Nutrient deficiencies may occur despite eating healthy. Factors such as stress, digestive issues, poor sleep, and immune system assaults can lead to nutrient depletion or inadequate nutrient production. Furthermore, an overwhelmed system can easily derail even the best of dietary intentions.
In addition, environmental burdens, illness, and even exercise can cause oxidative stress in the body. This can lead to the formation of damaging free radicals which may contribute to an even greater risk for disease. Glutathione, the master antioxidant, is not able to be orally absorbed.
IV nutrition provides vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and much more. IV hydration can be better than drinking water when digestive issues make it difficult to keep fluids down or when the body’s demands exceed intake. It is also a great way to rehydrate in a hurry because IV fluids are dispersed more quickly throughout the body.
While IV therapy has many benefits, it is not a replacement for drinking water and eating healthy. We strongly encourage our patients to eat a varied diet rich in nutrients and drink plenty of fluids to maintain healthy hydration.
