Boost Your Immunity with IV Vitamin Therapy

Boost Your Immunity with IV Vitamin Therapy

You already eat a healthy diet that’s rich in fresh vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, high-quality pastured proteins, and good fats. You already exercise and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. While all those good habits help to charge up your immune system, these days you may need extra help.

The pandemic has made us all more aware of how essential a healthy immune system is to our overall health. One of the best — and fastest — ways to give your immunity a boost is to deliver vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream through intravenous (IV) vitamin drips

At Modern Wellness Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada, our team of expert providers offer a menu of IV vitamin solutions that meet your needs, both for acute situations (like recovering from jet lag or an illness) and as ongoing therapy. If you’re wondering how IV vitamin infusions help with immunity, see our guide below.

Myer’s cocktail

The Myer’s cocktail is the original IV vitamin therapy, and was developed by John Myers, MD, a physician from Baltimore, in 1948. All IV solutions contain normal saline as the main hydrating liquid. A Myer’s cocktail also contains:

Because the vitamins reach your bloodstream directly, they’re not broken down by your digestive system and can go to work immediately. Vitamin C is known to be an immune booster. The other ingredients are also essential to health. 

Most people in the United States are deficient in important vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium. You need a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to stay healthy and avoid disease.

Glutathione

Many of our IV cocktails contain glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that’s made of three different amino acids. Glutathione supports your immune system and helps to break down damaging free radicals. Glutathione also helps to regenerate vitamins C and E in your body.

NAD+

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme that helps your cells function better. You lose NAD+ as you age, and this can lead to cognitive decline and frailty. NAD+ directly impacts cell functions such as:

An infusion with NAD+ improves your energy levels, boosts immunity, and reduces the ill effects of aging.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a compound that occurs naturally in your body and acts as an antioxidant to break down damaging free radicals. Free radicals make it harder for your body to fight off infections.

Your cocktail depends on your needs

All of our IV vitamin cocktails immediately work to rehydrate your body and provide the building blocks it needs to function at its best. You notice increased energy, your skin looks healthier, and you’re better able to fight off illness and infection.

We offer a variety of IV infusions, based on your body’s individual needs. For instance, we can add extra Vitamin C or B complex vitamins if you’re feeling run down or are fighting off an infection or illness. You may choose different cocktails at different times, depending on how you feel and what your immediate and long-term health and beauty goals are.

Give your body the support it needs with an IV vitamin infusion today. Contact our office by phone at 702-463-9159 or use our online booking form.
