Various establishments offering intravenous infusions of vitamins as a solution for everything from hangovers to cancer have cropped up in recent years, despite a total lack of any clinical evidence to suggest that these infusions work. To the contrary, it is not even entirely clear whether or not negative impacts could potentially result from bypassing the digestive system in this fashion. Intravenous Nutrition is intended for use with patients who are unable to eat, and require careful monitoring and regulation by healthcare professionals to avoid potentially dangerous overdoses.
- There haven’t been any studies that show that IV vitamin therapy offers any benefits.
- Clinics that use the therapy claim that it increases your energy levels, strengthens your immune system, and reduces stress.
- The type of the treatment and the amount needs to be carefully monitored.
“Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a method of administering vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream.”
