Intravenous Therapies

Every day, there are thousands of biochemical processes happening within our bodies that require vitamins and minerals for their proper function. These nutrients can be obtained from many sources, including the foods we eat and select nutritional supplements, such as multivitamins or a B-complex.

However, we can only absorb a certain amount from these sources. Infusing these substances directly into the blood circulation allows us to provide a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than would be possible by taking supplements. This allows for rapid delivery of these nutrients directly to our cells and tissues by bypassing the gastrointestinal tract.

Other benefits include the ability to provide nutrients and medicines that would otherwise be difficult to due to their poor absorption, or any barriers to normal absorption, such as a digestive illness.

What other substances can we use? In addition to vitamins and minerals, botanical extracts and antioxidant compounds can also be infused if required.
