IV THERAPY DELIVERS VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS DIRECTLY INTO THE BLOOD STREAM, BUT IS IT ACTUALLY BETTER THAN ORAL SUPPLEMENTS? MANY EXPERTS SAY “YES!”
Most people associate IVs with illness. When you are in the hospital you might find yourself hooked up to an IV so your body maintains proper fluid levels; and patients with infections or other medical conditions receive medications intravenously so the drugs can more efficiently act on the problem.
IV therapy in East Brunswick is a bit different from the other types of intravenous treatments you might be familiar with. Also called IV vitamin therapy, this is a form of preventative treatment that is designed to enhance wellness—not just fight off illness. In East Brunswick, IV therapy features a variety of supplement cocktails so you can obtain the nutrients that are most crucial to your health.
IV Therapy over Oral Supplements
We’ve all been told to eat our vegetables for the sake of all the nutrients they deliver to our bodies. But just eating fruits and veggies sometimes isn’t enough to get all the nutrients your body may need. When you eat healthy foods you are only obtaining a fraction of the nutrients those foods offer. Unfortunately, we too often eat foods that aren’t packing a huge nutritional punch, so the amount of nutrients our bodies obtain becomes even smaller.
By bypassing the digestive tract and delivering nutrients directly into the bloodstream, IV therapy offers a concentrated amount of nutrients that can boost the immune system, help you better manage stress and even fight chronic illness.
Here are a few other benefits of IV therapy:
- Fewer Side Effects: If you were to orally take the amount of vitamin C that is injected to your bloodstream during IV therapy you would experience severe digestive discomfort. Intestinal problems like cramping, diarrhea and nausea can be avoided with IV therapy.
- Availability of Higher Doses: When you consume vitamins orally not all of the nutrients are absorbed by the body, and taking larger doses to compensate is unsafe. IV therapy provides doses of nutrients that would be difficult to obtain orally.
- Instant Results: IV therapy is a “direct deposit” of nutrients into the bloodstream. There is no wait time before the nutrients start benefitting your health. Once they enter the bloodstream you will begin benefitting from the injections.
