Get Hooked! Re-energize and revive

IV Nutrition… It’s the craze among Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes, and is now available to the rest of us right here in Toronto.

Imagine getting hooked up to an IV in a calm, relaxed setting to replenish and restore energy and vitality and counter the toll of our daily stress.

Intravenous (IV) nutrition is exceptionally powerful because nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream via IV. This circumvents the potential loss of potency due to possible breakdown in the GI tract and poor absorption of some orally administered nutrients.

Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapies

Intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This is the most effective way of quickly improving nutritional status, energizing tired cells, and assisting in the natural detoxification pathways. Because gut absorption is by-passed, nutrients are delivered directly to the tissues in need with speed and high concentration similar to delivering high-octane gasoline to a race car engine.

In this sense, IV therapy can be used like drugs, delivering pharmacological doses of nutrients to increase metabolism and unblock impaired biological pathways by stimulating enzyme activity and “sparking” vital biochemical reactions with co-factors and minerals. And because we bypass the GI tract we are not limited to the low levels that are usually tolerated by the GI mucosa.  For example, when oral dosages of vitamin C are taken in a dosage higher than 3000 mg, the gut will not tolerated it very well. It will either cause an upset stomach or diarrhea. That dose is adequate for fighting the symptoms of a cold, but when you actually want to kill the virus itself or destroy cancer, only the IV dose, that can be given as high as 100,000 mg, will give the body what it needs to destroy these daunting enemies.
