Increasing Energy with IV Therapy

 Increasing Energy with IV Therapy

At Eastside Family Health Center, our team, led by Frank Marinkovich, MD, customize intravenous solutions for your needs. 

Benefits of our IVs include:

Bonus benefits:

Calcium and magnesium, vitamin C, various B vitamins, and L-carnitine are just a few minerals we incorporate in our IVs. Glutathione is also included. Wait, gluta- what?  Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant produced by the liver to protect against free radicals, peroxides, and heavy metals.

Calcium and magnesium are frequently addressed, primarily in bone and muscle health. Their advantages extend far beyond bones and muscles. Calcium aids sleep by facilitating the usage of the amino acid tryptophan. On the other hand, magnesium helps to maintain adequate levels of GABA and other neurotransmitters that help you sleep well.

Vitamin C is included in the IV. Many people are aware that Vitamin C boosts the immune system and helps to prevent or minimize cold symptoms. Furthermore, this vitamin aids in creating collagen, the maintenance of strong bones and teeth, and the absorption of iron in the body.

What are the benefits of B vitamins? They are frequently said to be able to boost energy levels. While this is true, they are also advantageous in various other ways—B-vitamins aid in maintaining healthy skin, cognitive function, and the production of new red blood cells.

Many nutrients can be included, but one that stands out is L-carnitine. This unique amino acid is produced in the liver and kidneys to aid in transporting fatty acids. It promotes fat usage for energy, which helps with cardiovascular health, workout recovery, and weight loss.

Extra hydration is another advantage of our IV therapy. It is very easy to become dehydrated throughout our busy lives, especially with warmer temperatures, caffeine use, and exercise. It is suggested that we drink half of our body weight in ounces of water. Personally, I find this to be a challenge! You'll get a simple boost in your hydration objectives to round out the benefits of IV solutions.
