An Intravenous (IV) vitamin infusion is a technique used to administer hydration and vitamins. Vitamin Infusions contain a large amount of vitamins due to the ability for a higher volume compared to vitamin injections, and the absorption rate of each vitamin is 100%.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTRAMUSCULAR (IM) VITAMIN AND AN INTRAVENOUS (IV) VITAMIN?
A Vitamin Injection is a quick injection that delivers vitamins into the muscle. There is no intravenous access required with vitamin injections and the absorption rate of each vitamin is 80-90%. Intravenous injections contain a much larger amount of vitamins due to the ability for larger volume and the absorption rate of each vitamin is 100%.
I'VE NEVER HAD AN IV. HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
An Intravenous (IV) vitamin infusion is a technique used to administer hydration and vitamins. A small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein. IV infusions consist of 1000 ml of normal saline with a mixture of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants depending on the kind. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream. IV infusions usually take 30-60 minutes to infuse.
HOW LONG DOES THE EFFECT OF IV THERAPY LAST?
After an IV infusion, the vitamins remain in your system for 2-3 weeks.
