Vitamin Therapy Q&A

What is vitamin therapy?

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.

Why might I need vitamin therapy?

Vitamin therapy has many beneficial uses, including:

Treating illnesses

Vitamin therapy can help treat a variety of symptoms and diseases, including:

  • Mental or physical fatigue
  • Stress
  • Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Migraines
  • Acne
  • Dehydration, nausea, and other hangover symptoms
  • Painful periods and premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Vitamin therapy can also benefit people with autoimmune conditions such as lupus, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), multiple sclerosis (MS), and rheumatoid arthritis.

Aesthetic issues

If you have problems like a dull complexion, fine lines and wrinkles, thinning or limp hair, or brittle nails, vitamin therapy can help revitalize your appearance. You could benefit from youthful, glowing skin, shiny, lustrous hair, and strong nails.

Immunity support

If you’re planning to travel or go anywhere there’s likely to be a large group of people, vitamin therapy supports enhanced immune system function. You can also benefit from an immune system boost if you’re run down or recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery.

Vitamin therapy can even help if you have any mental or physical challenges coming up, like exams, interviews, moving home, or a sports competition.
