IV therapy is under attack for the bazillionth time by a reporter who also happens to be a Med student at a NY-based medical college!
Over the years, I have encountered several critiques as people pondered the impact of infusions or vitamin infusions on human health.
Infusions can barely cause a dent to the revenue generated by over-the-counter vitamins. The supplement industry is a major player in health and wellness economics! However, most of them are loaded with preservatives and don't fall under FDA regulations.
That's why it's crucial to take fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamins A, D, and K orally (since they retain their physiology after passing through your stomach, reaching your intestinal biome for absorption). Equally important is taking water-soluble vitamin supplements intravenously as prescribed by your doctor! At Juvanni, I tailor your infusion cocktails!
Vitamins for your IV cocktail are prepared at compounding pharmacies, federally and state regulated, and prepared by licensed chemists. Since these are mostly not covered by insurance, they become out-of-pocket expenses (just like your oral vitamin supplements).
Various concentrations of these supplements exist! A well-known formula for IV Infusions is known as Myers cocktail, which combines trace elements your body routinely needs! If you compare a vitamin cocktail to a food recipe, Myers cocktail is similar to a mild broth which may come in handy when you are feeling a little dehydrated or under the weather. IV vitamin and mineral cocktails can be customized to your age and your bodies requirements.
Most infusionists are nurses who provide you with Myers cocktail because it's pre-prepared, cheaper and doesn't cause any problems. At Juvanni, I craft your cocktails for the anti-aging of your skin and hair. I like to prepare full meals and not just a simple broth. Your skin isn't just the largest but also the most expensive fabric you'll ever own. It covers your existence and shields it from the outside world. Your skin is the farthest away from your gut! Nourishment you eat doesn't always reach its outermost layers! Did you know that your hair is simply an extension of your skin. As you age due to the lack of important minerals and nutrients it fails to regenerate robustly, thereby also causing hair loss!
As your gut ages, your skin experiences terrible trickle-down economics. Nutrients rarely reach post-menopausal or post-andropausal skin as efficiently as in the young. Regular users of IV skin infusions report feeling more energetic and stay healthy! My favorite cocktail at Juvanni is for skin pigmentation. In my opinion, correct combinations of vitamin C and glutathione are simply remarkable.
I hope this information helps you make better choices! As always, I welcome your feedback and infusion stories. Please text or call 914-368-6609
