Let’s dig in and look at intravenous vitamin infusions. The questions we are looking at answering: Are they a waste of time and money?
What are they exactly?
An intravenous vitamin infusion is basically a huge rush of antioxidants to the system. When taken, these vitamins boost energy levels, brain function, alertness and more. In addition, certain boosts containing NAD help with the anti-ageing process.
What is NAD?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide – we bet it’s all clear now….! NAD is a coenzyme found in every living mammal. It aids in the process of transferring food energy into our cells. As we age, the coenzyme begins to decrease. Infusions containing NAD can help.
What does the process entail?
It’s very straightforward involving a drip. This is administered prior to pre-assessment and having filled out details and information via a standard questionnaire. Whilst the drip is attached you may feel slightly strange but this soon dissipates.
And the effects?
This depends upon the vitamin combination used. Boosts offer heightened senses which in turn help increase confidence and ability. Sleep is enhanced alongside the ability to awake feeling fresh the next morning. Energy slumps are a thing of the past and you are able to give everything in terms of exercise.
How often should you use them?
This completely depends upon your goals, the combination of vitamins and many other factors and is something we discuss with our clients in depth before going ahead. For some individuals, the intravenous vitamin boost is part of their regular fitness regime (alongside a balanced lifestyle of course). For others, it’s a great way of rebooting the immune system as a one off.
How long do they take to administer?
Again, this depends on the type of boost you are receiving. On average however, they take between 60 and 90 minutes. During this time you get the chance to lay back and relax. Catch up on some reading, social media or simply do nothing. That’s got to be an additional positive.
So to answer the original question, we believe that the intravenous vitamin boost is not a waste of time. Taking time out to look after yourself is NEVER time wasted and should be embraced where possible. In terms of the cost benefits, a vitamin boost is designed to make you feel vibrant and alert once again. The combination kick starts your system allowing for heightened senses and a fresh outlook. That’s money well spent!
