Why get an I.V. instead of drinking water, eating well, and taking oral supplements? That’s because the intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids, electrolytes, medications, nutrients, and vitamins to the body. The IV fluid is absorbed directly and quickly into the bloodstream with 100% efficiency compared with approximately 20-50% for oral intake, such as supplements. That’s why I.V. fluid treatments are so commonly used in hospitals and emergency rooms. Now you can take advantage of RevitalizeMaui’s custom IV treatments that are specially formulated by our Medical Director – Emeka Okwuje, MD. Dr. Okwuje’s custom nutrient formulas are based on the top IV nutrition therapy protocols and are targeted for individuals seeking to optimize their health, energy, quality of life, and performance.
When we eat food or use oral supplements, we have to rely on them passing through our digestive systems, where their absorption by the body takes place. Unfortunately, the average person only absorbs about 20-40% of the vitamins and nutrients they ingest orally. Additionally, the effects of 1st-pass hepatic metabolism further decrease the bio-availability of the resultant nutrients. Unfortunately, a large number of people experience gut issues that further inhibit proper absorption. IV therapy bypasses the gut, taking out all the variables that can affect absorption and bioavailability, and allows the ingredients administered to be available for immediate use by your body.
Relying on oral supplements alone simply can’t deliver you the best results, especially because certain nutrients can never reach a high enough plasma concentration to see the desired benefits when taken this way. IV therapy allows you to sit back and relax as you head down the direct path to health by directly delivering the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids needed to protect and correct your health into your system.
