Intravenous vitamin infusion
The vital essential vitamins (vitamin B1-12, C, D and minerals (glutathione, Zn, Mg), if lacking, can lead to a poor sense of well-being In our hectic lifestyles, it’s easy to become either deficient in these nutrients or to miss out on absorbing them due to other medical conditions.
Therefore, intravenous infusions of vitamins and minerals can have many benefits for the health and well-being in our lives.
What are the main vitamins?
- B complex of vitamins can lead to increased energy levels and higher efficiency of our metabolic function.
- Similarly, Infusions of vitamin C and glutathione via the glutathione drip can have positive effects on our health as well as our skin. These are used as skin “brightening and lightening” infusions.
- Meyer’s cocktail often involves a combination of these vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, Glutathione, Magnesium and Vitamin B complex.
Vitamin C Infusion (Skin Infusion)
Skin brightening infusion is a combination of vitamin C and glutathione working together to help brighten the skin from the inside out! Along with fantastic skin-brightening attributes, this combination of nutrients can help the body eliminate toxins and improve sun-damaged skin.
While these infusions are mainly used to brighten and improve the luminosity of the skin, they also have a beneficial effect on the body’s immune system. It is sometimes considered as a treatment for pigmentation issues, so talk with Dr Sam and the medical professionals at Samara medical and cosmetic clinics about your options for this treatment.
The infusions are injected into the body intravenously. To achieve the best results, treatment should be repeated weekly for up to 12-14 weeks.
Following this initial treatment schedule, maintenance infusions can be carried out every 6-8 months to maintain results.
With the initial 12-14 week treatment, results can slowly and continuously improve over time. To maintain results, ensure that one-off maintenance treatments are continued every 6-8 months for ongoing benefits.
Both vitamin C and glutathione are powerful anti-oxidants and have a tremendously beneficial effect on all the organs in the body as well as the skin.
Glutathione acts to reduce the production of melanin in the melanocytes of the skin and this enhances the brightening effect.
While these water-soluble vitamins are safe in the majority of patients, the importance of sun protection can not be overstated. Strict sun avoidance and sun protection with SPF 50+ must be practised indefinitely.
Over 50 years ago, Dr Myers was looking for a successful treatment for fatigue. What he discovered has been found to be effective in the treatment of migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, muscle spasm, respiratory infections and many more. Today, Myers’ cocktail is a combination of vitamins, including vitamin C, glutathione, vitamin B complex and magnesium, and is administered for overall body health. Although helpful for a multitude of medical conditions, most people will benefit from improved immune function and higher energy levels once administered.
The vitamins are mixed into a 100ml normal saline infusion bag and infused into the patient via a butterfly needle into a suitable vein. The entire procedure takes somewhere between 15-20 minutes. In general, most patients will have two infusions approximately 1-2 weeks apart. Maintenance is up to the individual, while most opt to have regular infusions 4-6 weeks apart.
The Myers’ cocktail infusions will see an elevation in mood and overall body health generally after the first or second treatment. Regular infusions will maintain healthy vitamin and immunity levels.
The high doses of vitamins delivered directly into the vein lead to a high plasma concentration of the vitamins. It is this high dose that delivers the positive effects into the cells of the body. The immune system and other systems in the body are therefore ‘primed’. The positive benefits of the infusion include greater energy levels and a higher cognitive performance.
The vitamins are all water-soluble so whatever is not absorbed by the body, will be excreted through the urine. Most patients experience no complications with the infusions. There is no pain or discomfort during treatment.
Vitamin Injections (Vitamin B12 & Vitamin D)
If you’ve ever felt completely exhausted or experienced fluctuating moods, one of the causes could be a lack of the important nutrient, vitamin B12. The body needs vitamin B12 to complement neurological function and assist with red blood cell formation. Increased vitamin B12 in the body has a positive effect on mood and vitality.
Another vital nutrient that we can be deficient in is vitamin D. Vitamin D supports the immune system, helps with the absorption of calcium, keeping bones strong, and assists with healthy cell growth.
It’s possible your doctor or naturopath has recommended vitamin B12 and vitamin D supplements, but often, oral medications are not easily absorbed into the body.
Vitamin injections provide these vital nutrients directly into the muscle so you can be sure to have prolonged benefits to the immune system and other systems of the body.
The area is cleansed and the vitamins are injected directly into the muscle.
These vitamins are injected deeply into the muscle, so the vitamins are slowly released into the bloodstream. This means you will have a steady and noticeable improvement over time.
Vitamin B12 injections show benefits that last up to 3-4 months. Vitamin D injections can elevate vitamin D levels in the body for up to 12 months.
The slow release of vitamin B12 and vitamin D delivered into the intra–muscular layer allows for long lasting benefits to the immune system and the health of bones and joints in the body, as well as elevated mood levels and combating fatigue. These vitamins are also important for the feeling of happiness and euphoria.
The injections are particularly beneficial if you are lacking these nutrients in your diet or have a low absorption of the vitamins through the digestive system.
There are no complications associated with these vitamin injections. They are administered with a small needle, so there may be minor agitation at the time of the injection, but there is no pain associated with this procedure.
