What are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

Intravenous nutrient therapy, also known as intravenous vitamin therapy, or IV Therapy, has taken off in popularity as a way to use the age-old medical procedure of an IV in a modern way: infusing your body with vital nutrients and hydration, so that it runs efficiently and effectively. Scientific American notes that our bodies may only get 10 to 90% of the nutrients in our food, depending on the overwhelming number of variables that impact our nutrient absorption rate via our imperfect digestive systems. Whether you are treating a serious illness, looking for a way to supercharge your workouts, recovering from a night out, or are simply are looking to supplement your diet in a healthy and effective way, L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa has an IV protocol for you.

Because IV Therapy treatments are so versatile and fully customizable, Dr. Ledbetter can formulate an IV Therapy protocol specifically tailored to your personal health goals. Patients in Austin have enjoyed the following benefits, thanks to IV Therapy:


When you optimize nutrition and hydration, your appearance can improve through clear skin, and radiant hair and healthy nails. Vitamin C, glutathione, and other vitamins, nutrients. and minerals can reduce breakouts, help improve skin elasticity, and hydrate your body from the inside out, so you can look and feel your very best.


Harness the power of science to fight the decline in your natural defenses against toxins and the cellular damage that occurs with aging, which lead to breakdowns in joint health, brain function, energy levels, and libido. Oxidation and dehydration are two of the most well-known factors that contribute to the symptoms of aging, and IV Therapies including nutrients such as glutathione, alpha-lipoic acid and Vitamin C can remove toxins and battle oxidants to help you feel and look years younger.


The buildup of toxins in the brain, hormonal imbalances, overwork, poor nutrition, and aging can all cause memory loss and reduce our recall abilities. Many people with careers requiring high levels of mental energy also find that when they are nutritionally depleted, their focus suffers. IV Therapy drips that combine Vitamins B12, B6, A, and C with magnesium, calcium and Omega 3s, are designed to increase mental clarity and focus.


Modern life constantly exposes us to harmful chemicals through pollution in our environment, our alcohol intake, cigarette smoke exposure, cosmetics, household cleaners, prescription medicines, and the plethora of processed foods we consume. These chemicals build up in our bodies over time and wreak havoc on a cellular level, which we can combat by delivering vital antioxidants and other nutrients directly to our cells and internal systems through an IV Therapy at L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa.


If your weight loss efforts are stalling out, it could be that your metabolism needs the boost of B Vitamins and other nutrients provided by IV Therapy formulated by Dr. Ledbetter, to help you burn fat more effectively and get you back on track with your weight loss goals.


IV therapy is great for not only boosting your physical energy, but also your mental energy. Instead of reaching for that next cup of coffee, schedule an IV Therapy infusion at L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa and get a natural boost to help you power through your hectic lifestyle.


If your body is depleted because you’re recovering from an illness, surgical procedure, a night out, or intense physical activity, you can reduce your recovery time with a boost of nutrients through IV Therapy. Infusions at L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa containing Vitamin C, alpha-lipoic acid, amino acids and Vitamin B12, plus the added hydration included in every IV Therapy treatment, can help you get back to your routine and feeling better in no time.

IV Therapy is also effective for treating more severe medical situations, like the build-up of lead and mercury in our soft tissues, or dealing with the aftermath of chemotherapy.


For a healthy and active immune system, your body needs fuel in the form of Vitamin C, B Vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid, and more. Many patients in Austin pursue IV Therapy as a form of self-care, to boost their immune systems before and after flights, or during cold and flu season.


Your body needs optimal hydration and nutrition to function properly, but as our bodies age, the digestive tract loses some of its capacity to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream, and illness and injury can make this even worse. IV Therapy can supercede diet and oral nutritional supplementation to achieve nutritional optimization. With IV Therapy, you bypass the digestive system and get the nutrients your body craves infused directly into your bloodstream.

Along with nutrients you receive intravenously, the IV Therapies formulated by Dr. Ledbetter provides the hydration your body craves to flush toxins from your body and keep your internal systems running smoothly.


When the stresses of modern life in Ocala build up, you need a healthy way to tackle them. IV Therapy can be a great addition to your stress-management routine. For some people, the simple act of sitting and relaxing comfortably for about an hour at L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa can have meditative benefits. But even better than that, IV Therapy gives your body the amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs, to naturally handle stress more effectively.


Nutritionists and the sports medicine industry are singing the praises of IV Therapy for hyper-fueling the body and speeding up recovery following intense physical activity. Your body needs adequate nutrients to rebuild muscle and improve stamina, and IV Therapy protocols containing Vitamin B12, calcium, amino acids, arginine and electrolytes can energize your game and help you recover faster.
