How it works
It is the quickest way to get vital nutrients into you body
With traditional vitamin tablets, the nutrients will first be processed within the digestive tract before they are able to enter the blood stream. With IV vitamin infusion, the digestive tract is essentially removed from the equation. Vitamins and minerals that are delivered intravenously, directly into the blood stream, are able to be absorbed by the body immediately. Your body cells will be able to absorb everything they need to function correctly. Any excess nutrients will be filtered out by the liver and kidneys and expelled from the body.
Aids in nutrient intake when the gastrointestinal tract pathway fails
It is commonly known that IV therapy is one the best ways to hydrate your body when you are dehydrated.
IV therapy can also aid in nutrient intake for conditions that affect the digestive tract. Such conditions as ulcerative colitis, cystic fibrosis, colon cancer and Chron's disease can all prevent the digestive tract from working as it should.

Depending on the IV therapy given, it can have a significant effect on your cardiovascular health. Amino acids such as arginine ornithine help to relax blood vessels. This intern helps to lower blood pressure. Magnesium and calcium can also help in regulating the contraction and dilation of blood vessels.
