IV infusion therapy is a way to deliver high concentrations of vitamins and minerals straight into your bloodstream through an arm vein. This allows very fast absorption — far faster than getting vitamins and minerals through oral supplements.
Another noteworthy aspect of IV infusion therapy is the absorption rate. You absorb only a fraction of the nutrients in capsules or pills you take — as little as 10-20%, based on solubility and other factors.
It’s not that different with the food you eat: You can absorb anywhere from 10-90% of nutrients in your food, but you never get the full value of the nutrients into your bloodstream.
In both cases, the low absorption rate happens because of the digestive process. When you take any food or supplement by mouth, the digestive process breaks down the food or supplement to ensure your body can absorb its nutrients. However, many of those nutrients get lost in the process.
With IV infusion therapy, you get the nutrients directly into your blood through a catheter (thin tube). This means it takes only a short time (usually 45-60 minutes) to get your nutrients and be on your way. Thanks to this rapid delivery, you may experience positive effects right away.
With so many different vitamins and minerals, there are many options in IV therapy. The most popular option among them is a blend of several highly beneficial nutrients. The Myers’ cocktail (IV combination) brings together various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including:
This unique combination of nutrients was formulated by John Myers, MD, in the 1950s, and it has grown steadily more popular over the decades that followed.
IV infusion therapy offers a wide range of benefits for general health and wellness, including:
In addition, information published by the National Library of Medicine indicates that IV infusion therapy offers fast help for recovery from hangovers, migraines, acute asthma attacks, muscle spasms, sinusitis, and other illnesses.
