IV therapy stands for Intravenous Therapy. Vitamins and minerals are administered directly into the venous system which therefore, allows for 100% absorption into the body. Oral administration of vitamins and minerals (or by mouth) are not as highly absorbed, and even less so if one has any known gastrointestinal issues. Some of these include IBD (irritable bowel disease such as crones or colitis), IBS (irritable bowel disease), gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), and any other possible absorption issues such as multiple food sensitivities, or leaky-gut syndrome.
It is also commonly used to help treat low energy, fatigue, fibromyalgia, or for general health maintenance. The Immune Enhancer IV therapy blend, because of its high dose immune factors are great for helping support the immune system from already existing infections, or as a preventative measure before getting sick. As well, it is also commonly administered before or after long flights, to help rebuild the immune defenses when sitting in a small closed environment with recycled air. The Love Your Liver IV, is wonderful for speeding up the detoxification processes of the liver, or if one has been exposed to environmental toxins as well as, excessive alcohol consumption. Glutathione is the most abundant antioxidant found in the body. It is very poorly absorbed orally, and therefore it is very commonly added as a liver detoxification agent in an IV therapy protocol. It is also well researched in the management of liver detoxification and liver disorders and is known to have anti-aging effects.
