Vitamin Absorption: IV Infusion vs. Oral Intake

Modern medicine has forever preached that diet and exercise are vital to overall health and wellness. It is true that these things are imperative, but unfortunately for many, they have proven to not be enough. Taking daily vitamins and supplements will help get you one step closer to optimal health. However, your health conditions; disruptions in gut health such as bloating, constipation, and heartburn; and the typical American diet can interrupt your body's ability to properly absorb these nutrients. In addition, anything taken orally goes through your body's rigorous filtration process in its attempt to protect you. This natural process consequently robs you of the full benefit you would expect from your dedicated nutrient regimen.

On the other hand, fueling your body and cells with intravenous vitamins and supplements creates high plasma levels, allowing your cells to soak up these nutritional elements as they enter your bloodstream. The absorption of these nutrients enables peak performance for the life of the cell, which can vary from days to months. Moreover, making micronutrients immediately available to your cells enhances the body's natural processes that resist cellular dysfunction, which is at the core of aging, illness, and disease.

At The Vital Elements, we step off the path of traditional medicine, which waits to intervene until illness and disease arise, and forge a new path that pursues wellness. We look forward to serving you and encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have about intravenous nutritional therapy.
