IV Infusion Therapy Specialist

Nutrition includes an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis. But even if you follow a picture-perfect diet, it’s still tricky to get all of the nutrients your body needs. You can overcome that challenge with IV infusion therapy at Vitality Health Center in Santa Monica, California. This type of nutrition therapy puts all those essential nutrients right into your bloodstream, filling in any nutrient gaps that you have.

IV Infusion Therapy

Why would I want to get my nutrients through an IV?

Getting your body’s essential nutrients intravenously (through an IV) delivers them right into your bloodstream. Your system doesn’t have to wait for anything to be broken down or digested before getting the vitamins and minerals it needs since everything is ready to be absorbed right away. That is particularly beneficial if you’re deficient in any particular nutrient or have a chronic illness.

What can an IV infusion therapy session help with?

Getting an IV infusion (often called a “Myers Cocktail”) can certainly be beneficial simply for maintaining good health. Many men and women schedule regular treatments just to continue feeling their best. But IV infusions do more than maintain good health. They can also help improve issues with:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Hydration
  • Diabetes
  • Colitis and Crohn's disease
  • Heart disease
  • Depression

Which nutrients are in an IV infusion?

You can request specific nutrients be added to your IV infusion, or your specialist at Vitality Health Center might make a recommendation. These nutrients are just some of the possible options:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Alpha-lipoic acid
  • Glutathione
  • Magnesium chloride
  • Calcium gluconate

Are the treatments painful?

Not at all! Most men and women can’t even feel the IV going in. But even if you do feel it, you only feel a small stick for a split second. Once the IV is in place, you can sit back and relax. Bring in your tablet, phone, or favorite book. You actually get a chance to relax for a bit when you have an IV infusion session.

How long do nutrients last after getting an IV infusion?

Nutrients are absorbed right away, increasing any levels that aren’t as high as they should be. Some nutrients stay in your bloodstream until your body’s ready to use them. If anything is left over, they get flushed out with waste.

Because of the IV infusion, your body stores many different nutrients; you should feel a noticeable difference in your energy levels right away. After that, some men and women report feeling better for several weeks. Once the effects wear off and your body has used up all of those nutrients, you can come back in for another treatment. You can gauge how long a treatment lasts for your body after getting your first one.
