IV Nutrition Q & A

What is IV nutrition?

Vitamins and minerals are essential for health and well-being, and deficiencies can cause serious health problems. IV nutrition uses a cocktail of specially selected vitamins and minerals tailored to an individual patient’s requirements. This cocktail is introduced into the patient’s body using a cannula and drip inserted into an arm vein.

Eating a healthy, varied diet is the best way to ensure you get adequate levels of micronutrients into your body, but even if you take oral supplements as well, there’s evidence that a significant quantity of the micronutrients consumed doesn’t get absorbed into the bloodstream. Many think that by bypassing the digestive system using IV nutrition, the body is able to absorb higher levels of vitamins and minerals.

 

What kind of vitamin and mineral cocktails are available?

The BodyWorks team uses specific formulations of vitamins and minerals to achieve targeted results:

Meyer’s Cocktail

A well-established IV formulation, Meyer’s Cocktail is effective for treating chronic illnesses, fatigue, viral infections, muscle aches, stress, depression, headaches, weakened immune system, allergies, and concentration problems.

Rejuvenation

The rejuvenation blend provides a glutathione boost and increases collagen production to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and suppress acne and blemishes.

Immunity

The immunity complex boosts metabolism and energy and detoxifies vital organs, as well as helping the immune system fight off bacteria and viruses.

Hydration

The hydration blend is an antioxidant-filled complex that’s perfect for assisting with postexercise recovery, general exhaustion, the effects of jet lag and hangover, improving the complexion, and managing seasonal illnesses. It also helps reduce inflammation and decrease anxiety, while boosting energy and immunity.

As researchers find out more about the benefits of IV nutrition, the BodyWorks Medical Center team applies this knowledge to help patients with a variety of different conditions.

 

Is IV nutrition safe?

Vitamins and minerals are essential to health and bodily functions, and not having sufficient levels of any of these micronutrients could seriously impact your health. On the other hand, you can have too much of a good thing, and overdoses of certain vitamins or minerals can cause their own health problems.

The BodyWorks Medical Center team takes time to discuss your diet, lifestyle, medical history, and current symptoms before preparing an IV infusion tailored to your nutritional needs. The comprehensive gathering of information ensures there’s no risk of overdosing on any of the ingredients.

The intravenous treatment is a simple medical procedure, but it must be performed correctly to ensure no air bubbles get introduced into the drip. It’s also essential to follow good infection-control practices to avoid the risk of infection. The BodyWorks Medical Center team members are qualified, experienced practitioners, and you can feel confident that they follow all the correct protocols and safety procedures.
