Sometimes, our bodies can feel like they aren’t getting the nutrients and vitamins that are necessary to stay fit, healthy, and at peak performance. Even when you have a good idea about what your diet might be missing, the problem can’t always be solved by changing your diet and lifestyle. This is why IV therapy can be extremely helpful when your body needs an extra boost.
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, is a treatment that delivers vitamins, nutrients, and other important fluids to the body directly through the veins. With the aid of an injection by syringe or infusion, this is the quickest method of delivering beneficial products directly to the bloodstream for immediate effect.
What Can IV Therapy Do?
IV treatment can address a range of different issues that often relate to a lack of nutrients and vitamins in the body, such as Vitamin C or Vitamin D. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to negative side effects, such as weakness, fatigue, migraines, headaches, muscle spasms, lightheadedness, and even memory loss. It can also make someone more susceptible to illness since the body has less support in helping to fight off disease and infection.
By supplementing any possible deficiencies, IV therapy can help balance and stabilize the body again. Specific benefits from an IV treatment or therapy program include promoting a healthy, stable immune system, helping build healthy skin, hair, and nails, and aiding with conditions like chronic dehydration.
Types of IV Therapy
If you’re wondering how IV therapy works, it’s simply a direct way to give your body specific vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to support your body systems, such as to support a healthy immune system. For example, IV vitamin treatment provides a custom blend of vitamins like B12 complexes, Vitamin C, or Vitamin K, which is important for preventing excessive bleeding.
Other types of IV treatments include growth factors and electrolytes to help boost performance whether before or after exertion. Minerals like iron can help your red blood cells uptake and deliver oxygen to depleted areas throughout your body.
Whether you’re suffering from a depletion of energy or want a boost of energy for higher performance, IV therapy might be able to help.
Who Is a Good Candidate for IV Therapy?
Those who believe that they have a possible nutritional deficiency may be a good candidate for IV therapy. Additionally, if you suffer from chronic fatigue or neurodegenerative problems, IV infusions may be beneficial. Also, anyone who has trouble consuming enough calories throughout the day, has limiting diet restrictions, or suffers from certain medical conditions that impact the way the body takes in and uses nutrients should look into this type of treatment.
