immune system stimulating cocktail

Under the weather?

Are you feeling fatigued, sick or just under the weather?

An immune cocktail can make you feel better immediately!!!

immune system stimulating cocktailAn immune stimulating cocktail is an IV “mini-drip” that contains the major complex of vitamins and minerals that are essential to a healthy, functioning immune system. As these substances are injected intravenously, the tissues are saturated with antioxidants at a much higher concentration that is possible than by taking the same vitamins or minerals orally. Hence, this injection can work to help you feel better almost immediately!

Those who have experienced these cocktails describe the hours or days following the injection as being alert and productive without the agitation and subsequent energy drop many people feel after drinking coffee. More importantly, those who have a cold or illness feel as if the injection allowed them to succeed in overcoming their infirmity. In short, an immune cocktail provides you with focus, energy and vitality all day long.

IV nutrition therapyThe antioxidants in the injection include the B-vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine and cobalamin), vitamin C, magnesium, selenium, calcium, zinc and trace elements. Although all of these vitamins and minerals should theoretically be available to us in the foods that we eat, the reality is that most are easily depleted by poor dietary choices, medications, infections and environmental toxins.

A (very common) symptom which indicates you may need an immune boosting “cocktail” is lethargic fatigue or recent onset of an illness. Additional symptoms include frequent infections, headaches, muscle aches, digestive distress or possible canker sores.

This safe and painless process takes approximately 30 minutes and will be performed by the licensed infusion technician at BCNC. Administered in the comfort of a modern infusion space, you can take a short break to relax in one of the many recliner chairs. As a bonus, you can also get a free PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic therapy) treatment to improve microcirculation and further stimulate immunity while receiving your infusion!
