Why get nutrients from an IV?

Nutrients are easy to get from some healthy foods and supplements, right? So why get them from an IV? It's a common question, and a good one. The fact is, only about 20-30% of the nutrients we eat are absorbed into the body. The rest are lost in the digestion process.

Vitamins injected directly into the bloodstream via IV are nearly 100% effective. This makes you feel great almost immediately!

Medical Infusion & Injection 

NANO Injection

An injection is a method of administering drugs or medication using a needle and syringe. This is quite common for people because the same process is used for vaccination like flu shots. This method is one of the ways used to administer anesthesia for intrusive procedures like childbirth and non-intrusive process such as dental extractions, Botox, dermal fillers, etc. There are different injection types, but NANO uses the three most common: Intradermal injection, Subcutaneous injection, and Intramuscular injection.​

  • Intradermal Injection – this type of injection is typically used for an allergy test, skin test, sensitivity test, and local anesthesia test. The medication is injected just beneath the skin and is widely used for diagnostic purposes. The injection is given at a 5 to 15-degree angle, and the absorption time is the longest for this method.

 

  • Subcutaneous Injection – this method is used to administer the medication to the tissues that are in the middle of the skin and the muscle. This is typically used for medications like Insulin and vaccines like varicella and MMR. The absorption time for subcutaneous injection is slower than intramuscular but faster than intradermal.

 

  • Intramuscular Injection – This method has the fastest absorption time since it is injected directly into the muscle and is immediately absorbed by blood vessels. This is commonly used for medications that need to take immediate effects like antibiotics, haloperidol, and morphine. Some vaccines like the influenza vaccine and Hepa-A vaccine is usually administered this way.

NANO IV Infusion

Infusion in medical terms is to introduce new liquid through the vein into the bloodstream by administering it through an intravenous line (IV line) for therapeutic purposes. Different kinds of medication can be used for infusion, and with the use of infusion, treatments are fast and strong. This is typically used for chemotherapy, chronic pain, antibiotics, hydration, boosting immunity, glutathione, etc.

  • Biologics – Protein-based drugs found on living things that help in the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

 

  • Chemotherapy – specific medication to kill cancer cells in any area of the body. During chemotherapy, antibiotics and pain killers are sometimes infused to help cure cancer.

 

  • Fluids – Liquid that is intended to replace water, sugar, and salt if you can’t eat or drink normally, it is also known as IV fluids that are used for operations, including pre-operation and post-operation.

 

  • NAD+ Infusion - Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme present in almost all cells of the body. NAD+ is essential in metabolic function, slowing the aging process, promoting athletic function, boosting brain repair and function

 

  • Pain Management – Chronic pains usually restrict normal movements, cause discomfort, and sometimes keep you even from walking. There are different reasons why this happens, and there are also numerous medications that can be used, such as morphine, which is best if infused for faster relief.

  • Parenteral and enteral nutrition - The goal of this method is to provide nutrition to the body if the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is not functional. This is one of the methods used to rehabilitate people who suffered from anorexia.

  • Dehydration -A cocktail of electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals can help replenish depleted systems. Scheduling an IV infusion at a clinic after an athletic event like a triathlon or before an extended travel day can help the body recover quicker.

  • Diet-based illnesses - Those with high food allergy sensitivities may not be able to intake an appropriate amount of vitamins, minerals, or calories to sustain their daily life and keep them feeling strong.
