IV Vitamin Therapy: the Benefits

This article was originally published at iveeapp.com, adapted for a guest post here on Loreeebee.

IV vitamin therapy…you’ve seen it everywhere from your Instagram feed to your neighborhood’s new drip lounge. But what exactly makes IV vitamin therapy so great?

IV vitamin therapy efficiently administer vitamins, minerals and medications to the body without relying on the digestive system. It delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream, making them instantly accessible by the body for use.

Offering 100% absorption, IV vitamin therapy ensures cells receive the nutrients they need to thrive. This optimal cell function promotes a number of body systems.

While there are many, here are the top 5 benefits of IV vitamin therapy.

1. Increased Wellness

Wellness includes not just your physical health, but your mental health as well. The body needs a certain level of vitamins and minerals to work at its best, however, the demands of daily life can make it difficult to get these. IV vitamin therapy delivers nutrients that the body can absorb and use immediately. Ingredients like L-Carnitine, with its memory and mood enhancing effects, and Vitamin A, a key player in brain, skin, muscle, heart and immune health, help you up your total wellness game.

 2. Illness Prevention

Many factors can take a toll on your immune health, such as stress, lack of sleep and poor diet. As immune health decreases, you are more susceptible to sickness. IV vitamin therapy strengthens your immunity by delivering the nutrients your body needs to fight off illness. Ingredients like Vitamin C, known to fight illness and stress, and Zinc, an immunity powerhouse, work preventatively to ensure illness doesn’t stand a chance.

3. Rapid Hangover Relief 

Alcohol dehydrates you, depleting your body of nutrients in the process. This dehydration results in shrunken tissue, particularly in the brain, which causes headaches and muscle aches. The liver also absorbs toxins from the alcohol, adding to your hangover discomfort. IV vitamin therapy combats these symptoms by delivering hydration through a saline solution alongside anti-inflammatory ingredients that quickly relieve pain.

4. Enhanced Beauty 

Beauty begins on the inside. Unlike topical treatments, IV vitamin therapy delivers antioxidants directly to the body, cleansing cells of free radicals that contribute to aging and tissue damage. In addition to slowing the aging process, IV vitamin therapy helps to strengthen hair and nails while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and illuminating the skin.

5.  Improved Athletic Recovery 

Any workout – from professional to amateur – exhausts the body, depleting it of nutrients and hydration. Exercise also causes muscle fatigue as well as a buildup of free radicals. IV vitamin therapy wipes these free radicals away, while restoring hydration and nutrients. Plus, amino acids decrease muscle loss and improve metabolism. With IV vitamin therapy, athletes can recover at a much faster rate, resulting in improved performance as well.

Conclusions

So, that’s what makes IV vitamin therapy so great! Everyone has different bodies with different needs. With its numerous benefits, IV vitamin therapy provides a solution for all.

Boost Your Immune System

This is a guest post by Amber Theuer, originally posted at iveeapp.com. Very appropriate these days as we battle COVID-19, 5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System gives you pointers on how to keep yourself protected.

Imagine your immune system as your body’s defense mechanism. Typically, it does a remarkable job of protecting you against invadersーmicroorganisms that cause disease. However, at times, the immune system falls short, letting an invader in, resulting in illness.

To ensure your immune system is able to perform, it’s important you make choices that strengthen it – even before you’re sick. Here are 5 ways to boost your immunity, ensuring you can remain healthy (in all seasons!).

1. Get Enough Sleep

Studies have shown that sleep and the circadian system exert a strong regulatory force on immune functions. It’s not uncommon for work and the daily callings of life to get in the way of a good night’s. However, without proper rest, your body produces fewer cytokines, proteins that target infection and inflammation. During sleep, your body both produces and releases cytokines – so get your recommended seven to nine hours in order to achieve optimal health!   

2. Eat a Healthy Diet

It’s common knowledge that a well-balanced diet is important. Studies say that optimal nutrition for the best immunological outcomes would be nutrition which supports the functions of immune cells allowing them to initiate effective responses against pathogens. Immunity begins largely with what you eat. So, eat a diet rich in fresh fruits, veggies, grains, and lean proteins – and be liberal with anti-inflammatory foods like citrus, bell peppers, garlic, ginger, and turmeric

3. Minimize Stress 

 Stress induces the production of cortisol, which in small amounts can limit inflammation and boost immunity. However, prolonged exposure to cortisol causes further inflammation, as the body becomes accustomed to its presence in the blood. In addition, stress reduces the body’s lymphocytes, white blood cells that combat infection. Limiting stress is plays a major role in fighting illness. While it may seem impossible, there are a number of simple ways to reduce stress – such as yoga, meditation, and exercise.

4. Exercise Regularly

Not only does exercise decrease stress, but it also improves defense activity and metabolic health, which in turn, positively affects the immune system. While the recommended amount of exercise varies per person, a good starting point is 30 minutes of moderate exercise five times per week.

5. Stay Hydrated

 As Larry Kenney, Phd, a professor of physiology and kinesiology at Penn State puts it, “Hydration is important because the body is comprised mostly of water, and the proper balance between water and electrolytes in our bodies really determines how most of our system function, including nerves and muscles.”  Not sure how much water to consume? Given your age and weight, this hydration calculator shows how much water you should drink per day.  

Through healthy lifestyle choices, you can build your immunity over time. That being said, IV drips are an effective way to quickly give your system a boost. If you are not receiving an adequate amount of nutrients through diet and supplements, your immune system can suffer. Unlike oral nutrient intake, IV drips deliver vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream.

With IV drips, nutrients bypass the digestive tract, meaning that you receive their effect almost instantly at a much higher absorption rate. Plus, as mentioned earlier, your body needs fluids – especially when trying to fight off illness. IV drips deliver the hydration your cells require to function at their peak. 

There is no denying that a properly functioning immune system begins with simple healthy lifestyle choices. IV drips can act as an auxiliary measure in boosting immunity. Whether you need some added support or want to take precautionary steps in fighting illness, IV drips can be a great option for enhancing immune health.

Getting an IV drip has never been easier. In no time, your immune system will be on the fast track to functioning at its best. 

COVID alert: Ivee will reopen in New York sometime in July
