Why IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a medical method of delivering medications, fluids, and nutrition directly into the veins through a cannula. Most people find it effective because when taking fluids or medications bypasses the digestive system rather it goes directly to the bloodstream.

Also, some supplements, medications are best taken without the presence of fats, which is why pills are taken on empty stomachs or without food.
