IV Infusion Vitamin Therapy
IV Infusion Vitamin Therapy is the process of infusing customized nutrients into the body.

This system of delivery optimizes nutrient levels at a faster rate than when compared to that of oral methods.
What are the benefits of IV Infusion Vitamin Therapy?
IV Infusion Vitamin Therapy introduces vitamins, amino acids, minerals, antioxidants as well as other nutrients into the bloodstream quickly therefore bypassing the absorption of the digestive system where the potency of the vitamin will loose its concentration.

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is an antioxidant that helps block the damaged caused by free radicals that occur when our bodies transform food into energy. Vitamin C also assists in collagen production, which is an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
Glutathione (GSH) is a naturally occurring protein that protects every cell, tissue, and organ from toxic free radicals and disease. GSH neutralizes free radicals and has the added benefit of being a powerful antioxidant because the glutathione already exists within the cell, including cells in the immune system. Throughout the stages of aging, cells begin to lose their ability to repair themselves and produce strong antioxidants, Glutathione supplementation will assist in the body’s ability to ward off disease and minimize the amount of damage free radicals to the internal components of the cells.
