Want to feel and look your best every day? IV therapy is a personalized solution that improves overall health, mental well-being, and even athletic performance. Your doctor administers mineral, amino acid, antioxidant, and vitamin infusions straight into your veins, bypassing the stomach and liver that would otherwise destroy and remove some of the nutrients.
This method helps you get more of this vital nourishment where it’s needed and fills many of the gaps you may have in your diet. The nutrients found in IV therapy injections offer your body many benefits right here in Northern Virginia. Let’s take a look!
1. More energy
Those on a restrictive diet such as vegan, vegetarian, or keto may be missing out on more than they think. This lack can lead to sluggishness, trouble concentrating, and even increased mistakes at home or work.
For example, those who don’t eat meat or animal products may be B12 or zinc deficient. Sublingual B12 is great, but it doesn’t all make it into the bloodstream. IV therapy injections do. Getting enough zinc and B12 help you maintain more agreeable energy levels.
On the other end of the spectrum, a person adhering to the keto or another very low carb diet is likely missing out on many vitamins and nutrients, which may lead to fatigue or other health issues. Vitamin therapy makes up for that lack without carbs that would influence your ability to stay in ketosis.
2. Improved immunity
IV therapy includes nutrients that boost immunity.
In addition to influencing energy, Vitamin C and zinc improve immune functions so your body is more prepared to fight infection and get better faster—or not get sick in the first place.
3. Fewer headaches for those with migraines
If you suffer from frequent migraines, it may be what you’re eating—and what you’re not. Lack of zinc, magnesium, or other minerals could be contributing to the severity of your headaches. Getting a regular dose of vitamin therapy in Ashburn may help.
4. Slow the aging process
Collagen is responsible for maintaining the fullness and firmness of skin. However, as you age, you produce less collagen, and skin begins to thin, wrinkle, and lose its elasticity and luster.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that you can receive as part of your customized IV therapy. It helps your body get rid of toxins, protecting the existing collagen from free radicals in the environment. In combination with other vitamin therapy, it can restore and help you maintain a more youthful look.
And speaking of slowing the aging process, in addition to helping with toxin removal, Glutathione has also demonstrated an ability to reduce liver damage in those with alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
5. Stronger bones
As we age, bone density becomes more of a concern. But building strong bones that will reduce fracture risk later in life should start when we’re much younger, long before we start thinking about falls.
Adding minerals such as magnesium, which is important for calcium absorption, to your IV therapy injections in Loudoun County could help you build and retain stronger bones for a lifetime.
6. Faster recovery after a workout and more
Ensuring you have the right amino acids to build and repair muscle is essential. Many athletes trust IV therapy to help them stay in the game and get back in it faster after an injury.
These same aminos and other nutrients can also help you recover from surgery, an illness that keeps you in bed, jet lag, or even a hangover. It’s amazing what the body can do when it has the right tools with which to work.
7. Improved mood and mental state
When our bodies lack the nutrients they need, they let us know physically and psychologically. Hormones can get out of whack. Appetite may be affected. Fatigue may impact our desire to get up and do things we normally love to do. Anxiety and depression may even develop.
You shouldn’t stop taking medications without speaking with your prescribing doctor, but you may find that getting vitamin infusions improves certain conditions.
8. Reduce effects of some diseases
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that can slow the progression of systemic diseases such as peripheral neuropathy caused by diabetes. Antioxidants may improve how well you tolerate cancer treatments.
Is IV therapy right for you?
It’s important to note that certain types of IV therapy infusions could be dangerous for people with conditions such as advanced heart disease or advanced liver disease. You should always talk with a doctor about your health before beginning infusions. The safest way to get these infusions is under the supervision of a licensed practitioner.
