IV Vitamin Infusion Therapy - what it is and why you need it!



These dogs days of summer can be summed up in one word...HOT! If you work outside or if you attended the Railbird Music Festival at Keeneland this past weekend, this does not come as a shock. Summer is definitely having its final moments of glory before fall arrives on September 22nd. In addition to hot temperatures, many of us are burning the candle at both ends with getting back to our jobs full-time and with all of the kids' activities that come along with returning to school. Without a doubt, you are probably dehydrated and suffering the effects like low energy, headaches, sleepiness, confusion and irritability. This can be remedied by drinking lots of fluids, of course, but there's another alternative that will have you feeling better immediately and it's called IV nutrient infusion therapy.


Until a few years ago, I had never heard of IV nutrient infusion therapy. Given the fact I hate needles, even the name gave me pause. But having had it performed a couple of times, I can honestly say it's nothing to be afraid of and in fact, can be a fantastic addition to any self-care regimen.


So what is it?

IV nutrient infusion therapy is the administration of vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream through an IV. The process takes about 45 minutes and can be performed in a variety of settings. According to InfusionHealth.org, the benefits of infusion therapy can include increased energy, enhanced hydration, reduction in stress and anxiety symptoms, a boost to the immune system, improved skin, better brain function and improved athletic efficiency.


Why not just take vitamins?

Did you know that you only absorb about 20% of the vitamin supplements you ingest orally? your stomach acts as a filter and thus you don't get all of the nutrients you think you are getting with a tablet. With IV infusion, you get them straight into your bloodstream.


What's in it?

Vitamins, electrolytes, glutathione, and enzymes. There are also a variety of mixtures you can receive including immune boosting, hydration and recovery, metabolism boost, and more. The team at Anderson Aesthetics and Wellness will assess your needs and make sure you get just what your body needs.


Now, I am not a medical doctor by any means, but from my own personal experience I can tell you that if administered by a professional like our friends at Anderson Aesthetics and Wellness, it is a safe way of getting a little boost that leaves you feeling so much better!
