Why Intravenous Vitamins Are Better

Wednesday, September 14th 2022


Many people take vitamins on daily basis, some are in a pill form, some are in capsules and some are as gummies. The main disadvantage with oral supplements is that it takes a long time for the vitamins to reach needed levels in the organism and it is difficult for many nutrients to survive digestive process.


Intravenous vitamins are delivered directly into the bloodstream at high concentrations, so you reach potential health benefits and hydration much faster than with oral supplements. The vitamins, minerals and fluid that are in excess, which your body doesn't need will be excreted in urine. The procedure is quick. It takes 35-40 minutes, during which you recline comfortably and can be on your phone or read a book. Once the IV therapy is completed you can return to regular daily activities. Minor soreness at the IV site can occur, but resolves quickly. IV vitamins can be repeated weekly or biweekly, 4-6 sessions depending on your body needs.

Although most people can benefit from intravenous supplementation, there are some limitations in who can get the procedure.
Pregnant women already have an increase in blood volume and their heart and kidneys are working overtime. So if you are pregnant you will have to take oral supplements approved by your medical provider instead of intravenous vitamins which can overload your system with fluid and potentially increase blood pressure and force your cardiovascular system to work harder.

  • If you have a kidney disease, your body is struggling to filter out minerals and fluid which can increase to toxic level. The minerals have to be carefully monitored by your medical provider to avoid dangerous levels that can cause to for example cardiac arrhythmias.
  • If you have high blood pressure, additional fluid can increase it and your heart will be forced to work harder that is why intravenous fluids with vitamins are a contraindication.
  • Allergy to particular supplements or minerals are rare as most people have them, but if you can't process certain elements make sure to let those administering intravenous supplementation know to avoid dangerous consequences.
  • Always provide a full list of any medications or supplements you are already taking to avoid undesirable interaction with IV supplements.
  • If you have CHF (congestive heart failure) then intravenous fluids can overload your pulmonary and cardiovascular system and result in undesirable and potential dangerous consequences. That is why patients with CHS should avoid intravenous fluids without careful hospital monitoring.
