Understanding Vitamin IV Therapy
Vitamin IV therapy is the process of injecting a liquid mixture of minerals and vitamins via a small tube inserted into a vein. This method allows for quicker absorption directly into the bloodstream, producing higher levels of vitamins and minerals than other means of absorption. This is due to multiple factors affecting the body's ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach, such as age, health status, genetics, metabolism, and more.
Since it is a relatively quick and easy way to deliver fluids or medication in the body's circulation, various forms of IV therapy have been in use by doctors and nurses for over a hundred years. A pharmacist will typically mix the solution according to the doctor's orders, while a qualified nurse or healthcare professional will access a vein to secure the needle in place. They will then monitor the vitamin infusion to ensure everything is administered properly.
Conditions Treated by Vitamin IV Therapy
There are several conditions that can benefit from vitamin IV therapy. Here at Nuceria Health, we are proud to offer treatments for athletic performance, anti-aging and beauty, immune boosting, weight loss, hangover cures, and sexual support. Vitamin IV therapy can supplement athletes with the fluids and minerals they need during the recovery phase, allowing them to return to peak performance sooner than usual.
We also use the most optimal vitamins and minerals for anti-aging and beauty, leading to fewer instances of acne, blemishes, dry skin, and wrinkles — and leaving patients with noticeably plumper, younger-looking skin. Additionally, certain antioxidants give us the ability to help patients boost their immune systems, metabolisms, and sexual response. The quick absorption allowed by vitamin IV therapy also makes it a perfect hangover cure.
Vitamins or Minerals Used in Vitamin IV Therapy
We take a personalized approach to IV therapy to ensure that each patient gets what they need — and none of what they do not. Even better, according to Healthline, there is an unlimited amount of vitamins that IV therapy can work to infuse into the body. However, the best vitamins for this treatment are those that occur naturally and can be measured at a healthy dose.
Some vitamins and minerals commonly used in vitamin IV therapy include B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium. They also occasionally include amino acids and antioxidants like glutathione. Our team members can help determine which cocktail of vitamins and minerals is best for each patient's needs and desired results.
Risks of Vitamin IV Therapy
Though vitamin IV therapy is a generally safe procedure, there is always a risk of infection whenever an IV is inserted into the body. This is because it creates a direct path into the bloodstream. As such, anything that is carried through the IV bypasses the skin — the body's primary defense mechanism against bacteria. Our team will ensure all necessary precautions for our patients.
While the risk of infection is small, it is essential to seek out an experienced, licensed medical professional for the procedure. Additionally, there is the risk of receiving too much of a special vitamin or mineral. This may increase the risk of adverse effects. General risks associated with vitamin IV therapy include blood clots, vein irritation, and inflammation (the latter of which may be painful).
