Vitamins and minerals are important building blocks of the body that help it function, through assisting with cellular health, growth and development. Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients that are not
always produced by the body, so we need to obtain them from external sources. This occurs primarily through our diets. We need to consume many of these micronutrients daily to maintain optimal health.
There are several dietary factors (gallbladder removal, bariatric surgery, Crohn’s disease, food allergies, dietary restrictions, specific diets i.e. vegan, vegetarian) that can potentially lead to our bodies not being able to absorb all the nutrients we need by eating alone. Extended cooking times, food processing, excess alcohol, and certain medications can also destroy or reduce the availability of many micronutrients. Therefore, it can be beneficial to receive micronutrients parenterally vs. through the GI tract. IV therapy allows these micronutrients to be placed right where they need to be without relying on gut absorption. They not only start doing their jobs quicker you will feel their benefits faster.
IV vitamin and mineral infusions are also beneficial for the fluid that is used for their delivery system. Recent studies show that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. An active, healthy adult should
be drinking half their body weight in ounces of water per day. By receiving an IV infusion supplemented with vitamins and minerals you can accomplish many health benefits in a matter of 30-60 minutes.
