What is IV vitamin drip?
IV vitamin drip therapy is an innovative treatment that replaces essential nutrients and water in the body by delivering an infusion of vitamins, minerals and water directly to the bloodstream via an IV vitamin drip. Using a drip ensures that more nutrients reach the body’s cells so the body can absorb and use them (unlike oral vitamins and supplements where a higher percentage of active nutrients never reach the bloodstream).
This can help boost energy levels and depending on the infusion, increase immunity, lift your mood and even combat ageing.
What do the infusions contain?
They are a blend of water, vitamins and minerals which are tailored to each individual and their needs. All of the ingredients are nutrients that are essential to life – but the body cannot produce them by itself. Also see our vitamin injections.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that keeps the body functioning. Vitamin C can be found in foods and dietary supplements, it aids in many biological functions, including the synthesis of collagen, the healing of wounds and the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant meaning that it can neutralise free radicals that can damage cells. Vitamin C is considered to be an immune booster and has been widely touted as a natural defence against the common cold.
Vitamin B-Complex is composed of eight B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7,B9 and B12). Each of these essential vitamins contributes to your overall bodily function and play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. As the building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. Vitamin B complex helps prevent infections and helps support or promote cell health, growth of red blood cells, boost energy levels, improve eyesight, brain and nerve function and aid in better digestion.
Vitamin D ingested orally can take weeks, even months, to have an impact on your health – and much of the dose is lost when it is converted in the gut. However, intramuscular vitamin D injections have a much more immediate impact. And because the vitamins are administered directly into the muscle, bypassing the gut, a much higher percentage of the vitamins can be utilised by the body. Vitamin D injections can offer a boost for your health, help feeling run down, have a chronic health condition, gut problems, or simply aren’t getting enough vitamin D from your lifestyle and/or diet.
Hayfever symptoms plague many of us and have a detrimental effect on quality of life and ability to work optimally. If you have severe symptoms that fail to respond to other treatments, such as oral antihistamine medications or topical eye drops it is possible to request an appointment to discuss the hay fever injection. The hyafever injection is a corticosteroid injection. The medication has anti-inflammatory properties which slightly suppress the immune system and stop the body’s natural pollen response from overreacting. The treatment starts to work approximately 2 days after treatment and results last up to 3 months.
