Why Boost your Body with Nutrient IV?
Sometimes the nutrients that you get from your foods just isn’t enough for optimal health.
In order for your body to function at its best, you need to supply sufficient levels of vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients as well as amino acids, healthy fats, and carbohydrates.
Amino acids and nutrients, such as B-vitamins, vitamin C, and magnesium, can be depleted through poor diet, lack of nutrients in our soils where our food is grown, defective digestion/absorption, glycopthates (GMO foods), food sensitivities/allergies, over exertion, chronic stress, genetic variability, and over-consumption of alcohol & medications. In addition, some people have increased nutrient demands due to chronic stress, athletic performance, pregnancy or illness. Even for those who eat well, the odds are, something is missing which can lead to just feeling less than yourself or a multitude of diseases.
What are the Common Nutrient Deficiencies?
If you are fighting back feeling tired, irritable, depressed or just not at your best, your health may be less than optimal simply due to a nutrient deficiency. With a busy life-style it’s hard to get all the fruits & veggies that you need to fuel your body every day. The most common nutrients that people are deficient in include:
The most common vitamin deficiency. Vitamin B6 is needed to form your “Happy & Sleep” hormone serotonin. Deficiencies may lead to fatigue, irritability and a low mood. Sound familiar?
This nutrient is often “normal” on bloodwork but less than “optimal” for peak energy for your day. B12 helps to keep your nerves and blood cells healthy. Low levels may lead to fatigue, hair loss, numbness or tingling in your hands and feet.
This nutrient is your ticket to “zen”. Magnesium is involved in over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body and research suggests that up to 80% of us may be deficient. Deficiency of magnesium can cause fatigue, muscle cramps, tension and migraine headaches, PMS, high blood pressure and more.
Deficiency of vitamin C can cause frequent infections, including colds.
If this sounds familiar, we’ve got you covered. Although food is always best, nutrient IVs have been found be one of the most effective ways to increase and maintain your vitamin & mineral balance for health. The major goal is that once the natural products are injected, your own body’s system is stimulated to reset the body back in balance.
