The first IV Nutrient Drips were developed and administered by Dr. John Myers in the 1970s. His research led to the popular myers’ cocktail. While you’re undergoing an IV Nutrient Drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are taken by mouth get broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, and there are limitations on how much can be absorbed (50 percent). If, however, they are given through an IV, they are absorbed at a much higher percentage (90 percent). This is because several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of vitamins, minerals and amino acids in your bloodstream lead to a greater uptake into the cells, which then use the nutrients to maintain health and fight illness.

What are the benefits of IV Nutrient Therapy?

The most direct and obvious benefit of receiving an IV Cocktail, as drips have come to be called, is bioavailability. Bioavailability is the degree and rate at which vitamins, minerals and amino acids are absorbed by the body’s circulatory system and as a result are able to have a truly active effect on the body. The importance of bioavailability is that by receiving vitamins, minerals and amino acids intravenously the degree of absorption jumps from 50% received from oral supplements to 90% if received through a drip. Other surprising benefits include:

  • increased energy levels

  • faster weight loss

  • cleansing the body of toxins & free radicals

  • better cardiovascular health

  • boosting the immune system

  • relieve stress

  • balancing hormones

IV Nutrient Therapy can also aid in treating some chronic illnesses like:

  • asthma

  • migraines

  • chronic fatigue syndrome

  • fibromyalgia

  • muscle spasms

  • pain

  • allergies, sinus and respiratory tract infections.

  • angina and hyperthyroidism

Many people are also using IV Nutrient Therapy for quick rehydration after an intense sporting event, such as running a marathon, to cure a hangover, or for improved skin clarity.

When receiving IV Nutrient Therapy there are precautions that should be taken. Anyone thinking about receiving an IV Nutrient Therapy drip should be prepared to provide a comprehensive medical history. This should include any health concerns you’ve encountered over the course of your life and any medications you’re currently taking, or have recently taken. It is important for you to include not only prescriptions, but over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, and teas that you drink regularly. If you have any concerns it is always advisable to speak to your GP or medical practitioner about whether IV Nutrient Therapy is Appropriate for you.

How long does an IV Nutrient Drip last?

IV Nutrient drips generally take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, and are administered by a licensed medical professional observing the infusion. Our caring, fully trained nurse will be there guiding you through the process.

Simply put, IV Nutrient Therapy is an extremely valuable immune boosting treatment when provided by a qualified fully trained medical professional.
