If you’re looking for a way to make your therapy more effective or jumpstart your weight loss efforts, you’ll want to talk to your practitioner about what add-ons could suit your needs. Depending on the add-on you select, the following extras can be combined with your treatment as part of the IV cocktail or administered via injection.
The antioxidant glutathione helps strengthen your immune system, aids in repairing tissues, and supports the production of vital proteins and chemicals. Since it is an antioxidant, it also neutralizes free radicals, which reduces cell damage caused by oxidation.
When paired with a vitamin blend, glutathione intensifies the positive effects of the other vitamins in the cocktail. Often stressed or run down individuals have lowered glutathione levels and can benefit from adding glutathione to their therapy.
Lipo-C injections contain vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids that support a healthy weight loss plan. These injections stimulate metabolism and help your body maintain lean muscle while reducing body fat. Although many individuals seek lipo-C injections for their weight loss benefits, they can also boost your energy levels and improve your hair, skin, and nails.
Lipo-C injections can help you make the most of your weight loss efforts when paired with a healthy diet and exercise routine. If you’re looking for a way to ramp up your weight loss efforts or break through a plateau, you’ll want to discuss lipo-C injections with a professional at Fundamentals Med Spa.
Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B-12 that plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of your nervous system and producing red blood cells. When you have a deficiency in B-12, you can experience symptoms such as severe fatigue and neurological issues.
B-12 in the form of methylcobalamin can help increase your energy levels and improve overall health, and you can add it to your therapy every month. Pregnant individuals or those with a prior history of optic nerve damage or cyanocobalamin sensitivity will want to talk to a professional about alternative options for addressing B-12 deficiencies since this add-on is contraindicated for these individuals.
NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a crucial enzyme in every cell in your body. It’s involved in nearly endless metabolic functions, such as producing cellular energy, regulating your metabolism, and maintaining mitochondrial health. As you age, the levels of NAD+ in your body decline.
Neurodegeneration, metabolic issues, and signs of aging often accompany lowered levels of NAD+. Adding NAD+ supplementation into your therapy can raise your levels to help you avoid the adverse effects associated with declining NAD+ levels and improve exercise performance and increase insulin sensitivity.
The ideal frequency will depend on the patient’s health and the benefits they seek from therapy. You will work with a professional to establish a schedule that suits your health needs. Some add-ons can only be administered periodically.
Side effects from therapy are uncommon, and your treatment will be administered and monitored by a trained professional. Mild irritation at the injection site and a warm sensation during the treatment are possible effects, but they are usually minor and may even go unnoticed by patients.
Vitamins consumed orally are not fully absorbed. When you receive IV therapy, nutrients are sent directly into your bloodstream, allowing your body to utilize them more effectively and experience the benefits more quickly.
Don’t let vitamin deficiencies prevent you from living your best, healthiest life. Strengthen your immune system, accelerate your weight loss, or replenish depleted nutrients with IV therapy.
