What is Nutrient IV Therapy?

This therapy provides the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids your body needs, in the most efficient and effective way— directly into the bloodstream. While the digestive system can be effective at absorbing nutrients from food or supplements, it’s sometimes not enough. By bypassing the digestive system, your body has more immediate access to the nutrients and substances it needs to function at its best.

Why is Nutrient IV Therapy Effective?

Sometimes, the body is in great need of certain nutrients, but cannot absorb them when taken orally in the required doses because they are too large. Direct infusion with the blood stream ensures a much higher rate of absorption into the body versus the digestive system. Because intravenous treatments are infused directly into the bloodstream, patients do not have to worry about stomach upset, issues with absorption, or loss of potency. This also allows us to administer large doses without worrying about gastrointestinal side effects, which can limit dosing.

What kinds of nutrients can be administered?

There are many IV infusions that can be used to help benefit you, including Magnesium, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Glutathione, and more. The IV mixture that is right for you can be determined during a consultation with Dr. Robinson.

What can be treated with Nutrient IV Therapy?

This process can be highly beneficial to patients who suffer from illnesses or complications that arise from vitamin or nutrient deficiency, including cold & flu, migraine, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, mood disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, compromised immune systems, and many more. It can also benefit patients who are deficient in nutrients but are unable to take them orally. Nutrient IV can also be given before and after surgery or chemotherapy to help with recovery.

What is the process like?

Your Nutrient IV Therapy session will depend on your treatment plan. Nutrients can be infused over the course of one to three hours, in some cases, or less. Dr. Robinson can give you the best idea of what your customized treatment plan will look like.
