Intravenous vitamin therapy or special intravenous nutrition represents one of the most popular alternatives for health and beauty care.
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is the administration of intravenous vitamin and mineral mixtures. The application of intravenous treatment is fast and complete absorption unlike other routes of administration. The application of this type of therapy has an average of 45 minutes to 1 hour when the administration is by infusion (continuous drip).
Why is IV therapy effective?
Vitamins and minerals are not produced by the body, for this reason, it is necessary to obtain nutrients from food (the most common form) or supplements. Both alternatives require its passage through the digestive system until it reaches the intestine for absorption.
The IV therapy of vitamins and minerals is administered directly to the systemic circulation, there is no passage through the gastrointestinal system, all nutrients go directly to the cells and tissues of the body.
What are the substances administered in IV therapy?
The most common substances are vitamins and minerals preparations, other substances such as glutathione and amino acids are also added due to their health benefits.
The most used vitamins in IV therapy are the B, C, D and E complex vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, selenium, fluorine, and iron.
Where is IV therapy performed?
IV therapy is applied in centers that are suitable and authorized to perform medical procedures because qualified personnel is needed for its administration.
CURE Salon & Spa meets these characteristics because it has professionals who are duly certified by the health authorities.
