        What Is IV Vitamin Therapy?

        IV vitamin therapy is a treatment that administers vitamins, minerals, and amino acids intravenously via an IV bag. It allows for the vitamins to bypass the digestion process and go straight into the patient's bloodstream. This allows for quicker absorption and a higher concentration of the substances. In recent years, it has been made popular by elite athletes and celebrities.

        IV vitamin therapy can help a wide array of conditions and has many benefits. People use the treatment for various reasons, including dehydration, migraines, sports performance and recovery, detoxification, jet-lag, immune boost, anti-aging, allergies, fatigue, anxiety, hangover, and more. Practitioners will often combine ingredients into IV mixes and incorporate "pushes" of amino acids to optimize treatments for certain issues or enhance the patient's benefits.

        Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy

        Patients report a plethora of positive benefits from IV vitamin therapy. A study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that patients treated with IV nutrient therapy experienced a reduction in their fibromyalgia symptoms. Additionally, a review of studies on high-dose vitamin C found that patients who received the treatment had a better quality of life and fewer side effects than those who did not receive the treatment.

        Those who receive IV vitamin therapy report additional benefits, including:

        Improved athletic performance

        Exercise can be demanding on the body and leave it needing vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids. Additionally, training requires a lot from the body. IV vitamin therapy can help replenish the body to provide hydration, improve performance, reduce recovery time, and help build muscle.

        Improved physical appearance

        IV vitamin therapy administers vitamins and antioxidants, which can enhance the health of one's hair, skin, and nails. They do these things by replenishing tissues and detoxing the body of free radicals that can speed up aging. Some of those who receive IV vitamin therapy report improved blemish issues, brightened skin, reduced inflammation, and reduced wrinkles.

        Enhanced wellness

        Vitamin IV therapy can improve physical and mental health, as well as relieve symptoms of some conditions. This can lead to an improvement in the patient's wellbeing. Some report improved immune health, improved depression and anxiety symptoms, enhanced mental clarity, more energy, accelerated wound healing, improved muscle growth and function, and more.

        Vitamin IV Therapy and Glutathione

        Glutathione is a substance found in the liver but also found in vegetables, fruit, and meats. It is a powerful antioxidant that is made from various amino acids and has a lot of critical functions, applications, and benefits. It supports immune function, breaks down free radicals, assists in fat processing, helps certain enzymes function, forms sperm cells, and more. Some health care practitioners also administer it to help treat glaucoma, aging, alcoholism, Alzheimer's disease, lung diseases, and some side effects of chemotherapy.

        Many incorporate glutathione into their IV vitamin therapy as a "boost" or "push" to expand the benefits of their treatment. Patients who augment their treatment with the antioxidant can experience several benefits. These benefits may include a reduction in oxidative stress, immune support, detoxification, increased energy, enhanced brain health, improved lung health, better heart health, elevated athletic performance, and decreased inflammation.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        What is IV vitamin therapy?

        IV vitamin therapy is a treatment where patients receive vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids from an IV. This allows for the substances to bypass the digestive system and go directly into the bloodstream. This therapy aims to mitigate health issues and provide patients with an overall improvement in health and wellbeing.

        Are there side effects from IV vitamin therapy?

        Patients usually do not experience significant side effects. People often experience a cooling of the arm and a change in taste. These are both normal, temporary symptoms.

        What do physicians administer in IV vitamin therapy?

        This type of treatment usually features vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. Sometimes, patients choose to add "boosts" or "pushes" of glutathione or NAD. The types of vitamins and other nutrients included usually depend on several factors, but we also take patient needs and preferences into consideration.

        How soon will I feel the effects of IV vitamin therapy?

        Each person is different. Some people feel the effects of the treatment the same day, some feel them in a more delayed manner, and some continue to feel them for multiple days afterword. A variety of factors play into how the patient feels from the therapy, although it is usually an improvement from before the treatment.

        Is taking vitamins orally as effective as taking them intravenously?

        In short, no. While it is good to take essential vitamins orally to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle, they are not absorbed as quickly or effectively as they are with an IV vitamin treatment. This is because they bypass the digestive system and go straight into the bloodstream.
