What are IV Vitamin Drips?

IV Vitamin Drips or IV Vitamin Infusions are therapies which may include the use of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, administered directly into your bloodstream. IV is short for intravenous which indicates that the therapy is administered into your vein. The soluble solution is designed to be easily absorbed into your bloodstream so that your body has access to 100% of the nutrients.

By providing your body with the nutrients it needs to perform, you may be able to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. This may result in faster physical recovery, performing at peak physical fitness, improved immune and brain function, reduced stress and other benefits.

On the other hand, your digestive system may only be able to absorb a fraction of  the nutrients from the food and drinks that you consume. That’s because it can be affected by age, genetic, lifestyle and other factors. Furthermore, an IV Vitamin Drip may just administer a single type of vitamin or a cocktail of different nutrients designed to improve your health and wellbeing.

Intravenous Vitamins And Minerals Drips Sydney

We need to top up our water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins B and C every day. IV Vitamin Drips may be able to help ensure that you are getting the right nutrients to perform at your peak! Living in Sydney can be busy. Combine this with unhealthy lifestyle factors and your body can really start to feel sluggish, tired or run-down. Not getting enough exercise, a sedentary work-life, stress, smoking and consuming too much alcohol, unhealthy food and drinks are just a few hurdles that can slow down your body.

As a result, Intravenous (or IV) Vitamin Drips may be a great way for the busy people of Sydney to keep healthy. Whilst these vitamins can be gained from common foods such as meat, grains, fruits and vegetables, the majority of us don’t always absorb enough of these on a daily basis.

Conditions that affect our general wellbeing and ability to absorb nutrients:

  • Unbalanced diet
  • Stress
  • Sedentary work-life
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol or nicotine
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immunity problems, respiratory problems

IV Vitamin Drip practical example:
Vitamin C Drips

The body needs vitamin C to recover from:

  • Inflammation,
  • Thrombosis and
  • Ischaemic damage.

Vitamin C plays a profound role in wound healing, the normal functioning of our body tissues as well as our immunity. Illness creates the need for more nutrients.

​Often the amount of nutrients absorbed through the gut is less than ideal at 20-30% or less if you have digestive issues that lead to malabsorption.

​Intravenous (IV) Infusions (commonly known as an “IV drips”) deliver the nutrients direct to your tissues via your vein. This is combined with fluids (for hydration).

Intravenous Chelation Therapy

Intravenous Chelation Therapy is considered an “alternative medicine” with the purpose of eliminating toxins and “heavy metals” from the body.

Chela – is derived from the Greek language. It means a “claw”.

Chelation therapy refers to the use of an agent that “binds” to a substance with a “claw like” action. In this context it is commonly used for heavy metal detoxification as IV EDTA or IV DMPS binds irreversibly to its respective heavy metal(s). Vitamin C, certain antioxidants (such as glutathione), trace elements, and substances such as IV DMPS or IV EDTA have been used as chelating agents.

How do heavy metals build up?

It is surprising how someone can accumulate heavy metals. We are exposed to a variety of toxins in our day to day lives.  We can be exposed to mercury from eating tuna or king fish daily, eating foods produced in foreign countries, or living in a highly populated suburb where lead has accumulated from the previous use of leaded fuels. It is possible you may have been exposed to a toxic load of heavy metals to a certain degree.

Heavy Metal Toxicity

The gold standard for detecting heavy metal toxicity is to infuse IV DMPS (2,3-Dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid) and normal saline through an IV Infusion or “IV drip”. A sample of urine collected after this is sent to a lab and the heavy metals are quantified. IV DMPS tends to push most heavy metals out of our system, as it has a high affinity for Mercury (Hg) and other heavy metals.

Intravenous Chelation Therapy involves administering a chemical solution known as EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) or DMPS directly into the body though an IV Infusion into the bloodstream so it can bind with excess metals or in the case of EDTA which indirectly removes calcium from arteries. Once IV EDTA or IV DMPS binds with these metals in the body, it is then eliminated through the liver and the gut.

EDTA has been used to treat diseased arteries

​EDTA was initially used to treat lead toxicity, one of the side effects noted was a “drop” in blood pressure. IV EDTA was used as a way to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) until pharmaceutical agents or medications were discovered and found to be effective.

​Hence its use for its ability to remodel arterial wall tone.
