Did you know that taking vitamins orally only give you up to 25% of the actual nutrients? Essentially what this means is if you ingest a 500mg vitamin c capsule, only about 75mg/15% of the nutrients will get into your bloodstream. A trending celebrity beauty secret is on the rise, and it takes taking vitamins to an entirely different level. It’s called a Vitamin IV Drip. The process involves injecting a vitamin mix directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous system. This gives you a highly concentrated amount of nutrients, which in turn increases your absorption.
There are several companies popping up that are offering this interesting beauty feat. Most offer the service for about $200 a session. There are 4 different options for your IV a detox, hangover relief, an immune system boost, and if your feeling a little frisky a libido boost. The results of the 45 min. session appear within the following 24 hours after, and last for about a week. Regular sessions are suggested for optimal and longer lasting results.
Like with anything else there are a few risks to the potential IV fountain of youth. There could be brushing at the injection site and if you have sensitive veins there is the potential for rupture. Other than that, it seems to be pretty safe. So does this replace your daily vitamin? I would say no, but if you are looking for a skin pick me up that has quick results and is healthy, this may be your go to option. It seems like this would be a great option if you had a wedding or special event to attend, and you want to put your best foot, or should I say skin forward!
