If You Have a Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency, IV Nutrition Could Be a Great Option For You

iv, nutrition

Vitamins and minerals are essential to keep your body running smoothly. Even if you eat a balanced diet, you still may not get all the nutrients you need. Intravenous (IV) nutrition can help you get what you’re missing. And by delivering the nutrients directly into your bloodstream, they’re absorbed by your body faster and more completely because they’re bypassing your digestive system.

What is a vitamin and mineral deficiency?

A vitamin and mineral deficiency occurs when your body isn’t accessing or absorbing enough of the essential nutrients for optimal health. There are many vitamins and minerals your body needs every day, and you may be short on some.

A vitamin and mineral deficiency can cause poor health and disease. The experienced medical professionals here at BodyWorks Medical Center in Carol Stream, Illinois, can determine if you have a vitamin and mineral deficiency and work with you to see if IV nutrition may be right for you.

How is a vitamin and mineral deficiency diagnosed?

Our team of doctors at BodyWorks Medical Center talks with you about any problems you’re experiencing and examines you for signs of a vitamin or mineral deficiency. Tests can help confirm if you have a deficiency.

How does IV nutrition work?

Intravenous (IV) nutrition uses a specially blended cocktail of vitamins and minerals tailored to address your deficiency. We deliver the cocktail into your bloodstream using an intravenous cannula and drip inserted into one of the veins in your arm. This bypasses your digestive system, giving you more direct and immediate access to these essential substances.
