IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a treatment where the Wellness and Surgery team delivers a mixture of fluids, vitamins, nutrients, and, in some cases, medications through an intravenous drip. 

With IV therapy, you can immediately rehydrate, revitalize, and rejuvenate your body by restoring healthy levels of the vitamins and nutrients you're missing. 

What conditions does IV therapy treat?

IV therapy is an excellent way to improve your general wellness, as well as:

  • Recovering from illness
  • Overcoming dehydration
  • Improving your energy level
  • Recovering from jetlag
  • Fighting headaches

There are a variety of different benefits that come with each particular vitamin and nutrient. The team can customize your IV therapy for your particular situation. 

What types of IV therapy are available?

Wellness and Surgery offers a variety of wellness-boosting vitamins and nutrients in their IV therapy treatments. Common inclusions are:

B complex

B vitamins, like vitamin B-12, help with many aspects of healthy bodily function, including energy level, metabolic rate, and brain function.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps you produce soft tissues within your body. It's also an antioxidant that can protect you from environmental damage. Vitamin C can help you recover when injured, as well. 

Glutathione

Made from various amino acids, glutathione aids in many bodily processes, such as creating proteins and chemicals, tissue building and repair, and maintaining your immune system. 

Unfortunately, most Americans don't get the necessary vitamins and nutrients through their diet alone. 

When you're leading a busy life, you might not always get everything you need for optimal health — which makes it all too easy to become run down, worn out, and even chronically ill. IV therapy gives you a whole variety of those essential vitamins and nutrients all at once. 

Can I just take supplements orally instead of IV therapy?

You could opt for oral supplements — but they're not nearly as effective or as fast-acting as IV therapy. Oral supplements have fairly poor bioavailability, with an average absorption rate of just 25-35% for most oral supplements. 

But, IV therapy avoids the whole gastrointestinal system, which is where you lose most of the oral supplements you take. With IV therapy, you get the full effect of the vitamins and nutrients, with nothing wasted in digestion.

An infusion enters your body directly through a vein, then quickly moves throughout your bloodstream to give you immediate effects. In contrast, it takes many hours before your body processes oral supplements enough to even release them into the bloodstream so you can feel some of the effects.
