IV Vitamin Therapy delivers healthy, safe doses of nutrients directly into your circulatory system using a drip or injection
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy may assist in giving the body a boost in times of high stress or sickness. It also supports a sluggish immune system and promotes general well-being. Through IV therapy, vitamins and minerals are put directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and improving absorption into the cells. Some of the vitamins can also be administered intramuscularly by an injection.

HOW DO IV VITAMINS WORK AS AN IMMUNE SUPPORT?
IV vitamin C, fluids and immune strengthening vitamins of Zinc and combined B-vitamins work together to support your body and enhance its immune response, enabling you to more effectively fight off the common cold and/or support your return to health.
IV Vitamin Infusion therapy enables this process through the dissemination of vitamins and hydrating saline fluids into the bloodstream, where the vitamins are more readily available for your body to put them to work to boost your body’s immune function. Vitamin C, Zinc and B-vitamins work together to deliver the building blocks to support a healthy immune system, increase energy and cell production, whilst also promoting balance in your nervous and digestive systems.

A GP prescription is required for administration of IV Iron. We prefer to use Venofer due to its very high safety profile.
Iron is an essential mineral that the body needs for a variety of vital processes in the body. Iron is used by the body to create haemoglobin, which is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body. Iron preserves and supports the functions of energy and focus, a healthy immune system, gastrointestinal processes and even the regulation of body temperature.
Often the benefits of iron go unnoticed, until there is a deficiency, which may develop into anaemia. Iron deficiency can cause fatigue, heart palpitations, pale skin, infections, dizziness and feelings of coldness.
As a vital component of the processes within the body, if you are experiencing any symptoms, it is important to seek support from a GP.
