Strengthen Your Winter Defense: IV Therapy Offers an Immunity Boost
Reinforce your protection against colds, flu, and COVID-19 with the natural benefits of IV vitamin therapy. Discover how IV vitamin therapy can boost your immunity this winter.

You've received your vaccine, practice frequent handwashing, and steer clear of family and friends who are sick. Want an extra layer of protection against winter illnesses? 

IV vitamin therapy can fortify your immune system. Celebrities, including Jane Fonda, Adele, and John Legend, tout the benefits of making  IV therapy part of their wellness routines. Read on to see what it can do for you.

At Primary & Urgent Care South, our clients love IV therapy, especially during cold, flu, and COVID-19 season. 

Let’s break down everything you need to know.

Unpacking IV therapy

You’ve seen IV therapy on TV hospital dramas or maybe from your own experience. IV therapy is the quickest way to introduce hydration, medication, or nutrition into the body. 

At Primary & Urgent Care South, we offer custom formulations, delivering a liquid mix of vitamins and minerals. The concentration of nutrients is higher than what you get in oral supplements. Importantly, these nutrients absorb quickly when directly introduced into your bloodstream.

The duration of an IV infusion session ranges from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on its purpose and type. During the infusion, you can relax, nap, read, listen to music, talk on the phone, or watch videos to pass the time.

Understanding our immunity formula

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), many Americans suffer from chronic nutritional deficiencies that contribute to immune system performance. 

Enter our immunity formula. It combines vitamins, fluids, and electrolytes to elevate your immunity. These include:

  • Glutathione
  • Vitamin C
  • Zinc sulfate
  • Hydrating electrolytes

There’s no need to worry about “overdosing” on vitamins. Your body either stores vitamins in fat for later use or controls levels of water-soluble vitamins by excreting them through your urine. 

Pure saline IV therapy

Also in demand during this season, our pure saline IV therapy aids hydration, a key element in illness prevention and recovery.

Dehydration heightens vulnerability to viruses. Water flushes toxins, maintains optimal blood volume, and reduces inflammation. When unwell, the body loses fluids through symptoms, and inadequate fluid intake means insufficient replacement of essential water and nutrients. Cells, predominantly water-based, expend energy combating sickness.

More benefits

We also offer IV infusion formulations that can help: 

  • Improve  energy 
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Improve sleep
