IV vitamin therapy has become a popular treatment in recent years, with some major celebrities taking advantage of it to look and feel at their best. But what does it involve? And why should you try it?
Below, we’ll explore how it works, what benefits it offers, and everything else you need to know about IV vitamin therapy.
What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy is a simple, efficient way to deliver high doses of crucial vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream.
A specially formulated mix of ingredients is fed into the body gradually, via an IV drip, while the patient relaxes. The treatment usually takes around one hour, though it may be less depending on the chosen concoction.
What Benefits Does IV Vitamin Therapy Offer?
Increased absorption is the main benefit of administering vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients and substances via IV drip.
By injecting the mix into the bloodstream as a fluid, you can get more out of its positive components than you would if you ate healthy foods or swallowed supplements instead. That’s because the fluid avoids the digestive process, which can hinder absorbency considerably.
For instance, you might start eating more oranges to increase your vitamin C levels, but less of the healthy nutrients would reach your bloodstream after you have digested those oranges. And if you drank fruit juices to get extra vitamins instead, the sugars and acidity could erode your teeth over time or trigger reflux issues.
But that’s not a problem when you try an IV treatment. Just sit back, take it easy, and let the nutrients enter your bloodstream without eating foods or taking supplements you don’t want to.
Each type of IV vitamin therapy offers its own benefits depending on the results it’s designed to achieve. That may be:

What Types of IV Vitamin Therapy are Available?
You can choose from a variety of treatments to suit different conditions, needs, and goals. Astra Medicare offers an extensive range of options, including:
Vitamin C IV Therapy
Vitamin C can help the body to heal faster, boost resistance to different types of viruses (such as the common cold), and increase energy levels.
However, the human body is incapable of producing vitamin C naturally, which is why people rely on vitamin C-rich foods. But large quantities of vitamin C can cause gastrointestinal issues — which is why vitamin C IV therapy is a better option!
This injects the vitamin C directly into the bloodstream and bypasses the digestive process, allowing the body to absorb more of it in a safer way. It can boost the immune system, encourage healthier collagen production, fight harmful free radicals, and contribute to more effective healing.
IV Vitamin Cocktails
You can choose from a wide range of IV cocktails containing various vitamins, minerals, and other healthy ingredients.
For example, the Pure Energy option is packed with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to boost your energy levels. And the Replenish mix contains multiple vitamins and minerals to replenish cells, restore energy, metabolic balance, and vitality.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant formed in the liver and necessary for various essential processes, including repairing tissue and creating proteins. But another function is inhibiting the production of melanin, the substance responsible for skin pigmentation.
As a result, glutathione IV therapy can be an effective way to brighten skin and promote a more even skin tone. People affected by hyperpigmentation, which leaves dark patches developing across the skin, may benefit from glutathione IV therapy. It can also improve the appearance of blemishes, freckles, and liver spots.
The M.I.C. Infusion IV treatment is formulated to reduce fatty tissue and boost the metabolism. It contains three lipotropic compounds: Methionine, Inositol, and Choline.
Clinical studies show that the body may burn fat more quickly and efficiently after M.I.C. injections, liver function can become healthier, and cholesterol levels may drop.
Who are the Best Candidates for IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy can benefit people of diverse age groups and lifestyles. Those who can’t eat the amount of food their body requires, for example, may introduce more essential nutrients into their system directly. Similarly, people with a condition that affects their ability to absorb nutrients in a healthy way can benefit from IV vitamin therapy.
But people can also take advantage of IV therapies to replenish their bodies after intense exercise, help ease hangovers after drinking alcohol, and to help fight off colds or flu.
It’s vital that you have a comprehensive consultation before you try any vitamin IV therapy for the first time. A specialist will discuss your health, your goals, and more to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
