What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy is a quick and convenient way to deliver vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream through an IV. Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a way to deliver high concentrations of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. By bypassing the digestive system, IV vitamin therapy allows rapid absorption of higher doses of the vitamins and minerals than if the person got them through food or supplements.
- The infusions are delivered into a vein through a small tube
- Depending on the size of the dose, the infusion may take anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours
One of the most important figures in IV vitamin therapy, Dr. John Myers, developed the first and most well-known popular IV infusion in 1954 to help with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and migraines, to name a few. The Myers’ cocktail, named after Dr. John Myers, consists of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. This infusion has shown significant health benefits in many clinical trials allowing scientists to build off of his research to develop a wider array of vitamin infusions.
Why IV Vitamin Therapy?
Any vitamin taken by mouth is absorbed with about 50 percent efficacy in the digestive tract. If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at about 90 percent. This alone is a large reason many people are choosing IV vitamin therapy. With the spreading knowledge that our foods and soils are increasingly nutrient-depleted, health-minded individuals are searching for non-traditional ways to take care of their bodies.
Several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream lead to greater cell uptake.
What Type of Person Should Use IV Vitamin Therapies?
All types of people can benefit from IV vitamin therapies. In an interview with Healthline, Dena Westphalen, PharmD says,
“Vitamin infusions are being used for a wide variety of health concerns. Conditions that have responded positively to the Myers’ cocktail treatment include asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, pain, allergies, and sinus and respiratory tract infections. A number of other disease states, including angina and hyperthyroidism, have also shown promising results to IV vitamin infusions. Many people are also using IV vitamin therapy for quick rehydration after an intense sporting event, such as running a marathon, to cure a hangover, or for improved skin clarity.”

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme present in almost all cells of the body. NAD+ is essential in metabolic function, slowing the aging process, promoting athletic function, and boosting brain repair/function.
Administering a high dose of NAD+ straight into the bloodstream, compared to other routes (i.e., oral), will provide a faster, more effective outcome that quickly optimizes the body’s NAD+ levels.
