    Why would you want it? There has been no real research on it although it does seem popular with the celebs. As far as I can see it seems to be a short term fix. I can see that occassionally people need a vitamin boost for medical reasons, but I think I would like to find out what the underlying problem was first.

      It was more a general enquiry to be honest, iv just stumbled across it done some research on the net but thought I'd rather ask on a forum where real people with first hand experience can share there views.

      I'v always been interested in alternative treatments but very sceptical at the same time, thank you 😊

      I think it really depends what the alternative treatment is for. People have been lulled into so called natural treatments against conventional treatments and have died. Just because something is called natural does not mean it has no side effects, some can be quite lethal if people are not careful.

    It is esential to have a balanced diet. 

    Then no need for vitamins. 

    If your deficient in vitamin B,C or D, then only take those supplements.

      One can eat a balanced diet and still be deficient. Supplements don't always work. Malabsorption can be the cause. Thus the concept of intotrducing straight into the bloodstream is interesting.

      On the other hand an awful lot of people take supplements when they could just have a decent diet. I am sure the supplement manufacturers are happy though.

      That is why it is debatable that supplements are necessary, even though vitamin deficiency may make these necessary.

      IV vitamin supplements may be required in case of malabsorption as jenny said above.
