IV therapy, also known as an IV vitamin drip, is a superior method of administering vitamins and minerals to the body. It helps to quickly increase vitamin levels as an IV drip delivers high doses of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids right into the blood stream It skips the gastrointestinal track allowing for maximum absorption. This means patients obtain blood concentrations far above what can be achieved with basic supplements.
Intravenous vitamin therapy (IV drip) is an excellent way to support the body with therapeutic levels of nutrients. Have you ever stopped to think how much you are getting from your foods? It's also a great option for those who struggle to consistently take their supplements or suffer from digestive conditions that limit nutrient absorption.
A standard Meyer's Cocktail IV consists of vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, zinc, selenium, vitamin B complex, and sodium bicarbonate. Each has a specific action within the body such as supporting the metabolic pathways, co-factors required in hormone production, and detoxification support.
