Getting that extra boost to get through the day can work wonders for your overall health. IV vitamins offer a wide variety of benefits that contribute to your health, appetite, sleep, and mood cycles. Your medical professional can help you determine which vitamin boosters best benefit your lifestyle.

Let’s look at some of the different IV vitamin boosters, their benefits, and how long they stay in your system.

What Are IV Vitamins?

IV vitamin therapy allows you to spend more feeling your best and getting all the necessary nutrition and that extra boost you may need throughout the day. Your nutrients, vitamins, and minerals are provided in a convenient IV form to help keep you on the move.

Glutathione is an antioxidant naturally produced inside your body, formed by proteins and amino acids like cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. You may need a boost if your body isn’t producing enough glutathione. Glutathione helps your body hydrate, detoxify, and fight free radicals. 

That’s where a Glutathione Push infusion comes in—some benefits include:

  • Hydrating the body
  • Detoxifies the body and vital organs
  • Fighting free radicals

Lasting Effect of IV Vitamins

Now that you know some of the different IV vitamin types and their benefits, you may be wondering how long they stick around in your system. 

The answer is that IV vitamins will stay in your system until your body has metabolized the contents, and this process can last for about 2 to 3 weeks. With nutrients not having to pass through your digestive system, vitamin IVs allow your body to absorb nutrients more quickly and effectively. 

A healthy lifestyle magnifies the effects of vitamin IVs. They differ from vitamin tablets or vitamins in food because vitamin IVs provide 100 percent absorption. 

Along with quick absorption and a longer period of effectiveness, vitamin IVs provide health benefits such as: 

  • A better overall mood
  • An improved immune system
  • Reducing stress
  • A boost in energy
  • Clearer, more beautiful skin

The benefits of IV vitamin therapy can vary from person to person, and speaking with your medical professional can help them prepare a personalized plan just for you.

Prioritizing Your Health

IV vitamin therapy is all about productivity and maximizing your time. Getting your essential nutrients and vitamins can increase your productivity and energy levels to maximize your day.

Book an appointment with your medical professional to learn more about IV vitamin therapy and prioritize your health.
