Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a method of administering vitamins directly into the bloodstream.

Indications?
Vitamins are naturally found in food and are generally consumed alongside other nutrients in a food matrix. Sometimes they may be available in small quantities which are not sufficient for the body. Our busy lifestyles mean that a lot of us do not eat as well as we should also. A few vague symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, aches and pains have been associated with a deficiency in some vital nutrients.

Vitamins are beneficial for the following reasons:

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced symptoms of stress
  • Improved hydration
  • Regulation of the immune system
  • Improved skin quality
  • Reduction in headaches
  • Improved symptoms of depression
  • Relieves allergies, colds and flus

How is it done?
Intravenous vitamin therapy can be delivered either through injection or infusion.
An intravenous injection involves the use of a small syringe to deliver vitamins into the vein using a very small needle. This procedure takes less than 5 minutes.

With an intravenous infusion, vitamins are added to a fluid such as dextrose saline or normal saline and the vitamin is deliver over a period of 30-45 minutes. Benefits with this method include increased hydration and fluid delivery into the body.
