PERFORMANCE IV DRIPS
Performance IV Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
Intravenous or IV vitamin therapy is a process of injecting beneficial vitamins and minerals such as magnesium directly into the bloodstream so that they can be used to benefit overall health and the immune system.
The process is more effective at delivering vitamins to the body, compared with eating food or even taking supplements, as it can bypass various biological processes, most notably the process of digestion. It also allows for a higher concentration of nutrients to be administered to the body compared with what could be achieved by eating a meal. But of course, this form of therapy is no substitute for a healthy diet.
IV vitamin therapy benefits include getting high enough concentrations of useful vitamins to a patient in a short space of time. It bypasses the stomach so the body gets complete absorption into the bloodstream rather than losing some along the way.
These nutrients are almost immediately available to be used by the body’s cells and higher doses can be intravenously administered than could safely be managed if taken by other means.
The key effect of IV vitamin therapy is that it boosts the immune system. Added benefits include potentially increasing energy levels and even providing some anti-ageing effects.
The majority of people tolerate IV vitamin therapy well and it’s a procedure that is not invasive.
Each patient is assessed beforehand to make sure they are a suitable candidate for the therapy and doses can be tailored, depending on the condition and the vitamins and minerals required.
The frequency of IV Drip therapy is determined on a patient by patient basis, we take a customized approach to suit your individual needs. For preventative health and wellness, we recommend two IV drips per month to help balance out any vitamin deficiencies.
In some cases, with people who suffer from advanced stages of autoimmune diseases or cancer, continued IV therapy may be necessary for nutritional support.
Some patients get progressively better and after a series of treatments, they no longer require ongoing weekly IV therapy, only monthly treatments to maintain balance. Other patients need regular vitamin injections in order to help alleviate symptoms of their chronic or common medical conditions.
