IV DRIPS + B12 INJECTIONS

THE FACTS: IV drip therapy is an effective way to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and medications to the body because this technique bypasses the digestive system. Supplements are administered directly into the bloodstream, making nutrients available for immediate use.

WHAT IS A IV VITAMIN DRIP?
While the IV vitamin drip might not be new to the wellness scene, its marked increase in demand is a reflection of contemporary attitudes towards health. The abbreviation IV stands for "intravenous", meaning administered through the veins. Operating in a similar way to the IV drips previously reserved for hospital in-patients, in saline solution, a cocktail of nutrients are administered into the bloodstream via a cannula. 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

IV catheters are inserted into a patient’s vein with a needle that is removed once the catheter is placed. IV tubing and fluid/medication is then attached to catheter, which then infuse the fluids into a patient’s vein. An IV pump is commonly used to administer the fluid.

  • Improve immune health.

  • Boost energy levels.

  • Improve symptoms of depression.

  • Improve anxiety.

  • Improve mental clarity and cognitive function.

  • Reduce the symptoms of migraines.

  • Improve symptoms of asthma.

WHAT GOES INTO THE IV?

Some IV drips contain electrolytes and salts, while others contain sugars, vitamins, and antioxidants. Each concoction differs depending on the health and wellness needs of each patient.

  • The most common ingredients that go into IVs include:

  • Saline. This a solution of salt in water and is the most common type of fluid for IVs. A Saline solution is great for dehydration and hangovers since sodium is a type of electrolyte.

  • Vitamins. The benefits of vitamins and antioxidants are essential, as they can give us a boost of energy, strengthen our immune system, plus so much more.

  • Electrolytes. These essential elements and compounds hydrate our bodies, regulate nerve and muscle function, regulate blood pressure, and more. Besides sodium, your body needs potassium, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium, chloride and phosphate — all of which are electrolytes.
