IV Nutrient Therapy (IVNT) is a way to introduce nutrients and other therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream to correct deficiencies, enhance immunity, increase energy, and achieve and maintain optimal health. The benefit of IV nutrient therapy over oral nutrition is that the digestive system is bypassed which allows for greater absorption into cells and tissues. It is estimated that only 20-40% of vitamins and minerals taken orally get absorbed. By delivering nutrients directly into the bloodstream, you feel the effects immediately and distribution to the cells that are deficient is more rapid and complete. Additionally, in the setting of chronically impaired digestion and intestinal absorption, a person can become very deficient, and IV nutrient therapy helps “bridge the gap” until the gut can be healed. You don’t have to be chronically ill to benefit from IVNT. Sometimes, you just need a little pick-me-up before or after a business trip or a long week. Other times, you may feel drained of every last bit of energy and you struggle to get through the day. Maybe you feel like you’re coming down with a cold or the flu, or you’ve got an Ironman this weekend (or just finished one!). That’s where IVNT can save the day. Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids given intravenously are much more effectively and quickly absorbed and can restore intracellular micronutrient deficiencies much faster than oral replacement.
