Gone are the days when IV drip therapy treatment was limited to hospital patients. Today, healthy people enjoy IV infusions to get the vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and even medications they need to feel better and maintain optimal body functioning. Your Nova Vita Wellness Centers specialists can help determine if IV vitamin therapy is right for you and determine which ingredients align with your wellness goals. Healthier skin, boosting your immune system and curing that Sunday-morning hangover are some health issues IV vitamin infusions promise to solve or improve. Other benefits of IV vitamin therapy include:
Most efficient way to get nutrients in your body
When you take traditional oral supplements, nutrients enter your digestive system, where they are processed for absorption before entering the bloodstream. Besides the process taking much time, it lowers the amount of vitamins your body absorbs. But IV vitamin infusions deliver nutrients directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. Therefore, the supplements are immediately available in the bloodstream. The body also absorbs up to 90% of the nutrients, making this an effective way to get essential nutrients.
Promotes weight loss
Losing weight is never the most effortless undertaking, so some people may resort to IV therapy to boost their weight loss efforts. IV therapy designed to complement your weight loss journey consists of three supplements, including:
Carnitine. This amino acid changes fat to fuel; it delivers fats to the mitochondria, where it is broken down to provide energy. Although carnitine is an essential nutrient, meaning we can get enough from our diet, some people cannot. They include vegans and people with medical conditions that inhibit nutrient absorption.
Healthcare professionals may combine carnitine and B12 and deliver the compound via a syringe to promote weight loss.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that promotes metabolism in the body. This compound works with mitochondria to boost metabolism, eliminate toxins, prevent inflammation, and reverse oxidant damage due to aging. Our bodies naturally synthesize this compound in small amounts; thus, IV infusions with these supplements improve metabolism.
Although IV therapy can help you lose weight, it does not replace other weight loss methods like exercising and eating healthy food. The treatment only complements your weight loss efforts but does not replace them.
Eliminates your body of unwanted toxins and free radicals
More than just delivering essential nutrients in your bloodstream, IV drip therapy cleanses your body of toxins and free radicals that damage body cells and promote aging signs. The most popular antioxidants healthcare providers use include:
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that needs no introduction; it boosts your immune system, maintaining your overall well-being. It also neutralizes free radicals in your body before they can damage the cells.
- Alpha-lipoic acid
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant known for its weight loss benefits, but it can also protect your body from cell damage caused by free radicals.
It is an antioxidant with many benefits, including lowering free radicals, cleansing the liver of unwanted toxins, and improving symptoms of Parkinson’s and fatty liver disease.
