The most common question we get at The IV Lounge is what is the difference between over the counter vitamin supplements and IV vitamin therapy? The popular misconception is that IV Therapy is more expensive, and takes longer than your regular vitamin pills every morning. In reality, IV therapy takes less time and cost than regular oral supplements, and here’s why.
There are many benefits of IV Therapy as opposed to oral vitamins, the most noticeable of them all is ABSORPTION! It’s that simple, IV therapy offers 100% absorption, and delivers 100% of each vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant into your bloodstream.
You can relax in our lounge, or snooze in our massage chair, while your treatment delivers abundant doses of nourishment.
Absorption means that your GI tract doesn’t have to go to the work of breaking down the food you eat into vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and amino acids. Your small intestine doesn’t have to pass them through its walls, and your cells don’t have to seek out these molecules. The dose you receive while having IV Therapy is delivered right where you need it and has an immediate effect!
When you take a vitamin orally, your body has to do a lot of work to move that vitamin into your bloodstream, this process is fairly complex and quite inefficient.
Water-soluble vitamins, for example, are large molecules. They can’t pass through from your intestines directly into the bloodstream as IV vitamins can. Not only that, oral vitamins compete with each other for access to your bloodstream.
Taking supplements is still a way for your body to receive nutrients, however it is nowhere near as effective or efficient as IV therapy.
