IV Nutrition for Wellness and Repair
The Need for IV Nutrition
The need for IV nutrition has never been greater. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated two billion people, approximately 30 percent of the global population are deficient in one or more crucial micronutrients. As a result, countless people suffer significant and long-lasting health issues.
But, science has offered a better way. IV nutrition provides a means to live a healthier life with a nutrient absorption system you can trust.
Nutritional deficiencies can complicate illness. Moreover, they increase your cancer risk because of DNA damage and neuronal decay in the central nervous system. Also, nutritional deficiencies trigger premature aging.
What to Know About IV Nutrition
As we age, our cells can become damaged. And, their ability to maintain health can diminish. Therefore, our goal at Vitality Medical Center is for your cellular health to be optimal so your body can function at its best level.
Decreased cellular health can contribute to cancer through DNA damage, neuronal decay in the central nervous system, and premature aging. Some of this cellular decline is due to improper absorption of nutrients during the digestive process. As a result, many who thinkn they are eating for health aren’t getting the health benefits they think they are.
However, with intravenous IV treatments we can bypass issues with oral administration. This includes upset stomach, absorption issues, and potency loss. In addition, very large doses can be administered via IV without gastrointestinal side effects, which can limit dosing. Certainly, providing these nutrients intravenously (IV) is the most effective way of correcting the essential vitamin and mineral intracellular deficits. To clarify, this is because the nutrients are delivered directly to the bloodstream, bypassing any obstacles in the digestive system that would block direct absorption.
Nutrafuse IV Nutrition
Vitality Medical Center offers our patients the NutraFuse line for nutritional IV support. NutraFuse gives your body an array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, chelating agents, and trace elements for a whole-body, micronutrient tune-up.
For example, each IV Infusion contains the following ingredients:
Magnesium Chloride – is a mineral that your cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and heart need to be healthy and strong. Also, improves metabolism and nutrient absorption.
Calcium Chloride – is a mineral that keeps your bones, muscles, teeth and nerves strong. And, it plays an important role in preventing diseases like obesity and colon cancer.
Selenium – acts as a powerful antioxidant, may reduce your risk of certain cancers. Also, it protects against heart disease, helps prevent mental decline, is important for thyroid health. Further, it boosts your immune system and may help reduce asthma symptoms.
Pyridoxine – has been shown to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression, improve brain health and reduce risk of Alzheimer’s. Further, it improves and prevents anemia by aiding hemoglobin production; improves symptoms of PMS; and reduces nausea. Also, it prevents clogged arteries and reduces heart disease risk. Moreover, it enhances eye health and prevents eye diseases. Also, it decreases inflammation associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
More IV infusion ingredients include:
Dexpanthenol – acts on the gastrointestinal tract and increases lower intestinal motility.
Hydroxocobalamin – a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Also, Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. Also, it is important for normal blood, cells, and nerves.
B Complex – helps prevent infections. And, helps support or promote: cell health, growth of red blood cells, energy levels, good eyesight, healthy brain function, good digestion, healthy appetite, and proper nerve function.
Glutathione – is the body’s primary antioxidant and reduces oxidative stress. Also, it improves psoriasis and reduces cell damage. Further, it boosts insulin resistance in older individuals and increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease. Also, it reduces symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. And, it may help fight against autoimmune disease.
Vitamin C/Ascorbic Acid – is a strong antioxidant that may reduce risk of many chronic diseases. Also, it supports proper blood pressure, fights heart disease and may prevent Gout attacks. Moreover, it helps prevent iron deficiencies by improving iron absorption. And, it boosts immunity by helping white blood cells function more efficiently. Further, it protects memory and thinking.
Normal Saline – used to prevent dehydration.
This kind of nutrition cocktail gives your body what it needs to make it through each day and days to come with energy, focus and efficiency.
NAD+ IV Nutrition Therapy
Combining the power of NAD+ with IV therapy improves wellness. In addition, it provides a holistic treatment for patients suffering from chronic disease or other health issues.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential molecule in your body. It resides in every single cell. And, it contributes to more chemical reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule.
NAD+ keeps your neurological system and organs functioning at their best. It does this in two main ways. First, it converts nutrients into ATP (the energy currency of each cell). Second, it teams-up with proteins to complete crucial biological processes like:
- Epigenetically modulated gene expression
- Immunological functions
- DNA repair
- Mitochondrial function
- Intracellular calcium signaling
- Maintaining chromosomal integrity
- Posttranslational modifications
The aging process gradually reduces the body’s NAD+ levels. Likewise, research shows that overeating and immoderate alcohol consumption can also contribute to a decline in NAD+.
The problem with decreasing levels of NAD+ is the subsequent health issues that result. For instance, premature skin aging, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, and loss of sight.
NAD+ IV nutrition therapy restores the levels of this fundamental molecule via liquid IV administration. As a result, NAD+ infusions deliver high-concentrations of this essential molecule helping to boost both current and future health.
NAD+ IV Infusion Delivers 100 Percent Bioavailability
IV infusion of NAD+ allows patients their best chance at effective absorption. Most importantly, an IV infusion delivers 100 percent bioavailability. Pill supplements can offer NAD+. However, it is extremely challenging to absorb NAD+ across the gastrointestinal tract.
NAD+ administered intravenously, allows the NAD+ to bypass the digestive system entirely. As a result, the NAD+ reaches your body’s cells directly for better absorption. Therefore, better absorption means patients can get results more quickly, accelerating healing.
Above all, delivering nutrients directly to the bloodstream insures that you are getting the nutrients you think you are getting.
IV nutrition therapy with NutraFuse supports:
- Chronic fatigue
- Muscle pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Heart disease
- Immune deficiency
- Food sensitivities
- High blood pressure
Eliminating even one of the above conditions greatly enhances your quality of life. Certainly, by eradicating more than one of these conditions you can start to see many benefits IV nutrition therapy can add to day-to-day living.
The Many Benefits of NAD+ IV Therapy
Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) shows several unique benefits of NAD+ IV Therapy. “Recent studies have shown that enhancing NAD+ levels can profoundly reduce oxidative cell damage in catabolic tissue, including the brain. Therefore, promotion of intracellular NAD+ anabolism represents a promising therapeutic strategy for age-associated degenerative diseases in general, and is essential to the effective realization of multiple benefits of healthy sirtuin activity,” the NIH said. Moreover, according to their research, NAD+ has been shown to:
- Sharpen brain function.
- Regulate metabolism.
- Improve concentration, memory and mood.
- Propel DNA repair.
- Provide energy at a cellular level to combat fatigue.
- Support cell regeneration and healing.
- Delay aging.
- Clearer skin.
- Thicker nails and hair.
- Promote wellness and vitality.
Nutritional IV treatments are especially effective because they bypass problems with oral administration, like upset stomach, absorption issues, and potency loss. Likewise, very large doses can be administered via IV without gastrointestinal side effects,which can limit dosing.
What to Expect
IV nutrition therapy is typically broken into 15-60 minute sessions delivering nutrients customized for your body’s unique needs. However, the number of sessions needed varies depending on your symptoms/conditions.
At the beginning of each session, an IV line will be carefully inserted into your arm. Patients will feel a small pinch at this point of treatment. But, then they can then relax and let the infusion go to work. You may feel a small area of tenderness around the injection site, some slight swelling of the vein or fatigue following an infusion.
