How IV Vitamin Therapy Can Boost Your Immune System

Delivering crucial vitamins directly to your bloodstream is an effective way to boost your immune system and improve your health. Oral vitamins are susceptible to reduced absorption, whether in tablet, capsule, or liquid form. With intravenous vitamins, your body receives 100% of the administered dose.

In this blog, the health professionals at PharmXhealthOne, with locations in Wellington, Boynton Beach and Port Saint Lucie, Florida, explain what IV vitamin therapy is and how it can help you.

What is IV vitamin therapy?

You can do everything right with your diet and still have less than optimal levels of certain vitamins. When your goal is to achieve optimal levels of immune-boosting vitamins, IV vitamin therapy can help.

With IV vitamin therapy, critical vitamins are put directly into your bloodstream through an infusion. Once the infusion starts, the vitamins in the infusion rapidly circulate throughout your bloodstream and are transported to the cells where they're needed. This type of therapy makes vitamins available for immediate use.

In contrast, when you consume foods or take supplements, a complex digestive process takes place before the nutrients reach the small intestine where they're absorbed into the bloodstream. By the time oral vitamins go through this digestive process, only a fraction of them are absorbed into the bloodstream. Nutrients administered through IV vitamin therapy, however, bypass the digestive system and are fully absorbed.

Why is IV vitamin therapy needed?

The immune system relies on an optimal supply of certain nutrients to function at its best. Any decline or deficiency in vitamins, minerals, or other important nutrients can cause health complications.

A number of things can cause a deficit in critical vitamins and minerals. A poor diet, the natural aging process, and today's busy lifestyles can deplete the immune system and the nutrients it depends on.

A comprehensive vitamin infusion can provide key cellular ingredients to boost your energy, strengthen your immune function, and rejuvenate your mind and body.

What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

At PharmXhealthOne, we customize treatments to give our patients the vitamins they need. Our specially crafted infusions have been individually researched and optimized to provide you with the nutrients you need to restore balance and enhance your overall wellness. Depending on what you need, we have IV therapies that can:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Boost your energy
  • Fight stomach flu
  • Repair and rejuvenate your body
  • Restore cellular balance

For example, our immune-boosting IV therapy consists of crucial vitamins your immune system needs to function optimally, such as B-complex vitamins, vitamin B12, and vitamin C. Intravenous vitamin C is one of the most-studied nutrients shown to boost the immune system.

Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant and antiviral properties that have been shown to suppress inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor alpha. These cytokines play a role in provoking inflammation. Suppressing these inflammatory cytokines, therefore, can help protect cells from damage.

Vitamin C may also help improve symptoms of colds and flus and help reduce the duration of illnesses. And B vitamins can help supercharge the immune system.
