IV therapy is one of the latest ways to improve overall health and wellbeing in a short amount of time.

It focuses on giving the body the nutrients it needs in order to be healthy and hydrated and has been known to combat tiredness and fatigue, strengthen hair and nails and give you a boost of much needed energy.

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment that involves giving the body the minerals, vitamins and nutrients it needs to be healthy. A solution of minerals, vitamins and nutrients are injected into the bloodstream using a drip over the course of thirty minutes. The type of solution used is dependent on what vitamins and minerals your body needs and can be tailored specifically to you.

Why have IV therapy?

We consume nutrients on a daily basis through food and drink, however, before those nutrients can begin being absorbed by the body, the food and drink has to travel through the digestive system. If you are somebody that struggles with absorption problems in your digestive system, the full amount of these nutrients cannot be properly absorbed, sometimes causing deficiencies.

Furthermore, regardless of how healthy your diet is, it’s impossible to know how many vitamins, minerals and nutrients you are consuming and whether or not your body is getting the amount it needs. IV therapy enables your body to get 100% of the nutrients it needs in order to be healthy and hydrated in just one treatment.

When injected directly into the bloodstream, the nutrients bypass the digestive system and are completely absorbed by the body.

Each IV therapy treatment is tailored specifically to your needs. Some solutions help the body rid itself of toxins and others provide an energy boost. No matter why you wish to have IV therapy, there is definitely a solution that can help you.

What are the benefits?

There are several different benefits to undergoing IV therapy. One of which is that all of the vitamins are absorbed quickly by the body in comparison to taking vitamin pills or eating. The treatment only takes around thirty minutes to complete and is carried out in a relaxing environment.

IV therapy keeps your body hydrated and most people feel the effects immediately after having treatment. In the long run, IV therapy improves your skin, hair and nails and helps to eliminate toxins within the body. The effects from one treatment last for days and most people experience an increase in energy.
