Fighting off the Flu with a Twist on Vitamin C

Fighting off the  Flu with a Twist  on Vitamin CAccording to the CDC, last year, Florida was one of the states with the highest records of influenza outbreaks, causing unprecedented amounts of hospitalizations and deaths. This year, we’re uncertain of how threatening the flu season may prove to be, but we do know that the flu will affect all ages. Taking precautions is essential. Young children, individuals with weakened immune systems, and adults 65 and over are more susceptible to the dangers of the flu, as their symptoms can quickly exacerbate into pneumonia or other disease states. As the immune system becomes weaker, the ability to fight off viruses and bacteria becomes more difficult and problematic. It’s critical to stay healthy and amp up the immune system; that’s why so many people are looking into preventative treatment methods.

IV Therapy Advantages
Immune boosting vitamin C can be absorbed in fairly large quantitates by the body, but even more so by IV therapy. When given intravenously, larger amounts are absorbed and not excreted, than by taking a supplement, or by eating fruits and vegetables alone.

While eating a healthy diet and taking vitamins is beneficial, IV induced vitamin C is able to enter the bloodstream, infiltrate tissues and pass through the blood-brain barrier easier than with traditional supplementation. At HYDR8 Wellness Center in Sarasota, they are the experts at IV therapy. Each patient is evaluated and given the best combination of vitamin and antioxidant combinations, based on their individual health concerns the patient will sit in a relaxed environment while being treated. The highly trained practitioners at HYDR8 take great pride in caring for their patients and getting them well. All treatment is under the medical direction of HYDR8 and many physicians in the area refer their patients to HYDR8 for their alternative health and wellness options.

IV therapy is the fastest way to replenish vital builds and vitamins your body needs!
