Today we're talking about immunity and how Vitamin IVs and Booster Shots can contribute.
What is immunity?
Immunity is defined as the ability of an organism to resist a particular infection or toxin. It is your body’s ability to defend itself.
In today's current health crisis, your immunity has never been more important.
ReSet Lounge is pleased to partner with Dr. Jessica Hutchins and Dr. Dan Neides from Inspire Wellness to offer high quality, preservative free IV nutrients that boost your body’s ability to fight infection.
Why should YOU and your loved ones have a nutrient IV??
2020 has proven to be an incredibly stressful year. This COVID-19 pandemic has all of us functioning in a heightened state of alert. Fears over our health, the health of our loved ones, managing remote work and schooling, coupled with frustrations over not being able to enjoy our usual activities have our stress levels the highest we have seen in over a decade. According to the American Psychological Association, “Current stress levels are similar to the levels seen in the 2008 Stress in America poll during the Great Recession.”
Stress burns thru nutrients. Survival is the body’s total focus when the stress response is activated. This means that your body is going to focus energy to your heart, lungs and muscles. Magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C are driven to these power centers preparing the body for fight or flight. The stressed state in which all of us are currently functioning burns through essential nutrients while counteracting the effects of cortisol and adrenaline.
Additionally, our food is now grown in nutrient depleted soil and after sitting on a shelf for weeks or months presents with a much lower nutrient content. Even if we were eating nutrient rich foods, the rate of poor absorption is sky high due to the imbalance of gut bacteria. Many commonly prescribed medicines decrease vitamin absorption. A common example are proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) which decrease B12 absorption.
At some point your bucket overflows and now you are constantly in a nutritional catch-up mode. IV nutrient therapy bypasses any absorption issues and results in much higher nutrient availability than oral supplementation would.
Glutathione is the most abundant antioxidant in our bodies. In fact, virtually every organism on Earth has some glutathione in its cells. This “master” antioxidant is produced in the liver and protects the human body.
“Several studies indicate that higher levels of glutathione may improve an individual’s responsiveness to viral infections. In particular, glutathione is known to protect host immune cells through its antioxidant mechanism and is also responsible for optimal functioning of a variety of cells that are part of the immune system.” (NCBI, Endogenous Deficiency of Glutathione as the Most Likely Cause of Serious Manifestations and Death in COVID-19 Patients)
Because of stress, poor nutrition and so much to detoxify, it’s safe to say most of us would benefit from a boost of IV nutrients periodically and especially during this time of increased demand.
ReSet Lounge Offers IV Therapy & Glutathione Shots Every Two Weeks
This Saturday, September 12th from 9 AM - 12 PM, we will be serving up Glutathione Booster Shots for $50. We will also be offering two IV mixes – The Immune Boost and The Energy Boost – both include Vitamin C, B complex and hydration. The Immune Boost has more Vitamin C than the Energy Boost (15 g versus 10g). For either of the “Boost IVs”, an RN will deliver a 400 mg boost of glutathione via your IV line and you will receive a 2500 mcg injection of B12 toward the end of the infusion session.
