The Future of Supplements – IV Therapy

The popularity of IV (intravenous) therapy has grown dramatically over the past few years, in particular in Hollywood, but in recent months the trend has trickled down to the rest of the population. Vitamin Drips are a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream. This process bypasses the digestive system, which can render some substances inactive due to poor gut health. “Why can’t I just take Oral vitamins” you’re probably thinking? Oral vitamins take time to digest, and you’re not guaranteed to receive all of them because of the digestive system. In other words if your digestive health isn’t up to scratch, chances are you’re only absorbing a fraction of what you are taking.

With IV Therapy your body is not burdened with processing unnecessary ingredients or converting synthetic compounds. By bypasses the gut, IV Therapy allows for direct delivery of nutrients at the cellular level. What you put in your body controls how your cells function at the cellular level, and when your cells are working properly, your organs are working properly, and when your organs are working properly and optimally, your overall health improves.

I never recommend any health products or services unless I’ve tried them for myself so I decided to see if Vitamin Drips lived up to the hype and headed down to the Elixir Clinic in Dubai for a test run. I had the VIP Elixir VitaDrip – a cocktail containing B-Complex (B1, B2), B5, B6, B12, Vitamin C, Glutathione, L-Carnitine, Magnesium, Selenium and Zinc. I was under the impression after the VitaDrip I would feel ready to run through walls but it was quite the opposite; I felt completely relaxed and quite drowsy. High doses of Vitamin C & Magnesium will drop your cortisol (stress hormone) so low you could sleep standing up, hence my feeling of complete relaxation. I went to bed early that night and slept like a hadn’t slept in a week. Normally I get between 5-7 hours sleep, that night I slept 9 undisturbed hours! That feeling the nurse described to me, of being ready to run through walls, was apparent when I woke up – boundless energy. I hit the gym and crushed an amazing workout

Most people are quite uncomfortable with the idea of willingly putting a needle into their vein without absolute necessity, but I firmly believe it is the future of supplements. I’ve spent time and money improving my digestive health so to properly absorb nutrients and minerals and have seen good results from supplements because of this, but nothing as rapid and as noticeable as IV Therapy. I can only imagine someone who’s health isn’t optimal must feel after a Vitamin infusion! I strongly recommend you try it for yourself!
