Vitamin C –Vitamin C, in particular, has gained attention for its potential immune-boosting properties. It is an antioxidant that can help combat free radicals and reduce inflammation, which is often elevated during infections. Some studies have suggested that high-dose vitamin C administered intravenously may shorten the duration and severity of viral illnesses.
B Complex – B vitamins boosts energy and ramps up the growth of immune cells when facing an infection. It also helps to minimize stress and mental fatigue, as well as improving mood. Studies have also shown that it can help improve depression and anxiety symptoms. They are vital to the body’s cellular functions. They also support healthy brain function. In fact, data shows that vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) can help prevent Parkinson’s Disease.

It is also vital to bone and cardiovascular health. One study also found that low magnesium levels may be linked to
Zinc- Zinc is another essential nutrient that plays a role in immune function. It is involved in various cellular processes and has been shown to inhibit the replication of certain viruses. Administering zinc through IV therapy may help ensure optimal levels for immune support.
Glutathione- Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in the body that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and inflammation. It has been proposed as a potential treatment option for COVID-19, as the virus can induce oxidative stress and inflammation. Some IV therapy providers offer glutathione as part of their immune support packages.
