IV Therapy Q&A
What is nutrition?
Nutrition generally refers to getting the food and nutrients you need to stay healthy, but it’s much more than that. The field of nutrition also involves how your body digests, absorbs, and uses the nutrients you consume. Nutrition encompasses how your diet supports your health or contributes to disease.
Why would I need IV therapy to improve nutrition?
IV therapy is a good option any time you develop a nutrient deficiency. You can get low on nutrients if you consume an unbalanced diet or when your body uses more calories and nutrients than normal.
For example, you need a nutritional boost if you:
- Engage in intense exercise
- Have a chronic health condition
- Live with daily stress or anxiety
- Are sick or injured
- Develop recurrent infections
These activities all place a higher nutrient demand on your body, quickly leading to a deficiency.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
IV therapy delivers nutrients directly into your bloodstream, resulting in three benefits: you get the full dose of nutrients, they’re delivered quickly, and they improve your health.
IV therapy ensures your body gets a precise amount of nutrients and that the full dose is dispersed throughout your body. You seldom, if ever, get the full dose from oral supplements.
There are several reasons why your oral supplements can fail to deliver the expected dose, but the biggest roadblock is that some of the nutrients are lost during digestion. For example, your small intestine only absorbs a small amount of some nutrients at one time. The rest of the dose ends up being excreted in your urine.
The nutrients in IV therapy are quickly carried to all the tissues in your body. By comparison, it takes a longer time for oral supplements to reach your bloodstream.
Your IV therapy contains the nutrients you need to:
- Boost energy
- Reduce stress
- Decrease inflammation
- Support your metabolism
- Improve your gut health
- Fight illness and disease
- Strengthen your immune system
- Improve athletic performance
- Accelerate wound healing
If you’re dehydrated, you can restore fluids with IV therapy.
What nutrients are in IV therapy?
RVA Regenerative Wellness offers many different IV formulas designed to target specific health needs.
One commonly used mixture is the Myers’ cocktail, which contains:
- Vitamin B5
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin C
- B-complex vitamins
This mix of micronutrients supports many body systems, but it especially targets energy metabolism.
