About IV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a specialized treatment that’s not related to surgery — it’s a way to give you an optimal dose of customized vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. The specialists at Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, offer pre-packaged IV therapy, as well as customized IV treatment, mixed by a registered pharmacist to meet your individual health needs.
IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV (intravenous) therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment used to deliver vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream. When you consume nutrients or take oral supplements, the full amount you take doesn’t always make it through the digestive tract and into your bloodstream. Since IV therapy delivers the nutrients into the bloodstream, you can get a larger amount and you know that the optimal dose is quickly delivered to every cell throughout your body.
At Strax Rejuvenation, you can get 1 of our premixed nutrient packages or the in-house pharmacist can customize the nutrients to meet your needs. Either way, all of the nutrients are mixed together and administered in 1 IV treatment.
What nutrients are administered intravenously?
While the in-house pharmacist can individualize your IV treatment, Strax Rejuvenation frequently administers nutrients such as:
Myers cocktail: This was the original IV therapy that contained nutrients to promote overall wellness, boost metabolism and support the immune system. It contained various amounts of magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, B complex, and vitamins B12, B5, and B6.
Glutathione: Glutathione is often included in IV therapy because it’s a powerful antioxidant. It’s essential for detoxifying your body, keeping your metabolism working, and preventing cell damage. IV therapy with glutathione supports the immune system and boosts healing and recovery in people who are sick.
Vitamin C: Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, is often a key nutrient in IV therapy, because it’s such a vital antioxidant.
What health conditions may benefit from IV therapy?
Every function in your body relies on a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals. If you’re deficient, the lack of nutrients can lead to health problems, affect your energy, and slow down healing. Being sick or stressed can also cause some nutrients to get depleted. IV therapy is an excellent way to either get nutrient levels back to normal, or to get a higher dose of nutrients to treat a health concern.
IV therapy may be used to:
- Facilitate recovery from surgery
- Improve athletic performance
- Boost energy
- Support the immune system
- Fight oxidative stress
- Help treat a variety of health conditions:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Cardiovascular disease
- Muscle spasms
