Calgary IV vitamin therapy is a unique delivery system for vitamins. It works by administering vitamins and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream bypassing the digestive system. This process provides improve cell absorption and total bioavailability of nutrients through an IV infusion. In comparison, oral supplementation provides about 20% absorption after it passes through the digestive tract. When needed, booster shots are given via intramuscular injection so there is no gastrointestinal metabolism. After an infusion, the effects of the vitamins remain in your body for 2-3 weeks. The booster shot is the equivalent of one week’s worth of oral supplements.
Calgary IV vitamin therapy frequency is individually decided. For most people in good health who are doing this therapy to prevent illness and maintain wellness, twice a month is suggested. To help determine your appropriate dose, we perform a micronutrient lab panel. This test lets us see what your nutritional deficiencies are and what vitamins and supplements will provide you with vitality and robust health. This delivery system dates back to the 1980’s. It has been used to address many health issues and keep you in top form. To find out if Calgary IV vitamin therapy is right for you, give us a call today.
