Intravenous, or IV, therapy is the infusion of liquid substance directly into a vein.
Intravenous therapy provides effective and quick correction of mineral, amino acid, and vitamin deficiency. IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, which could block the absorption of nutrients. Some products are only available or are more active in liquid form. Intravenous injection is an effective and easy form of medical product delivery. IV therapy is not for everyone; it is prescribed on an individual basis.
