IV vitamin infusion therapy administers minerals and nutrients intravenously through a small needle and into a vein. When the nutrients enter your body, they bypass your digestive system, allowing for a greater uptake by your cells. Studies show that the body absorbs 90% of nutrients administered intravenously, compared to just 50% of nutrients consumed orally.
At Family Care & Wellness, the team uses IV vitamin infusion therapy to treat a variety of conditions, including:
You might also benefit from IV vitamin infusion therapy if you develop an upper respiratory infection like the common cold or the seasonal flu.
IV infusion therapy commonly includes vitamins (Vitamins C, B1, B6, B12), minerals (calcium, magnesium), co-enzymes (NAD+), and antioxidants (glutathione).

Each of these vitamin fusions contains different ingredients designed to minimize uncomfortable symptoms, restore your energy levels, and encourage whole-body health.
Most infusions can be completed in less than 45 minutes , and you don’t need to do anything other than sit back and relax. Here are a few recommendations prior to your visit:
Hydrate. The infused vitamins and minerals are concentrated, and can be dehydrating at the cellular level. Your body will be more responsive if you are hydrated prior to your infusion.
Eat. A protein snack before or during your visit can help support your metabolism during your high-nutrient infusion.
Wear Comfortable Clothes. It would be wise to wear a short sleeve top or sleeves that can be rolled up above the elbow, along with comfortable pants and socks.
Bring a tablet, book, or music. Most infusions take approximately 30 minutes, but NAD+ may take up to 2 hours.
While receiving the infusion, you can read a book, take a nap, or play on your phone. There’s no recovery period, so when your infusion finishes, you can return to work or other normal activities right away.
IV vitamin infusion therapy is a cumulative treatment, meaning your results improve over time. Some people experience increased energy and improved mental clarity immediately following their first appointment. For others, results take days or even weeks.
To get the most out of treatment, follow your provider’s instructions carefully and attend each follow-up infusion as prescribed.
