If you or your family’s individualized care plan involves IV nutrition therapy (IVNT), you might be curious to know more about the treatment. Let’s talk about how IVNT works, how it helps, and who benefits from the treatment so you can arm yourself with knowledge.
IV Nutrition Therapy is a form of IV treatment that supplies the body with necessary vitamins and minerals to replenish deficiencies or aid in healing. The nutrients get delivered through a liquid solution from an IV line, PICC line, or port.
The IV drip delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream. This process bypasses digestion to provide quicker delivery to the cells that need it.
If you’re unable to get the right nutrients through your diet or your body has a difficult time absorbing vitamins and minerals, your doctor may recommend IV nutrition therapy.
