A vitamin infusion push – a therapy that can help you to feel back on top of your game

A vitamin push involves the same vitamin cocktail that would be used in the IV vitamin drip therapy. And, like the drip, a push can be customized with vitamins and supplements according to the needs of the patient. The standard cocktail consists of –

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium*
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin B-6
  • Panthenol (B5)
  • B-Complex
  • Vitamin C

iv vitamin infusion push not drip therapyThe big difference is that the cocktail is slowly pushed from a large syringe rather than being delivered from an IV drip.

In both cases – with a drip and a push – a catheter is inserted into the vein which is how the vitamin cocktail is delivered into the body. With a drip, an IV bag is connected to the catheter and with a push, the large syringe is connected to the catheter.



So what’s the difference between a vitamin push and a vitamin booster shot?

The push is about 30 ML’s of liquid vitamins; your blood stream can accept that volume of liquid. A booster shot consists of anywhere from 1 – 3 ML’s of liquid vitamins and is injected IM; intra-muscularly (injected into muscle fiber). Muscle fiber generally cannot accept a volume of liquid higher than 1 – 3 ML’s whereas the blood stream – through a catheter – can accept a much, much higher volume of liquid.

Why would you choose to do a push over an IV drip?

A vitamin push – also commonly known as a vitamin infusion – is generally the same cocktail used in the drip. A drip takes a minimum of 20-25 minutes whereas the push will lasts about 10 minutes as our medical professional manually and slowly pushes the cocktail.
