vitamin and mineral intravenous therapies is that the vitamins and minerals are infused directly into the bloodstream, circumventing potential issues associated with oral administration. And since these vitamins and minerals are injected directly into the bloodstream, larger doses can be administered without the usual side-effects associated with using the gastrointestinal system – an example being that larger doses of vitamin C, which is highly beneficial to the immune system, can be administered safely without stomach side effects or complications.
