YOU ARE WHAT YOUR BODY ABSORBS

You may have heard the saying ‘you are what you eat’, but this is only partially true. In reality, you are what you ABSORB.

The food we eat travels through our digestive system and nutrients get absorbed as the food is broken down. These nutrients are then stored and used as energy. Unfortunately, even if we’re eating nutritious foods, it doesn’t mean the body is always absorbing the nutrients in the food. Gastrointestinal issues, diet, and certain illnesses or medications are all factors that can affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients optimally.

For people who aren’t fully absorbing nutrients from food or oral supplements, IV vitamin therapy may be a good option. A vitamin drip therapy works by directly feeding vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream. When IV vitamins and minerals are added straight into the bloodstream, these nutrients are instantly available for use. What this means is that the intravenous nutrients do not have to wait to be filtered through the digestive system and liver.
