Multivitamin supplementation has only been medically recommended in cases of obvious deficiency. This can sometimes leave people waiting until obvious physical symptoms before recognizing a vitamin deficiency. With environmental and social factors such as poor diet, busy lifestyles, processed foods, air pollution, and lack of exercise it has become increasingly difficult to stay healthy and vitamin efficient. Increasing evidence suggests multivitamins are an essential extension to healthy eating, further validating optimal health requires some form of multivitamin supplementation.
“Its difficult to get the nutrients our bodies need from diet alone, multivitamin therapy is a great way to fill those gaps”
Multivitamins are generally not taken as a treatment but rather used to assist in the body’s overall general health and wellness. Multivitamin supplementation is used as the vehicle to ensure your body receives everything it needs for optimal functionality.
What is the best method for vitamin absorption?
The most common form of multivitamin supplementation is through the oral route, although when taken orally, multivitamins are not fully absorbed by the digestive tract. Many people do not realize they are only getting a small fraction of the vitamins and minerals listed when taking oral multivitamin supplements. IV multivitamins eliminate the risk of malabsorption, ensuring your body receives 100% of the vitamins directly into the body’s blood stream. This makes IV multivitamin infusions arguably the most efficient way of vitamin delivery.
