IV Nutritional Therapy & Vitamin Injections
In order for your body to properly absorb vital nutrients, your gut must be in optimal condition. Unfortunately, the “Standard American Diet” has created an epidemic of gut dysbiosis. It’s likely that when you consume certain foods, especially processed grains, you are consuming some amount of glyphosate. This chemical is the active ingredient in the weed killer Round Up. By design, glyphosate doesn’t only kill weeds, it kills bacteria found in the soil. When you eat food contaminated with glyphosate, beneficial bacteria in your gut is also killed, thereby disrupting your gut flora. You need a healthy gut to metabolize most vitamins.
Other common offenders to gut health are refined sugar, alcohol, dairy, artificial sweeteners, too much saturated fat, factory farm meat, GMOs, poor sleep, stress, and overly strenuous exercise. In addition, you might not be absorbing nutrients due to IBS, gastric bypass surgery, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, SIBO, and certain medications, including those to treat acid reflux.
A sad fact is that, even if your body is otherwise functioning optimally, you may not be consuming the amount of nutrients necessary to keep you feeling good. Modern farming practices have depleted our soil of nutrients, which in turn depletes nutrients from the food that we eat. A strawberry grown 50 years ago has more nutrients than a strawberry grown today.
Injectable vitamins and IV therapy bypass the GI tract allowing for the nutrients and/or hydration to be directly absorbed by the body. IV therapy is the fastest way to deliver the highest doses of nutrients, and results in 90-100% absorption. In contrast, supplements taken in pill form generally result in 20-50% absorption.
How Can Injectables Help Me?
Improved Wellness and Wellbeing
Wellness refers to the diverse range of factors that contribute to your overall wellbeing. It includes everything from your lifestyle to your emotions related to your environment, amongst other factors.
Vitamin therapy has been known to improve physical wellness and improve aspects of emotional wellness, such as depression and anxiety, by providing your body the tools it needs to tap into its best condition. When your body has the ideal balance of vitamins and nutrients for normal function, you’ll feel better, get sick less frequently, improve physical performance, and enjoy mental clarity.
Every day, your body requires a certain intake of vitamins and nutrients to maintain normal function. While the exact levels vary from person to person, the demands of life can make it difficult to ingest adequate amounts of these essential vitamins.
Injectable vitamins and IV therapy can help you look your best by working to:
Prevent the damaging effects of free radicals
Strengthen hair and nails
Improved Athletic Performance
Intensive physical training is very demanding on the body, requiring more nutrients and vitamins to maintain peak performance.
Workouts are not only tiring on muscles, but exercise can lead to the gradual build-up of free radicals. IV therapy for athletes is designed to flush out free radicals, promote healing, provide fast and thorough rehydration, and maintain muscle and tissues. IV therapy can provide amino acids, the building blocks of protein, which help the body during the recovery and muscle building process.
According to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a study conducted on mice suggested that glutathione, “the master antioxidant,” improved lipid metabolism and acidification in skeletal muscles during exercise, leading to less muscle fatigue. In a mouse and human study from Japan, data demonstrates that glutathione can boost mitochondrial levels in muscle, decrease the buildup of lactic acid in the muscles, and delay exercise-induced fatigue.
Fast Hangover Relief
Alcohol consumption dehydrates and removes nutrients from your body, which leads to headaches and muscle aches. At the same time, your liver produces toxins that can lead to general malaise.
Hangovers are hard on the body but recovery could be easier than you think. IV therapy for recovery contains electrolytes, vitamins, and anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medication. This combination of ingredients is designed to rehydrate and detoxify your body and restore nutrients and electrolytes lost as a result of drinking. The medication in this IV usually brings relief from your symptoms within an hour of treatment.
IV therapy and injectables don’t directly result in weight loss, but they assist in an indirect way. Benefits of our IV therapy treatments include:
All of these factors greatly influence how and if your body will lose weight and burn fat. IV therapy and injectables are most effective when used in conjunction with healthy eating and regular exercise.
