Our immune system is a powerful first line of defense, protecting us from many viruses and bacterial infections every day. However, stress, sleeplessness, poor diet, and repeated exposure to pathogens can wear down your immune system, leaving you vulnerable. Over time the demands of daily life can weaken even the most robust immune system. Similarly, surgery, certain chronic conditions, and autoimmune disorders can impair the effectiveness of your immune system.
During stress and exercise our bodies use up macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbohydrates) for energy, but it will also burn through the micronutrients such as B vitamins and amino acids. Your body’s metabolism converts carbohydrates, fats, and proteins found in food into energy through a complex series of chemical reactions, which are driven by enzymes that require specific vitamin and minerals.
Often replenishing these nutrients with diet alone is difficult requiring the use of nutritional supplementation. When you do not manage this correctly, it can lead to dehydration, soreness, fatigue, injury, muscle loss, and fat gain. This IV has the essential B vitamins, and we add some important ingredients that will improve muscle recovery and help increase endurance and stamina and energy.
L-LysineLysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it is essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, lysine must be obtained from food. Lysine helps to fight Herpes outbreaks, increases growth hormone production, and helps to regulate hormone levels. Also, it aids in the production of antibodies and supports the immune system.
Methylcobalamin (B12)The natural form of B12 is better absorbed than Cyanobalamin and has been used to treat pernicious anemia and diabetic and peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B12 is an essential component for proper digestion, absorption of foods, and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is needed to make DNA. Vitamin B12 is also involved in homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism, immune function, and nerve function.
Vitamin CVitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
ZincZinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the activity of approximately 100 enzymes. It interacts with the hormone insulin to improve glucose metabolism, and is a key factor in the regulation of blood glucose levels. Zinc is necessary for the synthesis thyroid hormones and promotes wound healing
GlutathioneGlutathione is a powerful antioxidant containing the amino acid cysteine, which is needed for cellular production of energy and proper immune function. It helps remove free radicals from blood and cells before they can cause oxidative damage. Glutathione also aids in the neutralization of toxins in the liver.
B-ComplexThe B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. B vitamins are an important part of the diet and are essential to prevent many health problems. They are essential for growth, development, and a variety of other bodily functions. They play a major role in the activities of enzymes, proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body, which are important in turning food into energy and other needed substances. B vitamins are found in plant and animal food sources.
Tri Amino (Ornithine, Arginine and Citrulline)Tri Amino contains the essential amino acids ornithine, arginine, and citrulline, which are known for producing antioxidant effects and increasing protein synthesis. Tri Amino can decrease blood pressure, increase vasodilation (widening of blood vessels), increase the synthesis of nitric oxide, improve cardiovascular health as well as improve erectile function. The use of this supplement also promotes wound healing and improves kidney function/disease. It is known to enhance the release of key hormones, such as Human Growth Hormone, and reduce exercise-induced accumulation of plasma lactate and ammonia which is essential for the urea cycle.
Calcium GluconateCalcium is a mineral supplement that plays a role in many of your body’s essential functions. Your body does not produce calcium and depends on your diet intake and supplements to get its supply. Lack of calcium can lead to health problems such as osteoporosis. Your body needs calcium to help circulate blood, move muscles, and release hormones. Calcium also helps carry messages from your brain to other parts of your body.
Magnesium ChlorideMagnesium plays an important role in many of the body’s enzymatic reactions and plays an important role in neurochemical transmission and muscle contraction and relaxation and therefore has been used successfully for seizures and other muscle related problems. Magnesium acts on the vascular system to produce vasodilation – the relaxation of blood vessel walls increasing blood flow, which can help with lowering blood pressure and also preventing and treating migraine headaches.
