Getting an IV drip into your vein might sound highly clinical and only necessary in the case of an illness, but it's a surprisingly effective way to get the daily nutrients you need, too. In Los Angeles, Melanie Abeyta, RN, Holly Houk, RN, and the team at Harmony Aesthetics Center provides many types of IV therapy to optimize your energy levels and your general well-being. To find out which nutrients you're lacking, call Harmony Aesthetics Center or book a consultation for IV therapy online today.
IV therapy is a treatment used to deliver essential nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream. At Harmony Aesthetics Center, your provider identifies the nutrients that will benefit you the most and administers them in a diluted solution directly into a vein in your arm. To do this, they use an IV drip much like those that you see next to a hospital bed. You may relax and recline for an hour or so as the nutrients enter your body.
IV therapy is a unique way to get vital nutrients into your system because they surpass your digestive tract. Since they go straight into your blood, you are guaranteed to derive their benefits and feel their effects almost immediately. The effects that you get depend largely on the nutrients in your formula. However, commonly reported benefits include:
IV therapy is highly customizable, meaning you don't get an overflow of nutrients that you don't really need. For an added boost, you can add an intramuscular (IM) injection alongside your IV therapy if you and your provider at Harmony Aesthetics Center find it to be necessary.
There are numerous types of IV therapy, and your provider helps you choose one or more nutrients to put into yours. They include:
Biotin infusions help support the health and growth of your hair, nails, and skin.
Vitamin C helps keep you energized, encourages collagen growth in your skin, and research suggests it may help slow the growth of some types of cancer.
Vitamin D helps boost the strength and health of your bones.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) can help boost your metabolism. Studies suggest that it may also combat age-related cognitive decline, addiction, chronic fatigue, and other conditions.
Alternative Options for NAD:
Perhaps the most well-known combination of nutrients for IV therapy, the Myers Cocktail includes calcium, vitamin B, vitamin C, and magnesium. It helps relieve stress and gives you the energy to take on the day. You can't get an IM injection with a Myers cocktail.
Glutathione is an essential antioxidant in your body that helps protect your cells from damage. It's especially helpful as a form of IV therapy to treat symptoms of neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease.
