How does IV drip therapy work?


When solutions are administered via IV, the ingredients are 100% bioavailable. Bioavailability is the measurement of the amount of the substance that the body retains.

We are able to bypass the digestive tract and allow the body to absorb these nutrients that are so crucial to health and wellness.
