St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and with it comes the huge party one of the largest festivals in the world, Savannah, GA. If you’re planning on going out for the festival, and drinking, like most people are, there are a few things you should consider, one of which is your health. Staying hydrating is the first benefit for your body’s overall maintenance in the absorption and metabolization of alcohol. But one of the little known, and often overlooked, method of metabolization is proper vitamins and nutrients that help your body to stay active and rejuvenate your system. Moderation is the key, but at festivals like these it is understood that over drinking may and will occur. So, it’s important to plan ahead for engagements like these. Always take proper precautions when planning on drinking and have a designated driver or cab option to get you home safely!
What are the benefits of IV Vitamin therapy?
The first benefit is they have an immediate effect and can last up to 3-4 days! Rehydration of the body’s 60% water level in the human body and reduced symptoms from headaches, nausea, or any pain associated with hangovers occur within minutes of treatment. IV nutrients are absorbed directly into your bloodstream for maximum benefit, so you’re not simply urinating them out as some other methods of vitamin and nutrient drinks will do.
How does IV Vitamin therapy work?
A trained expert administers a liquid mixture of saline, vitamins and minerals via intravenous injection. The connected tube delivers the solution, a cocktail of vitamins and nutrients specially formulated to give you exactly what your body needs to recover. These nutrients are delivered straight into the bloodstream, and which typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
IV Vitamin therapy is a quick, simple and effective way to boost your immune health, relieve symptoms of illness and improve your overall wellness. IV Vitamin therapy can help reverse nutrient deficiencies and relieve symptoms related to a variety of conditions, from migraines to nausea and even cold and flu symptoms.
“Building on the work of the late John Myers, MD, the author has used an intravenous vitamin-and-mineral formula for the treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions. The modified “Myers’ cocktail,” which consists of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.”
What is the Myers’ Cocktail?
The Myers’ Cocktail is a popular option due to its range of ingredients and their positive effects. It contains the following vitamins and minerals in addition to saline:
Vitamin B-Complex – This complex of vitamins plays a role in multiple bodily functions like blood sugar control, metabolism and the production of energy.
Vitamin C – This vitamin is essential for good health. Your bones, blood vessels and skin all need Vitamin C to stay healthy.
Glutathione – This is an antioxidant with several functions in the body. It helps in the formation of DNA, supports the immune system, aids in the breakdown of certain free radicals, facilitates the function of certain enzymes and regenerates Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Zinc – Is wonderful for keeping the skin healthy and even assists in the healing of wounds. It supports the immune system by activating T-cells and can even treat the common cold.
Magnesium – Hundreds of enzymes in the body rely on magnesium to work, making it essential to overall health. Magnesium helps bones and calcium absorption, and reduces migraines and maintains good heart health.
