Fortify Your Immune System With IV Vitamin Therapy

With coronavirus running rampant during the past year, you know it’s important for you to keep your immune system as healthy as possible. However, with the hustle and bustle of life, it can be difficult to keep your body healthy enough to ward off nasty viruses and bacteria. You can take supplements, but IV vitamin therapy is a more effective way to boost your immune system.

At ReNew Infusions in Gilbert, Arizona, our expert team offers several different therapies to optimize your health, including IV vitamin therapy. Our goal is to keep your mind and body as healthy as possible with a multitude of treatment modalities.

What is IV vitamin therapy?

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy has been around since the 1970s but has more recently gained popularity, especially with celebrities. However, you don’t have to be famous to receive this type of treatment.

Dr. John Myers created a vitamin formula, now known as the Myers’ cocktail, that’s become a popular immune boost. It contains a host of different vitamins, such as vitamin C and vitamin B12, used to help treat hangovers and certain medical conditions. There are multiple types of IV vitamin therapy and vitamin injections that you can choose from at ReNew Infusions, depending on your needs.

How does this therapy work? Traditional over-the-counter vitamins and supplements have to go through your digestive system, where they break down and aren’t completely absorbed by your body. However, when we put a vitamin dose directly into your bloodstream, the nutrients are much more effective due to the higher absorption rate.

During treatment, our providers start an IV in your arm and hook it up to a bag of fluid that’s concentrated with different types of vitamins. The therapy itself only takes an hour or less, and we monitor you during this time. Once the infusion is finished, we remove the IV, and you can go home without restrictions.

How IV vitamin therapy helps your immune system 

IV vitamin therapy has shown to be useful in several different conditions that affect not only your immune system, but other parts of your body as well. Some of the problems that this type of therapy can help, include:

IV vitamin therapy also helps you keep your immune system healthy, enabling you to fight off common ailments such as a cold or sinus infection. Traditionally, people took vitamin C pills or multivitamins to help boost the immune system. But with IV vitamin therapy, the options are endless. Our team specializes in several types of vitamin cocktail infusions, each of which has a specific therapy in mind.

IV therapy usually contains vitamin C and other nutrients such as vitamin B12, magnesium, and calcium. Vitamin B12 is critical in maintaining your immune system due to its role in red blood cell production in your body. Without the proper amount of red blood cells in your body, you don’t get as much oxygen to your cells, resulting in fatigue and weakness. 

Zinc is another important mineral that’s in our IV cocktails that help keep your body and immune system healthy. Zinc has been shown to help your body fight the common cold and help in healing wounds. It also helps you to fight off certain infections.
