IV boost enhances athletic performance. Athlete’s bodies consume a large amount of nutrients on a daily basis. In order for their bodies to break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates into energy they need vitamins and minerals that act like enzymes at the cellular levels. Therefore IV therapy increases their strength, it boost their performance, and it allows their bodies to recover faster.
Patients that will benefit the most from IV Boost are those that have undergone Gastric Bypass surgeries, because of their vulnerability to the malabsorption of B vitamins. This occurs because the duodenum and a segment of the upper jejunum are bypassed during surgery, and these are major sites of absorption. Another reason for the malabsorption of B vitamins is due to the small amount of gastric acid and digestive enzymes produced by the small gastric pouch formed during surgery. The lack of B vitamins in these patients has led to difficulty in learning and concentrating, as well as, generalized fatigue.
Patients who take Vitamin C after surgery have a faster recovery and healing time. This is because Vitamin C plays an important part in collagen production, and collagen as we all know provides support for the skin and structural integrity thereby improving healing. IV therapy can obtain the necessary blood levels of Vitamin C require for faster healing to occur after surgery, without, the side effect of diarrhea seen with oral supplementation. Although Vitamin C plays the most important role in healing, the other vitamins provided in our IV Boost are great for the skin.
When stars need to shine at a party (or recover from one), they get a Vita-Infusion Facial. While an aesthetician tends to the skin, a registered nurse or a doctor starts an IV filled with vitamins C and B, calcium gluconate, and magnesium chloride—a modified version of a vitamin mixture that has been studied for its effect on chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Patients get an energy boost and “a nice glow, probably related to vasodilation,” says Norman Leaf, an associate clinical professor of plastic surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. You can expect skin to glow for about 24 hours when amino acids are added to a basic vitamin drip.
Our experienced medical staff are also experienced Paramedics. A small needle will be introduced into the skin to infuse the IV vitamins and minerals after it has been anesthesize with topical lidocaine; therefore, there will be almost no pain. Most patient only feel some pressure/warm sensation.
The IV BOOST infusion contains vitamins B6,B5, B12, B-complex, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium gluconate. Others have a specific combo for what is needed such as one of our best sellers, the “Hangover BOOST”
Approximately 15-30 minutes, while comfortably sitting in one of our SPA chairs with soothing music or TV, a massage can be provided at an additional cost and a bottle of spring water will be provided.
You might experience a warm sensation in your upper body and you might have a taste of vitamins shortly after the infusion, therefore is important that you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of cold water which will be provided.
