IV vitamin therapy is a medical procedure that is often used in doctors’ offices and hospitals to supply a patient with fluids, nutrients, and, in some cases, medication.

IV vitamin therapy is a medical procedure that is often used in doctors’ offices and hospitals to supply a patient with fluids, nutrients, and, in some cases, medication.

When a patient receives treatment via an IV, a nurse starts the procedure by preparing and inserting a needle into a vein in the patient’s arm.

This needle is connected to an intravenous (IV) line, which periodically receives drips of a specialized liquid from a sealed bag.

How IV Vitamin Therapy Works

While IV vitamin therapy has typically been administered in an inpatient context, patients can also get treatment with an IV at home. In fact, research found that in-home treatments had the same, if not, better quality and patient satisfaction.

During an at-home IV procedure, a Registered Nurse visits your house at a pre-scheduled time. After the nurse arrives, the procedure goes as follows:

Step One: The nurse will prepare you by making sure that you are comfortable and clarifying what your IV procedure will entail. If you have any questions or concerns before undergoing IV therapy, the nurse will address any issues or concerns before the treatment begins.

Step Two: Once you are comfortable, the Registered Nurse will disinfect the area where the IV line will be inserted. This will minimize the risk of infection or contamination.

Step Three: After disinfecting, the nurse will insert the needle directly into the vein of your arm. You may feel a slight pinch when the needle is inserted, however, the discomfort is almost always brief. 

After the needle is inserted, the rest of the procedure can be relaxing, soothing, and comfortable.

Step Four: An IV treatment typically takes between 45 minutes and an hour and a half to complete. 

The Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy

If you are trying to live a healthier life, IV vitamin therapy can help you reach your goals.

Some of the top benefits of IV vitamin therapy include:

Rich in Nutrients

IV vitamin therapy can provide you with beneficial nutrients, which include a specialized blend of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, amino acids, and other beneficial substances that serve important roles within your body.

While you can also get these nutrients from foods or supplements, an IV therapy session delivers them directly into your bloodstream, where they can be easily absorbed and used by your body.

The higher the absorption rate is, the better the results and concentration is received intravenously.

Improved Athletic Performance

Those who are always seeking the next adventure and push their bodies to the limit require more nutrients and vitamins to maintain performance. IV vitamin therapy is designed to help flush out free radicals, provide hydration, promote healing, and boost muscle recovery.

Increased Wellness

Overall wellness is more than just your physical health, but your mental as well. IV vitamin treatments deliver nutrients that the body can use and absorb immediately.

What Is IV Vitamin Therapy Used For?

At-home IV treatments can be beneficial for people in a wide array of circumstances. Below are several of the most common uses for at-home IV therapy.

Athletic Recovery

Competitive weightlifters, marathon runners, performance athletes, and individuals looking to boost their performance often find themselves achy, exhausted, and completely drained after a rough workout. If you train hard for any sport, you can benefit greatly from ivee’s Athletic Recovery treatment.

Immune Support

An at-home IV treatment can supply your body with immunity-boosting ingredients like vitamin C, zinc, and more. Whether you are feeling sick or ready or trying to avoid catching something, an IV treatment is worth considering. ivee’s Illness Remedy treatment is specially designed to give the body nutrients that may help you avoid colds and viruses and recover when you get sick.

Hangovers

If you’re a fan of living life to the fullest, you may find yourself hungover from time to time. Hangover symptoms often arise because of dehydration, but other factors like changes in blood sugar and lack of sleep can make symptoms worse. 

If your hangover is making you feel dizzy, nauseous, and exhausted, ivee’s Hangover Relief treatment is perfect for you. The formula contains saline solution, which can help to restore your body’s fluid levels if a hangover has made you dehydrated.

Refreshment

If you’re feeling exhausted, you may be dealing with any of a wide array of physical issues – dehydration, low blood sugar, a poor diet, or other factors that can all sap you of your energy. 

ivee’s Refresh treatment is designed to give you an extra boost when fatigue is making it impossible to take on the day.

NAD+ Therapy

NAD+ is a powerful combination of amino acids that are thought to have anti-aging benefits. If you’re concerned about wrinkles, fine lines, and other sides of aging, NAD+ IV treatments are certainly worth looking into. 

ivee offers two NAD+ formulas – Neurogeneration and Optimal Aging

What’s In An IV Bag?

IV treatments typically contain key nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and electrolytes. In addition, a specific treatment may be formulated with specific ingredients designed to help your body conquer certain physical obstacles.

Based on your personal health concerns and lifestyle goals, you can find an IV treatment that is perfect for you. The main ingredients in an IV bag are typically mixed with saline solution.

This powerful hydrating agent is ideal for patients who are suffering from dehydration. It also serves as a vehicle to transport the nutrients in your IV treatment to your body as effectively as possible.

If you are unsure about which ivee formula is best for your specific needs, it can be helpful to read through the ingredients for each treatment.

In addition, each of ivee’s at-home IV treatments gets its name from the specific purpose that it serves. You can most likely easily choose the IV therapy session that will be best for you based on two key factors – the name of the treatment and its ingredients.

With our ivee membership, individuals can also receive one complimentary functional telemedicine consultation per quarter to help pinpoint the proper treatment and ingredients that will best fit their wellness needs.

Are There Any Risks?

Overall, at-home IV treatments are extremely safe, with minimal risk of injuries or side effects. The Registered Nurse administering your IV vitamin therapy session has been thoroughly trained to respond in the unlikely event of an emergency.

If you have not yet had your first IV treatment, you can rest assured knowing that the experience is comfortable, safe, and overseen by a medical professional.

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

In the hours following your IV vitamin therapy session, you will start to feel the benefits right away as the IV vitamin fluids replenish hydration and electrolytes. Most describe feeling energized and refreshed after treatment.

When Will My Treatment “Kick In?”

The effects of an IV treatment may typically set in as little as 30 minutes. While some patients experience noticeable changes to their energy levels and the severity of specific symptoms as they undergo treatment, the biggest physical changes typically come after the treatment is over.
