IV INFUSION THERAPY COMPONENTS
Your IV vitamin infusion therapy treatment can consist of one or more vitamins and minerals. Our treatments help supply numerous vitamins and minerals intravenously, aiding in delivering wellness and health directly through the bloodstream. These include:
Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1 is a water-soluble vitamin that helps the body convert carbohydrates into energy. It plays a vital role in heart, nerve and muscle function.
Riboflavin is a water-soluble vitamin that aids the body to produce energy and is an antioxidant that helps rid the body of free radicals. It also needed to change Vitamin A, B3, B6 and B9 into usable forms.
Other essential functions include red blood cell production and aiding body growth
Nicotinamide, also known as Vitamin B3 or niacinamide is essential in providing cellular energy production and helps to breakdown fats and proteins. It’s a water-soluble vitamin that also aids the body to remove toxins and has positive effects on cholesterol levels.
Pantothenic acid, also known as Vitamin B5 is a water-soluble vitamin that is required for the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in the body.
It assists in lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and may help to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Pyridoxine, also known as Vitamin B6 is required to metabolise proteins and carbohydrates in the body. It is a water-soluble vitamin that aids in the production of red blood cells, brain development and function, and immune function.
There is some evidence that it may be useful to treat conditions such as Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and carpal tunnel.
Vitamin B12 helps make your DNA and red blood cells. Your body does not make Vitamin B12 naturally and therefore you need to get it from animal-based foods or supplements. It needs to be consumed on a regular basis and the amount required is dependent on your age, your diet, your medical conditions and what medications you take.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by some medical conditions, such as atrophic gastritis; pernicious anaemia; weight loss surgery (where part of your stomach or small intestine is removed); Celiac disease, some immune diseases ; alcoholism; and long term use of acid reducing drugs. Vegans can also suffer from Vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant which assists to counteract the damage caused by free radicals. It helps to build and maintain tissues; supports the immune system and can aid in decreasing cholesterol.
The body does not produce vitamin c and it is only obtained through diet.
Calcium is a mineral, approximately 99% of calcium in the body is located in our bones and teeth to keep them healthy. Additionally calcium is required to help clot our blood, nerve function, muscle contraction and immune function.
While some research suggests that calcium may assist to reduce the risk of colon cancer, calcium supplements should be avoided by people suffering from prostate cancer.
Vitamin D is a crucial component in the human body for promoting immune system health, proper blood circulation, heart health as well as facilitating healthy bone growth and overall skeletal health. It is also important for the digestive system as it helps the intestines absorb other essential vitamins and nutrients like calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.
Calcitriol, an active ingredient in vitamin D behaves as a hormone would in men and women alike. If the body is experiencing a deficiency in vitamin D it will act as lack of crucial hormones would and begin to show up in unpleasant symptoms. Some of these side effects include fragile or brittle bone structure, fatigue, poor digestive health, headaches, weight gain, insomnia and more. IV Vitamin D drip is an easy way to increase vitamin D levels effectively and quickly. New research shows that there is an increased risk of alzheimers and dementia in patients with vitamin D deficiency.
What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D is often known as the sunlight vitamin as it is produced in our skin as a result of reaction to sunlight. You can also get vitamin D through certain foods such as oily fish, red meat, egg yolk and fortified foods.
Why should we supplement vitamin D?
Vitamin D often needs to be supplemented in individuals who spend a lot of time indoors (office workers) or who have been picked up to have low levels. Vitamin D is shown to:
- Improve your bone health and reduce your risk of osteoporosis
- Assist with weight loss
- Improve cardiovascular health
- Fight off disease by improving your immune system (a great thing to consider before flu season!)
Who would we recommend to receive vitamin D injections?
Patients who are having difficulty supplementing vitamin D orally, or those who are looking to be more efficient in their life and consider intermittent dosing through intramuscular (IM) injections will benefit from injections. Also individuals who want to improve their general health will also benefit from this treatment.
Glutathione is an antioxidant which is naturally produced in the cells of our bodies. Its powerful properties neutralise free radicals while simultaneously helping to recycle vitamins C and E.
It has incredible detoxifying capabilities and can help decrease inflammation and muscle fatigue, which can assist people suffering from Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, and neurological illnesses. It has been used to treat symptoms of many diseases, such as Alzheimerâ€™s; MS; Parkinsonâ€™s, chronic fatigue, glaucoma, heart disease, irritable bowel and more.
Glutathione also assists in the reduction of melanin production, which may help to lighten the skin. Exercise can reduce Glutathione levels in the body leaving you feeling tired and your body may be vulnerable to injury. It also helps to slow the normal ageing process, as it helps to reduce the toxins in the body.
Magnesium is a mineral that’s vital to the body’s function. It aids in the absorption of calcium playing a key role in the strength of your bones and teeth, it also helps keep your blood pressure normal and your heart beat stable.
It can be very beneficial for people who suffer from osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, heart disease or high blood pressure.
Known as compound sodium lactate can help replace lost body fluids and mineral salts after exercise, illness or hangovers. It is particularly suitable when the losses result in too much acid being present in the blood.
