IV Treatment Therapy - what it is & how it works?

IV Treatment Therapy

Your body needs vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to maintain your health, but it can be difficult to get all the vitamins your body needs through food and supplements alone. Oral supplements take time to get absorbed into your body, and you miss out on a small percentage of the vitamins you take when they're dissolved in the stomach. That isn't the case with IV treatment therapy.

Convenient Urgent Care is proud to offer IV treatment therapy to help you feel your best. IV treatment therapy gives you a full dose of nutrients and hydration fluids in just 45 minutes to keep your body happy and healthy.

How does it work?

When you undergo an IV vitamin drip, you receive a liquid mixture of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals through a small tube that's inserted into a vein by medical professionals. IV vitamin drips are commonly used in hospitals and other medical clinics because they give the body a higher concentration of vitamins and allow these vitamins to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream.

When you take a vitamin orally, you only absorb 50% of the vitamin because it's broken down in the stomach and digestive tract. With IV therapies, you receive a higher percentage of vitamins (around 90%) because it's delivered directly into the bloodstream. This higher percentage gives your cells the ability to absorb more vitamins, which helps your body maintain its health and fight illness.

Keep your body hydrated

Another perk of IV treatment therapy is that the fluids used in the vitamin drip hydrate your body immediately. This means you'll feel better and improve the appearance of your skin faster than you would from simply drinking water all day. When your skin is well-hydrated, it's more supple, resilient, and clear of acne.
