In today’s fast-paced world, we’re aware of our health and the role the immune system plays in maintaining it now more than ever. If you’ve visited the health food aisle of your local grocery store, you’ve probably seen the ever-growing selection of vitamins and supplements available.

Being proactive about your health is the best way to prepare your defenses going into the cold and flu season. Fortunately, there’s a way to support your health from the inside out.

IV Vitamin Therapy

IV vitamin therapy offers the benefits gained through supplementation of vitamins and antioxidants to your body with immediate results, and the treatment is rapidly growing in popularity. Developed in the 1970s by Baltimore physician Dr.John Myers, IV vitamin drips offer an innovative, safe, and extremely efficient way to obtain the benefits associated with supplementation of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. This therapy is also used in the treatment protocol for a number of medical conditions.

Why Can’t I Just Take A Pill?

IV vitamin therapy differs from oral supplementation because it is able to deliver nutrients on a cellular level, this means that the body is restored to a state of balance and nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream while remaining undiluted by the digestive tract. In contrast, oral supplementation of the essential vitamins we are deficient in yields an absorption rate of only 40 percent, an extremely low number that is not able to address a deficiency in some patients.

An added advantage of IV vitamin therapy is seen in the higher dosages possible using this method. Through oral supplementation, the body cannot process the high doses of vitamins and minerals that can be readily absorbed through IV therapy.
