IV Therapy: Nutrition in Minutes

Updated: Jan 9, 2023

Intravenous nutrient therapy is a safe, effective method of supplying the body with natural vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly through the bloodstream. Nutrient infusions are similar to those found at your local hospital and administered using a small IV injection that allows for nutrients to be easily absorbed into the bloodstream at the cellular level.

Intravenous nutrient therapy has been shown to enhance energy levels, improve overall moods and help prevent future health conditions caused by stress, poor nutrition and dehydration.

IV Therapy: An alternative to taking dozens of supplements to obtain optimal nutrition

In the U.S., malnutrition is very common. Either we eat too much or too little of something, our bodies aren't meeting nutrition goals as quick as we need them too. Malnutrition can lead to short and long term conditions. Some of these may include: weight fluctuations, fatigue, and vitamin deficiency. With IV Therapy, patients are able to more easily meet their nutrition goals without the hassle of completely altering their lifestyle.


Vitamin IV Therapy is fast, convenient and easy to use. There are several instances where IV Therapy might be especially beneficial. If you feel a cold coming on, a fresh burst of vitamins will help it disappear quickly. It also helps to take after a long vacation, to help you give you the energy you need to be more productive at work. If you’re training for an athletic event, IV therapy can help improve your stamina and help you recover quicker. If you’re feeling fatigued, have low energy, or have some vitamin deficiency, Vitamin IV therapy can really help. You can also try it just because you feel like trying it.

The practice is frequently misunderstood and has developed myths that surround it.
