THE SECRETS OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS BY IV INFUSION

Updated: May 7

Are you struggling for a healthy lifestyle? You are not alone, but you are in the right place.

Our fast lifestyle running for our dreams and achievements let us sometimes forget the fact that our body is a machine that works around the clock, we forget to drink, we forget to eat and we don’t pay attention to ourselves till our body starts sending us alarming signal.

Feeling tired, low energy, recurrent headache, and just not feeling well… all are signs that your body is crying for help.




The nutrition that we obtain from our industrial manufactured food is meant to provide the essential needs of our bodies but ignores the need for vitamins and minerals.

In this age of rapid and hectic life, we need to stop, take a deep breath and give our body a minute of attention.


Vitamins and minerals replenishment is essential to ensure that our body is at its best.

Many people are opted to take 10 to 15 gigantic pills daily trying to do so, but this means an endless attempt to do it inefficiently.

IV vitamins and minerals infusion are meant to replace the deficit directly into the bloodstream.

No need for those elements to go through the intestines and the liver.

VITAMINS VS MINERALS:

Minerals are simple earth elements found in nature like calcium, zinc, and manganese.

Vitamins are complex elements manufactured by living things like plants, animals, and humans. Examples are vitamin C, Vitamin E, and the famous Vitamin D.

While minerals and vitamins are not food or nutrition, they play an essential role in how our bodies handle food.

They control the metabolism of our body and regulate it.

For example, we give kids vitamin D to help the bone cells put the calcium into the bone like cement.

A lack of vitamin D will result in soft bone.


Antioxidants:

To understand how the cell work, we must think of the cell as a factory that burns food to produce energy, while doing so, it generates waste, these wastes create dust-like materials we call “radicals”.

Accumulation of radicals poisons and destroys parts of the cell, causing it to age and become unable to do its function. Ultimately it dies.

Antioxidants prevent the production of those radicals which protects the cell from aging and gives it a chance to rejuvenate.

Famous antioxidants are vitamins A, C, and E.

Antioxidants have many benefits in certain conditions like Alzheimer's disease.



SPECIAL FUNCTIONS OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS:


Nutrients are essential for our body as they play role in metabolism. However; each nutrient has its own role and job. Let’s find out a little about a nutrient role in your body:

Calcium:

Calcium aids in transmitting nerve impulses, also it helps muscles contraction. Furthermore, calcium is actively involved in cardiac rhythms. You must be taking calcium through supplements and food. But are you taking sufficient calcium to meet your needs?

Magnesium:

It is a co-factor to enzymes. Magnesium actively regulates the body's chemical reactions. Thus, improving nerve functionality and producing proteins.

Hydroxocobalamin:

It is an engineered vitamin B12. It helps the body to convert fat into energy.

It stimulates building red blood cells and used in cases of anemia.

Vitamin B:

Vitamins are vital nutrients for various body functions and have eight types. Like vitamin B6 which helps to create and maintain red blood cells. This B6 also breakdown amino acids that are at risk for our heart. Our body uses this vitamin B6 for signal transmission between nerves. This also makes your body healthy by boosting immunity. Similarly; Vitamin B12 is active in nerve signal transmission.

Lack of vitamin B12 can cause memory issues, body weakness, and numbness.

Now, folic acid B9 is the unit of DNA. B9 is the key to proper brain performance. Women with babies inside them must take it to make sure healthy brain development of the baby.

Vitamin B7 also known as Biotin improves the health of hair and nails. It is an essential ingredient in protein making.

Vitamin C: our body uses it for repairing and reshaping the tissues and cells. You can have it for glowing skin and healthier hair.

Before moving on to how we can get essential nutrients quickly, let's find out about various health issues.

Lower levels of calcium and vitamin D result in lower back pains and PMS symptoms. Insufficient magnesium causes abdominal cramps, bloating, and discomfort.

Hangovers: Anyone who consumes alcohol experiences distressful conditions. This happens due to dropping in alcohol levels in the body.
