What is a Vitamin Drip?

When researching Intravenous Vitamin Therapy or Vitamin Drips, the amount of search results can be overwhelming. Many of the top hits in a search engine will read “Vitamin IV Therapy-The Latest Celebrity Fad” or “Vitamin Drips for Hangovers”. While vitamin IV  therapy has gained the attention of the media and celebrities, it is much more than a “fad”,  has been around for over 50 years and is beneficial for much more than hangovers.

 

An IV vitamin drip is a “cocktail” of nutrients that is put together in a saline solution. In the 1960s Dr. John Myers proposed that individuals were only absorbing a fraction of the vitamins and minerals ingested orally on a daily basis.  Due to the digestive and detoxification systems along with any complications someone might have with these systems, IV delivery is the only way to allow for 100% absorption of nutrients.  Dr. Myers stated that a mixture of key nutritional supplements might be given in a single intravenous infusion. Dr. Myers’ original vitamin IV  therapy cocktail was a mixture of magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and an assortment of B vitamins diluted in sterile water, know today as the Myers Cocktail. Dr. Myers thoroughly tested his formula, and today it is the most recognized and widely administered  IV vitamin therapy formula.  Using medical grade vitamins, minerals and sterile equipment, these IVs are exactly what would be found in a hospital setting, but with customized nutrients for an individuals specific needs.  The IV delivery system allows for a much higher dosage of nutrients to be administered safely and effectively while having 100% absorption at a cellular level. IV vitamin therapy allows all of these vitamins and minerals to bypass the digestive path and be transported directly to the bloodstream.
