What's the difference between an IV Drip, IV Push & a Booster Shot?
IV is an abbreviation for “intravenous”. To administer an IV Drip, a small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein. IV Drips consist of 250-1000 ml of fluid with a mixture of vitamins and antioxidants. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and vitamins throughout the body with 100 % absorption into the bloodstream. IV Drips usually take 45-60 min to infuse.
An IV Push is infused directly into the bloodstream via a plastic catheter that is inserted into the vein. IV Pushes are a 60 cc syringe of high dose vitamins & glutathione with minimal fluid hydration allowing a quick 10-15 min administration. You still get 100% absorption via an IV Push.
A Vitamin Booster Shot is a quick 10-second injection that delivers a few vitamins intramuscularly, directly into the gluteal or deltoid muscle. There is no IV access required with vitamin boosters. The dosages of vitamins also differ due to smaller volumes can be injected into the muscle. The booster shot muscle absorption is surprisingly nearly equal to that of IV going directly into the bloodstream.
