IV Therapy for Vitamin Deficiencies
If you are like many people, you are likely deficient in vitamins and nutrition. Believe it or not, some nutrients only come from certain foods, so if you aren’t eating them, you are likely deficient.
Vitamin deficiencies can be difficult to overcome because the body’s ability to absorb vitamins from supplements and food is often affected by other conditions. For example, someone who is chronically dehydrated might need assistance meeting their vitamin needs.
If you are having issues related to vitamin deficiency, consider talking to your doctor about IV vitamin therapy. Is this right for you? Let’s see!
Common Vitamin Deficiencies
If you are not eating enough fresh fruit or vegetables, you may not be getting enough Vitamin C in your diet. This can manifest by having a poor immune system since Vitamin C is vital to your overall health.
More commonly, people are often deficient in Vitamin B. Vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common due to dietary habits. B Vitamins like folic acid can treat some kinds of anemia, while B6 is essential for a healthy metabolism.
Both Vitamin C and the B Vitamins are water-soluble therefore they are ideal for IV treatment.
What Are the Symptoms of Vitamin C Deficiency?
Common symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include:
- Decreased wound healing
- Bleeding gums
- Easy bruising
- Joint pain
- Loose teeth
- Dry hair
- Heart disease
- Recurrent infections
How Deficiencies Happen
Vitamin deficiencies can occur for many reasons including improper eating habits. If you are not eating a balanced diet with a lot of healthy vegetables and fruits in it, you are likely missing out on much-needed nutrition. Deficiency of the B vitamin is particularly common because they are not the easiest to get from food, especially if you are a vegetarian. Most sources of B vitamins come from animal sources, Vitamin B12 exclusively so.
Medical conditions can also cause vitamin deficiencies such as chronic dehydration. Even if you are properly hydrating and taking in the fuel that you need, you may be surprised to find out that you have a vitamin deficiency of some kind.
Fatigue and sluggishness that isn’t tied to a serious medical condition can be alleviated with a B vitamin therapy to give you a boost of energy.
Why IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy consists of rapidly introducing nutrients like lysine, zinc, Vitamin C, and B vitamins into your system with an IV. Introducing nutrient-dense fluids into your bloodstream can be an effective method to get you the vitamins that you need fast.
Of course, because the body doesn’t normally consume vitamins and nutrients in this manner, it is important to only have an experienced doctor or nurse perform this treatment.
IV vitamin therapy is great for people who suffer from dehydration, pregnant women, or cancer patients suffering from vitamin deficiencies, and can even aid in weight loss.
