How Can IV Therapy Help My Body?

How Can IV Therapy Help My Body?

When you picture someone getting an IV, it’s probably in a hospital setting. Hospitals use intravenous (IV) treatment because it’s such an effective way to give the person what they need — not just blood but also hydration or medication. Introducing a substance straight into the bloodstream means the body can use it right away. 

But you don’t have to wait for a hospital visit to get the fast, powerful benefits of an IV. At the SmartClinic Urgent Care offices in West Covina and Santa Clarita, California, our team offers IV therapy that we can tailor just for you to give your body what it needs.

This treatment can help with a broad range of issues that affect the body. Here’s what you need to know.

Why you might choose IV therapy

Understanding how it works

IV therapy is a little like ingesting a really robust multivitamin — but it has the power to work even more effectively. That’s because when you get nutrients from the foods you eat, they have to go through your digestive system in order for your body to collect and use them. The percentage of nutrition you absorb from food can range from 90% on the high end down to just 10%

With IV therapy, it’s different. This treatment gives our team a way to introduce what your body needs directly into your bloodstream. That way, your system can use it as effectively and quickly as possible. 

This treatment gives you a way to get more:

Nutrient deficiencies can lead to several maladies. The wide range of minerals, vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants we can administer with IV therapy helps boost your energy, your immune system, and your general health.
