How many times should you get vitamin IV therapy to get the benefits you are looking for?
IV hydration therapy every week would be amazing for your skin, overall health, and joints. More than three times a week is not recommended by most IV therapy clinics due to the increased vitamin intake you receive compared to oral vitamins.
Every other week
This is probably the most ideal time period for most people. The fluids received during IV therapy last a few hours, but the vitamins can last days to weeks in your body. Every other week allows your body to get the complete recommendation of vitamins.
Once a month
Once a month is a good goal for most people. The day you might get your nails or hair done, you can also get your IV vitamin therapy and feel completely pampered and ready to go. If you are deficient in any vitamins after a week or more of not eating the best, a monthly IV vitamin drip can help you ‘reset.’
If you have a party, athletic event, or are trying to overcome an illness, vitamin IV therapy can also help give you the little extra boost you need during this time. Our infusion nurse can help you choose the best infusion package for you or your group.
Vitamin Deficiency Tests
You can get blood tests completed to see which vitamins you are low in. There are also at-home test kits that can be used to send a sample in and get results back within a few days. These tests give you a clear picture of your vitamin status and what you could supplement with to balance your health.
The top vitamin deficiencies in the United States vary by race, but the most common vitamin deficiencies are vitamin B6, iron, vitamin D, and vitamin C. A lot of foods in the United States are now fortified with vitamins and minerals to help alleviate these deficiencies, but many people still struggle to reach their recommended intake.
Most vitamins won’t really hurt if taken in excess, they are flushed out of your body in the bathroom. However, there are a few vitamins known as fat-soluble vitamins that should not be taken excessively. These are vitamins A, D, E, and K. Those vitamins are stored in the body longer and can become toxic at high levels.
