Boost Your Immune System This Fall With Vitamin Infusions

This year, with COVID-19 still spreading, it’s more important than ever to protect yourself. Frequent hand-washing, getting plenty of sleep, wearing a mask, social distancing, and eating a well-balanced diet can help you stay healthy. 

But it still may not be enough to give your immune system the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to operate at its peak. Infusions give your immune system this necessary boost, both safely and effectively. 

At Balboa Medical Center & Spa in Encino, California, we’re committed to helping you live your healthiest life. Dr. Amir Raeesy and our experienced care team offer vitamin and nutrient IV infusions to optimize your immune system and keep you virus-free this season. Keep reading for answers to some commonly asked questions.

How do vitamins and nutrition help during the flu season?

Your food contains the nutrients you need to keep you healthy and well. However, in today’s busy world, it can be challenging to eat enough fruits, vegetables, plant-based proteins, nuts, and seeds that your body needs to function optimally. 

Without the proper nutrients, your risk of getting the flu or other viruses increases. Since eating perfectly balanced meals and snacks all the time isn’t practical, vitamin and nutrient infusions fill in the gap. This balances your nutrition and boosts your natural resistance against infections.

What about oral supplements?

Oral supplements must go through your digestive system before the vitamins and nutrients can enter your bloodstream. Infusions, on the other hand, have a big advantage over oral supplements because they deliver essential vitamins and nutrients into your bloodstream directly. 

Since infusions avoid the digestive process, your body can absorb higher levels of vitamins and nutrients. This provides you with many health benefits, including:

Infusions also improve your cognitive performance, commonly known as brain fog. This helps you stay more alert and active during stressful times, like flu season and the COVID-19 pandemic.  

What’s in a vitamin and nutrient infusion?

At Balboa Medical Center & Spa, your specialist takes your medical history and current health needs into account to recommend a vitamin and nutrition blend for your specific needs or condition. Some of the most popular combinations include glutathione and the Myers’ cocktail. 

Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells, but it can also be given intravenously. This antioxidant helps protect and maintain your immune system, as well as treat or reduce the symptoms of different health conditions. 

Named for its developer, John Myers, MD, the Myers’ cocktail is a well-known combination of vitamins and nutrients, including B vitamins, such as B12, magnesium, and calcium.

Where can you get vitamin and nutrient infusions?

Vitamin and nutrient infusions can boost your immune system when combined with a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle habits. But not all infusions are created equal. Be sure to seek treatment from an experienced medical team such as ours at Balboa Medical Center & Spa.
