Intravenous vitamin therapy offers plenty of benefits, including reducing pain and speeding up recovery time after surgery, helping to increase the intensity of workouts, preventing illness, restoring skin’s youthful glow, and boosting energy. But how does it actually work? Sometimes vitamins and minerals we consume can bypass our digestive system and not be absorbed properly. Intravenous vitamin therapy gets important vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream to help the body heal. Popular IV cocktails include Myers’ cocktail, glutathione and collagen boost, all delivered while you relax in a comfy chair in a spa-like setting.
