What Is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a method of inserting fluids directly into veins that often provides immediate hydration and relief for a range of conditions. Instead of requiring you to consume nutrients and medication through your digestive system, an intravenous approach delivers them straight to your bloodstream, allowing a higher concentration to reach your organs and tissue and start working faster.

FAQ

The fluids inside an IV bag depend on the type of therapy you are undergoing. Intravenous solutions can contain saline, vitamins, minerals, and medication. Some common components of the IV fluids in bags include:

  • Saline: Saline solution is usually the base ingredient in an intravenous drip bag. Saline, made up of water and sodium chloride, serves as a delivery system for the other components in your IV. Saline also helps hydrate the body. 
  • Dextrose: Dextrose is a type of sugar. Unlike some of your favorite sweet desserts, this kind of sugar is good for you. Dextrose helps normalize low levels of blood sugar. Because it is a sugar, your body can also convert dextrose into energy. 
  • Lactated Ringer’s: If you are a fan of medical dramas, you have almost certainly heard the term “Lactated Ringer’s.” This IV solution contains water, calcium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, and sodium lactate. Like saline solution, Lactated Ringer’s can deliver other ingredients. It is also commonly used during surgery and to treat dehydration. 
  • Vitamin B: Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, B-9, and B-12 are collectively known as vitamin B complex. Vitamin B complex directly contributes to important bodily functions, like metabolism and nerve function. Vitamin B complex is often delivered via IV vitamin therapy for patients who have trouble naturally absorbing vitamins. 
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is important for a healthy immune system function. If you are sick or feel like you are becoming sick, vitamin C can be a beneficial ingredient. Vitamin C sustains the immune system’s pathogen response, helping it fight diseases and prevent them from onsetting.
  • Calcium: Your IV may include calcium, which is a mineral that we need to build strong bones and teeth. We consume calcium in our diet through foods like dairy and green, leafy vegetables. Intravenous calcium can supplement a low-calcium diet or treat certain conditions like acute hypocalcemia and hypoparathyroidism.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in healthy metabolic function. It has numerous benefits, including reducing inflammation, combating leg cramps in pregnant women, and even helping to prevent migraines. 
  • Antioxidants: Antioxidants help protect your body’s cells from a number of different diseases. Your treatment may include different types of antioxidants, such as glutathione, or vitamins A, C, or E. 
  • Antibiotics: A patient will likely receive antibiotics via an IV bag in cases of respiratory infection, bacterial skin infection, gastrointestinal infection, meningitis, Lyme disease, and more. Common IV antibiotics include penicillins, oxazolidinones, cephalosporins, glycopeptides, fluoroquinolones, carbapenems, and nitroimidazoles. 

One of the main benefits of IV Therapy is fast, more effective results without gastrointestinal side effects, absorption issues or loss of potency.

The process allows the nutrients to go right into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and allowing you to have more energy, think more clearly, and enjoy a better mood.

The benefits will differ depending on the condition treated, the protocol used, the overall health of the client, and how many treatments are done. Some reported benefits include:

  • Stronger immunity (warding off a cold or flu)
  • Enhanced mood
  • Increased sports recovery time
  • More energy
  • Improved concentration and mental focus
  • Increased calmness and relaxation
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improved jet lag
  • Improved hangover
  • Reduced instances of migraines
  • Boosted fertility and hormonal imbalance
  • Improved complexion
  • Reduced signs of ageing

 

The answer depends on what you are feeling or ailing from. In some cases, you may feel the effects almost immediately as the IV fluid mixes with your blood vessels. 

Typically, the effects become fully noticeable after the 12 – 24 hours after infusion, although, many people report feeling better right after treatment.

The effects last for 8 days to 3 weeks depending on the condition, cocktail and type of IV Therapy.

Today, the administration of intravenous fluids via IV infusion is common and generally safe, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing, which can increase the risk of adverse effects.

If you have any medical condition, it is always advised to consult with your doctor prior to treatment to avoid any complications.

Also, because of the puncture of your skin – there’s a risk of infection. Although the risk of skin or blood infection is unlikely, it’s important to only consult with a qualified medical professional, who ensures a safe and healthy vitamin infusion.
