What is Nutritional IV Therapy?
Nutritional IV therapy allows immediate absorption of vitamins, minerals and co-factors via the blood vessels, achieving serum concentrations not attainable through oral administration. Nutritional Intravenous therapy consists of essential vitamins, co-factors and minerals, which are necessary for proper biochemical functioning. Vitamins, minerals and co-factors used in IV therapies include magnesium, calcium, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, zinc, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C. Anti-oxidant effects are the core of Nutrient IV therapy and allow cells to fight against oxidative stress and rapidly jump start metabolism, fight infection and protect against cellular damage.
Many studies and clinical research have shown Nutritional IV’s to be beneficial for:
- Chronic pain
- Liver disease
- Connective tissue support
- Heart disease
- Environmental toxicity
What Else Can Nutritional IV Therapy Do?
Nutritional IV’s are also helpful for maintaining general health as well as supporting athletic performance related to energy production and muscle repair. Most people find relief very soon after starting IV therapy, especially with pain, asthma and migraine headache. Some find long-lasting relief with several treatments, while others may need ongoing treatment to maintain optimal health.
Are There Risks Associated With Nutritional IV Therapy?
The risk of adverse events is very low and treatments are usually tolerated very well by most people. The most common side effects of nutrient IV’s are feelings of warmth and flushing, which is likely due to magnesium and its effects on vessel dilation.
