IV therapy is a treatment whereby fluids containing nutrients and vitamins are delivered directly into your bloodstream through your vein. The aim of IV therapy is to allow immediate absorption and use of nutrients and vitamins. Nutrients and vitamins can be taken intravenously through drips and injections.
The body is able to absorb nutrients much faster than when taken orally. This is because IV Therapy bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into your bloodstream, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate. The absorption rate, when taken orally, is only about 20-50%.
According to a PwC survey, about one-third of UK workers experience anxiety, depression or stress. IV therapy can help boost energy levels and strengthen the immune system. Athletes and Hollywood celebrities have used IV therapy for centuries to boost their energy levels and strengthen their immune systems.
What is the purpose of IV therapy?
Intravenous nutrients were originally used mainly in hospitals to improve the condition of patients that were dehydrated, nutrient-deficient, or patients that are unable to take medications orally.
These days, even healthy people now take IV nutrients and vitamins to boost their energy levels and enhance their overall wellness.
Most people have weak immune systems due to different factors. Stress, lack of important nutrients, and the aging effect can weaken the immune system. IV fluid helps to boost their immune systems and enhance their overall wellness.
