WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN IV DRIP, IV PUSH AND A BOOSTER?
IV is an abbreviation for “intra-venous” fluids which come in a bag and dripped into a patient. To give an IV Drip, a short, small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein. IV Drips consist of 500-1000 ml of fluid with a mixture of vitamins. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream. IV Drips usually take 45-60 min to infuse. An IV Push is similar to IV Drips in that vitamins are infused directly into the bloodstream via a plastic catheter that is inserted into the vein. IV Pushes concentrate more on high dose vitamins with minimal fluid hydration and take about 10-15 min to administer. A Vitamin Booster is a quick 10-second injection that delivers vitamins intramuscularly. There is no IV access required with vitamin boosters. The dosages of vitamins also differ since the rate of absorption is different with an IV going directly into the bloodstream, and a booster going into the muscle, which allows a smaller amount of volume of vitamins to be injected.
HOW DOES IV VITAMIN THERAPY WORK?

IV nutrient therapy may be more effective for correcting vitamin and nutrient deficits inside cells, where they are needed. The ability to flood nutrients inside the cells allows for 100 % bioavailability and in this capacity the improvement may be cumulative in the ability to improve illness.
