What is the difference between IV and tablet vitamins?

The key differences between taking vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients in tablet form versus by IV, include bioavailability, the dose, and of course, the quality of the nutrients. When we ingest tablet supplements, not everything is absorbed by the gut. What is absorbed is immediately taken to the liver, where even more is lost in metabolic processes (first-pass metabolism). By giving these nutrients via a drip, we avoid the incomplete absorption of the gut, and the first-pass liver metabolism (which normally leaves us around a mere 20% of what we consumed!). This means 100% of the nutrition is delivered directly to your bloodstream. We can also rapidly rehydrate the body with fluids given in the drip.
