Vitamin therapy boosts your body’s levels of micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It directly and quickly delivers these essential substances to your body’s cells.
IV vitamin therapy uses a soft plastic tube (catheter) that goes into a vein in your arm, wrist, or hand. The selected blend of vitamins goes directly into your bloodstream, cutting out your digestive system. That means you get the total nutritional value, whereas you might lose a great deal of the nutrients that go through your gut.
An intramuscular (IM) injection or shot delivers the vitamin therapy blend directly into your buttocks or shoulder muscle. The fluid gradually diffuses into your bloodstream.
Vitamin therapy has many beneficial uses, including:
Vitamin therapy can help treat a variety of symptoms and diseases, including:
