IV Vitamin Therapy is named after Dr. John Myer who reported using a 10-mL syringe to perform a slow vitamin push of various nutrients into the vein. Many celebrities advocate the benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy and the good news is that it is not exclusive to Hollywood’s rich and famous. This affordable treatment is designed to revitalize the body and mind. We at The Skin and Body Refinery would like to take the opportunity to elaborate briefly on the treatment and the benefits.

Nutritional IV Therapy

The IV nutrient treatment consists of a variety of vitamins and minerals in combination to treat specific diseases. Today, the treatment is done with an IV bag instead of a syringe. People receive a lot more than hydration and nutrients with this treatment. A few common nutrients included in a IV vitamin therapy treatment include:
– Calcium Chloride
– Magnesium Chloride
– Vitamin C, or Ascorbic Acid
– B Complex

IV Therapy Has Better Absorption

These treatments can be customized according to the persons needs as well. With the many benefits, more people are taking advantage of the treatment. Taking vitamins and getting the nutrients through food is often not enough, after the body processes consumed vitamin capsules and foods, a lot of the nutrients are lost. With the IV vitamin treatment, the digestive process is bypassed, allowing the body to absorb 100% of the nutrients. Vitamin IV therapy can correct micronutrient deficiencies for this reason alone. Many find relief of the many symptoms that improve the overall nutritional status.

The fact is, is that food today doesn’t have the same nutrient density that it once did, no matter how clean you try to eat. To start receiving the missing nutrients, IV nutrition therapy can be the optimal solution. Keep in mind that for nutrients to reach the blood, food has to be digested and absorbed efficiently and therefore, your gut health has to be in optimal condition as well.
