Scrolling through the list of conditions that IV therapy can treat can seem a little overwhelming. It is true that there are many conditions that can benefit from IV therapy so in the next series of blogs we hope to help you understand how specific nutrients can help certain conditions and why.
Let’s begin with the Immune Boosting IV.
This IV is ideal when you know you will be exposed to illness for example prior to a long flight, if you have family or co-workers around you who are sick or if you are feeling a bit off. It can also help speed a slow recovery following illness to get back to feeling 100%.
The immune boosting bag has a combination of nutrients to balance it out along with healthy doses of zinc, selenium and vitamin C.
Zinc – this trace element is required in over 100 enzymatic reactions in the body and is found in high concentrations in several tissues including the skin, retina (eyes), prostate, red and white blood cells RBC & WBC). By increasing zinc, we can support the WBC’s, our immune system’s work horse.
Selenium – this antioxidant works to protect the body from oxidation caused from inflammation during illness while also playing an important role in the formation of glutathione to support optimal detoxification.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) – this powerhouse supports the immune system by increasing macrophage activity. To be clear these are the white blood cells that locate and “eat” foreign particles like viruses, bacteria and fungi. As the same time vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and supports the adrenal glands through the stress of illness.
Its never fun to come down with a cold or a flu but it does happen and the Immune Boosting IV is here to help you through it! For more information on our IV lounge & IV treatments click here!
