How Do Zinc, Glutathione, and Vitamin C Benefit You?

We are all relatively familiar with the flu – the coughing, sneezing, body aches, fever, and restless nights. With the Coronavirus taking the world at such an alarming pace, staying on top of your wellness and maintaining a strong immune system has never been more important. So, how can IV Therapy help you achieve this?

Let’s start by discussing the benefits of staying hydrated. Dehydration can deplete your organs, lower your energy levels, and cause chronic fatigue. It can also lead to issues such as headaches, dizziness, lethargy, and constipation. But did you know that dehydration directly impacts the immune system?

When you’re dehydrated, the overall volume of blood and lymphatic fluids that are integral to the immune system response is reduced. This can lead to inflammation, water retention in your tissues, and a weakened immune system. Without proper hydration, your body can’t work efficiently, deal with blood flow, or effectively remove waste from the body.

IV hydration can help you avoid the risks of dehydration in as little as 30 minutes. IVs are based on a liter of fluid, which is equivalent to two gallons in the system. This hydration bypasses the GI tract and goes directly to your vital organs, where your body needs it the most.

But hydration is just the beginning. You can try other components that can further benefit your immune system, such as Vitamin C. Myers Cocktail and High C Drip are two popular options for boosting the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates the production and function of white blood cells, helps the body produce antibodies, and is essential for a healthy immune system response. It can also decrease cold symptoms and length of sickness, delay disease and cancers, and promote healthy aging.

Another beneficial component is Zinc. Zinc is a trace mineral that helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 enzymes. It is essential for a healthy immune system, and deficiency can occur if you don’t consume enough in your diet. One should get a maximum dosage of Zinc at 1mL. Zinc is known for controlling and regulating immune responses, attacking infected or cancerous cells, reducing the duration and severity of cold symptoms, reducing the risk of inflammatory diseases, preventing cellular damage, and preventing and treating pneumonia.

Lastly, we have Glutathione, a strong antioxidant. Glutathione acts as a cellular defense that allows the body to fight and prevent infections and diseases. Our white blood cells, which are responsible for fighting off disease, need an abundant supply of Glutathione to effectively protect us from viruses. One should get a maximum dosage of Glutathione at 10mL. Glutathione boosts white cell production to fight infections, protects us from viruses, treats diseases related to the brain, and helps those with suppressed immunity.

In conclusion, staying hydrated and incorporating components like Vitamin C, Zinc, and Glutathione into your routine can significantly boost your immune system. With the current global health crisis, it’s more important than ever to prioritize your wellness. So, why not IV Therapy a try?
