IV Infusions vs. Nutrient Injections
With everyone setting new health goals and resolutions it can be easy to get overwhelmed by all of the latest health crazes people are raving about. If you are looking to try something new, research and understanding exactly what you are getting into are extremely important. With IV infusion therapy and nutrient injections being some of our core offerings at KOI Wellbeing, we wanted to break down the difference between the two to give you a better understanding of what each treatment will help you with and what role they can play in accomplishing your health and wellness goals.
Let’s start with IV infusion therapy
Receiving vitamins via an IV infusion is very similar to receiving any other drugs from an IV or having blood drawn as far as the procedure goes. A needle will be inserted into your arm to administer the vitamins directly into your bloodstream. This procedure takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending on the infusion and the person. Each infusion is customized to the individual to help address the issues you are having and will help you start feeling better almost immediately. The key with IV infusions is that by receiving vitamins directly in your bloodstream your body is able to absorb more of the vitamins and it happens much more quickly than if you were taking supplements orally. IV infusions will help you get more of the good stuff in your body and working for your health faster.
Nutrient injections work in a similar way as they are still putting vitamins directly into your bloodstream but the injections are done intramuscularly, which means the shot is injected through muscle instead of veins. Nutrient injections are a quicker overall procedure than IVs and can be done without an appointment. This makes injections a great option for someone who needs a boost but doesn’t have as much time as an IV would take.
Both IV infusions and nutrient injections are helpful for people who are suffering from digestive issues or disorders and can help improve your body’s functionality in a very short period of time. Choosing which method is right for you depends on your preferences, what your health goals are, and what health issues you might be dealing with.
