Benefits of Combining IV Therapy with Weight Loss

No matter what type of weight loss plan you use, losing weight involves restricting your food intake, increasing your exercise, or both. You need to burn more calories than you consume and that can result in a nutrient deficiency. Hydration is also extremely important when losing weight – as you burn fat, the toxins released in the fat-burning process need to be flushed from your body. To replace lost fluids and nutrients, IV drip therapy can be very beneficial for those losing weight.

Most people understand the basic idea of weight loss – if you are in a calorie deficit, your body burns fat for energy. There are many different diets and weight loss programs, from the classic low-calorie diet to keto, low carb and whole-food varieties. What some people may not know is that the body needs certain nutrients to efficiently burn fat. B-vitamins play a key role in fat metabolism, as do many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. When you reduce your food intake, you may also be reducing the very nutrients you need to burn the fat you want to lose.

IV Infusion Drips for Fat Burning

Anyone who is trying to lose fat can benefit from supplementing their nutrients and fluids with IV drip therapy. This is an ideal way to ensure your body has the nutrients it needs for burning fat and a healthy metabolism, including B-vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  There are many advantages to using an IV drip versus oral supplements, health drinks or other nutrient options. IV infusions offer:

  • Direct absorption into the bloodstream
  • No unneeded calories or binders
  • Bypass the digestive system
  • Add fluids for hydration

Replenishing of the fluids and nutrients during weight loss can boost the effectiveness of the fat-burning process. This can help maximize fat loss while maintaining better health and energy levels.

Bariatric IV Drip Therapy

Anyone who has undergone bariatric or weight loss surgery is an excellent candidate for IV infusion therapy. Bariatric patients are at risk for nutritional deficiencies and dehydration, especially in the first few weeks and months after surgery. IV drips are ideal as they skip the digestive system that has been dramatically changed through surgery. Many bariatric patients who have had gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or other weight loss surgery can benefit from weekly IV drip sessions to hydrate and supplement nutrients.
