Should you ditch your Oral Vitamins; Why people prefer vitamin IV therapy to oral supplementation ?

By March 31, 2021No Comments

10% of the world population is deficient in at least one vitamin. As more and more people are learning about vitamins and why they’re so important for our health, many of them choose to supplement orally. However, while oral supplementation is better than not supplementing at all, it may not be the most effective solution.

This is down to several factors, the main one being its absorption rate: When taken orally, vitamins travel through the digestive system; the stomach, small intestine, large intestine and the liver before reaching the blood. Consequently, only around 20% of the vitamin is absorbed by the body. On the other hand, when administered through IV therapy, the vitamins are infused directly into the bloodstream, allowing more of the vitamin to be absorbed at a high absorption rate of 90%. 

Furthermore, IV therapy can be tailored to each individual depending on their needs, making the dosage more adequate and hence safer and more efficient than the generic dosage found in oral supplementation. 

Not only is the dosage more adequate but it is also much purer. Most supplements contain fillers, additives and inferior ingredients that can reduce their efficiency and even create health concerns such as problems with the stomach lining.

Last but not least is of course the convenience that IV vitamin therapy offers. Taking pills everyday, and remembering to do so, can be quite a challenge even for the most organised person. IV vitamin therapy allows for a higher dosage of vitamin to be administered during a treatment which in some cases is enough for the entire year. This saves you the stress of daily supplementation. 

In conclusion, IV vitamin therapy is overall much easier and more efficient than oral supplementation. So why wait any longer to make the switch?
