Thinks you need to know about IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy is used as a tool for replenishing the nutritional and micronutrient status of a patient. It can improve a patient’s health by replenishing minerals and vitamins as it bypasses the digestive system. This allows 100% absorption as minerals and vitamins are directly administered to the blood. Therefore, for many patients, this therapy is more beneficial than taking medication orally.
IV consists of a combination of different minerals and vitamins to treat different diseases. The patient, as a result, receives more nutrients and hydration. The IV vitamin therapy contains the following nutrients:
- Calcium chloride
- B complex
- Ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
- Magnesium chloride
The therapist can personalize the IV therapy according to the needs of the patient. Migraine cocktail is personalized to provide relief from chronic migraines. Similarly, other cocktails are formulated to treat different conditions.
What are the health benefits of IV vitamins?
IV therapy is a therapy with many benefits. When you are taking some medicine or food orally, nutrients in the food and medicine pass through the digestive system. These nutrients are sometimes interrupted. So, not all of the nutrients are absorbed. However, as IV therapy is bypassing the digestive system, it guarantees 100% absorption of the nutrients.
This is the reason why this therapy helps in correcting micronutrient deficiencies. This therapy is pretty helpful in improving the nutritional status of the patient. And hence it provides relief from many symptoms.

How safe the IV nutrient therapy is?
IV nutritional therapy is safe but it must be administered by a licensed and qualified practitioner. The therapist must have completed his certification course. It is important to calculate the osmolarity correctly. The right solution should be administered.
Nutrient push with IV vitamin therapy might make some patients feel warm. It happens because of calcium and/or magnesium. However, it is not intolerable. A patient must eat something before receiving IV vitamin therapy. If you are receiving this therapy with an empty stomach then vitamins B might cause nausea.
Administering magnesium rapidly can cause low blood pressure or hypotension. Don’t worry. This will not happen if you are getting treatment from a certified therapist. When it causes the symptoms of hypotension, the therapist discontinues the treatment until the symptoms are resolved and nutrients are administered slowly after that.
