Can an IV Treatment Give you Glowing Skin?

If you are like most people, you’ve likely taken the external skincare approach. You rub all sorts of expensive creams, oils, and lotions to strengthen and improve your skin, slow down its aging and give it that beautiful glow.

But, you no longer need just this plain old boring skin care approach. There is another way to care for the body’s largest organ – by taking sort of an inside-out approach. No longer a luxury service for celebrities, you can now get vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants delivered right into your bloodstream through an IV; and all in the comfort of your home.

 

How to Get that Inner Glow?

Rubbing that pre-bed lotion on your hands is beneficial. But true health comes from within, and things aren’t different for our skin.

Our skin needs several nutrients to remain elastic, look good, and age more slowly. Some of these key nutrients are vitamin C, B-complex, and glutathione.

Does your skin look and feel dull? Let’s take a look at each of these key nutrients that will help make your skin glow.

 

Vitamins for For Optimal Skin Health

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for skin health. Specifically, this nutrient prevents oxidative stress to the skin and promotes collagen production.

Oxidative stress occurs when the body can’t fight free radicals. These unstable atoms travel inside us and damage cells, which leads to premature aging. Vitamin C stops these molecules and prevents them from causing any damage.

Collagen – the most abundant protein in the body – is essential for skin health. The protein provides structural support and allows our skin to look good and remain vital. The more we have of it, the better.

 

B-Complex

B-complex is a term that includes several vitamins. Specifically, B3 (Niacin) plays a vital role in providing healthy hair, skin and nails.

Each B vitamin has unique roles in the body. Together, they improve our health, make us feel good, and vitalize our skin. The B-complex is a blend of (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6) they support metabolic function and promote cell growth. This is important to note because our skin is constantly regenerating. So, by getting enough of these vitamins, we provide the body with the building blocks it needs to maintain healthy and glowing skin.

 

Glutathione

Glutathione is the “master of antioxidants”. This powerful antioxidant prevents oxidative stress and keeps our bodily cells healthy. Thus, it slows down the natural aging process and reduces the risk of certain diseases. Glutathione aids in detoxification of the liver. It’s health and normal functioning is essential for good skin health. This powerful antioxidant helps fight free radicals and will give you an added energy boost. With a happy and healthy liver, your skin will look healthy, hydrated, and refreshed. A lot of people call it the glutathione glow. You end up getting that skin glow we all want!

Are you missing out on the benefits of NAD+?

Part1 

What is NAD+?
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a coenzyme with two forms (an oxidized and reduced form). In its oxidized form, it is known as NAD+, and in its reduced state, it is known as NADH.
NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It promotes health and prolongs the lifespan of the person, and it has even been called an anti-aging molecule. This potent molecule has the potential to deliver therapeutic opportunities. It helps to attenuate the effects of chronic conditions and aging on the human body, especially the brain.

How NAD+ Benefits the Body?
NAD+ acts as a helper molecule because it activates and helps produce molecular reactions by binding to essential metabolic enzymes in the body. For example, there are proteins in the body called sirtuins (responsible for carrying out many biological processes) requiring this coenzyme for proper functioning.

Biological Processes Requiring NAD+

  • Extracting energy from nutrients (cellular respiration)
  • Gene expression
  • Epigenetic and posttranslational modifications
  • Regulating mitochondrial function
  • Protecting and Repairing DNA
  • Preservation of chromosomal integrity
  • Calcium signaling

In common words, NAD+ is the essential molecule for living. But, our bodies get deficient with this molecule as we get older. It is the reason people begin to feel the effects of aging and become more susceptible to age-related illnesses as age increases. One way to supplement

NAD+ in the body is through IV therapy. It is a holistic way to help the body fight against diseases and aging to make a person feel healthier and more youthful.

What Is NAD+ IV Therapy?

Element IV Therapy offers the option to receive intravenous infusions of various vitamins and supplements. These infusions promote certain aspects of health or increase the overall feeling of wellness. Infusing the body with NAD+ through an IV drip ensures 100% bioavailability from the molecule. There are also oral supplements of NAD, but it is difficult for the body to absorb NAD+ this way, and results are not guaranteed. IV therapy is a safe and efficient way to supplement the coenzyme in the body.

NAD+ IV Therapy Benefits

  • Promotes healthy brain functioning slows down cognitive decline
  • Decreases chronic fatigue and boosts energy levels
  • Regenerates the cells and Boosts metabolism
  • Slows aging and reduces body inflammation

Benefits of NAD+ Infusion Therapy for your Brain

This overall improvement in mental sharpness contributes to their general feelings of wellness. The most noticeable effect of getting old is a decrease in cognitive function. A simple NAD+ IV infusion improves neuron function by regenerating and protecting them against damage. It causes increased mental cognition, a higher ability to focus, and enhanced memory function.

