Energy Boost IV Therapy vs Supplements

Want to learn more?

A plethora of factors can contribute to your immune system and energy levels taking a hit. IV therapy (intravenous therapy) and supplements have both proven to be effective in rebooting overall health, specifically in terms of an energy boost.

Wintertime brings less sunlight, cold weather, and depletes our bodies of delicious fruits loaded with antioxidants not in season. Many of us are left feeling like a shell of our former selves.

Looking at the chart below doesn’t seem like much help in deciding whether to take a daily supplement or get vitamin drip therapy. Although, the chart does make one thing crystal clear: both IV therapy and supplements can be used for a wide range of short-term and long-term conditions.

Let’s take a look at both vitamin infusions (IV drips) and supplements customarily used for an energy boost. This will help to learn and understand which one will work best for you.

Energy Boost IV Vitamin Therapy

  • Vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients are administered intravenously (directly into the bloodstream through a vein).
  • 5 grams of Vitamin C
  • Myers’ cocktail: magnesium, calcium, B-complex, vitamin C (1)
  • Fluids are not injected daily, but rather monthly or in a series of weekly segments every few months.
  • IV therapy effects can last up to three weeks.
  • Takes up more time than taking daily supplements, as a certified medical professional is required to administer it.

Supplements for Energy

  • Amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and herbs can be taken in pill, powder, or liquid form.
  • B vitamin blend
  • Amino acid and antioxidant blend
  • Zinc
  • Iron
  • Most all are taken daily. Some energy supplements need to be taken for a week or two so the nutrients can build up in your system (2).
  • Effects last as long as you are taken the supplement(s).
  • Supplements are extremely easy to take in your own home or office, as they are ingested with food and/or water.

IV Therapy and Supplements Near Me

Both IV therapy and supplements are great options for short-term as well as long term energy medications. Vitamin C is one of the most commonly used nutrients, both in IV fluids and as daily supplements due to its high antioxidant potential (3).

Sometimes, efforts at daily exercise and a good night’s sleep fall flat amidst travelling, vacation, cold and short days, work, family, and holidays. Occasionally, our bodies and energy levels might need a jolt, and that’s okay.
