Intravenous Vitamin Therapy (IV)
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy (IV)
The new revolutionary method of anti-aging!
It refers to the intravenous infusion of vitamins and traces. This treatment has gained much publicity and popularity in recent years. Many publications such as the Kardasians and Rhiana promote it on social media. Intravenous infusion clinics are popping up like mushrooms in England and America and this trend is slowly reaching the rest of Europe.
What happens to the body during intravenous infusion?
The first intravenous infusions were developed in the 1970s by John Myers. His research led to the creation of the well-known and well-established Myers coctail
These infusions last 20 minutes to an hour.
They are done in the office by specialized medical personnel. During the infusion our body receives a high content of vitamins.
When the vitamins are taken orally as supplements they break down in the stomach and then pass on to the rest of the gastrointestinal tract. Many factors such as age, metabolism, general health, interactions with other medicines, foods that one may take will affect the final rate of absorption.
This rate varies between 20-40% but with injections the rate rises sharply to 90%. This high rate means higher intake of body cells that will use cocktail ingredients to stay healthy and fight off illness.
In conclusion, this treatment is a quick and effective way to channel nutrients into the body’s circulation. Who will benefit most from this treatment and why? Intravenous cocktails are used for a variety of health problems.
In general: boost the immune system, increase energy levels, detoxify the body, also provide hydration and anti-aging to the skin, help in quick hydration and rehabilitation of the body after intense athletic activity and assist in rapid recovery after a hangover or jet lag.
Significant individuals with asthma, migraine, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, muscle spasms, allergies, and respiratory infections have benefited significantly. Also people who are malnourished or suffering from some illness related to the absorption of the gastrointestinal tract.
What kind of vitamins are used and why?
There is no limit on which vitamins to use. This treatment is essentially customized according to the needs of each organism. The vitamins we use are water-soluble so once the body has used what it needs from the ingredients of the cocktail, the excess will be eliminated in the urine. The ingredients we mainly use are Vitamin C, the vitamin B complex, magnesium and calcium. Magnesium deficiency is associated with constipation problems, headaches and muscle cramps. We inject antioxidants like glutathione. Glutathione is specifically the mother of antioxidants and the mastermind in body detoxification. Also, amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins
What are the side effects?
This treatment should be carried out by qualified and certified medical personnel. It is important to obtain a complete medical history before the infusion that records the health problems, any allergies, medications taken by the individual and dietary supplements. Contraindications are a few mainly those with specific nephrological or cardiac conditions. It is possible at the injection site to create a small ink that will recede in a few days.
How long does this treatment take?
The results become apparent in 12-24 hours. The vitamins stay in the body and maintain their levels for about 3 weeks.
