Vitamin Malabsorption

Vitamin Malabsorption

The term vitamin malabsorption syndrome generally describes various disorders which impede the ability of the intestines to absorb nutrients. When symptoms of malabsorption are not the result of an underlying illness, it is generally due to either inflammation or injury to the intestinal lining.

Proper absorption in the intestines is essential to a healthy body because it’s the intestines that allow nutrients that pass through the digestive system to enter the bloodstream. When a person is diagnosed with one of the conditions that can cause malabsorption, it generally means that their body isn’t able to get many of the nutrients being consumed orally; like vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Malabsorption Syndrome

At The Wellness Firm, our team of medical professionals has experience in helping those who suffer from malabsorption syndrome reduce some of the discomfort and negative effects of the condition. While there is not yet a known cure for illnesses that result in malabsorption, the medical industry has made great strides in helping those with vitamin malabsorption manage symptoms and even reduce the frequency of some symptoms. Some of the illnesses commonly associated with malabsorption are inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and celiac sprue.

Malabsorption Treatment

Malabsorption treatment by IV vitamin therapy works by injecting nutrients directly into the bloodstream via a basic IV drip. Even individuals who don’t suffer from symptoms of vitamin malabsorption can benefit from this kind of therapy because direct injection of nutrients is more beneficial than consuming those nutrients orally.

This is because, unless you practice regular healthy eating habits, you probably aren’t getting enough of one or more essential vitamins and minerals in your diet. Even if you try to eat healthily, the digestive processes in the stomach and liver significantly dilute the potency and effectiveness of nutrients consumed. This is why oral supplements in pill form can be just as ineffective as healthy eating in regards to getting optimal levels of vitamins and minerals into the body.

Vitamins For Symptoms Of Malabsorption

One vitamin commonly prescribed to those with malabsorption is glutathione. Glutathione is not just a powerful antioxidant that helps fight off harmful free radicals in the blood, it also works as an anti-inflammatory which could reduce inflammation in the intestines.

Because a person with malabsorption isn’t getting all of the nutrients the body needs, a physician may prescribe a Myers’ Cocktail for IV injection, which is a popular blend of vitamins including several from the B complex of vitamins (to help the body convert food into fuel), calcium (for healthy bones, regular heartbeat, and properly functioning muscles), vitamin C (for a healthy immune system, healthy tissue, blood, and skin), and magnesium (for healthy kidneys, muscles, and a healthy heart).