NAD+ Infusion Therapy Boosting Energy Levels and Metabolism

The coenzyme infusion administered IV helps provide energy to the cells of the body at a molecular level and contributes to a healthy metabolism. A good functioning metabolism is vital in dealing with weight management and other health issues.

Candidate for NAD+ IV Therapy

A person suffering from fatigue, reduced energy levels, sluggishness, and mental fogginess may benefit from this type of IV treatment at Element IV Therapy. Replenishing the NAD+ levels in the body can drastically decrease these feelings and provide additional benefits. People suffering from chronic conditions and certain age-related illnesses are also excellent candidates for these infusions. It may also be beneficial for healthy people, e.g., it may help athletes enhance their performance and endurance. It also speeds up the recovery times after vigorous exercise or an injury.

Bottomline

Nicotinamide is a beneficial therapeutic molecule because it plays essential roles in many different biological processes. It can be used in various ways to maintain healthy organ functioning and neurological systems in humans. Call us to schedule your Element Anti-aging NAD + infusion today

Understanding the New Rules of Hydration Status on the Body and IV Therapy

Understanding the New Rules of Hydration Status on the Body and IV Therapy

Understanding the New Rules of Hydration Status on the Body and IV Therapy

What is Dehydration?
Dehydration results when the utilization or loss of fluid exceeds the intake. The body needs adequate hydration status to carry out its normal functions.  If the lost fluids are not replaced, you will get dehydrated. Any person can become dehydrated, but children and older adults are most prone to develop dehydration, and the consequences of dehydration are more pronounced in these age groups. Dehydration can be classified into mild, moderate, or severe dehydration, depending on how much fluid is deficient in your body.

What Causes Dehydration?
Anyone can develop dehydration if there is not enough water intake.  Most people presume it can only happen in hot weather or with vigorous exercise, however, it can occur in any climate. Severe vomiting and diarrhea are the most common cause of dehydration in children. Older adults are also at increased risk because of a naturally lower volume of fluid in their bodies, they may have metabolic disorders, or are taking medications that enhance the risk of dehydration. Additionally, minor illnesses, such as infections affecting the bladder and lungs, can lead to dehydration in older adults.
Mild to moderate dehydration can be reversed by drinking more fluids or utilizing IV Therapy, but severe dehydration requires immediate medical treatment.

What are the Complications of Dehydration?
Dehydration has been linked with gastrointestinal, circulatory, urological, and neurological disorders. When there is dehydration, the body will not carry out its functions properly and may develop the following complications.

  • Urinary and Kidney Problems: Kidney stones and urinary tract infections are
    more common in people who experience prolonged or repeated bouts of dehydration.
    Severe dehydration can even lead to kidney failure.• Hypovolemic shock: It can be considered one of the severe complications of
    dehydration that can be life-threatening. The low fluid status in the body can cause low
    blood volume, resulting in a drop in blood pressure that also decreases the amount of
    oxygen in the body.
  • Heat injury: A person usually perspires heavily during vigorous exercise. He may
    develop heat injury if the intake of fluids is not adequate. The severity may vary from
    heat cramps to heat exhaustion. It can also lead to potentially life-threatening heatstroke.
  • Neurological Manifestations(Coma or Seizures): There is a role of electrolytes
    such as potassium and sodium to transmit nerve signals. If there is an imbalance of
    electrolyte concentration( most likely in dehydration), there may be a mixing of normal
    electrical messages resulting in involuntary muscle contractions. In severe cases, there
    may be loss of consciousness or seizures.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Dehydration?
The signs and symptoms of dehydration may vary depending on the degree of dehydration.
Signs and symptoms of mild or moderate dehydration include:

  • Thirst
  • Dry, cool skin
  • Headache
  • Dry or mouth
  • Low urinary output(Not peeing very much)
  • Dark yellow urine
  • Muscle cramps

Signs and symptoms of severe dehydration include:

  • Not peeing or having a small amount of very dark yellow pee
  • Sunken eyes
  • Feeling dizzy or fainting
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Very dry skin
  • Rapid breathing
  • Sleepiness, confusion, lack of energy, or irritability

Signs and Symptoms of dehydration for babies and children are
different than for adults:

  • Sunken eyes and cheeks
  • The soft spot on the top of the skull(depressed fontanels)
  • No tears when crying
  • Dry tongue or mouth
  • Dry diapers for 3 hours
  • Irritability, Sleepiness, lack of energy

Do I need IV Therapy if I’m not Thirsty?
Thirst is not a reliable early indicator of the body’s need for water, particularly in older adults,
because they don’t feel thirsty until they have already developed dehydration. So, it is crucial to
enhance the water intake during hot weather or illnesses.

What is the Bottom-line?

Dehydration is a condition due to the body’s reduced hydration status, impairing the body’s
ability to function properly. A person may develop signs and symptoms depending on the degree
of fluid loss. The medical treatment of dehydration in adults can vary, but you may benefit from IV Therapy and mobile IV hydration.
