IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is an excellent way to deliver vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream to enhance your wellness and replenish deficiencies.
What nutrients are administered via IV?
Depending on your personal requests and your health, you can choose from a vast selection of effective formulations.
In some cases, your provider can also create a modified, customized IV cocktail incorporating the specific nutrients your body needs.
Hangover cocktails are designed to help you get over your hangover. Hangover cocktails usually contain a blend of electrolytes, vitamin B, and other ingredients.
A Myers’ cocktail is a nutrient mix named after the doctor who first developed IV nutrition treatment. The Myers’ cocktail contains calcium, B vitamins, magnesium, and vitamin C that can be mixed at varying doses.
The IV therapies offered at Pacific Medispa & Regenerative Medicine include various other nutrients, such as:
- Alpha lipoic acid
- Folic acid
- B12 and B-complex vitamins
Many of these essential nutrients can improve hair, nails, and skin, eye health, and more.
What happens during IV therapy?
When you’re sitting comfortably, your provider inserts the IV and blends all of the nutrients into the same solution. Using the IV, your provider delivers the nutrients directly into your bloodstream.
The treatment itself typically lasts anywhere from 20 minutes to three hours. You can even choose to watch TV, read a book, or simply relax. There’s no downtime after your IV therapy, and you can get back to your daily activities right away.
You can experience the benefits of IV therapy for seven days or longer, and you might even choose weekly or bi-weekly sessions.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
With IV therapy, you can receive a much higher dose of nutrients compared to other methods of ingestion. Since those nutrients are present in much higher concentrations and bypass the digestive tract, an IV infusion significantly improves the chance that they’ll reach your cells quickly.
