You’re probably familiar with intravenous (IV) therapy. But the IV bag you see in hospitals or clinics does more than deliver medications fast. This technique is also a safe and easy way for health care professionals to provide a wide range of substances via fluids, including needed vitamins, nutrients, and electrolytes.
At Rénove Medical Spa in Kingwood, Texas, Dr. Afia Naqvi and our skilled team are proud to offer IV vitamin therapy infusions to ensure you get the nutrients you require when you need a boost. If you’ve been wondering if IV therapy is right for you, here’s what you need to know.
Understanding IV vitamin therapy
IV vitamin therapy functions in a similar way to the IVs you’ve seen on television or in a hospital. When you receive IV therapy, your health care provider inserts a thin tube — or catheter — into one of your veins. This allows fluids to flow from the IV bag through the tube and directly into your bloodstream.
At Rénove Medical Spa, we offer several different IV vitamin infusions, including Myers’ cocktail and a glutathione and vitamin C mix, known as a Glow Drip. This powerful infusion contains high doses of glutathione, a potent antioxidant. Not only do Glow Drips offer an immunity boost, but they also give your skin a healthy glow.
We also provide customized IV formulas based on your individual needs.
Before selecting the right vitamin formulation for you, we run a comprehensive blood test to determine which nutrients would most benefit you.
How IV vitamin therapy works
If you’re feeling run-down, you may turn to caffeinated drinks as a quick fix. But if you have a nutrient deficiency zapping your energy, it’s best to target the source for long-term results.
Low vitamin B levels are a common cause of lack of energy and fatigue. Unfortunately, you can have low vitamin B levels and not know it. A study published in Nutrients reveals that many men and women are low in these vitamins for two reasons: malabsorption and lack of animal products in their diet — especially among vegans and vegetarians.
So, how can an IV vitamin infusion address this? Our Myers’ cocktail comes packed with nutrients known to boost your energy levels, including various B vitamins. This formulation also includes calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C.
IV vitamin infusion can help you in other ways, including:
- Improving your energy levels
- Boosting your immune system
- Promoting your overall well-being
Our formulas can also help you achieve peak performance and improve your mental clarity.
Who can benefit from IV vitamin therapy?
Feeling run-down doesn’t have to be your status quo. When you add IV therapy to your health regimen, it can help promote your overall wellness by combating fatigue at the source. Anyone who wants to feel refreshed and rejuvenated and function at a higher level can benefit from these infusions.
