IV Vitamin Drips: The key to a healthier you.

IV Vitamin Drips: The key to a healthier you.

By Emily Ruse,  Deputy Registered Manager

IV Vitamin drips have gained a loyal following among celebrities who have been touting them for years as a way to boost energy, cure a cold and detox after a heavy weekend or holiday. But, how exactly does the treatment work and DOES it work?

Intravenous nutrition therapy has been used in mainstream medicine for over fifty years. There are enormous health benefits associated with IV Therapy. Studies reveal that over 90% of people are deficient in at least one or more nutrients and 50% of those people are already taking a multivitamin! Very few people realise that when you ingest vitamins by mouth, only 15% of the active nutrients may eventually find their way into your bloodstream. With Intravenous Nutrition (Vitamin Drips), the nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately to help the body begin healing itself. You get a much higher concentration of nutrients delivered directly to your body’s cells through intravenous therapy, therefore allowing your body to better absorb and utilise these nutrients.

We caught up with our Nurse Letitia, to find out more about Vitamin Drips and why everyone should be trying them…

What do IV Vitamin Drips do?

IV Vitamin Drips work to enhance your health and wellbeing by rebalancing the body’s natural vitamin levels and helping to cleanse it of toxins, boost the immune system, replenish energy levels and optimise your day-to-day wellbeing. “It is a procedure which is fast-acting and effective because it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, meaning that 100% of vitamins and nutrients are absorbed directly into the bloodstream,” Letitia tells us.

How does the process work?

“The process will start with a thorough consultation where the patient will fill in a health questionnaire, which addresses any previous surgeries or illnesses. Then, we will discuss aspects of the client’s health such as diet and exercise, we will talk about the clients’ goals and what they would like to achieve from the treatment and then I will recommend the Vitamin Drip which I feel will benefit them most. The actual treatment process itself doesn’t take long at all. IM Boosters take just seconds and IV Infusion Drips take 30-60 minutes. Many patients begin to feel the effects during the IV Therapy, which then continues over the following hours or days. It doesn’t take long to start feeling refreshed, re-energised, and revitalised.”

Does it work?

All of our Vitamin Drips are developed by IntraVita, who is a leading company within the industry. They have all been thoroughly researched and developed by a team of leading medical doctors, naturopathic doctors and nutritionists.

“Our clients at rtwskin come to us to keep themselves looking good and age well, however, it’s important that we don’t forget to keep ourselves healthy and well on the inside too. This will reflect in our appearance.”

“All products have been scientifically tested and clinically proven to work and produce results. By balancing vitamin and nutrient levels under expert care and advice, our bodies can be restored to peak fitness and maximum energy performance.

Is it safe?

“All of our IV Vitamin infusions are performed in a safe and sterile environment, by myself, an experienced medical professional. We use high-quality ingredients in all of our Vitamin Infusions to minimise the risk of allergic reaction and side effects. For anyone with a needle phobia, we can help ease this by placing numbing cream on the area to minimise any phobias to needle insertions.”
