What are vitamins?

Vitamins are essential nutrients that cells in our bodies use to grow, develop and function. You need the ideal balance of nutrients to optimise the cell functions, and reality is we rarely do. The first vitamin drips were developed and administered by Dr John Myers in the 1970s. His research led to the development of the popular Myer’s cocktail

What are the symptoms that could indicate that you need IV vitamins?

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Regular infections
  • Dry skin
  • Joint & body pains
  • Decreased sport endurance

What is the difference between oral and IV vitamins?

  • It all comes in with bio-availability and absorption. IV therapy allows 100% of the vitamin to enter your bloodstream and about 90% to be absorbed; this is impossible when taking vitamins orally. The reason for that is the bypassing of your digestive system –  oral vitamins have a bio-availability of about 50% at most. Absorption of oral treatment is also dependent on age, metabolism, health status, genetics and interactions with other products we consume. The result is that you feel better, faster. 
  • The combination of the specific vitamin drips are selected to target specific things – this way you do not take hundreds of oral formulations just to benefit from a select few vitamins. 
  • The foundation of IV therapy is obviously fluid, so it has the added benefit to hydrate your body much faster and more efficiently. 
  • Avoid common side effects of oral supplements, especially gastrointestinal tract like reflux. This is because the vitamins are not travelling through the digestive system.
