What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy is the fastest way to deliver vital fluids, electrolytes, medications, and vitamins to the body. Restore optimum hydration and support the immune system. I.V. fluid is absorbed directly into the bloodstream with 100% efficiency compared with approximately 50-60% or less for oral intake.
(These IV Therapies are done in-office only. For a list of products we ship out for delivery, please see our Homekits section.)

Why IV Therapy?
Intravenous administration of nutrients can achieve serum concentrations not obtainable with oral, or even intramuscular (IM), administration. For example, as the oral dose of vitamin C is increased progressively, the serum concentration of ascorbate tends to approach an upper limit, as a result of both saturation of gastrointestinal aborption and a sharp increase in renal clearance of vitamins. When the daily oral intake of vitamin C is increased 12-fold, from 200mg/day to 2500mg/day, the plasma concentration increases by only 25 percent, from 1.2 to 1.5 mg/dL. In contrast, IV administration of 50 g/day of vitamin C resulted in a mean peak plasma level of 80 mg/dL. Similarly, oral supplementation with magnesium results in little or no change in serum magnesium concentrations, whereas IV administration can double or triple the serum levels.
