What Is IV Vitamin And Nutrient Therapy?

IV Nutrient Therapy, or intravenous nutrient therapy, involves administering a combination of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) drip. This method allows for rapid absorption of nutrients, bypassing the digestive system. IV nutrient therapy is often used to address nutritional deficiencies, boost immune function, support energy levels, and aid in recovery from certain medical conditions or dehydration. The specific combination of nutrients can be tailored to individual needs and health concerns.

IV nutrient therapy can offer the following benefits:

Customized Formulations: IV nutrient solutions can be personalized to address individual nutritional needs, deficiencies, or health conditions.

Rapid Nutrient Absorption: IV therapy allows for direct delivery of nutrients into the bloodstream, ensuring quicker and more efficient absorption compared to oral supplements.

Enhanced Energy Levels: The direct infusion of vitamins and minerals can provide a quick energy boost, making IV nutrient therapy popular for addressing fatigue and promoting overall vitality.

Immune System Support: IV nutrient therapy is believed to support immune function by providing the body with essential nutrients necessary for optimal immune response.

Improved Athletic Performance and Recovery: Some individuals, including athletes, use IV nutrient therapy to enhance performance, support recovery, and replenish nutrients lost during intense physical activity.

Stress Reduction: Nutrient infusion may contribute to stress reduction and improved mood by supporting the nervous system and providing nutrients that play a role in mood regulation.

Hangover Relief: IV therapy is sometimes used for hangover relief by replenishing fluids and essential nutrients after excessive alcohol consumption.

Questions? We can help…

How does the process work?

If this is your first time receiving IV Vitamins at Metabolic Health Hub, book the ‘IV Nutrient Therapy Initial Consultation, Scripting and Infusion’ appointment. During this appointment, you will be asked about your health history and health goals. With this information, we will be able to recommend the best nutrients for you and your needs. The script that is generated at this appointment is valid for 12 months and is $65. This script is checked and approved by a Medical Doctor. You will also have your IV Nutrient Drip at this appointment and will be relaxing in our clinic for around 90mins.

If you have already visited us for your IV Nutrients and have a current script from us, you can continue to book the ‘IV Nutrient Therapy Infusion Session’ as often as you need. Our registered nurse and IV Vitamin specialist can recommend a schedule for you based on your personal goals and needs. Subsequent IV Nutrient Therapy sessions are also approximately 90 minutes.

Who can benefit from IV Nutrient Therapy?

IV Nutrient therapy is beneficial for anyone who is looking to balance vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Our full qualified practitioner will help you decide on the best nutrients for your needs. IV Nutrient Therapy can also support optimal hydration.

How are the Nutrients Delivered?

A small intravenous canula (drip) is placed into your a vein in your arm. This little tube is hollow, and allows us to slowly ‘drip’ the nutrients into your vein. We use the same process that hospitals use to give their patients a ‘drip’.

Does the cannula hurt?

The process does involve puncturing your skin with a small needle. Most people feel a ‘sting’ or sharp scratch when the cannula is inserted and a weak dull ache for a minute or two only.

What will I feel during my IV Nutrient Therapy?

Our clients tend to feel a sense of comfort and wellbeing, although some people do not feel any different at all whilst their drip is going in. This time is a great opportunity to shut your eyes and relax. You are welcome to being a book and use the time for some well earned R+R.

What will I feel after my IV Nutrient Therapy?

Some people feel a difference immediately, including more energy and less brain fog. Others find that they feel ‘better’ in general for days to weeks after the infusion, experiencing more stamina and less fatigue.

I'm not sure what Vitamins I need. Will you help me decide?

Absolutely. All IV Nutrient sessions include a health assessment to make sure IV Therapy is suitable and which vitamins you would most benefit from on the day.

How often should I get an IV Infusion?

This will depend on your particular situation and needs. Some people in periods of stress would benefit from infusions weekly, but most people find monthly infusions are perfect. We will chat with you and devise a schedule based on your health concerns and your particular needs.

What is included in the 'Scripting Fee'?

All our infusions are approved by a medical doctor. We submit a request on your behalf, outlining your basic health history for a doctor to double check. This script is then valid for 12 months and you can use it as often as clinically appropriate.

Are IV Drips good for hangovers?

Alcohol when consumed in large amounts can cause dehydration and increase your body’s needs for some vitamins. IV Nutrient therapy can support optimal hydration and replenishment of vitamins and minerals.

I'm not sure if I need IV Nutrient Therapy. Is there someone I can ask before booking an appointment?

Yes! Book a free of charge discovery call and our Clinical Nutritionist and IV Nutrient specialist will give you a call to discuss.
