High Quality IV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a powerful treatment that ensures 100% of the nutrients to be absorbed. This method completely bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, the limiting factor for nutrient absorption. IV therapy is helpful for correcting nutritional deficiencies especially when gastrointestinal health is not optimal. Often times when our gut health is not functioning optimally we are unable to absorb nutrients from food and supplements, therefore IV therapy is the best method to restore nutrients while we heal the gut.
IVs can also be helpful if a nutrient deficiency needs to be corrected quickly or if you need higher concentrations of nutrients that you cannot absorb from food.
