How Do Intravenous Nutrient Infusions Work?

Intravenous nutrient infusions in Ottawa, ON, Canada, are given with a small catheter inserted into the vein. The infusion is given very slowly over 20 or 30 minutes. The infusion can be given one to two times per week. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue infusions every one to four weeks. However, the number of intravenous nutrient infusions needed will depend on your goals and your condition.


The side effects are usually mild and not common but can include sensations such as flushing and heat and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion starts.


When vitamins and minerals are given orally, they may not be absorbed properly for a number of reasons. However, directly administering nutrients to the body may increase a person's levels and the increased levels provide an immediate therapeutic response in order to correct any deficiencies. Some of the conditions that are helped with intravenous nutrient infusions include hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, asthma, and even cancer.
