IV therapy delivers medications, nutrients, and/or fluids directly into your bloodstream. IV therapy is superior to oral administration of these compounds because the delivery bypasses your gastrointestinal system. You only absorb about 20% of the valuable elements in nutrients and fluids when taken orally.
When administered by IV, the vitamins, minerals, medications, and other valuable elements are available immediately for use by your body. You relax in a private room with a television and music as you receive your infusions.
