In this day and age, when our food is processed or so lacking in vitamins and people are on fad diets or faced with digestive issues and gut bacteria issues, IV therapy may be a real way to get the vitamins that you need to feel good or give you that edge.
The Vitamins and nutrients In the IVs are involved in almost all processes in our body.
What is IV vitamin therapy? IV stands for intravenous. A small plastic tube is inserted into the vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tubing is advanced into the vein.
IV drips usually take about 45 – 60 min to infuse.
Some people also chose to get a vitamin shot along with their IV Therapy. An IM shot is a quick injection into the gluteal (buttock)or deltoid(shoulder) muscle.
IV Vitamin therapy works by administration of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream, by bypassing the digestive system (stomach).
This provides increased cell absorption and 100% bioavailability of vitamins through IV infusion.
Booster shots are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection so there is no Gi metabolism , which also allows for increased absorption.
With oral supplements you only get about 20% absorption after it goes through the digestive system. IV vitamins remain in your system and maintain your levels for 2 – 3 weeks and an IM shot is equivalent to taking one week of oral vitamins.
So let’s start in my Ocean Oasis Spa in the Ocean Room with IV therapy. Most people think of it for hangovers but depending what unique blend of vitamins you get in your IV cocktail it is possible to boost metabolism, so fantastic as a weight loss assist! And a well kept secret are other additions like Glutathione, huge antioxidant, that can make the skin appear brighter and radiant!
You can get this here all while looking at the Ocean, maybe even catch a romantic Sunset!
