IV Vitamin Therapy Q & A

How does intravenous (IV) therapy work?

IV therapy is a treatment that delivers nutrients and vitamins to your bloodstream through a needle and medical tubing. According to Medical News Today, IV therapy is the most common noninvasive procedure used in healthcare. 

Taking these nutrients in the form of oral supplements is a popular option. While it can be effective, IV therapy is unique because it allows for more effective absorption since the substances don’t need to travel through your digestive tract. This means you’re more likely to get the full dose and notice the effects. 

Energize Testosterone & Wellness Center offers several IV therapy treatment options. A highly customizable treatment, IV therapy is a favorite among professional athletes, students, senior citizens, busy parents, and business professionals.

What should I expect during an IV therapy appointment?

After assessing your medical history and desired results, your practitioner selects the best IV therapy formulation for your unique needs and goals. Then, they insert the needle into a vein in your arm. The needle is attached by a tube to the IV bag, and the solution inside the bag flows into your vein one drip at a time.

IV therapy appointments last for about an hour. Because the nutrients enter directly into your bloodstream, none are lost during digestion or absorption through your muscles. You’ll feel improvements in your mood and/or energy level immediately.

What are some of the benefits of IV therapy?

Bouts of moodiness, tiredness, and low libido are all regular occurrences in adulthood, but creating an instant boost in your hydration and micronutrient levels can offset these negative experiences. IV therapy has many possible benefits. Patients typically use IV therapy to:


  • Boost their libido
  • Improve their mood
  • Relieve hangovers
  • Stay hydrated
  • Keep their minds sharp
  • Become energized
  • Fight sinus infections
  • Relieve fatigue after a tough workout
  • Manage hair loss
  • Rejuvenate their skin

The more noticeable effects of IV therapy typically last a few days, but additional improvements remain even longer.
