3. How is Vitamin IV therapy different from taking vitamins orally?

Vitamin IV therapy offers several benefits over oral vitamins.

For starters, people who take vitamins by mouth only absorb about 20 percent of the vitamin or supplement. With IV infusion, the body absorbs nearly 100 percent of the nutrients. Secondly, vitamin infusion therapy dosages can be personalized to meet the patient’s specific needs according to their genetics, age, medical conditions, and metabolism. Finally, vitamin IV therapy improves the body’s ability to absorb vitamins A, C, and E that boost hydration.

4. How do I prepare for an appointment?

Preparing for your IV therapy appointment is just about as simple as preparing for a visit to the spa. Make sure you’re hydrated so your veins are easy to work with. Check out our Vein Prep Kit if you need some extra help! Eat a snack or small meal, but don’t worry if you forget, the drip lab should have snacks available. Dress comfortably and bring something to keep your mind busy.

5. What should I expect at an IV drip lab?

When searching for an IV drip lab, it’s important to know that not every IV lab meets high standards of quality, service, and care. Look for one that is 797 compliant so you know that they are committed to scrupulous sterile and safe practices.

Upon arrival, you will be met by a staff member who will review your medical history and conduct a basic lab assessment. The team will explain which IV infusion is best for you and how it all works. Some infusions can last up to 90 minutes.

You’ll leave feeling recharged and refreshed!
