Intravenous Infusion Therapy
When it comes to infusing your body with the nutrients it needs to survive, your digestive system usually does the trick.
When you eat a sweet potato, for example, your digestive system goes to work extracting the vitamin A, potassium, carbs, and other nutrients for your body to use.
But in some cases, your body needs more than your digestive system can provide. This is where intravenous infusion therapy can help.
What Is Intravenous Infusion Therapy?
Intravenous infusion therapy is a method of delivering essential nutrients to your body directly into your bloodstream. This allows nutrients to arrive at your body’s cells passively, without your body having to expend energy in digesting food.
Each infusion is made up of a customizable cocktail of nutrients designed to treat whatever specific health concern you may have.
Why Can’t I Just Take Oral Supplements?
Oral supplements are useful in many situations, but intravenous infusion therapy does have some advantages.
First off, your digestive system is only able to absorb a certain amount of nutrients. The inefficiencies of your digestive system mean that a lot of the nutrients end up being passed, which is why your urine sometimes changes colour after taking a multivitamin.
By delivering nutrients directly to your bloodstream, intravenous infusion therapy bypasses the inefficiencies of your digestive system and gives you much more of the fuel your body needs.
On top of this, certain digestive disorders and other health situations can impair your body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the first place. Celiac, Crohn’s, cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis, certain congenital defects, prolonged antibiotic use, or certain cancer treatments can cause malabsorption of nutrients.
In cases like this, oral supplementation just doesn’t make as much sense. After all, if your digestive system is having trouble absorbing nutrients, oral supplements will likely have a reduced effect.
This is a difficult situation, because in many situations delivering nutrients to your body can help alleviate the above conditions. But if said condition is preventing your body from getting those nutrients in the first place, you’re stuck in a vicious cycle.
With intravenous infusion therapy, though, the nutrients are delivered right to your bloodstream, which delivers the nutrients your body can use to heal itself, which may help improve the absorption of your digestive system.
Athletes are increasingly turning to intravenous infusion therapy as well, as it has been shown to support muscle function, reduce inflammation, and improve energy and performance. If you’re preparing for an event or beginning a new training regimen, intravenous injection therapy can help.
