Custom TailoredIV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Nutrition therapy is a protocol of feeding minerals, vitamins, and amino acids directly into the blood and is used to fix intracellular nutrient deficiencies.
IV treatment with nutrients is a very effective treatment since we can provide very high doses of nutrients safely into a vein that would not be tolerated if administered orally. Vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids and certain other vital nutrients may have a remarkably potent drug-like effect when given directly into a vein, but without the side effects often seen with prescription drugs. Oral consumption of these high doses is just not possible as a result of absorption limits from the digestive system. All the compounds we use are natural and are safely administered intravenously.
Intravenous treatments are exceptionally successful since they bypass problems associated with oral administration, such as stomach upset, absorption difficulties, and lack of effectiveness, with no gastrointestinal side effects that could restrict dosing. A good example of this is vitamin C, which may only be obtained in rather tiny quantities orally prior to inducing stomach upset. By comparison, very large doses of Vitamin C, that can be quite useful for the immune system, may be administered safely and with no GI side effects.
How Does it Work?Foundation Blends
Virility, Inc. takes an innovative approach to Nutritional IV Therapy. We are quite a bit different than typical clinics with our primary focus and core philosophy based on tailoring treatment to the Individual, rather than mass marketing "one size fits all" IV options. We offer four standard foundation blends that are then fine-tuned and customized for the patient, depending on his/her specific requirements and desired outcome.
The Hydration Foundation blend is designed to replenish electrolytes and completely rehydrate the body at the intracellular level. This is a favorite starting foundation among athletes as an aid in post-workout muscle recovery. The hydration blend is a useful tool in an elite athlete's arsenal to maximize repetitive training intensity. This is also a great choice for those who must quickly recover from the "hangover" effect caused by alcohol consumption.
Enhanced Performance Foundation
This blend is designed as a starting point for those looking to perform at maximum capacity with sustained strength, focus and energy output, and should be administered 24-48 hours prior to the key activity, athletic competition / performance date. This blend builds upon the Hydration blend with the inclusion of B12 and additional performance and recovery focused amino acids. Of course, non-athletes may benefit from this blend too, and is great for those who want to look and feel their very best or power through work.
The Energy blend is effective for those who are suffering from fatigue and need immediate revitalization and restoration of energy. This blend includes essential amino acids as well as highly concentrated B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 designed to provide a substantial lift in alertness and energy. Patients with Vitamin B deficiencies will enjoy the immediate relief from sluggishness and lethargy. This blend also has a positive impact on mood and general sense of well-being.
Detoxification & Immunity Foundation
The Detoxification & Immunity foundation pairs effective nutrients such as Magnesium Chloride with B Vitamins to aid in the detoxification of your cells. These compounds are combined with EDTA (a chelating agent) to attach to and eliminate heavy metals within your body. Moreover, this powerful blend also addresses potential dehydration issues frequently caused by compromised health or excessive use of alcohol, by restoring proper hydration at the cellular level.
The physicians at Virility, Inc. can customize any IV Treatment to treat a specific patient condition or concern. Our physicians may elect to begin with a foundation blend (listed above) and combine any of the additional components listed below. The list below serves as an example of treatment add-on compounds, and is not a complete list.
Glutathione (GSH) is an antioxidant in plants, animals, fungi, and some bacteria and archaea. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is capable of preventing damage to cell structures caused by environmental and biological factors such as heavy metals and free radicals.
Several independent studies have indicated the effectiveness of carnitine in the management of cardiac ischemia and peripheral arterial disease. Moreover, carnitine can reduce stress by keeping cortisol levels in check.
Vitamin D is well-known for its numerous health benefits, such as lowering risk of Type 2 Diabetes and improving fertility, but few people may be aware that recent clinical research suggests that increasing blood serum levels of Vitamin D may improve symptoms of depression and anxiety.
B Complex is a combination of five B Vitamins that play a vital role in cell metabolism, by converting food into energy. B Complex helps to restore energy to fatigued bodies, while improving mental/cognitiive functions. Patients feel more energetic, sharper and focused throughout the day.
The compounds listed above represent a small sample of the IV Add-ons that are available for use in our customized treatment blends. For a more complete list, please contact us or schedule a consultation.
