What Are Vitamins and How Do They Impact Your Health?

What Are Vitamins and How Do They Impact Your Health?

Vitamins are organic substances your body needs to function properly. Every cell in your body uses vitamins and other nutrients to keep you healthy. In an ideal world, you’d get all of your necessary vitamins from foods in your diet. However, stress, injury, and illness can deplete vitamin reserves and leave you feeling run down. 

Even if you’re feeling great and are in excellent health, it’s always a good idea to do everything possible to keep your vitamin stores optimal. Whether you're recovering from a hectic workweek or need a bit of recharging for sports recovery, IV vitamin therapy is the way to go. 

The team at Renew Infusions in Gilbert, Arizona, offers IV vitamin therapy to help you achieve your wellness goals. No longer are IV therapy treatments limited to hospital settings. Today, many health-conscious people take advantage of IV vitamin therapy. It’s an excellent way to get nutrients directly into your body so you can feel better faster and keep your body healthy. 

Here’s what to know about this wellness treatment.

What is IV vitamin therapy?

The Renew Infusions team offers highly customizable vitamins and other nutrients that we can deliver in convenient IV therapy. Nutrients given intravenously bypass the digestive system, allowing you to receive 100% of the benefit. 

With IV vitamin therapy, we can quickly and efficiently administer a range of nutrients including vitamins and minerals. We can customize any IV drip to suit your specific needs. 

IV drip therapy can help you recover from:

IV therapy can also help you with sports recovery and more. We can create a customized nutrient cocktail for boosting your immune system or restoring your body to optimal hydration.

What is IV therapy like?

During your IV therapy, it's our top priority to ensure that you feel at ease and have the amenities you need to feel comfortable, including blankets, TV, and Wi-Fi.

Once your treatment begins, an infusion pump will slowly drip the solution through a catheter that's inserted into one of your veins. As you recline comfortably, you can read or watch television while the nutrients are delivered directly to your body. 

An IV therapy treatment takes about 45-60 minutes. Depending on the specific nutrients being given, you may begin to feel better during the infusion. However, it typically takes a couple of days for you to start feeling the full effects.

What vitamins are included in IV vitamin therapy?

Your IV vitamin therapy is completely customized. After discussing your health goals, our team puts together a nutrient cocktail with those specific goals in mind. Different formulas serve various purposes. All drips are designed by a registered nurse or nurse practitioner. The following are some examples of vitamins found in our formulas and their benefits.

B vitamins

The B family of vitamins are crucial to your health. Take, for example, vitamin B-12. This water-soluble vitamin plays a major role in energy production and nerve function. We may include B vitamins in an energy boosting IV therapy treatment, for sports recovery, or a situation where you need to overcome fatigue.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects your cells from free-radical damage. It's known to boost your immune system and improve your memory and thinking. We may include vitamin C in an IV therapy treatment for immune boosting and overall wellness.

We aren’t limited to the use of vitamins; antioxidants such as glutathione, and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium, have important functions in the body. Magnesium, for instance, has calming effects. We may use magnesium in an anti-anxiety drip when your goal is to feel calmer in your daily life.
