What is IV infusion?
If you follow health trends, you have likely heard of IV infusion therapy. This treatment is much more than a celebrity-driven fad – it works. It involves the intravenous delivery method used in medical settings. The difference is that IV infusion therapy does not involve administering medication but is used to deliver skin and body restoring vitamins and nutrients.
IV infusion delivery method has many advantages over oral supplements:
- During the digestive process, a portion of oral supplements may be absorbed into the bloodstream. By contrast, IV infusion delivers the full dose directly to the bloodstream.
- The exact bioavailability of oral supplements is impossible to predict because it is subject to many variables, including the person’s stomach contents, hydration levels, age, weight, metabolic system, and many more. IV infusion allows exact dosing.
- Retail nutritional supplements may not be what they claim. According to Harvard Health Blog, research studies have repeatedly found discrepancies between potency claims on supplement labels and actual contents, as well as impurities and unlisted ingredients.
