What is IV Vitamin Therapy?

IV Vitamin Therapy or vitamin infusion is a method of administering intravenous vitamins, minerals anti-oxidants and nutrients directly into the bloodstream through and IV line.  This form of IV infusion is the most efficient delivery method as it eliminates stomach degradation, circumventing gastrointestinal problems, digestive system, and stomach issues associated with high doses of vitamins taken orally. Intravenous vitamins also bypass the liver, which, during metabolism, can destroy many nutrients that would otherwise be ingested orally.

What if I am healthy, can I still use IV Vitamin Therapy?

Absolutely!  IV Vitamin Therapy is beneficial to everyone. It works as a great prevention tool and aids in maintaining a healthy and balanced life.

What is the difference between IV Vitamin Therapy and taking oral vitamins?

When we take vitamins orally, only a small amount of that vitamin is actually absorbed. In fact, due to the acids in our stomach, we actually only consume about 5% of the given vitamin. Merely raising the dosage of vitamins taken orally does not increase the amount our body absorbs due to the absorption capacity of the stomach – it can only take so much. High doses of vitamins can also leave your stomach irritated and sensitive.

How is IV Vitamin Therapy provided?

After your initial consultation, the IV Vitamin Therapy treatment is done at our office or in the comfort of your own home, office or hotel. The nutrients are given intravenously under the doctor’s supervision. The treatment can last from 20 to 60 minutes depending on the amount of nutrients needed. During this time there is minimal discomfort and you can immediately resume your normal activities as soon as the treatment is completed.

Whether you currently have a medical condition or vitamin deficiency that could use specific intravenous vitamin treatment, or if you want to maintain a healthy balance in your physical well being through preventive practices, our Concierge Doctors  at My Concierge MD can help you with the best of care in YOUR environment of choice!
