IV Therapy for Anti-Aging and Age Management

IV Therapy for Anti-Aging has properties allowing you to look and feel better. Anti-Aging with Intravenous Therapy Drips is a popular choice for men and women. As men and women get older, their gastrointestinal tract may have difficulty absorbing nutrients like it once did. This malabsorption can cause a feeling of chronic fatigue as well as increase the risk of serious diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Additionally, the inability to properly absorb vitamins found in food and supplements can cause the skin to age prematurely. Wrinkles, sagging eyes, and frown lines set in, making some people feel despondent about their changing looks.

Many people have a tendency to passively accept the changes of aging without realizing that the cause may be as simple as a nutrient deficiency. Poor diet, lack of restful sleep, chronic stress, and a sedentary lifestyle can all contribute to premature aging as well. In addition to skin changes and vitamin deficiency, common problems of aging include weight gain, depression, irritability, digestive disorders, and catching common illnesses more often due to a weakened immune system.

Intravenous (IV) Therapy for anti-aging can help men and women look younger in addition to feeling healthier and more energetic. The reason for this is that the nutrients bypass the internal organs and go directly into the patient’s bloodstream. When a patient swallows a typical oral supplement, it goes into the gut where it takes several hours to break down. Unfortunately, the majority of the nutrients are lost through elimination and what remains may not be fully absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. With IV Therapy, 100 percent of the nutrients go to the cells.

Common Nutrients Used in IV Therapy for Anti-Aging

Some patients prefer to select a specific type of IV Therapy, such as the Myers Cocktail or High Dose Vitamin C, while others select certain nutrients that best meet their health needs. Each person undergoes a medical evaluation and receives a recommendation from a doctor before starting with the IV drips. Below are some of the most common vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients used for anti-aging purposes.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a tri-peptide that contains the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. It is most prevalent in the liver and plays an essential role in supporting the immune system. This nutrient serves as a powerful antioxidant when the body has sufficient amounts of it. Low levels of glutathione are closely associated with oxidative damage and premature aging.

Proper levels of glutathione are essential to slow the process of aging, detoxify the liver, protect the body’s cells from free radicals, and maintain a healthy immune system. Free radicals are the leftover waste products after the cells have consumed the nutrients and oxygen they need to survive. As an immunity booster, glutathione specifically increases the power of the B and T cells that are instrumental in fighting infection and disease. In a detoxification capacity, glutathione makes toxins in the body water soluble by binding with heavy metals and waste and eliminating them from the body.

Niacin

Niacin is a B vitamin that helps the skin retain moisture. Moist skin looks and feels better in addition to providing a strong barrier against bacteria and viruses. The proper balance of niacin also helps to raise good cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Having these fats in the blood causes atherosclerosis, which is a hardening of the walls of the artery that increase the risk of stroke and heart attack. A third function of niacin is converting food into energy.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps fight the damage caused by free radicals during the oxidation process. This damage is thought to be the primary cause of disease and age-related health issues. This vitamin reduces wrinkles and fine lines in addition to strengthening the bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential element for healthy skin because it offers strong anti-oxidant protection against free radicals. Even though most free radical damage is from uncontrollable environmental factors like sun damage and pollution, adequate amounts of Vitamin C can eliminate or slow the progress of aging of the skin. Some of the specific benefits it provides include:

  • Increases the production of healthy collagen for firmer skin
  • Reduces skin irritation and inflammation
  • Reduces the appearance of brown age spots and other damage from the sun
  • Increases the effectiveness of sunscreen and gives heightened protection to the skin from UV rays

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps to maintain firm, healthy skin. Specifically, it retains moisture and helps to repair dry or cracked skin. Another important function of Vitamin E is the prevention of unnecessary blood clotting. This greatly reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke. Medical researchers are currently studying the effect of Vitamin E on cancer rates as this nutrient can prevent cell mutation by stopping the damage inflicted by free radicals.

Vitamin K

Dark circles under the eyes are a common effect of aging. While many people assume they are caused by stress or lack of sleep, a deficiency of Vitamin K may be the actual culprit. This vitamin helps to constrict blood capillaries around the eyes by breaking up the tiny blood clots that have formed internally. Vitamin K is also important to maintain bone strength with aging.

People who are suffering with what they assume are age-related health problems owe it to themselves to discover the true cause. Getting the vitamins the body needs can do wonders for longevity and quality of life.
