Vitamins and minerals are essential to keeping your immune system strong and healthy—especially during the holiday season. Temperatures around the U.S. are generally cooler, and you may spend more time indoors staying warm and less time outside in the sun. Sometimes it’s difficult to get all the vitamins you need through diet alone, as doing so requires careful nutrition and meal planning. IV vitamin therapy may be the solution you need to stay strong and healthy this holiday season, and to reduce your risk for illness and disease.
What Is IV Vitamin Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a treatment in which essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are infused directly into your bloodstream. The vitamins you get through food and nutritional supplements enter your bloodstream after going through a slow digestive process. In comparison, IV therapy delivers vitamins to your bloodstream for an instantaneous effect that allows you to benefit from improved health and higher energy right away.
During IV drip therapy, a qualified nurse or doctor accesses a vein in your arm, secures a needle, and attaches it to your “vitamin cocktail” via a long, thin tube. An IV drip therapy session can last anywhere between 20 minutes and one hour, during which you’ll be monitored closely by a medical professional.
Your vitamin cocktail will contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients pre-selected by your medical professional. IV therapy treatment can be used as a detox, antioxidant treatment, or as a hydration treatment following an illness. Your vitamin cocktail will be customized just for you based on your unique health needs.
Why is IV Vitamin Therapy Important During the Holiday Season?
Influenza and the common cold are some of many viruses that tend to circulate during the winter and holiday season—mainly due to colder temperatures and limited exposure to the sunlight that helps our bodies make vitamin D. Additionally, holiday shopping and family get-togethers can make it difficult for people to stick to their diet and exercise regimens—increasing the risk for nutritional deficiency and illness.
Those who may be vitamin-deficient during the holiday season can receive IV vitamin therapy to get their health back on track and to avoid influenza, the common cold, and other contagious viruses. IV vitamin therapy can also help you feel more energetic so you can fulfill important obligations related to work and family during the holidays.
Which Vitamins are Included in IV Vitamin Therapy?
Vitamins A, B, C, and D are usually included in IV drip therapy, along with magnesium, calcium, potassium, and antioxidants and amino acids. Our medical professionals can talk to you about your vitamin needs during a free consultation, and suggest a vitamin cocktail that can effectively boost your immune system and energy levels.
What Are Other Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy?
In addition to boosting your immunity, IV vitamin therapy can eliminate toxins from your body to improve the appearance of your skin, reduce chronic inflammation, and improve your mental wellness.
Other benefits of IV vitamin therapy include:
- Smoother, youthful skin
- Brighter skin and complexion
- Reduced signs of aging (e.g., fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots)
- Improved metabolism
- Potential weight loss
- Reduction in symptoms of illness
- Higher energy
- Faster wound healing
- Improved endurance and athletic performance
- Shorter recovery time
Who are Ideal Candidates for IV Vitamin Therapy?
Ideal candidates for IV drip therapy will be anyone who wants to feel refreshed and more energetic, and who wants to improve overall health.
If you’ve been feeling fatigued and run down this holiday season, your immune system may greatly benefit from IV vitamin therapy. If you feel as though dryness and winter weather have you looking older than your true years, IV vitamin therapy can restore hydration to help you achieve more youthful, beautiful skin.
Other ideal candidates for IV vitamin therapy include those with asthma, fibromyalgia, migraine, allergies, sinus infections, respiratory infections, and chronic pain. If you recently participated in a marathon or intense sporting event, IV vitamin therapy can help speed up your recovery.
