Getting nutrients and vitamins doesn’t have to only include eating the right foods and taking supplements. There are now a variety of options including IV therapy. In the past decade, the treatment has become increasingly popular with a wide variety of individuals interested in improving their health, boosting their immunity, and improving the health of their skin.

What Is Intravenous Therapy?

Intravenous therapy (IV) or IV vitamin therapy is a form of treatment that includes the delivery of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream via veins. The fluid is administered via an IV bag, placed over the insertion site on the arm, and attached to the needle via a plastic tube.

The nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream and patients feel the effects immediately. At Thrive, we offer a number of IV drips, including ones that can boost your energy, immune system, and metabolism. We also offer an anti-aging drip.

An experienced provider will have the patient lie down with their arm elevated to access a vein. The provider will then disinfect the skin, insert the needle, and secure the line via tape so it cannot move. Once the IV line is in place, the nutrients will begin going through the IV and into your bloodstream.

After therapy, you can return to your normal routine immediately.

Immediate Benefits of IV Therapy

Most IV therapy drips we offer ensure immediate benefits. Because they are bypassing the stomach and going directly into the bloodstream, the benefits show up much quicker than you might expect with a supplement.

IV therapy can flush toxins, balance hormone levels, boost your immunity, improve skin health, and give you an overall energy boost.  One of the other major immediate benefits of this therapy is that it can rehydrate the body. If you’re struggling with hydration, this can be a great option.

Duration of IV Therapy Benefits

The benefits of IV vitamin therapy can last anywhere from a few days to two weeks. Patients often feel relief for hours or even days after they have received IV therapy, but the duration is different for each person. It can depend on your metabolism, age, your overall health, and your day-to-day lifestyle.

Maximizing the Benefits

To ensure you maximize the benefits of IV therapy, there are a few things you can do:

  • Be consistent with your treatment schedule
  • Stick to your provider’s schedule
  • Keep yourself hydrated and well-fed by eating a nutritious diet and drinking plenty of water
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine
