IV vitamin therapy is 100% safe if you drip at a reputable place that offers medically approved vitamins that have been compounded in a sterile facility. All medical details must be provided beforehand and the drip needs to be administered by a registered nurse. Then you’re all good! Everyone can (and should) drip, except people with severe kidney dysfunction and pregnant ladies. Even though it’s safe, the dosage may be too much for an unborn foetus, so we prefer not to drip pregnant ladies.
It’s a tiny little prick as the needle is inserted, then the needle is removed and a small plastic tube remains in the vein which is not sore at all. You won’t have any pain or discomfort once you are dripping. And the benefits far outweigh the 2 seconds of discomfort, we promise!
What is the difference between oral vitamins and intravenous vitamins? And is a Vitamin B shot as effective as an IV drip?IVBAR2021-04-13T06:20:56+00:00
Oral vitamins travel through the digestive system which can result in negative side effects such as nausea and constipation, and only allows for 20-30% absorption. Vitamins and minerals administered intravenously guarantee 100% absorption into the bloodstream, and a much higher dose of vitamins can be tolerated. The results are therefore more effective and longer lasting. Vitamin B injections contain Vitamin B12 Neurobion only, but a much lower dose than IV drips. The Vitamins enter the muscle first, therefore you only get about a 60% absorption, and they are bloody sore! You need a course of four to six Vit B shots to be effective.
How long does it take to administer?IVBAR2021-04-13T06:23:33+00:00
Some people feel the effects immediately, especially a sense of calm that comes over you. Others will feel it as the day goes on, and others when they wake up the next day. And the effects last approximately four weeks, depending on lifestyle.

We administer different amounts of Vitamin B12, Vitamin B Complex (all the other Vitamin B’s), Vitamin C, Magnesium and Glutathione, depending on the drip selected. All vitamin and mineral compounds are administered in saline which is made up of sodium chloride, which is safe and excellent for rehydration and replenishing electrolytes.
Can I combine different drips?IVBAR2021-04-13T06:27:29+00:00
We purchase all our vitamins from Fagron, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. All vitamins and minerals are compounded in their sterile compounding facility in Johannesburg and Cape Town. This ensures all our vitamins are pre-compounded at the correct dosage, making them the safest, most sterile and most effective vitamin drips in the country.
