We’re often asked about the benefits of oral vs IV supplementation, and also if there really is a need for vitamins at all? We discuss these below.
Recommended guidelines for vitamin and mineral supplementation in specific cases:
The difference between the two all comes down to the delivery system.
While oral supplements work fine for day-to-day living, there’s a good chance you’re not getting 100% of the nutrients you ingest. Your body has to do a lot of work to break down vitamins and minerals and get them into your bloodstream. Water-soluble vitamins are large molecules that require assistance just to pass from your intestinal tract into your bloodstream.
Additionally, your body’s ability to transport these vitamins can be greatly affected by your lifestyle and health. Many medications, illnesses, chronic conditions, and even alcohol consumption can reduce your stomach’s ability to transport nutrients, which means you don’t get the nutrients you need.
With IV vitamin and mineral drip therapy, you skip all of that extra work and bring the nutrients directly where they belong – to your blood. From there, they are transported directly to the cells where they are needed!
Because of the 100% absorption of the nutrients, it has been suggested that the effects of vitamin and mineral drip therapy last longer than a typical multivitamin – multiple days of benefit from just an hour spent in the DripBar. You can book your appointment online.
