Is Vitamin Therapy Necessary?

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 IV?

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.
Absorption

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.

Oral Route

When you take a vitamin by mouth, your body has to do a lot of work to move that vitamin into the blood stream.

  • Tablets and capsules must survive the harsh acid environment in the stomach. But be available in the small intestine.
  • Vitamins are dependent on crossing the cells forming the intestinal lining to be absorbed into blood stream.
  • Absorption is dependent on an intact intestinal lining which can be easily damaged by
    • Stress
    • Medications
    • Infections
    • Inflammation
    • Alcohol
  • Reliant on specific vitamin transporters which are sensitive to conditions (for example: alcohol, coffee) and are ineffective as several vitamins complete to use the same transporter.
  • Less expensive but less efficient.

IV Route

  • Bypass absorption making them immediately 100% bioavailable.
  • Deliver high concentrations or nourishing vitamins unattainable orally.
  • Can have an immediate effect on health.
  • More expensive but typically worth it for those who have symptoms of vitamin deficiencies including fatigue, headaches, weight gain, frequent infection, blemish skin, brittle hair and nails.
