Here’s why everyone is talking about IV Nutrition

Getting our daily amount of vitamins is extremely difficult especially in today’s society. Many of us fall into the unforgiving category of caffeine dependence and overconsumption. It’s not the caffeine or coffee that is necessarily the problem, it is the health implications that follow.

Now many of you have probably heard coffee is good for you. And I’m not going to have that debate in this blog. But what I do know is that coffee that comes with antioxidants that are shown to improve health also comes with negative consequences such as nutrient depletion and dehydration. Is the answer to cutting out your morning coffee? No. Why would we take away the things in life that make us happy?

The solution is making sure that you are taking care of your body. IV nutrition offers a magnitude of benefits ranging from hydration to nutrient replenishment. I think you would be shocked to realize how many people are walking around with nutrient deficiencies. Well just think about it…Most people don’t have time to eat and when they do they reach for something that is quick, easy and convenient. Unfortunately healthy options don’t usually fall into that quick, easy and convenient category.

IV Nutrition Therapy

IV Nutrition therapy works through bypassing the digestive tract. Some of you are likely wondering why that is a benefit. The digestive tract is responsible for absorption of vital vitamins, minerals and nutrients. If anything is off in the digestive tract, stomach acid levels, Hy. pylori, gut bacteria (positive balance), ulceration etc. it impacts the ability of the digestive tract to absorb them. Most people have underlying gut conditions like leaky gut, sibo and candida and have no idea that their ability to digest and absorb nutrients is compromised. This is the classic case of someone who takes supplements but feels no benefit from them.

Therefore intravenous therapy bypasses digestion and goes straight into the bloodstream and then into the tissues. This process is faster, takes less energy and ensures that the nutrients you are getting are going into the body.

So is it just hype or is there actual benefit?

Nutrient deficiencies are leading cause of chronic illness and mental health conditions. Don’t believe? Try the Walsh Protocol offered here at McDowall
