IV Therapy vs. Oral Supplements: Which is Better?

iv therapy

It’s important to get in your daily doses of vitamins and minerals. You can get some of your nutrients from eating fruits, vegetables, and other foods. But to meet some recommended doses, you would have to eat large quantities of certain foods, which may not be viable. That’s when nutritional supplementation comes into the picture.  You can get nutrients from oral supplements, but have you considered using IV (intravenous) therapy, tailored just for you? We’re all genetically different, so why would you want to take one-size-fits-all, pre-packaged oral supplements, when you can get customized, intravenous nutritional therapy?

What is IV Therapy?

IV or intravenous therapy is a therapy that injects or infuses liquid substances straight into the vein.  You’re probably familiar with the way hospitals and other medical facilities have used IV therapy to treat various conditions, for years now. They use it for patients who are either physically unable to ingest food or oral medications, or those medications weren’t effective.  But instead of medicine, our fusion IV treatments deliver a powerful dose of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other vital nutrients, directly into the bloodstream. In some cases, you will feel the results almost instantly.

Absorption Issues for Oral Supplements

IV Therapy vs. Oral Supplements: Which is Better?

There are some strong arguments when discussing IV vs pills. Let’s begin with the subject of absorption. Did you know that some oral supplements pass right through the body, preventing you from getting the benefits? And you may have also heard about how certain vitamins, when taken together will interfere with absorption. You don’t have to worry about absorption issues with our treatments. They deliver quick and safe 100 percent absorption at high doses that would never be possible through oral supplements. This especially comes in handy, if you’re looking for a quick hangover cure, or if you’re fighting a cold, or even suffering from jetlag.  Our Immunity & Wellness IV Treatment is perfect for those conditions, and more.

Oral Supplements’ Hidden Ingredients

Here’s something else to keep in mind when deciding between oral supplements IV therapy. By law, supplement companies are required to list the ingredients in their products. For example, you can clearly see the vitamins and minerals, because they’re listed – Vitamin C, A, D, Magnesium, along with the amount. But what you might not see listed is the excipients or inactive ingredients – the coloring agents, preservatives, binders, and fillers. Some oral supplements contain high levels of caffeine, while others contain alcohol, both of which may be problematic for some people, causing an adverse effect.
