Why do people seem to get sicker in the winter? Several factors contribute to this. Winter brings us indoors, where we are in close contact with people coughing and sneezing. Also, with shorter days and longer nights, we are not exposed to the daily sunlight, with its benefits of direct Vitamin D through the skin. The Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) states that 10% of people are deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients to fight off viruses and bacteria.
Building your immunity is the most critical thing you can do to ward off viruses and bacteria, which begins in your gut. The GI tract is where vitamins and nutrients are processed directly into your cells. While a properly functioning GI tract is related to immunity and health, sometimes that’s not always the case with many of us.
The immune system can be compromised with disease and harmful bacteria that cause inflammation affecting the gut and your ability to process vitamins and nutrients that build your immune system. A visit with your doctor can help you explore ways to improve your gut microbiome. Fortunately, you can still get the vitamins and nutrients needed through Immunity IV therapy. You can find more information about our IV immunity blend here.
How Does Our Immunity Blend Work?
The immunity IV therapy bypasses your GI tract and gives you a boost directly through the bloodstream. Your body has an opportunity to absorb all that it needs to fight off infection and enhance metabolism while getting 100% of what it needs. IV therapy gives your body a chance to recover if you’ve recently had a cold or flu or feel depleted after the cold and flu have resolved.
What Is In Our Immunity Blend?
The blend includes the following vitamins and nutrients to fight off disease and the injury caused by free radicals in your body’s system:
B vitamins are necessary to help the body metabolize fats and proteins. The B-complex is a combination of niacin (B3), thiamine (B1), dexpanthenol(B5), riboflavin (B2),and pyridoxine(B6).
The B vitamins are water-soluble, so the body does not store them. They help the nervous system function properly. Each of the B-complex vitamins serves to help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose) which is used to produce energy. B6 is essential to help absorb vitamin B12 and to make red blood cells and cells of the immune system.
Many people are depleted of magnesium, partially due to diet and partially because our soil is depleted. We don’t get nearly the amount needed from just diet alone. Magnesium is an essential mineral in the body to help maintain nerve and muscle function, support the immune system, keep the heart functioning, and help keep bones strong. It aids in the creation of energy and protein. It is needed for over 300 chemical processes in the body, including regulating blood sugar.
This antioxidant supports immunity and needs energy levels while improving your strength, skin, hair, and nails. You need this amino acid to help you stay healthy, as it plays a significant role in your defense against disease. It is an important antioxidant that protects cells from damage caused by free radicals. It also helps build DNA, proteins, and other cellular processes. Usually, your body can produce its glutathione, but toxins from stress, trauma, aging, and a poor diet can rob you of this essential amino acid.
Zinc is used throughout the body as an essential mineral for the body’s defensive immune system to work correctly.
