Your IV vitamin therapy may consist of one or more vitamins. For many of our patients, our practitioners compile an infusion of multiple vitamins, helping deliver wellness and health as quickly as possible. Available vitamins and nutrients include:
While the majority of calcium is located in the bones and the teeth, it is also required for blood coagulation, nerve function, production of energy, the beating of the heart, proper immune function and muscle contraction. Additional research suggests that calcium may help to reduce the risk of colon cancer. Calcium supplements should be avoided by prostate cancer patients.
A critical co-factor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body, magnesium aids in the body’s absorption of calcium and also plays a key role in the strength and formation of bones and teeth. This means that those at risk for osteoporosis can benefit from taking magnesium. Magnesium is vital for maintaining a healthy heart and also aids in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. Magnesium also works to keep muscles properly relaxed and can be especially beneficial to fibromyalgia patients.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is a type of nutrient that blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C also helps build and maintain tissues and strengthens the immune system and can also decrease total and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides to help protect against heart disease.
Frequently used in combination with other B vitamins to help maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells. It is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. It exists in most animal foods, hence vegetarians and vegans should take a B12 supplement.
Also referred to as vitamin B9, folic acid helps the body make healthy new cells. Everyone needs folic acid, but it is especially important for women who may get pregnant, as it can prevent major birth defects of her baby's brain or spine. Essential for DNA synthesis and detoxifies hormones.
Also known as B7, Biotin is reputed to be beneficial for healthy hair and skin. Other benefits of B7 include treating muscle pain. Biotin is involved in the metabolism of fats & protein. Biotin is made by the gastrointestinal tract and has antibacterial properties. Biotin increases insulin sensitivity, strengthens nails and is used in energy metabolism.
Also known as Vitamin B6, the processing of carbohydrates (sugars and starches) in the body depends on availability of this crucial vitamin. Pyridoxine is particularly important in facilitating the breakdown of glycogen stored in muscle cells, and to a lesser extent, in the liver. Further, because of its key role in the formation of new cells, pyridoxine is especially important for healthy function of connective tissue that regenerates itself quickly.
Also known as vitamin B5, pantothenic acid helps the body extract energy from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also helps to metabolize fats and produce red blood cells and hormones from the adrenal gland. It has been shown that Vitamin B5 might be useful in treating rheumatoid arthritis, and to help lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is literally required in hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the human body. It is essential in the metabolism of carbohydrates (to produce energy), fats, and proteins. It also helps with the production of hydrochloric acid, needed for proper digestion. Additionally, vitamin B3 facilitates the body's ability to eliminate toxins and has positive effects on cholesterol levels.
Also known as vitamin B2, it plays an important role in releasing energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It is a water-soluble vitamin needed to activate vitamin A, vitamin B3 (niacinamide), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), and vitamin B9 (folic acid) as well. Finally, it is also important for red cell production and helps to maintain the integrity of red blood cells, healthy eyes, and nervous system function.
Also known as Vitamin B1, thiamine helps the body cells convert carbohydrates into energy, aids the nervous system, and supports nerve health. It also helps body adapt to stress and avoid adrenal burnout.
Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the activity of approximately 100 enzymes and it plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence and is required for proper sense of taste and smell. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
Two forms are important in humans: Vitamin D2, which is made by plants, and Vitamin D3, which is made by human skin when exposed to sunlight. The major role of Vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D helps to improve bone health and decrease fractures. It may also help with blood pressure, cancer and other diseases.
Taurine is an amino acid and has many fundamental biological roles, such as conjugation of bile acids, antioxidation, osmoregulation, membrane stabilization and modulation of calcium signaling. It is essential for cardiovascular function, and development and function of skeletal muscle, the retina and the central nervous system.
L-Cysteine may be useful for inflammatory conditions, anti-aging, asthma, alcoholism, chemotherapy, cigarette smoking, diabetes, burns, chemical sensitivity, liver disease, emphysema, psoriasis and Wilson’s disease. L-Cysteine is a component of insulin, skin, hair and Glutathione. It detoxifies chemicals and has antioxidant properties.
Most of your potassium is found inside the cells in your body, while only about two percent is found in your blood. Your body likes to keep the amount of potassium in your blood at a certain level, but it may fluctuate due to kidney disease, diabetes, vomiting, as a side effect to certain medications, fluctuating hormone levels, or the amount of potassium in your diet.
An antioxidant used by the body to assist in many chemical processes. It is also an important element that helps the body deal with heavy metal toxicity, especially mercury. Selenium and Vitamin E are synergists (they work together) and provide the body with powerful antioxidant protection from free radical damage. Free radical damage has been linked to the development of cancer, heart disease, arthritis and rapid aging. Selenium also plays a role in the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland and immune system.
Considered the “mother of all antioxidants,” glutathione is an important chemical that acts as a powerful antioxidant to preserve and protect the brain and other body tissues by protecting them from the damage of free radicals. It also acts to recycle vitamins C & E, which also reduce free radicals. It has been used to treat all symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke, ALS, irritable bowel, and chronic fatigue. Glutathione has tremendous detoxifying ability throughout the entire body. Glutathione helps to reduce melanin stimulation, which may lead to a lightening of the skin. Glutathione helps decrease inflammation, muscle fatigue, and is involved in liver detoxification and immune function. People with Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, neurological illness, and with heavy metal poisoning may benefit from IV glutathione injections, as well as people with stress and fatigue.
