The medical professionals from Total Vitality Medical Group recognize that the hectic pace of daily life, consumption of unhealthy foods and exposure to environmental toxins make the traditional way of maintaining balance in the body- a difficult goal to sustain. The harsh reality is that our bodies’ cells break down each day as we age, and the stresses of the life we lead can speed this process.
People need help because the body does not regenerate restorative cells as we age, and it is possible for that help to be found in the form of Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy. This IV therapy acts as a helping hand when specific conditions are present and a person must bounce back quickly.
Prior to IV introduction of vitamins becoming a possibility for individuals who were interested in combating inflammation, decreased immunity and the onset of chronic diseases associated with aging; the “go-to” treatment option was oral vitamin supplements. This is a problem because vitamin pills need to enter the digestive system and follow this path.
- The multivitamin is swallowed whole
- The multivitamin passes down the esophagus and into the stomach
- The acidic environment in the stomach begins to break the multivitamin
- Enzymes break the multivitamin down into smaller pieces and then into amino acids
- The amino acids are absorbed by small intestine and passed into the blood
- The amino acids then reach the liver, where they undergo a detoxification process.
The process of assimilating vitamins and minerals through digestion is a long and arduous, it can become interrupted at multiple points along the path. Intravenous vitamin therapy from the medical professionals at Total Vitality Medical Group allows all nutrients to bypass the digestive system, allowing them to be 100% absorbed.
