Vitamins are an essential feature of any healthy lifestyle. They are responsible for helping you resist infections, giving you energy, and keeping your mind and body sharp. Get too little of these nutrients, and you could end up feeling worn down and sick. In fact, according to one study, vitamin deficiencies lead to chronic diseases.
That’s what Privé I.V. is all about, giving your body the essential vitamins it needs so that you can go through every day feeling your absolute best. With the right vitamins and minerals, you can develop stronger bones, heal wounds, repair cellular damage, convert food into energy, and so much more.
In this blog, we cover some of the most important vitamins included in our IV treatments and why they are needed.
Vitamin B12 is one of those all-around vitamins that’s essential for your overall health but that your body doesn’t produce. It’s found in animal products and other foods, but most of us don’t get as much as we need.
However, when you get enough Vitamin B12, you can expect:
- Increased energy and vitality
- Improved heart health
- Healthier nervous system
- Improved oral health and eyesight
- Better memory and less chance of dementia
- Improved gut health
More than 40% of the U.S. population doesn’t get enough Calcium in their diet, and that’s a huge problem. Not only is Calcium essential for strong bones and teeth, your heart and nerves also require Calcium to function at their best. Calcium, in conjunction with Vitamin D, can also help protect against high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes.
Most adults need around 1,000 mg of Calcium per day, which usually requires a multivitamin or IV treatment. The key is to look for a supplement or treatment that optimizes Calcium for bioavailability.
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for your body. It’s responsible for helping your body absorb calcium, which is essential for bone health. Vitamin D can also keep you from getting sick, reduce bone and back pain, and prevent hair loss.
Most often, people gain Vitamin D by getting at least 15 minutes of sunlight a day, but that’s not always possible. In foods, it can be found in fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified foods. However, to get the recommended 800IU a day, an IV treatment is your best bet.
Iron is an essential part of every healthy lifestyle. It’s important for increased energy, better brain function, and healthy red blood cell production. Iron is especially important during times of development and growth, for example, when going through puberty or experiencing pregnancy or having your menstrual cycle. Around 18 mg of Iron a day is a good place to start, and the amount of iron you need may vary.
Vitamin A is important for cell growth and development. This means it plays a crucial role in healthy skin, nails, hair, bones, and teeth. It can even help prevent some types of cancer (including lung cancer) and improve your eyesight. Vitamin A can even reduce your risk of acne and other skin issues.
Magnesium is best known for improving our bone health and helping with energy production. It is also known for reducing stress, calming our nervous systems, easing sleep problems, regulating nerve and muscle function, balancing blood sugar level, and making protein. It is also responsible for our DNA and bones.
Unfortunately, many people are deficient in Magnesium because it can be hard to get through food (pumpkin, spinach, artichoke, tofu, and nuts are the best options). The NIH recommends 300-320 mg of Magnesium a day.
Zinc is the ideal vitamin for people under a lot of stress—basically everyone. It supports a healthy immune system, aids in wound healing, and helps your body gain energy from carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Zinc is also vital for memory health and other age-related diseases.
You can find Zinc in foods such as tempeh, brown rice, spinach, oysters, and tahini. It’s recommended that you get at least 8-11mg of Zinc daily.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in your immune system function and health. It’s a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and helps fight signs and symptoms of aging. Vitamin C also helps with the growth and development of body tissues, including collagen, cartilage, bones, and teeth.
If you want to maintain a healthy metabolism, then Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) is the vitamin for you. It is a powerful tool for maintaining normal digestion and appetite. It also improves nerve function, brain and heart health. And when you’re dehydrated, Vitamin B1 can help electrolytes flow into and out of your muscles and nerve cells. Some athletes even use Thiamin to help improve their performance.
