Nutrients are vital for optimal wellness and it is challenging to gain all of our vitamins and minerals from a balanced diet. Our typical diet is depleted in a multitude of vitamins essential for optimal wellness and even if we are eating a complete whole foods diet, many Americans are still unable to absorb macro- and micronutrients due to gastrointestinal problems, such as intestinal permeability. Despite advances in medicine, we currently are not receiving an adequate amount of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which are the basic building blocks that make every cell in our body function. Our bodies are lacking essential vitamins and minerals due to the soil our food is grown in is depleted, our food is processed, and it is also genetically modified as well as covered in pesticides. The Western Diet, which is our staple, is devoid in all of these nutrients.
Very low dietary intake of a vitamin or nutritionally essential mineral can result in deficiency disease, termed micronutrient deficiency. Micronutrient deficiency affects approximately 2 billion people worldwide. Ultimately a major contributor to infections and associated with severe illness and event sometimes, death. An imbalance of these nutrients has shown to exacerbate many conditions along with damaging of DNA, neuronal decay in the central nervous system, and premature aging through mitochondrial decay.
Such inadequacies may occur when micronutrient intake is above the level associated with deficiency but below dietary intake recommendations. In contrast to micronutrient deficiencies that result in clinically overt symptoms, micronutrient inadequacies may cause covert symptoms only that are difficult to detect clinically. For example, micronutrient inadequacies could elicit symptoms of general fatigue, reduced ability to fight infections, or impaired cognitive function (e.g. attention [concentration and focus], memory, and mood). Micronutrient inadequacies may also have important implications for long-term health and increase one’s risk for chronic diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, and age-related eye disease. Prescription medications can also cause nutrient deficiencies. Most medications have the potential to impact nutritional needs by altering the way the body absorbs, metabolizes, or excretes nutrients. The depletion of nutrients can contribute to some of the adverse reactions and intolerances that are experienced when utilizing medications. On occasion, nutritional deficiencies can also be mistaken for symptoms of a disease process.
While there are a variety of ways to administer micronutrients, providing them via the intravenous (IV) route is the most effective ways of correcting the essential vitamin and mineral intracellular deficits. Intravenous administration provides direct delivery to the bloodstream; bypassing any obstacles in the digestive system that may hinder absorption. This results in 100% bioavailability.
Oral absorption of a nutrient is often affected by food or impaired by other nutrients and minerals. For example, the absorption of zinc that is given orally is impaired by iron. Additionally, IV administration can prevent gastrointestinal side effects such as upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting which can be limiting for proper dosing and adherence. Improved absorption with reduced GI adverse effects may make IV administration a more suitable option for many patients.
