Intravenous (IV) vitamin, mineral, and amino acid therapy allows for an infusion of concentrated nutrients directly into the blood stream, which provides the cells in our body with immediate access to therapeutic doses of nutrients required for healing. When properly administered, IV nutrition therapy is a safe and effective way to help support health and wellness.
IV nutrition therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the blood stream in order to correct deficiencies.
