WHAT IS IV VITAMIN THERAPY?
IV Vitamin Therapy has become the new buzzword as celebrities and professional athletes alike praise its many benefits.
However, IV Vitamin Therapy is not new. One of the most popular IV Vitamin Therapy treatments is the Myers Cocktail which was developed by Dr John Myers over 30 years ago.
IV Vitamin Therapy works by infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. This has many benefits; the valuable nutrients are delivered to the cells much more swiftly; no nutrient goodness is lost as happens when nutrients pass through the digestive system and it is also possible to give much higher doses of these nutrients than is possible through oral consumption.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy is a safe and effective method for delivering natural vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive tract allows for 100% absorption of all nutrients, which makes them immediately available for cellular use.
