What is Vitamin IV Therapy?

Vitamin or nutritional IV therapy uses a mixture of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in an intravenous solution to help provide a health boost. Because the administration is through an IV into your bloodstream, it gives immediate results.

Healthline explains that you should only undergo IV nutrition therapy under the care of a medical professional who can ensure you get the proper types of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins at the right dosage. He or she can customize it to your specific health needs.

This type of therapy aims to help you get the immediate absorption of vitamins at a level you cannot get through nutrition alone. When you eat foods, your body will breakdown the vitamins in the food, resulting in you only absorbing a small percentage.

On the other hand, IV therapy allows you to absorb a much higher level of vitamins, which will enable you to get the maximum benefits.


Women's Health states that nutritional IV therapy has many uses and may be useful in treating:

  • Low energy
  • Compromised immune system
  • Weight issues
  • Anxiety
  • Signs of aging
  • Dehydration
  • Pain, such as that from fibromyalgia
  • Infections
  • Gastrointestinal issues
