IV Vitamin Therapy Service in South Carolina

About IV Vitamin Infusion

Merge Medical Center uses Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Infusion by introducing vitamin and nutrient-rich cocktails into the bloodstream. These nutrients are delivered to the cells that need them the most. Intravenous Vitamin Therapy has been practiced since the early 1930s and was even more popularized in the 1980s by a Physician from Baltimore named John Myers

He developed the “Myer's cocktail,” consisting of a solution of vitamins and minerals. It contains calcium, magnesium, B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B9, B12, and vitamin C. Vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. These are essential to maintain internal cell health, a glowing appearance, a strong immune system, and prevent disease.

Many people believe that we can receive everything necessary for our health through the food that we eat. For the nutrients to be fully absorbed into the body, they must first surpass the stomach, the liver, and the intestines. After this digestive process, researchers have found that we only absorb barely 8% of the nutrients from digested food. People with slow, sluggish digestive symptoms or malabsorption conditions are expected to absorb even less of that amount.

To add to the issue, patients with compromised immune systems may need even more than the maximum nutrients that one food may provide. Intravenous Vitamin Therapy is beneficial through its bypass of the digestion process, providing quick and effective therapy.

Why IV Vitamin Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. It allows the nutrients to flood your body and nourish itself at the cellular level. By using this method, we can safely deliver larger doses that would not otherwise be tolerated orally.

We’ve taken a traditional medical treatment and given it a modern twist.

Fewer side effects

Intravenous vitamin therapy bypasses the stomach and intestines. It means no upset stomach or intestinal problems like cramps, nausea, or diarrhea. It sometimes results from taking high doses of certain vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin C and magnesium which is good for sleep. It allows for high-dose therapy for effective treatment outcomes.

Why Oral Pills Cannot Compete with IV?

Research has shown that to be pharmacologically active, and one must achieve specific blood or tissue concentrations of certain nutrients. Vitamin C is a good example of such a nutrient. Numerous studies show high concentrations of Vitamin C are required in the serum and intracellular fluid before it can exert its beneficial effects. These high concentrations cannot be achieved by taking the nutrients orally. The bulk of vitamins and minerals swallowed in pill or liquid form is excreted, with very little absorbed into the bloodstream. Complicating this further is that many patients have conditions that impair their intestinal absorption in the first place. Finally, as noted above, many patients cannot tolerate high doses of certain vitamins and minerals because these upset their stomachs or cause loose stools. Only intravenous vitamin therapy can directly deliver pharmacologically effective doses of the required nutrients.

Fight the effects of Aging

As we age, we become more nutritionally deficient. Later, this can damage your DNA – damage that can lead to premature aging, chronic disease, cancer, and early death. IV nutrition therapy presents a powerful way to help the body at a cellular level to be more efficient and repair itself from the toxic environment we live in. Therapies that help repair the damages we encounter are called regenerative medicine. I.V. nutrition therapy is the cornerstone of regenerative medicine.

Treatment Duration

I.V. therapies usually last from 30 minutes to one hour per session. Depending on the specific protocol being administered, some may last up to two hours. Our practitioners determine the number of sessions and the nutrient blend mixed in the IV at Merge Medical Center to determine a custom plan. The average is one weekly session for 4-6 weeks
