IV vitamin therapy is a quick and comfortable procedure where vitamins and minerals are administered directly into the bloodstream intravenously. Many medical practitioners strongly recommend IV vitamin therapy, since it can offer a wide variety of health benefits.
Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy offers a host of benefits over taking vitamin supplements orally or getting vitamins through food and beverages:
- Supplements, food, and beverages need to be digested, and the nutrients have to be assimilated into the blood. This process takes time. Direct infusion into the blood is a much faster process.
- Food, beverages, and oral vitamin supplements are processed by the liver and the stomach. The efficacy of the vitamins is diluted during this. In contrast, because IV vitamin therapy delivers the vitamins directly to the bloodstream, 100% of the supplement is received.
- When certain vitamin supplements pass through the digestive system, there is a possibility of side effects like nausea and upset stomach. Direct infusion to the blood helps avoid these side effects.

What Is an IV Vitamin Therapy Treatment Like?
A IV vitamin therapy treatment session is quite simple and only takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete. The patient lies down, and then an IV needle is placed into a vein. The IV bottle contains the chosen vitamin therapy. The vitamins are transferred through the IV directly into the blood.
After the treatment, patients can immediately return to their everyday activities without any need for recovery or aftercare. There may be very slight bruising or swelling, but this will only be temporary and will fade shortly.
How Much Does IV Vitamin Therapy Cost?
The cost of IV vitamin therapy varies from med spa to med spa. Price is dependent on factors like the type of therapy chosen.
