When it comes to the vitamins and nutrients our bodies require to be in the best condition possible, the truth is—we don’t always get everything we need from foods and oral supplements. 

That’s where IV nutritional therapy can come into play. Intended to complement a healthy diet and active lifestyle, this form of therapy may offer a variety of benefits, from improving recovery time after an injury to helping strengthen your immune system.

Is IV Nutritional Therapy for Senior Citizens?

One misconception about IV nutritional therapy is that it’s only meant for younger adults. But that’s not true! Adults of various ages can experience the many IV vitamin therapy benefits it has to offer. Here are some of the benefits older adults may experience as a result of IV nutritional therapy.

Benefit #1: IV vitamin therapy can help improve your overall well-being.

IV vitamin therapy benefits can range from fewer headaches and improved immunity to reduced anxiety and a variety of others in between. Many patients choose to take advantage of IV nutritional therapy for the benefit of boosting their immune systems. 

For older adults and people with serious underlying medical conditions, maintaining a healthy immune system is important now more than it ever has been. Learn more about Olympia Compounding Pharmacy’s Immunity IV Kit today to see how it could help build up your immune system today.

Benefit #2: IV vitamin therapy works quickly.

Another major IV vitamin therapy benefit is that you may start to feel the effects of the treatment nearly instantly. Other vitamin-enriched medications and foods that are taken orally have to go through the digestive system and can take some time to absorb into the body. Because IV vitamin therapy is performed intravenously, it goes directly into the bloodstream, which allows quick absorption of nutrients into the body.

Benefit #3: It can help contribute to healthy weight loss.

Losing weight can be challenging for anybody. But it can be especially more challenging for older adults to lose weight, as metabolisms start slowing and muscle mass starts reducing—even for those who remain physically active.

IV nutritional therapy can help with weight loss in a few ways:

  • – Hydration: Hydration can be a huge factor in weight loss, as it helps boost your metabolism, suppresses appetite and cleanses the body of toxins. See how our Quench IV Kit could help you rehydrate, detox and restore essential vitamins.
  • – Sleep: Lack of sleep has repeatedly been reported as a factor in weight gain. For some, even while staying strict to a diet and frequent exercise, lack of sleep was a major factor that prevented them from losing weight. Adults should get between 7–9 hours of sleep per night, depending on each individual’s needs.
  • – Vitamin Absorption: As mentioned, when the body is able to absorb nutrients 100% through the bloodstream, it’s getting what it needs to perform at its best. When you’re able to recover quicker after a workout, the next session can start sooner and you can push harder—helping to speed up your metabolism and facilitate weight loss.

Benefit #4: It may help reduce the effects of aging.

IV vitamin therapy can also help with quenching skin from the inside out. At Olympia, we offer an IV kit called Inner Beauty, which is designed for just that: bringing out your skin’s natural glow, reducing wrinkles and making your skin look its most radiant. It’s packed with ascorbic acid, B-complex vitamins and biotin—all essential nutrients for maintaining healthy skin and blood cells.

Benefit #5: It can be a good source for an energy boost.

Lack of energy can be caused by a number of things: low B12 levels, stress, lack of sleep, electrolyte imbalances and more. IV drips help combat these issues, as they are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients, which reduces the need to turn to other (often unhealthy) energy supplements like coffee, energy drinks, soda, etc. One major IV vitamin therapy benefit you may see is that it can help fight fatigue and improve circulation, improving your overall energy levels and metabolism.
