Dropping by for an IV drip
IV drip, short for intravenous drip, is a medical procedure that administers fluids directly to the patient’s bloodstream. It is widely used by different personalities around the world–– from athletes, celebrities, influencers, to people who just want to cure a hangover–– for its immediate and noticeably effective results.
One might think that a person sitting beside a hanging plastic bag of fluids connected to their arm through a catheter and a needle is sick. That is because IV therapy was invented to help patients recover from illnesses during the early 1800s and its ubiquitous presence today in every hospital is a testament to its efficiency in delivering necessary vitamins and minerals to the body.
IV drip therapy came into popularity when Dr. John Myers invented what he called “cocktail” in the 1960s. It consists of vitamins B and C, magnesium sulphate, calcium gluconate, and selenium to manage certain conditions such as asthma and allergies.
How does IV drip work?
Intravenous comes from two words: “Intra-” meaning inside and “venous” meaning veins. IV drip shoots the essential nutrients straight to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. Normally, the vitamins we intake go to our tummies where they are digested before they enter the bloodstream. Not only does this process take time, but it also reduces the amount of vitamins that our bodies are meant to absorb.
Meanwhile, vitamins and minerals infused via IV drip do not enter the digestive tract, allowing the body to absorb all of them at a faster rate.
Types of IV drip
There are different types of IV drip infusions that you can choose from, depending on your needs. It can be for immune boost, detox, skin glow, anti-stress, hydration, and more.
