The traditional view is that if we eat a balanced diet we should receive all the vitamins and minerals we need. However as our food supply becomes more dissolved of nutrition the need for supplementation increases. The situation is so bad that supplements are now near the top of the US food pyramid.
Why should you go to the trouble and expense of doing IV nutrient therapy when you can buy over-the-counter oral supplements and take them in the comfort of your home?
I know it seems counter-intuitive to go into a clinic for IV therapy when supplements seem to be everywhere these days. But there are actually many sounds scientific reasons to do so.
Much of it comes down to one simple concept.
An IV infusion delivers 100% of each vitamin into your blood stream. Absorption by the gut is completely bypassed. The dose of an IV infusion also is far greater than the gut could ever absorb.
When you take a vitamin by mouth, your body has to do a lot of work to move that vitamin into the blood stream.
