You’ve heard all about hangover IVs to replenish the body after a night of partying, but how can the treatment help non-drinkers?
IV nutrient therapy or intravenous nutrient therapy has traditionally been used in hospitals to help patients rehydrate or recover from life-threatening nutrient deficiencies.
Commonly seen ingredients in an IV vitamin drip are vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium.
IV therapy entails delivering vital fluids in your body directly through the veins, by- passing the gastrointestinal system. Because IV treatment is administered directly into the veins, the results may be faster than those of oral or other traditional medicines. Physicians believe IV nutrient therapy can be safe, effective and restorative, and can be customized to suit the unique needs of each patient individually.

What’s happening to my body during an IV therapy session?
During an IV vitamin drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Supplements with these same compounds that are taken by mouth have to be broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, allowing your body to absorb only about 50 percent. If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at a much higher percentage and the body gets to utilize 90 percent of what you’re putting into it.
