IV Therapy/Booster Shots

What is IV Vitamin Therapy?

IV TherapyIV Vitamin Therapy is a way to replenish one’s micronutrients and nutritional status to optimal levels. Studies show that IV Vitamins can be an effective way to improve many health conditions and achieve optimal health and wellness.

What is the difference between an IV Vitamin and a Booster?

IV is an abbreviation for “intravenous”. IV Drips, inserted into the vein, consist of 500ml of fluid with a mixture of vitamins and antioxidants. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream.

A Vitamin Booster Shot is a quick 10-second injection that delivers vitamins intramuscularly, directly into the gluteal or deltoid muscle. The booster shot muscle absorption is surprisingly nearly equal to that of IV going directly into the bloodstream

How Does IV Vitamin Therapy & Booster Shots Work?

IV Vitamin Therapy works by administering vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bioavailability of vitamins via IV infusion. Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection so there is no GI metabolism, which also allows for increased absorption. With oral supplements, you get approximately 20% absorption after filtering through your digestive system, which clearly pales in comparison to IV vitamins.

How Long Does the Benefits off IV Vitamin Therapy & Booster Shot Last?

After an IV infusion, the benefits can last up to a few weeks because it is absorbed directly into your bloodstream and bypasses the GI tract. One IM (intramuscular) vitamin booster shot is equivalent to taking one week’s worth of oral vitamin supplements.

How Often Should I Have An IV Therapy?

The frequency of IV therapy is determined on a patient by patient basis, we take a customized approach to suit your individual needs. For preventative health and wellness, we recommend two IV drips per month to help balance out any vitamin deficiencies, but they can be done weekly for optimal health, especially during challenging times or more advanced health issues.
