Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are vital for every metabolic process that occurs in the human body. They basically keep our body functioning so that we stay alive. However, we are becoming increasingly nutrient and mineral deficient due to the depletion of the soils, consumption of synthetic and highly processed foods as well as the pervasive nature of genetically modified foods entering our food sources. Stress, illness and pollution further increase demand on these much needed nutrients and as this process of nutrient and mineral deficiency continues, chronic degenerative disease sets in.

A benefit of providing nutrients and minerals intravenously (IV) is that nutrient availability to the cells is immediate since the digestive system is bypassed. This way the absorption of the nutrients does not depend on gut integrity and digestive function. This is an important factor especially for individuals with inflammatory bowel diseases, food sensitivities and poor digestive function. 

Furthermore, via an intravenous line, large doses of nutrients can be delivered which would not be possible if they were taken orally instead. For example, high doses of vitamin C cannot be tolerated orally as it will cause gastrointestinal upset whereas very high doses of vitamin C can be administered intravenously without such an effect. 

Intravenous vitamin therapy is commonly used for:

  • Colds and Flu
  • Low Energy
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Headaches, Migraines
  • Digestive problems where nutrients are not being absorbed properly.
  • Replenishing nutrients after detoxification protocols.
  • Reducing the harmful effects of chronic stress on the body.
