IV Nutrition 101: What Good Nutrients Can Do for You
Even if you aren’t the type of person that makes New Year’s resolutions, it’s hard not to think about your health and wellness here in the early months of the year. It’s a natural time to reflect on hitting our weight loss goals, cutting back on alcohol, or finally kicking that smoking habit. But when was the last time you thought about vitamins and nutrients?
Americans face a lot of challenges when it comes to getting enough of the right nutrients. In some cases, it’s that our busy lives don’t leave us enough time to eat right or destress properly. In others, the body simply isn’t efficient enough to extract all those vital vitamins and minerals it needs for optimal function. That’s where IV nutrition comes in.
IVs are a highly effective way to boost your health, hydration, and overall wellness goals—all while enjoying a relaxing, spa experience.
What is IV Nutrition Therapy?
There aren’t any shortcuts to total health and wellness, but IV nutrient therapy is about as close as you can get to one. Think of it as a supercharged boost to your health. At ALo Medical, we can mix personalized cocktails of nutrient-rich solutions to target your individual nutrient deficiencies or wellness goals.
Your provider can customize a treatment for you, or you can choose from a set menu of time-tested solutions for specific outcomes, like anti-aging, weight loss, or immune support. All you need is 30 to 60 minutes to relax while your chosen mixture of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients gets to work!
Does IV Nutrition Work?
Vitamin and nutrient IV therapy has demonstrated health benefits for a wide variety of goals. We’ll deliver your solution through an IV drip, straight into your bloodstream. Using this method, the nutrients are absorbed at a much higher rate than they would be going through your digestive system—90% absorption vs. 50% for food or pills.
Your provider will have a conversation about your goals, lifestyle, and medical history to ensure that we choose a safe and effective formula for you.
What Is in a Nutritional IV?
That depends on what outcome you’re seeking! At ALo Medical, we’ve put together a comprehensive menu of safe, research-based formulations for different bodies and their needs. Here are a few of our most popular cocktails, explained.
Initially inspired by the work of internal medicine specialist Dr. John Myers, this cocktail has a wide range of applications. It contains powerful antioxidants, concentrated nutrients, and a host of immune-boosting factors that make it effective for combating fatigue, muscle spasms, migraines, acute asthma attacks, allergies, chronic pain, and much more.
The ingredients are simple, but impactful:
- Vitamins C, B12, and B Complex for energy
- Calcium for bone health
- Magnesium for muscles and soft tissues
We can also modify the Myers’ cocktail to meet your needs. For example, we may change the ratios or add boosters, such as:
- Zinc for the immune system
- Glutathione for the immune system & antioxidant support
This specially curated cocktail contains a host of age-defying essential nutrients, antioxidants, and hydrating factors to keep your skin, hair, and body feeling radiant. If you’ve felt like you’ve lost that youthful glow, an anti-aging vitamin boost could be exactly what you need to reignite it.
Anti-aging formulas may contain:
- B and C Vitamins
- Glutathione (one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants)
- Amino acids like taurine
These ingredients work together to repair cells, slow down the aging process, and boost energy. Rejuvenate your body from the inside out with help from ALo Medical!
Weight Loss/Metabolism Boost Infusion
Vitamins and nutrients are powerful components of how our bodies manage weight. But no matter how much we diet or exercise, sometimes we still don’t get the right mix of what we need to keep our metabolism in the sweet spot. Because so many factors can get in the way of our body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the stomach, an IV drip can be a more effective way to get what you really need.
Basic ingredients include Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, and Taurine. We can also add targeted boosters based on your workout and weight loss targets. For example, we might use methionine inositol choline (MIC), an enzyme that targets fat, if you want to shed extra pounds. Or, we might include l-carnitine for muscle mass if you’re looking to add strength.
While not a miracle cure by any means, these treatments can help move the needle on your weight loss journey, supporting hydration, electrolyte levels, post-workout recovery, energy, and more.
So Much More to Explore
We’ve just covered the tip of the IV nutrient drip iceberg. While our patients love to come in for total wellness support, anti-aging and beauty boosts, and weight loss superchargers, we have the power to create exactly what your body needs. From issues with your libido to immune system challenges, IV nutrition can help you feel like the best version of yourself.
If you’ve tried other combinations of diet and supplements to no avail, ask the team at ALo Medical if there’s an IV nutrient therapy for you. Our providers will be happy to discuss your goals and find the perfect plan of action to get you where you want to be.
