Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream used to correct intra-cellular nutrient deficiencies. Digestive problems can and do result in multiple vitamin and nutrient deficiencies and these problems are more common in those that are already ill and in the aged. With limitation in the digestive processes being present in increasingly large numbers of patient need for IV Nutritional Therapy. Oral intake of such high doses is simply not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process. Cells can absorb more nutrients in IV form in a one treatment compared to oral intake.
