For the past six months, our nation has been held in the grips of a viral infection that underscores one very important point — the strength of your immune system matters.
At Health First, Dr. Jonathan Singer and our team believe that optimal health and wellness is best achieved by boosting the incredibly powerful systems that exist in the human body, including our immune systems. One of the best ways to boost this system is by providing it with the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight back, which is what we offer in our IV nutrient infusions.
Well fed, but undernourished
As a nation, we’re eating more calories than ever before: 3,600, which is a 24% increase since 1961. Unfortunately, half of these calories are empty calories, devoid of the vitamins and nutrients we need to sustain optimal health.
Diving deeper, research has found that both kids and adults in the United States have high rates of deficiency in:
- Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E
In other words, Americans rely too much on processed foods that deliver calories, but not much in the way of nutrition. This deficit can have a profound impact on our health, including our ability to stay healthy through our all-important immune system.
Replenishing your nutrients
At our practice, we offer IV nutrient infusions that address any deficiencies you may have, giving your immune system the resources it needs for healthy function.
While all beneficial vitamins and minerals play a role in your health, some rise above the others when it comes to your immune system. For example, vitamin C is one of the keys to a healthy immune response because it supports the health and turnover of your immune cells and acts as an antioxidant. Vitamins B6 and E also boost your immune system by acting as antioxidants and supporting key biochemical processes.
When you come in, we review your health and tailor your IV nutrient infusion to meet your unique needs.
The benefits of IV infusion
The reason why we prefer to administer nutrients through an IV is that we can bypass your gastrointestinal tract, which breaks down vitamins and minerals. By delivering these nutrients directly into your blood, your body can access the full power of the therapeutic dose.
This year, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your immune system is functioning well. As we head into flu season and COVID-19 still lingers, a boost to your immune system can go a long way toward protecting you against these viral infections.
