Vitamin IV therapy delivers vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This offers 100 percent delivery of benefits directly to the target body systems.
This med spa therapy is not meant to act as a substitute for oral intake of supplements. However, it acts as a supplement or alternative solution to rapidly replenish vital nutrients and rehydrate the body to restore its peak balance.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Vitamin IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Advantages of Vitamin IV therapy
Vitamin IV therapy is similar to IV hydration, and it directly delivers 100 percent of vitamins and supplements into the body. Upon ingestion, vitamins and nutrients need to go through the absorption barrier of the digestive system.
A person would need to intake a larger amount of vitamins and nutrients more frequently to attain a concentration that is similar to IV or intramuscular supplementation.
The intake of a large number of vitamins orally can upset the stomach. In some cases, the absorption of these nutrients can be severely limited causing deficiencies that can disrupt the delicate balance of the body.
Effects of Vitamin IV Therapy
Every person has a different body. In general, the more deficient and unbalanced a person’s system is, the greater and more rapid effect they will feel.
Just because an individual may not feel an instant difference, it does not mean that the therapy is not effective. Vitamin IV therapy is the clinical gold standard in eliminating unwanted toxins from the body and helping it attain balance.
Sustainability of Effects
The sustainability of the effects will again differ depending on the individual and their health status. While the noticeable effects usually last for two to four days, the underlying medical benefits sustain for much longer than that.
Candidates for Vitamin IV therapy
Vitamin IV therapy is being used for various health concerns. Patients with the following conditions have responded well to these treatments:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Muscle spasms
- Sinus and respiratory tract infections
Apart from the above, various other disease states, including hyperthyroidism and angina, have shown promising outcomes with Vitamin IV therapy. In addition, many people also use vitamin infusion therapy for rapid rehydration after an intense sporting event (such as running a marathon, enhanced skin clarity, and to cure a hangover.
Good candidates for vitamin infusion therapy include people who are not able to eat sufficient amounts of food, or who have a condition that interferes with the absorption of nutrients.
The reasons for which Vitamin IV therapy is most sought-after include stress relief, ridding the body of toxins, balancing hormones, boosting immunity, and making the skin healthier.
While there are many positive anecdotal claims of revitalization and relief, there is no conclusive evidence supporting these claims. Water-soluble vitamins are used in the IV drips. Therefore, the body discards any excess vitamins through the kidney into the urine after using what it needs.
Vitamins and Mineral in Vitamin IV Therapy
There are no restrictions on the type of vitamins that can be used in this therapy. However, the ideal vitamins for this treatment are those that are natural to an individual’s body and can be measured with levels to ensure that the IV infusion is given at an appropriate dose.
