Can vitamin therapy restore your immune system?
In short… yes, there is a science to it
If you’ve watched the TV show “Billions” you might wonder what Bobby Axelrod’s wife Lara’s business is all about. You see her and her team marching into the offices of wealthy professionals with an army of IV drips. In fact, her business is to provide professionals with revitalising vitamins in high stress workplaces through IV drips, as they carry on with their jobs.
Of course, her drips are likely to be energy boosters, but in this article, I want to talk about how IV vitamin therapy can restore and boost your immune system.
We all know how important our immune systems are for both are mental and physical well- being. Not only does a well-functioning immune system stop us from falling prey to illnesses and diseases but in recent years, research has shown that there is a strong link between our immune systems and our mental health.
It is a fact that as we grow older, the vitality of our immune system diminishes. In addition to age, our immune systems have to combat a number of environmental factors such as stress, poor diet, sleeplessness, pollution and others. We are encouraged to boost it by taking vitamin supplements… particularly when we are feeling unwell. Let’s take a closer look at some of the vitamins that are key to maintaining a well- functioning immune system.
Which are the key vitamins important for immunity?
Vitamin C helps maintain your muscles, bones, immune system, and your circulatory system and helps your body remove excess free radicals which can cause cellular damage.
Vitamin B Complex
Vitamin B Complex consists of a combination of B vitamins that perform a range of vital functions including helping your body convert food into energy.
Glutathione is one of the body’s most important and potent antioxidants. While most antioxidants are found in the foods you eat, glutathione is produced by your body. It is primarily made up of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine and cysteine. There are a number of reasons why your body’s glutathione level may become depleted, including poor diet, chronic disease, infection and constant stress and age.
Like vitamin C, vitamin E can be a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection.
Isn’t a healthy diet enough?
Without a doubt, a healthy, well-balanced diet is vital… there are no two ways about that. However, not all of us are able to or have the knowledge to ensure that our bodies get all the necessary nutrients through diet alone. Also, we may have health conditions that require more of one nutrient or vitamin over another… In reality, it’s difficult to manage this. I am sure, you’ve experienced this. And It can be frustrating to say the least.
So, what is vitamin therapy?
Vitamin therapy is essentially a vitamin boost to the system. It has been proven to be a way to get those all-important vitamins into your system, quickly, safely and efficiently.
One of the ways we do this is through IV vitamin therapy, where a mix of these essential vitamins for immunity building are intravenously administered into your system.
When we feel our immune systems are compromised, most of us usually take oral supplements of vitamins … vitamin C, A or B6 or even herbal solutions like echinacea and ginseng. However, these have to go through our digestive systems before they can be absorbed and therefore complete absorption doesn’t occur… some of the benefit is ‘lost along the way.’
On the other hand, if the right combination of vitamins, that’s specific to your needs, is infused through intravenous therapy treatments, the absorption rate is 100%. How can you argue with that? Essentially the vitamin nutrients and antioxidants are delivered directly to the cells.
IV therapy also naturally detoxifies your body removing harmful free radicals that cause a build-up of toxins that reduces the effectiveness of your immune system. And to de-jargonise that… Free radicals are toxic by-products of oxygen metabolism that can damage living cells and tissues in a process called “oxidative stress.” Our bodies use vitamins and minerals called antioxidants to deal with these irritants.
At Vitacare Clinic, our IV Immuno Booster, consisting of a combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids will ‘Reboot your system’ and boost your immune systems performance.
