How Does IV Nutritional Therapy Work?
The IV administration of nutrients can achieve blood concentrations that are not obtainable with any oral administration or even intramuscular injections. This treatment is more effective for correcting cellular nutritional deficits. When taken orally, the capacity of nutrients to penetrate the cells can be inhibited in certain disease states. IV nutritional therapy helps to deliver nutrients to the inside of cells resulting in improvement in the ability to heal and create the most beneficial immune system and anti-inflammatory response.
