What is IV Therapy? The purpose of IV nutrient therapy is to provide supplemental vitamins and micronutrients into your body to improve the body's state of health and overall well-being. IV stands for intravenous, meaning that the vitamins and micronutrients are administered into the body through the veins.
When Should You Receive an IV Nutrient Infusion? There are no definite answers regarding who should take vitamin C or benefit from intravenous vitamin infusion therapy. A person may start with an IV vitamin therapy if their healthcare provider recommends it. Other considerations that may warrant the need for IV vitamin therapy are the following:
Individuals suffering or recovering from illnesses; IV vitamins may help boost the immune system and speed up recovery.
Individuals who feel run down and have chronic low energy.
Individuals with mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Athletes before and after major sporting activities.
For the most part, anyone can receive an IV vitamin infusion. The components are generally well-tolerated, and the risks of adverse effects, though present, are mild.
Possible Side Effects: Intravenous vitamin infusions are generally safe, with minimal side effects. When they do occur, side effects may be due to poor antiseptic conditions during the administration of the infusion. In addition, some side effects may occur as a result of hypersensitivity reactions to one or more of the ingredients in an infusion. For example, magnesium in an infusion bag may cause a flushing sensation around the head, neck, and chest areas. For this reason, those receiving an infusion for the first time should have it titrated slowly and should be monitored closely for any side effects. If any side effects are detected, the infusion should be immediately discontinued.
