IM Boosters – an energy hit for the time poor
IV Health offers intravenous infusions and IM boosters (Intramuscular injections).
Our IM boosters on offer have been chosen by our medical staff based on commonly seen medical symptoms and vitamin deficiencies.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A supercharged antioxidant that is active in both water and fat (where most other vitamins are only water soluble). ALA is an essential component in the production of cellular energy and is able to recycle vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up, making them last longer in our body.
B12 “methylcobalamin” plays a key role in nerve function and the formation of red blood cells. B12 Deficiency can lead to anaemia, fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, pale skin, issues with the GI tract, numbness, depression, muscle weakness, vision loss and memory loss.
Vitamin B12 also plays an important role in the breakdown or metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and has a role in protein synthesis, which makes it a vital element in weight management.
Made up of these six B vitamins — B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 — b complex plays an important role in keeping our bodies running like well-oiled machines. These essential nutrients help convert our food into fuel, allowing us to stay energised throughout the day. While many of these vitamins work in tandem, each has its own specific benefits — from promoting healthy skin and hair to preventing memory loss or migraines.
This powerful intracellular antioxidant is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, our bodies own detox pathway and the immune system. Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver. It assists in the removal of heavy metals from the blood and can help reduce alcohol induced damage to the liver. Due to its anti oxidant nature, it also reduces oxidative stress and has anti ageing properties.
A mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady. Adults who consume less than the recommended amount of magnesium are more likely to have elevated inflammation markers. Inflammation, in turn, has been associated with major health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
This is a trace mineral that plays a key role in the metabolism and has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect cells from damage. Among healthy people, selenium deficiencies are uncommon. But some health conditions — such as HIV, Crohn’s disease, and others are associated with low selenium levels.
These are made up of minerals the body requires in trace amounts. Comprised of zinc, selenium, copper and manganese.
Vitamin C is one of the most important water soluble vitamins for your body! Vitamin C is commonly used in our intravenous vitamin infusions both as an antioxidant and to boost the immune system. As an immune booster, vitamin C reduces inflammation and promotes healing. As an immune booster it removes free radicals, reduces oxidative stress, promotes collagen production and energy release.
Zinc is a trace mineral that is an essential component of over 300 enzymes in the body and therefore contributes to many important functions in the body including energy production and immune system support.
