Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapies are becoming popular as a way to deliver high quality doses of vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream. This is a superior alternative to taking oral tablets, because it bypasses the digestive system, which can dilute vitamins or fail to absorb an optimum amount of nutrients. 

IV drips can be used to address a particular health concern, or to boost overall health and wellbeing. Here’s a look at the benefits of each one and how to choose a product that is right for you.

Vitamin H injections

Vitamin H, also known as vitamin B7 or biotin, helps the body to metabolise nutrients into energy and promotes the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails. Healthy people may get enough vitamin H from their regular diet, but they can help those who are suffering from fatigue or digestive disorders to regain vitality and wellbeing.

Iron drips

Iron drips are suitable for people who have an iron deficiency, which can be caused by a wide variety of reasons. These include iron deficiency anaemia, heavy menstrual bleeding, gastrointestinal disorders, pregnancy, chronic kidney disease, and major surgery. 

A lack of iron means that the body does not have enough red blood cells to transport oxygen around the body, and this can lead to fatigue and reduced athletic and mental performance. Many people cannot tolerate oral iron tablets or the digestive system fails to absorb them. Therefore an IV infusion can make a huge difference to energy levels and overall well being.

Vitamin C drops

Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system and to support good skin health. A balanced diet including plenty of fruits and vegetables can provide the right dose of vitamin C for healthy people. However, higher doses can be beneficial, especially for those with medical issues or who are looking to boost their immune system.

Vitamin C promotes wound healing, boosts energy levels, and may help the body to ward off infection and disease. 

NADH+

NAD+ drips are a popular way to increase energy levels and improve mental focus and concentration. They contain a range of B vitamins that can play a role in neurological health and the regulation of moods. This treatment may also be beneficial for those looking to boost athletic performance as it increases the amount of vital nutrients in the bloodstream.

Vitamin D3 booster

Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin that is produced when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It is vial to support bone health and to maintain a strong immune system. During the winter time, most people in the UK do not get enough vitamin D due to the shorter days and increased time spent indoors. 

The UK government recommends that all adults should take a vitamin D supplement during the autumn and winter months. An IV drip is the most effective way to ensure that the vitamin will reach the essential organs of the body.
