What is Intravenous Nutrition?

Intravenous nutrition offers better bioavailability of nutrients to the body’s metabolic needs since the delivery is not dependent on the gastro-intestinal system or intestinal wall membrane. The goal of intravenous nutrition therapy goes well beyond that of providing general nutritional needs for a healthy body.

The degree of disease response and improvement reported by patients is well documented in clinical studies. Intravenous nutrition also allows the body to reach optimal therapeutic levels and maintains a better control and monitoring of the conditions being treated. Greater health, vitality and well-being can be achieved for healthy patients for an improved quality of life. Athletes too benefit from the hydration and optimal vitamin absorption during the intensity of their training event or season.

The nutrients used are vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, anti-microbials and amino acids. The nutrients are administered intravenously in the office by a physician or a nurse under a doctor’s supervision. Therapy can take 30 to 90 minutes depending on how much time and nutrients are needed to complete the treatment. The patient typically reclines in a comfortable lounge chair, may eat and drink, listen to a portable music player, watch a TV, read, talk to others or sleep. The treatment generally involves very minimal discomfort and the patient is free to resume all normal activities immediately afterwards.
