At Make You Well, we offer our patients a variety of elective IV drip therapies. A vitamin drip is a medical treatment in which the patient receives vitamins via a small tube inserted into a vein. Treatment can last anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour.
Oral vitamins get broken down by the stomach and digestive tract, vitamin IV drips absorb directly into the bloodstream. As a result, the absorption rate for vitamins or medications given by IV is up to 40% higher. This means that IV vitamins are a quick and effective way to get necessary medications into a patient’s cells. They can deliver higher concentrations of medications at one time and also allow for more precise dosing. They may also be recommended for patients who have tried oral supplements but have not responded well. Finally, IV drips help ensure sufficient vitamin levels in patients who are not able to swallow or digest vitamins by mouth.
Some of the IV Vitamin Drips offered at MYW include: Myer’s Cocktail, Immunity Drip, Beauty Drip, Weight Loss Drip, Endurance Drip, and others. Depending on the one chosen, IV Vitamin drips can help repair damaged cells, detox the liver, boost your immune system, assist in the metabolism (breaking down) of toxins, and protect you against free radicals.
One of our popular IV Vitamin Drips, the Beauty Drip, includes Glutathione. Glutathione is known as the ruler of all antioxidants, it is a workhorse nutrient that benefits your body in a whole host of ways—chief among them being its anti-aging effects.
