IV Vitamin Therapy Q & A

What is IV vitamin therapy?

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy effectively delivers minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream to boost your wellness and replenish deficiencies. Your body requires nutrients to function, and IV vitamin therapy provides you with some of these critical nutrients in one convenient therapy.

IV therapy allows you to receive a higher dose of nutrients than other methods of ingestion. For example, with an oral dose, your small intestine absorbs only a limited amount of the available nutrients. An IV infusion enhances the chance that the nutrients reach your cells quickly because they bypass the digestive tract and are present in higher concentrations.

What happens during the IV vitamin therapy?

During your office visit, Dr. Sarti inserts the IV and mixes all of the nutrients into the same solution. Dr. Sarti delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream using the IV. After the therapy, there’s no downtime, and you can return to your daily activities right away.

Which nutrients are administered via IV?

Depending on your health and requests, Dr. Sarti formulates a modified, customized IV cocktail that incorporates the specific nutrients your body needs. Standard options are also available.

A Myers’ cocktail is one of the most common nutrient mixes and named after the doctor who developed the first IV nutrition treatment. The Myers’ cocktail is a precise blend of calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and vitamin C that can be mixed at different doses.

Dr. Sarti also uses IV vitamin therapy to administer glutathione, an antioxidant that plays a robust role in your body's metabolic and cellular processes. It also detoxifies the liver and other organs.

A glutathione deficiency is associated with cell death, accelerated aging, cancer, stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and Parkinson’s.

What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

Because adequate amounts of minerals and vitamins are critical for proper body function, a deficiency can quickly become problematic. If you’d like a vitamin boost or if you have blood levels that show you’re deficient, IV vitamin therapy can restore sufficient levels.
