What is nutrient or infusion therapy?

Most people use infusion therapy because they are not getting the proper amount of nutrients through their diet alone. Nutrient infusion therapy is a safe and effective way to receive your vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Treatment sessions typically last 30-45 minutes and may cause you to feel refreshed and energized.

IV Hydration (Liquivida) Q & A

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

Are there any side effects?

Oral vitamins can only lead to about a 30 percent absorption rate, which isn’t ideal for individuals who aren’t getting enough vitamins as it is. However, IV therapy empowers nutrients to be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream for maximum benefits. There are no major negative side effects to the treatment, especially if cleared of allergies or previous medical conditions. Some people experience a cool feeling in the arm or a mineral taste in the mouth, but this is all normal.
