Healthy Living Family Medical & Vitamin IV Therapy in Utah
At Healthy Living Family Medical, one of the services that we offer is Vitamin IV Infusions. This is a service that will benefit patients who are in need of a higher dose of some key vitamins into their cells. The key to making any vitamin or mineral supplement work for you is all about the absorption. If they can’t be absorbed well, then the uptake in the body’s cells will be very minimal. For instance, a vitamin that is taken through the mouth will get broken down in the stomach and digestive processes, so how much is absorbed is limited (usually around 30%). If the vitamin is taken through an IV or drip therapy, then the absorption rate will be much higher, at least 90%, and in some cases more. So it can be a great choice for your health and wellness.
When you have higher levels of vitamins and minerals in your body and in your bloodstream, it will lead to greater uptake in your cells. This means that there will be more nutrients to help to maintain your health and wellness, and well as be in a better position to fight illness.
The ‘cocktail’ served at our vitamin bar is made up of magnesium chloride, calcium, a highly absorbable form of vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, and vitamin C. To get Myers’ Cocktail at Healthy Living Family Medical, it will involve a fifteen minute consultation with one of our expert nurse practitioners, and then it usually will take less than an hour for the therapy to be completed. So it is quick and easy, and can really give your health a boost.
What conditions can benefit from a vitamin IV bar?
Vitamin IV therapy can be a good thing to help maintain health and wellness. However, there are a number of conditions that can really benefit from it. Conditions that have responded positively to our IV treatment include conditions like asthma, migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, chronic pain, allergies, and respiratory tract infections. That is not all, though. A number of people use IV vitamin therapy in order to get some quick rehydration after an intense sporting event. This could be a great thing to do for sports professionals or to have after running a marathon or other intense strain on the body.
How long do the effects last?
The effects that you receive from vitamin IV drips can depend on your current physical health, as well as the cocktail that has been administered. In most cases, though, the noticeable effects usually last up to four days, but they can be felt almost immediately after they have been administered. The vitamins themselves, that get administered from the drip into your body, can remain in your system for up to three weeks.
What are the risks of IV vitamin therapy?
Even when it comes to natural vitamins and minerals, you can still get too much of a good thing. However, the risks with IV therapy are very minimal. With our Myers’ Cocktail, there are some water soluble vitamins B and C. If your body already has enough of these vitamins, then they would be processed by the kidneys and come out in urine if your body has got enough in its stores.
There is a small risk of infection with IV vitamin therapy, simply because when you have an IV inserted, it bypasses the skin and blood’s natural defences against bacteria. This is why having IV therapy with qualified and experienced professionals like us is vitally important, as then this small risk can be reduced to be an even smaller risk. If you have any questions about the risks and what we do to keep you safe, then get in touch with one of our team today.
