IV Vitamin Therapy
IV Nutrient Infusions for the delivery of vitamins and minerals.
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a safe, minimally invasive way to get your body the vitamins it needs to function at peak performance.
Not only does IV therapy provide energy-boosting, immune-strengthening vitamins fast, but it has a 99% absorption rate. That means your body can use every drop of every vitamin, not watered-down versions like you find in capsules or tablets.
Whether you’re suffering from chronic fatigue or a cough that just won’t go away, Midtown Movement encourages you to try our IV vitamin therapy for full-body rejuvenation. Call now to learn more.
B Vitamins: Supporting Cell Health
There are 8 vitamins in the B vitamins family:
- Thiamin (vitamin B-1)
- Riboflavin (vitamin B-2)
- Niacin (vitamin B-3)
- Pantothenic acid (vitamin B-5)
- Vitamin B-6
- Biotin (vitamin B-7)
- Folate (vitamin B-9)
- Vitamin B-12
(We know, the numbers are confusing.) Each of these vitamins plays an important role in cell functioning. A deficiency or condition causing low levels of B vitamins can have serious implications on the body. For example, someone with thiamin (B-1) deficiency might experience weight loss and memory problems, while someone who has low levels of niacin (vitamin B-3) might feel depressed or fatigued.
Some medications, certain gut conditions, and heavy alcohol use can all cause B vitamin deficiency.
Vitamin C: Protecting Your Body Against Free Radicals
Vitamin C plays a vital role in your body’s healing process, but it also protects you against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, and even eye problems. High levels of vitamin C act like a shield, protecting you from harmful free radicals that are present all around you, every day, waiting to enter your body.
Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, and they’re found in UV light, toxic chemicals, and cigarette smoke, among many other places.
Thankfully, vitamin C is an antioxidant that can counteract the harmful effects of free radicals on the body. But you have to have enough of the vitamin in your body to be protected. If your diet lacks fruits and vegetables, or if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, smoke, or have an overactive thyroid gland, you may be at risk of vitamin C deficiency.
Glutathione: Repairing Tissues and Building Proteins
Glutathione is well-known for antiaging and skin brightening properties, but its benefits definitely aren’t limited to the skin. This vitamin also has strong antioxidative properties, which can help athletes recover from physical stress and trauma.
Glutathione has even been found to help treat heart and liver conditions.
Myers’ Solution: Doing All of the Above
Myers’ Solution (also known as Myers’ Cocktail) is a precise formula containing several vitamins and minerals and delivered at once.
The solution is named after Dr. John Meyers, who used it to treat patients with a variety of conditions, including asthma attacks, chronic fatigue, and migraines. A Myers’ Cocktail consists of B vitamins, Vitamin C, glutathione, calcium, and magnesium.
Who’s the best candidate for IV vitamin therapy?
Anyone who is over 18 and gets the go-ahead from their doctor can receive IV vitamin therapy. If you don’t have a primary care physician or other doctor you see often, an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) On site will speak with you about the best course of action.
People with certain conditions or lifestyles can benefit greatly from IV therapy. These groups include:
- People who engage in strenuous physical activity on a regular basis
- People with certain medical conditions, like chronic fatigue or hyperthyroidism
- People who were recently in an accident, such as a car crash
- People who recently underwent cosmetic or other surgery
IV therapy has become popular among people who regularly drink excessive amounts of alcohol.
While this type of therapy can certainly provide the hydration and replenishment your body needs after a night of drinking, it’s best to receive IV therapy on a regular basis, not just the day after a big party.
What can I expect in a session?
The IV infusion process usually takes between 30 and 90 minutes. You’ll take a seat in our comfortable treatment center, then a licensed health professional will clean and disinfect your arm.
They will then insert the needle, connect the IV bag, and make sure you’re comfortable. They’ll check on you several times throughout the process.
