How can Vitamin C help prevent colds, flu and protect against viruses

How Does Vitamin C Work?

High doses of key nutrients, such as vitamin C, have been shown to be beneficial for both prevention of colds and flu as well as reducing the duration of colds and flu. All infections and toxins cause illness/disease through creating “reactive oxygen species” or ROS.  Here’s one way to explain: Think of the toxin or damaged tissue as a fire. You have a bucket, and the creek is just over there.  You fill the bucket, dump the water on the fire, and ssppooof! Out goes the fire. In this analogy, the water molecules are electrons and the bucket is vitamin C.  So, in the end, it’s all about the flow of electrons; vitamin C ensures electron flow and healthy tissue.

A cold or flu can pose serious risks for older adults or those with compromised immune systems and can lead to potentially fatal infections such as pneumonia, which kills more than 50,000 Americans yearly. In fact, respiratory infections, influenza, and pneumonia are leading causes of death in people over the age of 65 across the globe.

IV Therapy

Are you trying to kick a cold, have a lack of energy, or suffer from chronic inflammation or pain? Incorporating Intravenous Vitamin/Nutrition Therapy (IVNP) or IV Therapy to your regular health regimen may provide you the additional support you’re seeking. IV therapy is a medical treatment where vitamins, minerals, and other naturally occurring nutritional substances are infused directly into your bloodstream having an immediate impact on your body and overall health.

Benefits of IV Therapy

You may be taking oral vitamins and minerals today to supplement what you’re receiving through your diet. However, when supplements are taken orally, the stomach and digestive tract breakdown the nutrients lowering your body’s absorption of these key elements. Some studies suggest that IV therapy may increase the absorption of vitamins and minerals by 40% from those taken orally.  IV nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream, avoiding this breakdown.

Difficulty absorbing nutrients from food and supplements leads to reduced cellular function, an increase in illnesses, slow recovery from workouts, and even an increased risk of injury. Research has shown that high blood nutrient levels, only achievable through IV infusions, can aid your body in ridding toxins, balancing hormones, boosting immunity, relieving stress, and brightening or clearing your complexion.

Conditions That Can Benefit From IV Therapy

IV therapy is an individualized way to address a number of conditions ranging from asthma, heavy metal toxicity, and migraines to overall pain management. Nutritional IV therapy can positively benefit a number of patient concerns including the following:

IV therapy may be the missing piece in your health and wellness journey. Whether you are currently fighting an illness or seeking ways to influence your overall vitality, there is always a place for IV therapy.
