More and more people are heading to clinics and getting hooked up to vitamin IV for their vitalizing cocktail infusion.
Pop star Rihanna tweeted last month a picture of her arm hooked up to an intravenous drip. Come to find out, she was enjoying the so-called “Party-Girl drip.” Other celebrities that have also been engaging in the liquid vitamin craze include Simon Cowell, Cindy Crawford and Madonna.
Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.
Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, COPD, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, and even the common cold.
By practicing this type of “evidence-based medicine” we can custom tailor our IV infusions to ensure maximal effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.
Taking vitamins orally might soon fall out of favor as more Americans opt to drip them straight into their veins.
Vitamins are magic, especially when they’re injected. Roll up your sleeve, find a vein, insert a needle and watch that colorful concoction flow directly into your bloodstream.
