Intravenous vitamin therapy (also known as intravenous micronutrient therapy and hydration therapy) is a method of delivering high concentrations of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream which allows the rapid absorption of larger doses of vitamins and minerals than a person can receive through food or supplements.
Vitamin infusion is used in cases when it is not possible to get enough vitamins and minerals from food or a certain disease prevents the absorption of nutrients. Some proponents claim that vitamin infusion can improve the condition of the body even in people who do not have a vitamin or mineral deficiency. It is considered as a reliable method of treatment and because of its great results it is called the "secret weapon" of famous public figures.
