Multivitamin

Vitamins are important micronutrients that the body needs for many metabolic pathways.

Vitamin deficiencies are common

Many vitamins, minerals, and amino supplements are not well absorbed by the body when taken orally. For some people, barriers may exist in the gastrointestinal tract preventing adequate absorption.

IV nutrition

IV and IM nutrition boosters

Administering nutrients via an injection or intravenously (IV) allows for much higher doses of these nutrients to be infused directly into the body. Studies have shown that as many as 39% of those taking vitamins on a regular basis in a nursing home setting were not absorbing the same vitamins they are taking by mouth leading to significant deficiencies.
