Intravenous (IV) Therapy
Intravenous therapy is used to directly infuse nutrients into the bloodstream making them immediately available to tissues and cells for absorption. The advantage of IV administration is the ability to achieve very high concentrations of nutrients in the blood. In many cases, these concentrations are necessary for clinical efficacy, and are unachievable with oral administration. IV therapy can be used for a variety of conditions including poor immunity, improved recovery from mononucleosis, migraines and headaches, and enhancing athletic performance.
