Upgrade your Immune System with IV Nutritional Therapy: Using IV Nutritional Therapy for Maintaining a Great Immune System
Did you know that maintaining a healthy immune system isn’t just a seasonal affair?
Fall is the benchmark for the beginning of cold and flu season and even if we wash our hands, get plenty of sleep and eat right it may not be everything we need. A robust immune system is also a key factor in your best tool to fight against any virus! This is why it's important to be mindful of how to help further nurture your immune system throughout the year, seasonal or not.
An adequate amount of essential nutrients and vitamins is key for supporting your body in order to function at its best. When you lack the necessary nutrients or become dehydrated, it can negatively affect how you feel, as well as vital bodily and cognitive functions.
What is the difference between IV Nutritional Therapy and a Vitamin Supplement?
When vitamins are ingested orally, they must go through the process of being digested in our gut. In addition, much of the vitamin’s potency is lost during the ingestion process. In pill form, only about 50% of a vitamin may be absorbed, while an IV infusion goes directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gut, and allowing the delivery of nutrients in much higher concentrations than oral vitamins allowing for a 100% absorption rate.
But wait, What does my immune system do?
Your immune system is a complex network of organs, cells, and proteins that defends the body against infection, whilst protecting the body's own cells. The immune system keeps a record of every germ (microbe) it has ever defeated so it can recognize and destroy the microbe quickly if it enters the body again.
So why use IV Nutritional Therapy to boost your immune system?
IV Nutritional Therapy has been used in hospitals to rehydrate and nourish the sick since the 1800s and is still to this day delivered in the same way. So why wouldn’t we use it as an extra boost and preventative treatment to help maintain a healthy immune system throughout the year and more so during the Fall and Winter seasons when sick numbers spike.
Think of your immune system as your body's army that keeps guard around the clock for your body. With an immune system boost, you are allowing your immunity army to lessen the amount of time it takes to recover from an illness. Each IV Nutritional Therapy formula is different but includes known immune system boosters such as Vitamin C, Zinc, and certain B Vitamins for example.
Please note: Immunity boosts for your immune system are not meant to replace medical care for serious illnesses but it can give your system a little extra healing power.
