A Cheaper Alternative to IV Vitamin Drips
People have been talking about intravenous (IV) vitamin drip treatments as a speedy hangover cure for a few years now. But as more wellness insiders and medicine pioneers are starting to adopt this quick, intravenous method of taking your nutrients, the IV vitamin drip has become even more popular.
IV drips may be a growing trend, but should you look into making them a part of your wellness routine?
Why People Are Using IV Vitamin Drips
Since most people are fed up with swallowing their vitamins, the IV drip is a great alternative. An IV drip has the ability to thoroughly hydrate your body with the vitamins, minerals and amino acids you need with a 100% absorption rate.
How? Well, unlike gummy vitamins or vitamins you swallow, the IV drip completely bypasses your stomach. Instead, you administer it by inserting a small plastic tube (catheter) into a vein using a needle. This way the fluid that gets injected can easily enter directly into the bloodstream and disperse throughout the body right away.
Well and Good recently wrote an article on the growing popularity on IV drips, in which they explain that “IV infusions have been credited with doing everything from enhancing your skin’s glow, to combating jet lag, aiding muscle recovery, and improving your digestion (the most popular treatments are skin-enhancing and immunity boosts).” Pretty amazing, right?!
The Downside of IV Drips
While there are many amazing benefits of taking IV drips, we do find some downsides that are worth reviewing before signing up for an IV.
- Administered with a Needle: If you suffer from aichmophobia (the fear of needles), you may find that IV drips are not really your most comfortable option.
- Time to Infuse: The IV vitamin drip usually takes 45-60 minutes to infuse. For many of us, time is of the essence, making this a rather long process to build into your vitamin-and-mineral regimen. Specially since it’s not available everywhere and you must drive to the location that offers the IV drip.
- Medical Costs: Since most people do not know how to administer their own IV drips, it’s best to get it done by an experienced professional. As a result, the treatment will quickly become quite costly.
A Better Alternative to IV Drips
We find that, considering the downsides of IVs, the best way to take your vitamins is to take them via the buccal mucosa. The buccal mucosa is accessible under your tongue (see photo to the right). When you place any substance here, it will dissolve and absorb into your bloodstream through the tissue.
Unlike the IV drip, this process usually takes 30-60 seconds and can be done by anyone, anywhere, without the help of a doctor! And, because the vitamins go directly to your bloodstream, this delivery method is nearly as effective as an IV.
What Are Frunutta Vitamins
Frunutta vitamins are quick dissolving tablets that can be placed on the buccal mucosa (under the tongue). This pure and clean supplement will provide you with a much higher absorption rate than swallowed pills, with a much lower cost and time commitment than an IV drip. In a matter of seconds, you will take your vitamins and be on with your day!
Our founder, Dr. Alavi, wanted to make something so simple that every person could have an easier experience getting their daily vitamins and nutrients without any discomfort. We also pride ourselves on the fact that Frunutta has eliminated all of the additives and impurities found in every swallowed pill and other melts, making sure you are getting what you need and nothing more.
