Why Is IV Nutrition Important to Me?
Subscribe for Updates

person getting nutritional ivBy now we have all heard about IV nutrition “Bars” popping up here and there. Many of you have seen various ones come and go, most of you likely wonder if they really provide any value and some of you already recognize just how profoundly and dramatically the right IV or IVs can improve your health and quality of life.

Research shows 25% of Americans are significantly malnourished if they have poor digestion and malabsorption from GI conditions or disease. 75% of people who eat the Standard American Diet (SAD) have 1 or more micronutrient deficiencies. And even organically grown food no longer has the nutrient density it once had because our water supply is contaminated with glyphosate (Round-Up), which leaches minerals from the soil and plants, and as CO2 levels increase plants grow faster so absorb fewer nutrients.

The more overweight you are, the greater the likelihood you have multiple micronutrient deficiencies. Malnutrition is the greatest contributor to the 10 most common chronic diseases and the main mediators of inflammation and oxidative stress. If you carry a GI diagnosis or any of the 10 most common chronic diseases (i.e., the 10 most common causes of death), you are malnourished. And surgical patients with malnutrition are 2 – 3 times more likely to have minor & major complications with an increased length of hospitalization of up to 90%.

IV nutrition is an effective way to improve your nutritional status along with diet if you recognize yourself in any of the above situations. At Vital Solutions IV Nutrition (VSIVN) we can customize your IVs to your individual needs. And if you do not know your nutritional needs you can see one of our practitioners at St. Petersburg Health & Wellness (SPHW) and be tested to determine your nutritional needs.

You will not find this ability at most IV nutrition establishments, especially franchises that put a minuscule amount of important nutrients in their IVs and charge exorbitant prices. Some use as little as 500 milligrams (0.5 grams) of vitamin C in their IVs. Before your first or next IV find out how much vitamin C “they” put in their IVs, then call us to compare. VSIVN – 727-202-6807.
