Give Your Immune System a Fresh Start This New Year With IV Infusion Therapy

Even in San Diego, California, where the weather is sunny and beautiful most of the year, you can still get a winter cold or this year’s strain of the flu. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu virus most commonly affects Americans from October through February, but it can linger well into May. Is there anything you can do to take precautions against the common cold and the flu virus?

Fortunately, you can arm yourself against nasty winter colds and flu with our signature intravenous (or IV) therapy. At Elite Rejuvenations in Marion, Ohio, our expert medical aesthetics team recommends vitamin boosts in the form of IV therapy for your immune system. Customized vitamin infusions offer many benefits to your skin and body, including helping you stay healthy all year long.

Why IV therapy is effective

When you make IV therapy part of your preventive health care, you infuse your body with a blend of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Because the solution goes directly into your bloodstream, your body is better able to absorb more of the nutrients you need to stay healthy during cold and flu season and beyond.

The customized solution we create for your needs doesn’t have to first pass through your digestive system to be beneficial. On average, your body absorbs about 50% of the nutrients in oral supplements, while you can absorb up to 90% of the nutrients through IV drip therapy. 

In just about 30 minutes or so, while you relax comfortably at our medical day spa, your nurse inserts a small needle in your arm and allows the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to slowly flow into your bloodstream. Aside from minor discomfort during the initial placement of the needle, IV therapy is painless. 

Even more benefits

In addition to helping you stay healthy by boosting your immune system during cold and flu season, IV therapy offers many other benefits, including:

And, if you already have a cold or feel one coming on, a nutrient-rich IV drip can reduce symptoms so you feel better overall, even if you didn’t completely avoid getting sick. 

Multiple vitamins in a single drip

Another advantage of IV therapy to help boost your immune system and prevent a cold or flu from beginning or worsening is that you get multiple vitamins in a single IV therapy session. Vitamin C, B vitamins, and zinc are common ingredients in an IV drip that are meant to ward off sickness. 

Instead of taking several different oral supplements that you have to digest before they reach your cells, you get an immune system boost all at once. Most people notice the positive effects of their IV therapy about an hour after their appointment, and the immediate benefits may last 2-4 days. The underlying benefits your body receives from getting a boost of nutrients can continue long afterward.
