What To Know About IV Vitamin Therapy


You may have heard about IV Vitamin Therapy from the buzz it’s made in celebrity circles and the media. If you want to know about IV Vitamin Therapy, there is no better place to start than with a doctor trained in administering intravenous vitamin drips. Dr. Marilyn Richardson of Hormone, Hair & Vein Center is your resident medical expert on IV vitamin therapy. If you live in the Mission, KS, area call Hormone, Hair & Vein Center to learn more about IV vitamin drips and to schedule a therapy appointment.

What is IV Vitamin Therapy?

An intravenous vitamin drip is a solution of natural vitamins and minerals administered into the bloodstream to supplement your body’s nutritional health. This restorative therapy can rejuvenate your body by replenishing the vitamins you’re sorely lacking. Even if you are already in good health, IV vitamin therapy can help restore your energy and make you feel recharged. It can also help rehabilitate the missing nutrition those with chronic illnesses may be experiencing.

The most common formula used in IV vitamin therapy is Meyer’s cocktail, a blend of nutrients including:

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B-5
  • Vitamin B-6
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin B complex 100
  • Vitamin C
  • Glutathione
  • Zinc
  • Lipoic acid
  • Chromium

These vitamins and minerals stimulate your body to increase your metabolism, strengthen your energy, and boost cell regeneration. The ingredients are mixed with sterile water and administered through an IV bag over a 15 to 90-minute session. Your Mission, KS, hormone endocrinologist at Hormone, Hair & Vein Center can also curate specific nutrient blends to meet the needs of your body.

The vitamins in the IV drip interact directly with your bloodstream to restore the whole body. Whereas oral vitamin supplements are slowed down by the digestive system, IV vitamin therapy works rapidly because it is carried through your circulatory system.

What are the Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy?

Intravenous vitamin therapy can benefit the nutritional health of your body. Often, we do not get all the proper nutrients our body needs because of the diets we have or due to other illnesses we carry. Those with chronic pain, diabetes, and fibromyalgia have noted how this therapy can provide relief. Other health problems that can be improved with IV vitamin therapy include the common cold, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, chronic muscle spasms, and Asthma. Call your doctor to find out how vitamin therapy can be useful for you.
