Understanding Vitamin Therapy

Our bodies regularly get vitamins through nutrition and supplements, but what happens when you need a boost because your immune system or metabolism is sluggish? There are multiple ways to increase your dosage of certain vitamins, but there’s a catch. Even though you’re putting vitamins into your body via eating healthy, there’s a limit to how much your body can absorb at one given time.

Did you know that the way that food breaks down, you’re only absorbing about 50 percent of those vitamins that you ingested? There’s a better way that allows your body to absorb more of what you need—in fact, it offers a 90 percent absorption rate.

Vitamin Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is an option that puts you in the driver’s seat. With this method of vitamin delivery, you can invest in your body by getting more of what you intended.

Not only do you get higher absorption, but it works faster, so you’ll enjoy the benefits quicker and more efficiently.

Have you heard of Lipotropic injections? These are injections that introduce a highly specialized dose of ingredients to help target cholesterol issues, fat issues, along with helping to detox the body. They do this, all while helping boost your metabolism.

They start with a base of B12, which we all know is great for your body, but are you familiar with other B vitamins, or only the “popular ones” that get spoken about. Have you heard of Inositol? This is also known as B8, though it doesn’t get the same exposure that B12 or B6 does, you’ll want to know about the benefits this B vitamin can do for your body. Here’s a neat tip, it’s actually a sugar! But, this sugar does great things like helping your cell membranes, helps metabolize fat, and aids in nerve synapses. It also helps with serotonin levels and interacts with insulin. In fact, Healthline states that… “research suggests that additional inositol in the form of supplements may have numerous health benefits.”

What other ingredients will you find in B12-MIC IV ?

The C in MIC is Choline. According to Medical News Today, Choline supports DNA synthesis, helps metabolize fat, and helps with cell maintenance.

The M stands for Methionine. This is an essential amino acid you find in things like meat and dairy. This important nutrient acts as an antioxidant to help detoxify your body. According to the National Library of Medicine, this powerhouse also is… “required for growth and tissue repair…and is involved in many detoxifying processes…protects cells from pollutants, slows cell aging…”

Because it’s an injected source of vitamins, there are a few important things to know before getting started. First, always work with a practitioner that is both well-qualified and that you trust. Also, with it being an injection, it’s always smart to consult with your doctor to make sure you don’t have any contraindications such as kidney disease because people with kidney disease lack the proper filtration that your body needs to process excess minerals. It’s always important to know what your body is deficient in. Know what you’re lacking, so you can seek out sources that will help you. Take your health back into your hands and find solutions that are effective and can help you feel better.

Vitamin Therapy has been around for over 50 years. The more we learn about potent combinations, the more we’re able to create specialized mixtures that enhance and help our bodies.

A Firefighter’s Testament on IV Nutrient Therapy

There’s no denying the massive benefits of IV Nutrient Therapy for the average person, but what happens when the treatment is put to the ultimate test? Trent McMinn, a local firefighter recruit, recently discovered IV Nutrient Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa and learned first hand the value of this treatment while training at the fire academy. As you can imagine, the training to become a firefighter is no small task— constant physical demand, grueling climate conditions and lots of heavy gear. We caught up with Mr. McMinn to discuss how IV Nutrient Therapy helped him in his challenging training to become a firefighter.

How long have you been doing IV Nutrient Therapy and when did you first see the results?

I have been doing the IV Nutrient Therapy for the past two months, and I honestly felt the results right away, I noticed I was sleeping a lot better and deeper, and when I’d wake up in the morning it wasn’t the normal drag out of bed, I felt great.

What do you do for and how does this treatment benefit you on the job?

I am currently a Firefighter recruit going through the fire academy and will be on the fire truck starting in January after the academy ends. So far the benefits have been amazing due to the physical and mental stress that comes with being in the fire academy. I have noticed my body being able to recover faster and I feel more alert and have a better sense of well being.

What made you want to start IV Nutrient Therapy?

Once I got my job offer for the fire department and was about to start the academy I knew I was going to have to be able to perform at very high levels for the next 15 weeks and wanted to give my body the boost it would need to stay healthy, I started looking around at maybe a vitamin B shot, but then found the IV Nutrient Therapy offered at Colair and decided to give it a shot.

Are you planning on sticking with these treatments? 

I am planning on sticking with it because of the daily stresses that come with the role of being a firefighter even after my academy is over. I want to stay healthy and be able to provide the service the community deserves.

So there you have it. If IV Nutrient Therapy can help a gentleman survive the demands of fireman training, imagine the benefits for yourself? Not just for fatigue, this treatment is also aides with hypertension, infections and among many others, depression. Flying commercial or stuck in a tight public space? This treatment helps boost ones immune system so you’re less likely to catch that cold that’s been going around. Not unlike the Myer’s Cocktail, IV Nutrient Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is a vitamin-mix ‘push’ treatment that takes around five minutes and is administered by our on-site Registered Nurse.
