WHAT ARE IV DRIPS?
IV drips can have different formulas, but they all contain two main components – saline solution and vitamins.
Saline solution is a sterile mix of water and sodium chloride. It hydrates the body and eases the process of vitamins delivery.
Vitamins are organic nutrients that help the body to work properly. Together with antioxidants, they keep the body healthy and strong.
Some IV drips formulas can increase energy levels, keep the metabolism healthy for losing weight and much more. Other formulas can even have diluted medications that relieve pain and prevent nausea.
WHAT VITAMIN COCKTAILS CAN BE USED IN IV DRIP THERAPY?
Usually, IV drips therapy formulas contain Vitamin B and C, magnesium, zinc and calcium. They can also have amino acids. Vitamin infusions can consist of just one vitamin such as vitamin C, or they can consist of a cocktail of vitamins and minerals.
The most usual vitamin cocktails that can be found in IV drips are:
● Hydration IV drips – this formula can help patients who lost a lot of fluids because of diarrhea or vomiting, but it can also help athletes to improve their performance.
● Anti-Stress & Antioxidant – this formula contains Vitamins C and B and magnesium and can help with boosting energy level and improving the immune system.
● Immunity Booster IV – this cocktail consists of potent antioxidants like cysteine & arginine. They protect the body from the flu and viruses.
● Detoxification Booster IV Infusion – this formula consists of vitamins, minerals and essential fluids that decrease the toxic load in the body. Toxins are usually stored in fat cells.
WHY ARE IV DRIPS SPECIAL?
IV drips are different than oral supplements and medications because they go straight to the bloodstream. Oral supplements first pass through the digestive system, where they are metabolized and then sent to circulation. Factors like malabsorption problems, age, illnesses, level of activity, stress and others can affect how well the body will absorb medications and supplements.
On the other hand, IV drips consist of ingredients that are completely absorbed by the body because as previously mentioned they go directly to the blood flow. The body takes the amount it needs and excretes the rest. This way the body is maximally nourished and protected by the IV drips ingredients. The ingredients go straight to the cells and this decreases the time that is needed for a supplement or medication to react.
The reason why IV drips are so effective is that they get around the digestive system and get directly into the bloodstream. This treatment therapy can be beneficial for people who find it hard to ingest fluids or medications and for the ones who have malabsorption issues.

THE VERY TREATMENT
After the consultations, Lucia’s nurse takes the blood pressure before and after the procedure. The nurse cleans and disinfects the skin of the area where the injection is performed. The nurse locates the patient’s vein and inserts a small plastic tube or the catheter into the vein with a needle that is removed once the catheter is in its place. This is called an IV line and this line is attached to the bag that contains the saline solution with the specific formula that targets the patient’s health needs. It can be a combination of different vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and other ingredients. The solution then slowly drips and carries the fluid directly into the patient’s bloodstream.
The only discomfort that the patient may feel is the moment when the skin is punctured with the needle. After that the patient can relax, work, read or even take a nap.
During the therapy from 250 to 500ml of fluid is injected into the patient’s bloodstream. The nutrients are delivered fast into the body and 90 to 100% of them are absorbed. The amount of absorbed nutrients is more than double when compared to the oral taking of medications.
