If you don’t mind a little pinch, vitamin shots and IV drips are a great way to boost your body’s natural health.
Why would you do this? The short answer is that vitamin injections can improve your body’s natural healing, boost immune response, and promote your energy level and overall well-being.
IV therapy can be beneficial for many different people for different reasons. Two of the main benefits for anyone who wants to try IV therapy include:
Ease and convenience: If you are feeling under the weather, you probably don’t want to head to the hospital or your doctor’s office unless necessary. For many common symptoms, IV therapy is an easy and convenient option. The insertion of the IV is relatively painless, just a small pinch. After it is inserted, you should feel minimal discomfort. The IV drip will do its job while you watch TV, read or work on your device.
Health and wellness: For the most part, IV therapy is used to promote health and wellness. The infusion of fluids, vitamins and minerals can help support a healthy immune system, promote healthy skin and keep you hydrated. The right balance of vitamins and minerals in the body can also help improve your energy levels.
Absorption: As people age, they often face a problem of low stomach acid. As the pH of their stomach goes above a three, they start to have digestive problems, they experience increased acid reflux, and it becomes difficult for them to break down and utilize certain vitamins from their food. While it is possible to correct this problem of the low acid content of their stomach, they will experience a period of poor vitamin absorption until the pH issues with their stomach are resolved. In the meantime, vitamin injections can help to keep their body on top of getting critical vitamins until they get their stomach back to functioning like it should. Since vitamin injections bypass the digestive system, placing nutrients right into the bloodstream, this means that even people with digestive issues will be getting more nutrients. Additionally, there is no risk of the digestive system removing the vitamins being injected as waste, as often happens with the body’s normal digestive process. With the vitamins being introduced directly into the bloodstream, the cells of the body can gain access to sufficient amounts of key vitamins they may not normally have access to on a regular basis.
IV therapy is a straightforward procedure. Regardless of the type of IV therapy you are receiving, you can expect a uniform process.
Generally, you will be seated somewhere comfortable for the duration of the therapy. The nurse will disinfect the injection site and place a needle directly in a vein. The IV will typically be placed in the arm, but it is possible to be placed elsewhere. The arm is a common insertion point primarily because it is easily accessible. Plus, the arm is a low-risk entry point compared to others like the neck or thigh, and the proximity to the heart helps medication can arrive faster.
Once the IV is inserted, a manual or electronic pump will deliver the fluid into an IV bag. The nurse will check the pump to ensure the rate of delivery is correct. The fluid drips from the bag through the catheter and enters your body. Once inside your body, the fluid from the IV bag enters the bloodstream.
During IV therapy, you need to keep still, so you do not disturb or dislodge the catheter. Aside from that, you can read, watch television, read a book or browse on your phone during the process.
IV therapy drips amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fluids at a controlled rate. Once you are connected to the IV, which is usually a quick and simple process, the duration of the therapy will depend on why you are undergoing IV therapy. The average IV treatment for us lasts 45 minutes to an hour.
How quickly will you feel the effects of the IV drip? The answer depends on why you are undergoing IV therapy. In some cases, you may feel the effects almost immediately. In other cases, it may take more time. The effects can last for up to a few days after completing the procedure, depending on a number of different factors like the type of IV package, your hydration level and your body’s natural metabolic rate.
The fluids inside an IV bag depend on the type of therapy you are undergoing. Intravenous solutions can contain saline, vitamins, minerals and medication. Some common components of IV bags include:
Saline: Saline solution is usually the base ingredient of an IV bag. Saline, made up of water and sodium chloride, serves as a delivery system for the other components of your IV therapy. Saline also helps hydrate the body.
Dextrose: Dextrose is a type of sugar. Unlike some of your favorite sweet desserts, this kind of sugar is good for you. In IV therapy, Dextrose helps normalize low levels of blood sugar. Because it a sugar, your body can also convert dextrose into energy.
Lactated Ringer’s: If you are a fan of medical dramas, you have almost certainly heard the term “Lactated Ringer’s.” This IV solution contains water, calcium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium chloride and sodium lactate. Like saline solution, Lactated Ringer’s can deliver other ingredients. It is also commonly used during surgery and to treat dehydration.
Vitamin B: Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, B-9 and B-12 are collectively known as vitamin B complex. Vitamin B complex directly contributes to important bodily functions, like your metabolism and nerve function. Vitamin B complex is often delivered via IV therapy for patients who have trouble naturally absorbing vitamins.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is important for a healthy immune system function. If you are sick or feel like you are becoming sick, vitamin C can be a beneficial ingredient in your IV therapy. Vitamin C sustains the immune system’s pathogen response, helping it fight diseases and prevent them from onsetting.
Calcium: Your IV therapy may include calcium, which is a mineral that we need to build strong bones and teeth. We consume calcium in our diet through foods like dairy and green, leafy vegetables. Intravenous calcium can supplement a low-calcium diet or treat certain conditions like acute hypocalcemia and hypoparathyroidism.
Magnesium: Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in healthy metabolic function. It has numerous benefits, including reducing inflammation, combating leg cramps in pregnant women and even helping to prevent migraines.
Antioxidants: Antioxidants help protect your body’s cells from a number of different diseases. Your IV therapy may include different types of antioxidants, such as glutathione, or vitamins A, C or E.
