IV Therapy

Your body requires a certain daily intake of nutrients to maintain normal function. While the exact level varies from person to person, any of us may find that the demands of everyday life make it difficult to ingest adequate amounts of these nutrients. We cannot look our best, perform our best or feel our best if we’re not giving our body the fuel it needs to operate properly.

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy can improve your physical and mental wellness by rehydrating your body and replenishing nutrient deficiencies. Find out whether Kaya Cosmedica’s IV therapy is right for you by requesting an appointment.

What Is IV Vitamin Therapy?

IV vitamin therapy is an efficient method of delivering hydration, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream. It has been used in integrative medicine since 1968 to treat a range of conditions, including low energy levels, chronic fatigue, poor immune function, slow metabolism, stress, jet lag and post-operative recovery.

How Does IV Therapy Work?

Unlike oral supplements, nutrients delivered intravenously bypass your digestive system. They travel straight into your bloodstream, so their effects are felt more rapidly. IV drips are also more “bioavailable” than oral supplements, which means your body can absorb and use more of the nutrients.

Some people have sluggish digestion or a digestive disorder that impairs nutrient absorption. For these individuals, IV therapy can help address deficiencies to ensure the body stays in top form.

What Vitamins Are in the Formula?

The formula used at Kaya Cosmedica consists of high doses of magnesium, vitamin C, a complex of B vitamins, zinc and glutathione. These ingredients have been carefully chosen for their potent and synergistic effects.

  • Magnesium (Mg) — a mineral that helps maintain muscle tissue, regulate heart activity, support immune and nerve function, and enhance energy metabolism
  • Glutathione — a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage, assists the immune system, detoxifies and enhances the function of other antioxidants
  • Vitamin C — a potent antioxidant that benefits the immune system, contributes to wound healing and helps maintains healthy skin by supporting collagen production
  • Zinc (Zn) — an important trace element involved in over 100 enzymatic reactions, including those involved in energy production and immunity
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine) — a key nutrient for energy metabolism and proper functioning of the nervous and cardiac systems; often depleted with alcohol consumption
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) — a vitamin that helps break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates to maintain the body’s energy supply
  • Vitamin B3 (niacin) — a vitamin that may help lower cholesterol, improve cardiovascular system health and boost brain function
  • Vitamin B5 (dexpanthenol) — a vitamin with an essential role in the synthesis of coenzyme A, a critical part of energy production
  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) — a vitamin involved in protein metabolism, skin health, gut function, mood and the synthesis of blood cells
  • Vitamin B9 (folic acid) — a vitamin used in numerous body processes, including DNA synthesis and blood cell formation; also essential for cognitive function and mood
  • Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) — a vitamin that contributes to energy production, memory, mood, nervous system function, metabolism and blood cell formation

Is IV Therapy Suitable for Me?

Even when eating well and exercising regularly, our bodies may not have all the nutrients needed to remain at peak performance. Nearly anyone in good physical and mental health may notice benefits from vitamin infusions. These treatments should be considered a complement to an already-healthy lifestyle — they are not a substitute for taking care of yourself with diet, exercise, hydration, sleep, stress management and other daily actions that promote your health and well-being.

What Does an IV Therapy Treatment Involve?

IV vitamin therapy is a straightforward, nearly painless treatment. You’ll make yourself comfortable and Dr Khinda will insert an IV catheter into a vein in your arm. Most people feel only a slight pinch when the needle pierces the skin. The remainder of the treatment is comfortable, so you can relax while the formula slowly drips from the bag into your bloodstream through the IV line.

A session usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, and you’ll be able to continue your day immediately afterwards. Clients typically report no significant side effects during or after IV therapy.

When Can I Expect Results and How Long Will They Last?

Vitamin drips require no downtime and start working almost immediately. Many people quickly notice an increase in their energy levels and sense of well-being. But even if you don’t “feel” a difference, your body is still reaping the benefits.

IV treatment frequency should be tailored to your body’s needs. The effects can last for up to a few days, depending on various factors unique to you and your lifestyle. Dr Khinda will assist you in creating a treatment schedule that aligns with your wellness goals.
