Why IV Infusion Therapy is Superior to Pills and Vitamins

Do you have a cocktail of vitamins and oral supplements that you take on a daily basis? You are not alone. Nearly 4 out of 5 American adults regularly consume vitamins or supplements, according to a recent online survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Osteopathic Association. But how much of these costly supplements are actually being used by your body and what percentage is being wasted? There’s a way to avoid the risk of “expensive urine” and ensure your body is absorbing and using the nutrients you are trying to introduce.

Boutique IV infusion therapy centers are becoming more and more popular. These are clinics that cater to patients of all ages, genders and ethnicities with specialized IV drip services that do everything from helping to alleviate pain to fighting the signs of aging and much more. In one single session, you can receive give high doses vitamins and minerals in a customized formula that is sent directly into your bloodstream.

Understanding Bioavailability

To grasp why IV infusion therapy is more efficient and effective than oral supplements, you must understand bioavailability. Bioavailability refers to the amount of a substance that enters the bloodstream and is “readily available” to be used by the body. When you take vitamins, bioavailability is low. It has to first pass through the digestive system and only a fraction of the nutrients are left for your bloodstream. Plus, the process can take a long time.

IV infusion therapy, on the other hand, is designed to bypass your digestive track and flood your bloodstream with ample amounts of key nutrients your body needs for immediate use. In fact, blood concentration levels of some vitamins and minerals can reach greater levels than would ever be possible with oral delivery.
