What Are Nutritional IV Therapies?
IV therapy can be more effective than taking supplements orally for correcting intracellular nutrient deficits.
The intravenous methods target nutrients directly to where they are needed: the cells. IVs bypass the digestive system which sometimes blocks the absorption of nutrients.
If you are low on hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes, for example, you do not absorb all the benefits of oral supplements.
IV nutrients are given in therapeutic, pharmacological doses greater than the minimum requirements of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), which are intended only to avoid deficiency states. Because natural nutrients are easy on the body, welcomed, and IV administration has an exceedingly high safety profile.
IVs are more effective and sometimes, just plain easier. For example: The amount of vitamin C that can be taken orally is limited to about 3500 mg. Anymore, you will experience “bowel intolerance” or diarrhea. When we use vitamin C therapeutically to combat flu or chronic disease, we administer typically 25,000 – 50,000 mg. Therapeutic doses administered intravenously bypass the problem of bowel intolerance.
