How do Intravenous (IV) Therapy Drips Work?

What’s the science behind IV Therapy in Marbella

Intravenous (IV) fluid drips deliver a combination of saline solution, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes through a small catheter and tubing directly into the bloodstream.

The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body, because they are introduced directly into the circulation. The ingredients in individual IV formulas are specifically blended to address a variety of health needs.

During the treatment, the doctor or a nurse inserts an IV line into the patient’s vein. This IV line is attached to a bag of saline solution that contains treatment’s ingredients. Vit&Drip Center’s IV treatments are blended right in front of you, so you know exactly what goes into your body, the blend is freshly made with sterile products, and it can be personalized for you depending on doctor’s recommendation and your health goals.

The bag is then hung above the patient’s head. IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity carry fluid into the veins over time, as opposed to a syringe or other forced technique.

The duration of a single treatment varies from person to person, but tends to last between 45 – 50 minutes.

What’s in an IV treatment formula?

IV formulas contain a combination of ingredients designed to treat specific conditions or target specific health goals. Vit&Drip Center’s IV treatments contain essential fluids, minerals, vitamins, electrolytes and antioxidants. Each IV therapy treatment is designed to contain the optimal balance of nutrients to provide a wide range of health benefits.

Although the specific ingredients vary from treatment to treatment, all IV vitamin drips have two basic components:

· Saline solution: A sterile mixture of sodium chloride and water that hydrates the body and facilitates the delivery of medication and vitamins.

· Vitamins: Organic nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants that the body uses to maintain normal function, and which must be obtained from an outside source such as food, drink, or an IV.

In addition to these, some of Vit&Drip Center’s IV formulas contain medications which are diluted into the saline solution to help improve nausea or relieve pain.

If you can’t decide which treatment is best for your body, don’t worry. During each appointment, first, you consult with the doctor about your lifestyle and health goals you want to address, and based on that, the doctor recommends the best treatment for you.

Vit&Drip Center’s IV treatments can be fully customized to target all your body’s needs.
